This week in Beers: #OTTBeerDiary Days 1111 through 1117

This post is a continuation of the 2015 New Beer Every Day Beer Diary Challenge, #ottbeerdiary.  Over the course of 2015, I drank at least one new beer every day. Please read the background in the link above, and enjoy reading about the most recently tasted beers below. This year I may deviate from the diary format in some posts, hoping to concentrate more on the locations and the breweries I am enjoying. If you’d like to join the challenge as well, let me know in the comments below. You can catch up on all of our posts as part of the challenge under the tag ottbeerdiary.

Style: Sour Ales

Producer: Bokkereyder

Alcohol content: ~6.0%

Serving Style: 0.75l Bottles

One of the best parts of beer Travel is when you find yourself taking part in an impromptu bottle share of some super-special beers with a great group of people. This included outstanding Bokkereyder beers: Dalton Jack, Dalton Joe, Dalton Averell, and Dalton William, which are 1&2 year Lambic blends in Cognac, Madeira, Muscatel, and Port barrels, as well as Oloroso (aged in Oloroso sherry barrel) and Noble Ghost (with Fantôme Saison). Throw in a Toots blended by the Vezekering, and some samples from Zenne y Frontera batches 1 and 2…and it’s a legendary day.
