Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Aroma of fresh tart blueberries and maybe a hint of red wine vinegar. Pours plum red with very little film. Taste is tart with riccotta cheese, underripe blueberry, and slight tart orange. Tart and sweet without too much funk. A little understated. Easy to drink.

2013-02-02. Rich pink body with a small white head. 3++ Interesting aroma is sort of oaky and floral, bit of funk. 7+ Interesting flavour of sweet blueberry syrup, floral whispers, modest sourness and tartness around the edges and in the finish. Average plus palate. Nice, enjoyable. Bottle at Sourfest, Buffalo

Draft at Capones. Pours a murky maroonish amber with light pink head and blanket long lasting lacing. Nose of blueberries, some brett funk and spice. Pronounced fresh blueberry flavor with hints of lemon and spices - ginger, allspice. Thin body, slightly tart with a nice blueberry pie finish.

Uber Blueberry-y... a touch funky, a touch sour, very refreshing, gonna save my other bottle for a warm afternoon... medium body, a touch spritzy, nice beer, definitely a fruit beer rather than a sour ale...

22 oz poured into a tulip. Most unique color I’ve ever seen poured from a bottle. Pink/ purple/ plum color. hazy with a few particles. Interesting nose is a mix of fresh blueberry and a vinegar tartness. Initial taste is berries and other fruit, midway is a bit acidic and vinegary, mellows into a wonderful blueberry finish. Tart, as had been expected, but not over the top, very drinkable.

pours violet with a pink lacing. Incredible frozen blueberry nose with other berry notes. Slightly sour with a quaffable palate incredibly refreshing. Some tartness. Overall rather effervescent.

Beerman6686 (4301) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
This poured a purplish yellow color with a pinkish hued head. Aroma was fresh blueberries, light funk/cheesy notes, and light yeast. Flavor was much the same, not very tart, but not arfitifically sweet, with light wild characteristics in there. Good, not great.

Bottle at Ginger Man with a few Ratebeer folks. Pours amber with a thin head. Big blueberry flavor without a lot of sweetness, light malty notes, and a hint of tartness. Good stuff.

25oz bottle at Gingerman NYC kindly shared by RamyG4. Pours hazy purple with a thin white head. Aroma is of blueberry and raspberry with a hint of peaches and citrus. The blueberry is not overwhelming in the taste and the beer is tart but balanced, really well controlled. Really lovely beer.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Bottle at The Ginger Man. Blueberry, spice, mainly ginger, just a little sourness, nice balance.
