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!

Bottle. Pours purple red in color with a soapy lavender head that settles to a spotty film and collar. Aroma is tart lightly funky wet corks and blueberries. Taste is yeast watery and light tartness with blueberries and oak some malt and musty finish. Palate is thin fizzy and crisp with a dry finish. Pretty nice beer, but was hoping for even larger blueberry flavors.

mcberko (6474) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy vibrant reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma is huge on blueberries, with not a whole lot else. Flavour brings out blueberry, perfume, some acidity, and moderate oak barrels. The blueberries are not sweet at all and the perfume cuts down on he blueberry. Overrated, but decent stuff.

Hazy dark reddish pour with an off white pink pour very attractive color ... aroma is amazing and of sugary, tart and blueberry with a light funk .... taste is light and tart with a blueberry and dry funk to it ... sadly light on the body, and berry soda like ..... if the taste matched the aroma this would be a 4+ brew, but its still a very nice brew

Keeping up the trend of excellent beers somebody shared the first of two fantastic beers from Cisco. This was a lighter sessionable offering that was the perfect change of pace. If not for the New Glarus Serendipity that I had a few weeks later this would have been the best fruit beer I’ve tried in a while.

Aroma / Appearance - Reddish purple and warm it glows with life. A light opaque edge and clean white complete the image. Blueberries, white pepper, and a general fruity feel make me feel as though I am walking through a pick your own blueberrry field during peak season.

Flavor / Palate - Tart blueberries are slightly sour but lack the acidity of a true sour. A sweet short lived transition carries into a gentle finish. Compare it to high powered American sours and there are better choices. But if you want a slightly different fruit beer than the normal check out a fine release.

Bottle but I have also had this on tap as well super fresh. Pour has a crazy purple blueberry color and a thin cap of off white head that holds very well. Aroma has such amazing punchy fresh blueberry, medium tartness, berry skins, seeds, and oak. The bottled aroma is just as good as the draft version. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation average. Flavor packs in the authentic blue berry flavors, berry skins, seeds, light tartness, and a finish of berry sweetness. Really an incredible beer and far surpasses anything else I have tried from them.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours a rich blueberry blush color with a couple fingers of light pink foam that laces a bit... On the nose its light and subtle, traces of cereal malts, unripe berry, and a touch of tart funkiness. The palate is light and refreshing with a touch of tart fruit and earthy dust, seltzer water, citrus rind bitterness, light barrel funkiness with a lingering earthy bitterness.

Draft at Capone’s, and this one blew me away. Pours hazy magenta with a pink head. Nose was freshly picked blueberries, earthy and lactosy. Tasted very tart, very fruity, very lactic, with a great blueberry flavor, a hefty lively carbonated palate, and a crisp tart fruity finish. This is a great one.

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On draft at Capone’s. The beer appears a radiant blue purple hue with a soft, pinkish head. The aroma does indeed bring the promised blueberries, along with funky brett. Brett character has a large presence throughout, overpowering the fruit to some degree. Still, a tasty beer. Perhaps not as complex as I was hoping. More yeast and bugs and a larger serving of blueberries might liven things up. Spritzy carbonation and a bit of a prickle on the tongue. lingering brett in the finish. The aftertaste doesn’t last too long. Certainly worth a try.

On tap at Capone's. Poured a purplish color with a small sized, pink tinged head. Aromas of blue berries and some funk. Tastes of the same - more funkiness with fresh berries.
