vyvvy (4396) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap at the brewpub - Pours lightly hazy golden orange with a white head. The aroma has apricots, citrus, cheese and funk that is very lambic-esque. It has a medium / light body with light semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with lemony citrus, cheese, sharp stone fruits and citrus that is on the sharp lemon/grapefruit side. The finish is very acidic on the lactic / citric side. Quite nice.

Sample from a bottle from tderoeck. Many thanks! Orange/pink colour, minimal white head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, berries and light apricot. Sour and funky, fruity but lacks some complexity. Good.

Bottle. Shared at the Beermoth in Manchester. Rather pissed by this time so apologies for short rate. Apricot tart aroma. Pinot noir grapes; raspberries. Musty perfume. Superb. Taste is apricot, tart. well carbonated. Dry finish, balance is superb. Acid is off the hook good. Incredibly good. Fantastic.

Benzai (9359) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub split by four. Nice lightly unclear orange color, decent sized white head. Aroma is light to moderately sweetish, some peach, apricot and raspberry. Very fruity anyway. Taste lightly sour, very fruity again, raspberry, apricot, some peach. Soft and round, balanced and full of flavor all at once. Very nice indeed.
