    It works well in terms of extracting just a bit of fruit character and color rather than the beer being a fruit bomb. Jester King and De Garde (and I'm sure others, but those are the first two who come to mind) have been using this method effectively for a while. I really like Detrivore (the version of this that JK does from Montmorency vs. Balaton).

    They're great, much more subtle fruit and more drinkable in my opinion. I like La Vie en Rose and Detritivore more than their first fruit counterparts.

    You're a first fruit counterpart.

    Modern Times does it often, as well.

    LOL. I'm hoping at least one of you is a fan of Indian movies.

    While La Vie and Detritivore are great this is just a wildly inaccurate statement that is a blatant smear campaign against the first use fruit beers. .....IMO

    You should stay away from a first use pineapple gose.

    I think the difference in Detritovore and MvB has more to do with the base beers being saison vs AWA, but who knows...

    Second use fruit, same base, but stainless fermentation vs Barrel aged iirc.

    Different base but you're right about the fermentation.

    Tried out a local brewpub the other day. They don't have temperature control, they don't aerate their wort, and they don't chill the wort before transferring to fermenters. According to the menu their imperial stout is 1.081 original gravity but only 6% abv, it tasted like flat malt syrup. The IPA tasted like swamp water. I'm honestly baffled by everything they're doing.

    Where are you? This isn't a place I might stumble into, is it?
