3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[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

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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?

750 ml to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks watson1977). Looks good; a cloudy blueberry with fizzy light pink head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart, oaky, and a little funky with a nice blueberry backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Good stuff!
