BOLTZ7555 (2704) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle generously shared by Sparky! Violet/lavender pour with a light cotton candy head. Aroma is vibrant fresh blueberry, straight off the vine. Earthy, somewhat floral. Some will call this blastphemous but the aroma on this is more pure blueberry than Blabaer. Truly devine! Flavor shows some tart, unripened fruit, Brett elements, funk, mild cheesiness, vinegar, and some lemon zest that adds acidity. Not terribly sour, just enough to add complexity. Light, refreshing, delicious!

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep red with creamy light pinkish head thin head. Smell of funky, blueberry, fruit, sugar and overall sweet smelling. Taste is a tart sour wild yeast , some light oak, sweet malt.. Very light and refreshing beer on palate with a clean finish. Good carbonation. Refreshing beer.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Funky blueberry nose, tart blueberry palate. Really sour which is ok yet kind of expected a more sweet fruity beer. Solid overall

deekyn (1037) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
A - pours hazy purple blue with apart no off white head. S - almost like a bretted berry pie. Fresh tart berries, Canned blueberries pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg. Hints of acetic, lemon, oak and Brett. M - bright tart mf with a medium light body. Average palate. T - lemon juice and blueberry pie filling up front to a palate of bretts, gin, and sweet simple sugars. End is metallic and lightly funky. O - pretty good. Linear but tasty. 3.5

HonusWagner (1222) - Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Just an excellent interpretation of the style, aroma of nice clean blueberries with some slight lactic tartness. Drinks like a clean berliner with low tartness, a crisp malt character, and blueberry all throughout. Great stuff.

alobar (2616) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2013

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle
Aroma:Tartness, blueberry
Appearance: Cloudy, reddish/purple with a purple hued head
Taste: Starts a bit sweet, then tart, following by a nice vanilla flavor, before finishing with a raw blueberry flavor
Palate: Tart fruit, light body
Overall: Really unique, and tasty beer. Fruit is a component and doesn’t dominate. The tartness makes this very refreshing and the oak adds a smooth undertone.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a clear chestnut with a fairly thick buff head. Strong, malty aroma has notes of yeast and blueberries - and a hint of oak. Sharp flavor’s malty core supports blueberry and subtle oak tones. Sharp texture is somewhat firm and fizzy, leaving a woody and blueberry finish. Maybe not Cisco’s best, but worth drinking for a good cause!

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
[5109-20130202] Bottle. Light blueberry fruit potpourri aroma has a peppery note in the background. Hazy, bright red body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Pepper blueberry fruit tart flavour has a dry toasted finish. Medium body has a tart feel. Really interesting, lost a bit of smokiness hidden in there. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5
