    Relax, they're also available in 75 cl, got 5 of those last year.... But I wanted more flexible control over dosage, they are 10% alcohol, so I got a case of 33 cl this year.

    How "woody" does the Petrus taste? I tried some Innis & Gunn a few times and it just didn't suit my palate.

    It’s just slightly so. It’s now my favorite sour. Really excellent.

    Barrel aged beer is the latest meme that I just can't jive with. Most tend to be too syrupy. Not a good look!

    Look for lighter styles that are aged, maybe some with fruit. Avoid anything johnny-come-lately bourbon or whiskey aged porter horse shit - most of these are cough-syrup milkshake shit. Innis and Gunn collabo = hard pass. Belgian blondes, or saisons aged in oak with/without some interesting fruit added to a second fermentation, plus some Brett can do some pretty fun things with beer. You're from chicago, so grab anything from Goose Island's belgian series, and taste up the flight. In other words, grab Sofie (like champaign), Pepe Nero (if you can find it), and a Matilda, or Lolita and see what you like from a barrel aged american wild/fake-belgian sour. Warning, most american barrel aged sours are over soured. If you can get some true belgian lambics try a basic oude gueuze from Boon or Tilquin to give you a base line for your palette.

    or, grab some Coors. Cause you're a fussy little bitch.

    If your piss tastes like banana bread then you're diabetic, but why are you drinking your own piss?

    Banana CAKE. Banana bread is a marketing myth perpetuated by unhealthy people pretending to make healthy choices.
