Was forced to open this a little sooner than I would've liked, but great sour overall. True blueberry flavor wasn't very apparent, but delicious sour, funk and great carbonation. I'm definitely hoping to have a chance to taste it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Kraddel’s TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. So this is the U.S. answer to Cantillon? Let’s 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 ol’ Cantillon but a pretty good attempt nevertheless.

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.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David, thanks! Hazy purple with a small pink head that quickly dissipates and leave no lacing. Aroma is of intense blueberry jam, oak, acetic notes and herbal/floral presence. Taste is sligthtly sweet and moderately to heavily sour with blueberry jam again, lactic and acetic presence, wood and slight herbal/floral notes (mostly covered by the sourness). Medium body. Leaves the mouth dry. Not easy on the stomach, but really fun to try but all those blueberries! I liked it!

Pours a hazy purple with pink head, no lacing. Aroma is full of blueberry jam, some oak. Taste is all about the blueberrys, big lactic and acetic notes, oak. Low mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty good but sharing this one is a good idea.

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!

22/IV/13 - 750ml bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-351) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!
Cloudy nice ruby red to pinkish purple beer, big aery pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of fruit, very funky, actually not so pleasant. Lemony, orange flavoured vitamin effervescent tablets, pretty bad. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Tasty: same orange flavoured vitamin tablets, lemony, orange peel, very sour. Aftertaste: bitter as well, sour, dry, tannins, lemony. Not a big fan of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting.
Rougeâtre, col blanc léger.
Arôme st fruité avec ce bouquet myrtilles laissant un léger côté fleuri, grains sur une note aigre boisée de chêne.
Palais est ici bien aigre avec le rajout d’une base fruitée légèrement acidulée. Retrouve ce profil typique américain des ’sours’ le tout couplé à une pointe boisée de chêne qui ajoute une certaine complexité et une fine aigreur. Pas mauvaise, mais pas ma préférée de Cascade.
