Also, Lindemans are far too sweet for my tastes, due to their over the top backsweetening. Proper lambics shouldn't taste like that IMO.

I recommend Hanssens Oude Kriek.

A lambic so sour it will turn your face inside out.

Entering two of my beers in next month's national homebrew competition to see what feedback I get. Should be exciting.

It is definitely weird. I suspect the number of beers sampled was no more than 21.

As far as I can see the only rationale for drinking a beer like this would be if your face looked better inside out. Or maybe if you've just come back from a few days on Pluto and will drink anything. Same goes for gose - brewed with salted water.
Perhaps there should be a breakaway Beer for Masochists thread...

Agree - not a fan of anything sour. Don't like saisons either, and think "farmhouse ales" are just as bad.

For beers here in the U.S. the website beeradvocate.com is pretty good. Sorry of someone else already made the suggestion.

Tilted barn has a website, and they are currently only open once a week. Several of the small breweries in VT don't produce much volume and it can be difficult to find their beer, so i would advise doing some research before you go.
