  1. cool video. Better than the not-so-sour ale it describes. This stuff gets sweet real fast. As Gertrude Stein said, “There’s not enough there there.”

    • very good post, aurally!

      I’m pretty sure that the G.Stein quote is “there is no there there” in reference to returning after years abroad to an Oakland, CA she no longer recognized. I think we can both agree that this beer is more like a sidestreet hotel with magnificent curtains than a longed-for childhood home.

      I agree that the sweetness really catches up quickly.

  2. Mine was a paraphrase. No (Steinian) excuse for it being in quotes. A sour ale is a sour ale is a sour ale.
