UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Thanks thomas15 for sharing. Poured from 750mL a deep purple/red with a bubble gum pink head. Smells of pure funk with slight blueberry. Tastes the same as it smells but with a nice tart finish. Fantastic sour.

Was forced to open this a little sooner than I would've liked, but great sour overall. True blueberry flavor wasn't very apparent, but delicious sour, funk and great carbonation. I'm definitely hoping to have a chance to taste it again.

2012. Unlike the previous batch, this looks like a blueberry beer: it's blue! Smells like a fresh crop of blueberries too. Phenolic at first, quickly subsiding to a berry-centric profile with minimal tartness. Shows more maturity than its previous vintage. I like this.

Delightfully tart with a hint of blueberry. Surprisenly tasty herbal body that ends with a pleasingly dry finish. Wishing I had more right now.

750ml bottle. Once again courtesy of Todd. Thank you... Cork had a little tension built up and was stubborn to open but eventually conceded. Bottle opened with a small pop, non-gushing, and yields a deep semi-lively violet purple and topped with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of a fruitcentric blueberry forwardness, a touch of sourness, sweet tarts, and a whisper of oak. Nice sour fruit character lacking any bugs or funk in the nose ... Flavors of muted and earthy blueberry notes initially. Not tremendously sour or acidic in any way to begin with but more of a focused lively semi-dry blueberry fruit persuasion with more of a developed sour aspect as it warms. Fruit continues through the middle and finishes on an off-dry note. Lighter bodied than what I was expecting with a sprite lively mouthfeel. Lacking any type of funk character or deeper level of complexity but a pretty nicely conceived sour fruit beer overall. This grew on me more as I worked my way through my glass.
