December 4th - A Word on Beers X-mas Calendar

December 4th and this is what was in my two X-mas calendars:
 
The Great Mikkeller X-mas Calendar
Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Weisse Raspberry by Mikkeller
Very evident and kind of sweet raspberries in the nose. It almost smells like sweet raspberry jam. Taste is equally loaded with raspberries and has a nice yogurt-like acidity to it. This is a super crushable fruited Berliner Weisse, but to my taste, it would have been even better with a mouthfeel that was a bit lighter. Still a tasty beer though.
 
My wife's homemade X-mas calendar
North X Northern Bloc - Sorbet Sour by North Brewing Co. - Heavy raspberry and rhubarb aroma. This smells insanely nice! Taste is raspberry and rhubarb galore with a very nicely balanced acidity t back it up. I definitely get that sour sorbet feeling. This is a really tasty and highly drinkable fruited sour. The fruited sours from North Brewing Co. just never let you down!
 
Today was really close both of these fruited sour beers were very tasty. The North X Northern Bloc - Sorbet Sour from North Brewing Co. was maybe a bit better than the other, but a very close call. The feeling of raspberries and rhubarb was just crazy. With beers of this quality, it's not needed to choose one over the other. It's just to sit back and enjoy both of them.
 
All through December, I'm opening my two X-mas beer calendars. The two calendars are The Great Mikkeller X-mas Calendar and my wife's homemade X-mas calendar.
 
See you tomorrow!
