In short: A lightly funky, not-so-sour and very fruity ale with plenty of berries. Excellent
How: Bottle shared with friends, post Tap-NY 2012 Hotel party. Unfortunately a Danish-style sample on this one. Tick
The look: Cloudy dark red body topped by a small pink-ish head
In long: Nose is very fruity (all kinds of berries, not just blueberries) with a bit of funk. Taste is very fruity, sharp and clean, only a light sourness and mild lactic acidity. Oak remains discreet. This is as much a fruit beer (and an excellent one at that) as it is a Sour/Wild ale. Maybe because it was still young and the funk will transform the beer. I will eventually drink a full bottle of this and re-evaluate what it has evolved, but a fresh sample proved to be a superb mildly funky fruit ale. Anyway, it was well worth crushing thousands of blueberries to make this great beer, just like it was well worth drowning hundreds of babies to make that great Nirvana Nevermind cover.

Thanks Reg for sharing this. Pours a pinkish clear red. Nose starts with some barnyard funk followed by the blueberries. Quite effervescent, with citrus and lemon flavors mixed with blueberries. Sour, but not too acetic. It did have a cotton like dryness that had a aspirin like taste in the finish. The tartness was mild. A privilege to share a fine beer like this with my friends.

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. A real stunner. Has a very true blueberry character. Extremely fresh and highly tart. Great balance, nice acidic bite. Dries out modestly in the finish amidst full and sincere blueberry tang. Very, very good beer.

Bottle: The aroma consists of blueberries and just a touch of lemon. It pours a mostly transparent purplish-red with a touch of haze and a minimal head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of blueberry. The finish has light-moderate musty lemon and some light funk. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Reddish pour with some blueberry and tartness on the nose. Flavor is tasty with some tartness and blueberry along with some funk and yeastiness. Enjoyable and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours sort of dirty rutty red copper with thin off white head, cool looking brew. The aroma offers up tartness o-plenty along with thin whiffs of vague fruitiness almost too far away to smell. The taste is similar as this is largely acidic, dry mineral notes and crushed aspirin tartness. I suppose, like the nose, there are light vaguely fruity notes off in the distance that I’m having trouble seeing or tasting, so there’s that.
