Bottle… WPB Town Hall Meeting 2012… This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and burnt-orange with a fizzy, periwinkle head that never seems fully dissipates. The bouquet furnishes sweet blueberries intermingled with acidity and a touch of funk. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is tart and fruity with mild tannic bitterness. Fruity, tangy, minerally finish. Kudos to the ever-generous biggsbowler for sharing this beauty!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not as sour as I expected from Cascade, still very good. cloudy blueberry coloured body with pink head, and lacy. Some hospital disinfectant aroma. Smooth for a sour, more sour in the finish, and in the sediment.

Bottle. Pours purple with quickly vanishing pink head. Nose of fresh blueberries, oak, funk, wild yeast and acidic tart blueberry. Taste is same but with a slight bandaid note in the deep background. Still awesome, but I’m glad I drank this now. Medium body. Tartness if very mild and inviting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Barrel House. Cloudy ruby-brown pour with a medium thin fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of berries and yeast. Medium body with a midly funky undertone and flavors of blueberries, earthy yeast and citrus. The finish is fruity with a mildly tart blueberry aftertaste. Solid all around.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Silken blueberry juice and mineral angles delve into intelligent acidity in this soft and bubbly creation.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the purplish gown.
-Blueberry flavors are well integrated.
-Drinkability is quite high; this is an elegant drink.
-Bacterial complexity roams within, giving depth to the fruitiness.
Bottle; gros merci Martin et Michèle!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
2013-02-02. Dark pink purple body with a small pink head. 3++ Pretty interesting aroma, fruity, blueberry, very light funky undertones. 8++ Flavour is similar, modest sourness throughout, tart blueberry and dryish finish. 8+ Average bodied palate with nice carbonation. Lovely stuff! Not super complex but really lets the blueberries shine. They must have used a ton of fruit! Very nice. Bottle at Sourfest, Buffalo
