3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle, a slight pink/purple color with a white head. Aroma was slightly tart blueberries, with a dominant blueberry presence in it. A touch of oak I suppose, with a tartness to it.
I had the chance to try this one a lot of times while at Dark Lord Day (the day before and during), and just couldn’t get myself into it as much as my compatriots. It’s well made for sure, but I just personally didn’t dig it as much as the people shoving it my way did. Keeping my eyes open for their beer in the future though!

@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Clear bright red, as of it’s 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, as a road beer at THE Stout Tasting. Cheers to Bruce for sourcing this! The pour’s 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. It’s quite simple, but tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly purple pink hue, healthy glow and richly berry hued body. A frothy offwhite head atop dies to a decent ring, laces ok. Good colors and rich glow. Aromas are richer blueberry, a touch muffiny, quickly moving to sour lemons, sour berries, blueberry, touches of oak, bready malts. A bit pulpy, firm blueberry, a bit fuzzy and well carbonated. Initial is spritzy and prickly, well carbonated on the light end of medium bodied. Pulpy blueberry, lemony sourness, lactic acid, touches of yogurt and fuzzy carbonation hits the palate. Some bready malts, more yogurt, firm sourness blends with blueberry elements, lactic acid. Lemons, touches of fuzzy carbonation. Really enjoyable sour fruit ale, with a firm lactic presence, rich fresh blueberries, vibrant aroma and carbonation. A touch sweeter in flavor.. But overall, a very nice experience.

Purple with a white head.
Sour and sweetish aroma with blueberries.
Bacon-like flavour with some berries and strange solvent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a very dark plum-blood red color with a medium sized foamy pink head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was funky, tart, sour, vague berries, pepper and Sweettart candies. the flavor was dry, tart and sour with funk, chalk and strong tart berries. Very long dry, tart and sour berry and funk finish. Medium body. Interesting.
