Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a dark mahogany color, ruby highlighting at the stem, with a modest layer of tan head foam. and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was grandma’s attic funk, and fruit as blueberry & raisin, with light, cookie-like malt. Medium bodied, tart to the edge of sour, with moderate earthy & tannic astringency, and lively enough carbonation to successfully escort all the notes.

On draft at the Barrel House in Aug 2014 with Erica, Matt. Bright bright red pour with white head and soapy lacing that disappears. Tart red wine grapes on the tongue with some dry tannins; good, robust body. Dry on the way down. Not a lot of blueberry noticed somehow.

Bomber. Darker pour. Tart blueberry skin aroma and taste. A bit sweet and jammy, but that gets overshadowed by the tart dark fruit. Good stuff!

750 mL bottle shared by me at Gus's house for a tasting. 2014 vintage. The pour is a bright ruby color
With a thin ring of white head and some decent lace. The aroma is great blueberry with a lovely sour character and a delightful oak complexity. The wood adds a great character. The flavor is really good. Sour up front but then it mellows out to a blueberry sweetness on the back end. The fruit is great and the oak adds such a mellowing tone. I wish this was more sour throughout. The mouth feel is thin and crisp. Greatly acidic first and just lovely. Carbonation is sharp and it has an oaky acidic finish. Good beer

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is sour, blueberry. Appearance is maroon, off white head. Taste is sour, then fades to blueberry, finishes minty. Mouthfeel is sour, very crisp carbonation and decent mouthfeel. Overall, pretty decent for someone not a fan of the style.

750 ml bottle at home. Pours mucky red with a purple hue, quickly dissapearing head. Very tart and jammy forest fruit aroma, some little nut as well. Lactic. Sour body, backed with a decent dose of sweetness. Taste is raspberry jam mixed with lemon juice. Tart and sour yes, balanced no.
