Bottle to snifter (brew3crew). Looks good; you can see the blueberry notes. Smells great; sour and fruity. Tastes good, but I think it will get better with age. Mouthfeel is good. Hella-tasty.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml C&C bottle. Ugly pour, light opaque maroon body with a smaller fizzy off white head. Aroma was blueberry muffin, cake batter, sour lemons, some odd Body Works blueberry hand sanitizer. Decent body, stronger bubbly carbonation, medium mouthfeel and a sour finish. Flavor is more sour than the aroma lets on. Blueberry, lemon, sourness, dry straw. Solid.

Bottle, as a road beer at THE Stout Tasting. Cheers to Bruce for sourcing this! The pourís deep, murky purple with a modest reddish head. The nose is earthy blueberry patch, sweet baked blueberry cake, a bit of woodland funk. The taste is mild lactic funk, plenty of blueberry jam and sweet cake. A bit of general herb. Smooth, lightly tart finish. Nice, bouncy, lively body. Easy to drink. Overall, a nice beer. Itís quite simple, but tasty.

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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep violet colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, pinkish purple head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is rich blueberries with a nice tartness, wheat malts with a light sweetness, florals, some funk, and a light wood. Flavor is similar. Blueberries with a light sweetness and wheat note, a moderate sourness, a light funk, some florals, and wood. Finishes dry, tart, fruity, and lightly sweet before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a somewhat lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid sour. Lots of blueberries with a nice tartness, some florals, wheat, and a light woody funk. Nice beer.

Bottle @ Kraddelís TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. So this is the U.S. answer to Cantillon? Letís see. Pours a deep hazy purple body with a small light pink head. Aroma is tart blueberry tones, horseblanket, hints of lemon and citric zest notes. Taste is blueberries, smokey meat tones, hints of tart horsey barnyard notes and dark berries. Medium to thin body, high carbonation. A nice sour; not quite par with good olí Cantillon but a pretty good attempt nevertheless.

@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Clear bright red, as of itís a classic Kriek. Aroma is funky wood and pale grains with a touch of fresh blueberries. Taste is nice and clean, medium sour and not too fruity. Notes of blueberry but also funky wood yeast. Big but restrained and fruity but not too much. Nice sweet/ sour balance.
