Bottle, from the Beer Dispesary, Apex. good aroma, yeast and fruit. Blueberry, oak, vinegar. Blueish red color, good initial head, faded quickly to nothing. Sour flavor. Light body, thin creamy mouthfeel, tart dry finish. It’s good, nice blend on oak and blueberries, appearance was a little odd, head disappeared quickly, blueberry gives it a funny color. But still a nice beer

Poured a deep purple color with aromas of blueberries, light wet oak, some tartness, and a touch of vinegar. Flavors matched the aromas, tart blueberries, funk and some light wet wood, enjoybale and really drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 vintage. Beautiful purple pour, just a hint of cloudiness and a billowy white head. Blueberry and oak in the nose. Sour in a mellow way - not as bracingly sour like some of the Cascade beers can be. Dry finish. Earthy and musty blueberry tannin finish. Yummy.

Light purple-red. Lots of barrel, touch of blueberry, touch yeasty, opening acidity, dash of fruit and almost a yoghurty lacto character.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014. Beautiful hazy purple. Genuine raw blueberry character shares equal billing with sourness that is more like unripened berries than anything, along with some subtle funk. A very drinkable sour.

Oh yeah, blueberry and lemon. Cloudy cranberry, no head. Taste is cranberry and a bit of blueberry.
