A Sour Tasting With Dr. Jeff This Weekend
Over the weekend, Dr. Jeff brought over a flight of sours for us to taste along with some pizza and besides the nice conversation and friendship, these were the standouts: Allagash FV 13, Perennial Von Pampelmuse and Allagash Farm to Face. He's done this before - here's the series of stouts that he brought earlier this Spring and one of the sours from earlier this summer. This time....I liked the two Allgash's, but the peach one stood out for me. I believe that they're brewed with different processes aside from being different fruits.
If you head to the links for each of the beers above, you'll see that the two Allgash ones score very high on BeerAdvocate but the Perennial one isn't scored. When Dr. Jeff brings and shares knowledge around various beers, they're always really good and/or rare ones. He's pretty passionate about beers and spends plenty of time at Binny's finding interesting things. Making pizza and sharing some of our pies with him seems like a very fair exchange everytime we do it.
