Pomona Island Tamaki I is a fruit beer from England. It's made with plums and grilled Hojicha tea added to a farmhouse sour. The result is a delightful blend of plums and tea. It's a playful beer that will be loved by some and disliked by others. Overall, a very fun experiment. De Ranke Kriek de Ranke 2021 is a 70% Belgian sour mixed with 30% cherry lambic. This is a beer that needs to be drunk fresh otherwise you'll miss the cherries. Since they are mixing two things instead of adding cherries to a lambic, you miss the complexity of the cherries that would evolve over time.
