Flanders Red Ale
Gose
Flanders Oud Bruin

some specific Saisons and Witbiers are also sour
although I defer to your considerable beer knowledge....I just wanna say....I LOVE Lambics, and classifying them as sour.....eh.....not sure I can totally agree. Lindehmans seems to be the biggest seller round KC parts, however if you can find St Louis, it's better. I like the Framboise (raspberry) OK, but Kriek (cherry) is better IMO. I don't find them to be sour. tart, and maybe a tad too sweet, but not sour. I like to mix them with a good wheat beer, cuts down on the sweetness, yet still allows the flavor to come thru.

Gueuze.....OMG! it'll turn your face inside out!
