So I drank my '12 NB Cuvee tonight. Wow... totally different then I remember. Even from the '13. Much more funky and sour. Still some of the barrel, but mostly a sour. Weird.
No kidding? It went sour?
I had a 13 maybe a week ago and it wasn't sour at all. Different from fresh, but not sour. I guess I'll have to hold on to at least one bottle and see what it's like with another year on it.
The Cuvee isn't the best beer in the world, but I really like it as a different treat to pull from the cellar every now and then. It's pretty unique.
Some of my favourite beers were unintentional sours. I hope my 3 cellared Cuvee's all go sour
Make sure you guys keep in touch when you drink your aged Cuvee. I will definitely be olding onto my 13 now for another year. I enjoyed it fresh, but with two years, a complete about-face. I'm curious if it is common for the beer.
Yeah, so if you are into sours and wilds, the Cuvee is for you. Pulled out my 2012 and it was a guuuuusher. Quite acetic, but in a pleasant way, and Brett-y. All the spices that went into it combined with the new character, makes it a totally unique beer. Honestly, I much prefer the aged, sour version. Really interesting. Can't wait for the new batches and I still have 2 2013's left.
