Maravilla SourSaddle Black

Maravilla Sour (6.5% ABV, bottle)
Purity Maravilla StoutFruit beers — not always my bag, but this is something special. Really nicely done, it’s labelled sour, but there’s nothing to shock a newcomer to the style. Pinkish amber in colour, it has lively carbonation and pours with a thick  off-white head that stays well. I’d describe the flavour as fresh raspberry rather than particularly sour, It’s fresh ad zingy, vibrant and very enjoyable. The finish even has a little fruit sweetness. (18-02-2018)

Saddle Black (5.8%)
Very dark brown / black, with a big, thick, tan head that stays well, the strongish brew is nicely done. The taste starts with Mocha coffee then gets more fruity towards quite a bitter finish. There’s some smoke, but spicy hop notes come through, too. The aroma is of light chocolate, with slight nutty, smokey notes. (25-03-2016)
