Cybercat (3277) - 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 (5414) - 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

Had at the 2013 St. Paul Summer Beer Fest, Great sour blueberry aroma, taste is floral blueberry, bit disappointing, decent

Damico (2561) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours so beautiful crimson unclear purple with a creamy white head with a purple hue. Aroma is also delicious, farmhouse funk and some fresh sweet blueberries. It is a fruit beer, but definitely has a wild yeast aroma. The body is lighter than expected, clean light berries with some funk rounding the whole thing out.

cpetrone84 (1372) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pour is reddish purple with a thin head and purple tint. Nose is heavy blueberry, faint raspberry, and some oak and light vanilla. Taste is a bit cough syrupy blueberry, assertive oak presence, light mint in back. Touch of tartness. Lighter body, heavily carbonated, fairly dry finish. Simple, not super bright, ok.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
From bottle at HOTB. Mild funky notes with predominant notes of blueberries, fresh and musty aromas. Light tang and medicinal funk. Dark blue-reddish hazy with thin pink lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays tart with lots of berry flavor. Musty and bitter with blueberry sour finish, light chalky acidic after. A bit of BandAid in the after, but not bad.

Notes only; bottle from the Beer Store in Southampton. Blueberry/strong sour/tartness, but a mild artificial flavoring.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a murky blood-black color with a medium sized foamy light pink head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish berry, biscuit and a faint herbal presence. The flavor was very tart and sour blueberry, cherry pits, and a dry and astringent herbal presence. Long tart and sour blueberry finish. Medium body. Interesting.

Bacterial (1521) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2013
This is a fun beer! Beautiful slightly cloudy purple pour with a light purple head. Nose is intense - blueberry is pretty intense, but it is proceeded by something tart / sour. Portableparty suggested ’wet cork’ and that might be it. Its something funky and oak-ish. I really like the nose on this. Taste is just a touch tart, complex and just a hint of blueberry in the finish. A fun beer for sure - lots of yeast on the bottom, could be an interesting one to age?
