From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Von Trapp Berliner Weisse

This is 4.2% Sour - Berliner Weisse from this NY brewery.  Nose
features lemon, fresh flowers, orange, and wheat cereal.  Taste
brings notes of corn, wheat,dry grain bread,and flaked grains.  At
best the level of sourness appropriate to the style can be called
"gentle". A drinkable beer but not a serious Berliner Weisse.

Overall Rating: Average
Flying Dog Vicious Hook Sour

This is a 5.3%  Fruited Sour with a red color that gets you thinking
about it's flavors of  passion fruit, strawberry, cherry and orange.
The nose is the same but fades quickly. The fruitiness is upfront
then blends into a sweet - barely sour middle and end.  If you're
new to sours this is fine as an entry level beer but it doesn't fit
the bill for those looking for a more serious sour.

Overall Rating: Average+
Having sampled over 7,500 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!
