Entries in Belgian-Style Sour Ale subcategory will most closely approximate, but might deviate from, lambic, gueuze or oud bruin subcategories, but do not fit other non-Belgian-style categories in this competition. For example, entries that exhibit distinct characters resulting from wood-aging might be more appropriately entered in the Wood- and Barrel-aged Sour Beer category. Other entries that represent significant departures from the other Belgian-style sour ale subcategories above might be more appropriately entered in the American-Style Sour Ale category. To allow for accurate judging, the brewer must provide additional information about the entry. This information could include the historical or regional tradition of the style, or the brewer's interpretation of the style. Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging.
