Maakun (4650) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2016
2015 version, 7.2% ABV. Bottle shared. Very dark ruby with dark pink head that leaves a big ring. Lots of cherries and almonds on the nose. When sipping the almonds take over a bit with berry pits, hay, still a lot of cherries of course. Then some dusty notes, light funk, lactic sweetness, twigs, more hay. Under medium sweet and sour with lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Very good fruits, but it doesnt work all that well with the base beer. Overall quite good though.

375 ml bottle from Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop (BBE 21/01/26 (sic)) Pours dark red / burgundy with a small pinkish head. Aroma of cherries with hints of brett and barnyard. Reasonable sweet flavor with a strong cherry presence and some brett and barrels. Only moderate acidity. Dry finish. One of my favorites among Mikkellers Spontan-prefix beers.

MonsterMagnet (1325) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle from SlackerMads, many thanks! Great tart cherry nose with a light funkiness. Taste is loaded with cherries, wood, bit of funk, earthy. Not overly complex, but oh so flavourful. Tart but not overly sour, a bit wine like, drinks like a 3.5% abv, lovely.
