Default Category for contest

I have two sour ales I want to enter but am not sure what category to put them in. Any thoughts?

1. A prickly pear sour ale. It's a blonde ale aged on prickly pears. The fruit is very mild (i don't even taste it but other have).

2. A cherry sour brown ale. Tastes almost like a Jolly Rancher, with a perfect mix of sweet and sour (but not sweet like a Flander's red or brown).

Both of these are similar in style to a Russian River sour, so more lactic and less sweet than flanders, some funk but not much. They don't really fit any of the sub categories but I need to pick one.

What to do, what to do?

If it doesn't fit in category 17 or 16E, I'd put it in 23.
