This is the first sour I've brewed that did this. 100% Pils, Wyeast Roselare, and tart cherry concentrate. Finished at 1.010 with my FG samples 2 months apart. 1.010 still freaks me out so I kegged it. Gentle acidity, cherry flavor balanced with Brett and Belgian fermentation character. Otherwise pretty clean. I'm digging it

That sounds and looks nice. Great head retention for a Sour beer.

Puzzling. I brewed 2 the same way and same day. Both got roselare. One got tart cherry concentrate and the other got pomegranate concentrate. Zero preservative good stuff from the same company. Cherry finished at 1.010 and pomegranate at 1.000

New Triple is really nice. First time dropping boil-off to about 7%. Removed my copper splashtastic sparge manifold. I believe it tastes fresher than my G Strong and Saison batches. Maybe it is my imagination?

My first Bo-Pils and third lager ever. It's pretty damn good. Thanks, Jon! I just kegged it on Monday with gelatin added Wednesday. The pictures aren't the greatest. The beer is still about 32 degrees so I couldn't keep the condensation off. I hope to get a better pic this weekend.

Yea, mon!  Looks great, Frank. Saaz coming through nicely? How's the malt balance?

Yes. The saaz flavor is perfect. The carbonation essentuated the bitterness that the hydro sample lacked. The balance is very nice. I think this will be a January regular for me. Here's a better picture after it warmed. Crystal clear. Head retention is amazing too.
