Maakun (1236) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Clear orange with fizzy white head that doesnít last more than 10 seconds, pours like a soft drink. Musty grains, rye bread, oranges, pineapple, cellar dust, plums, lots of champagne, leaves, some grapes, toast. Nice fruity tartness with dry and light bitter finish. Some sweetness throughout. Medium bodied with almost no carbonation. Intieresting stuff, it has some similarities to plum wine or dry champagne. Could use some longer lasting carbonation though.

Bottle. Right away I smell an essence of sour. Nice aroma. Appereance is picture perfect, photo worthy. Flavor does not match the aroma, but is still flavorful. Apples and honey in the taste notes.

vyvvy (4557) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a good sized white head. The aroma has sourness, ripe stone fruits, raspberries vinegar and bit of lactic acid. It has a a medium body thatís a bit crisp, but fuller than most sour ales and a lot for fairly soft carbonation The taste starts with stone fruits, vinegar, berries from the aroma and malt that balances to keep it from being very sour. The finish is fairly crisp and refreshing, I donít know how this thing is 10% alcohol. It doesnít taste like it at all. Not up to the norm for sour ales, but itís quite enjoyable and less expensive than most sours as well.
