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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 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.

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!

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.

750mL bottle, no date, $19.49 at Olive Tree Market in OB a number of months ago. Clear medium pinkish garnet and a fizzy one finger pink head, not much retention. Smells of tart blueberries and their skins, some mild lactic sourness. Very enticing. Flavor follows, nice and tart, fresh blueberry skins, light lemon, little oak. Bone dry, scant bitterness. Sourness peaked at a 3-4. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation that foams up in my mouth. Tasty--not crazy complex, but pretty tasty and refreshing.

Tons of blueberry and Brett with a hoppy dry finish. Good carbonation, great stuff but not one of the woods sours

Bottle that I took to jtclockwork’s place for a tasting. Pours a hazed purple hued amber with a medium sized white head. Smells like sugared blueberry pancakes, with a touch of spice, and just the faintest hint of spicy brett. Medium bodied, tastes like a bunch of dry bitter blueberries. Lovely, lovely stuff. Soft blueberries and a bit of spicyness on the finish. I would love a soured up version of this.
