3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours violet, definite pinkish hue, moderate to thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing. Aroma of unripened Blueberries, well at least Blueberry bushes. Its like unsweetened immature Blueberries. Tart on the tongue up front, backside is dry with a soft unripened Blueberry sweetness. Very clean this is. Comes across as very dry and very tart. Nothing off about this one. Not as big and robust as some of their other offerings, but it is certainly tart, fruity, and mouth puckering. Strong woodiness on the nose as well as on the tongue. I keep thinking to myself how clean this one is. The more I drink, the more I realize how dry this one is. My mouth is very much puckering after a few sips. While the Blueberry aspect is there, its not as strong as I would have liked. Either way, this is a very clean and well put together PNW sour ale. Comes across as very clean and very easy to drink. Easily one of the better Blueberry beers I have had, ever!

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.

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

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DLD 2012: Pinkish hue with a fizzy head. The profile was tart blueberries and white grapes, oak, wheat, biscuit, mineral, and a hint of tannins. The mouth feel was quite refreshing, sprite and lively with just the right amount of oak dryness. I really enjoyed this even with the high level of acidity. Nice!

Bottle: The aroma consists of blueberries and just a touch of lemon. It pours a mostly transparent purplish-red with a touch of haze and a minimal head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of blueberry. The finish has light-moderate musty lemon and some light funk. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

750 ml bottle split with Adam Jackson. 2012 vintage. Poured a hazy purple color with thin white head. Nose is mostly tart berries and light lacto. Taste is fresh blueberries initially then transitions to tart puckering wheat notes. Some Earthy notes and light booze. Light to medium body with a dry tart finish. Acidic and lightly sharp after taste. This is a beautiful sour and would love to grab a bottle and sit on it to see how it changes. Awesome!
