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 shared by jheath99. Hazy red with minimal thin white head. Aroma of blueberries. Taste of blueberries, sour and funk. Not too shabby.

Bottle from Hop City. Pours a hazy reddish amber, almost like a light grape juice, with a thin ring of cherry head. Aroma of tartness, fruit, and a slight oak hint. The tartness isnít as prevalent on the taste, but the blueberries really shine through.

Sampled at Rapids Liquor Tasting. Pours a hazy blue-purple with pink head. Aroma is blueberry! Taste is light sweetness then very tart. Not really my thing.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
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.

750ml bottle in a Tulip. Pours bluish purple with a pinkish head. Aroma of blueberries, tartness, some pale malts, and light oak notes. Flavor the same with a great blend. Average texture. A really cool beer.

750mL bottle drunk on 1/25 and 1/26/14
Black raspberry purple with lighter strawberry red tints. Fluffy white head is flecked with pink and recedes slowly to cover. Plentiful sediment in the bottom and tons of fine carbonation rising.
Blueberry skins in the nose remind me of Mysticís Vinland Two, yet there is some lactic tartness here that helps break up the blueberry. Light powdered sugar and vegetal notes seem to go hand in hand with the fruitiness, but itís faint and mostly passing. Medium to high strength of aroma, no alcohol noted, very little malt.
Spicy, tart, rich blueberry flavor is very authentic and well-done, it just seems to lack a follow up with much maltiness. A very fleeting sourness is interesting, but ultimately leads back to a lightly sweet blueberry flavor mixed with some light malt sweetness (white sugar-like). Tight, creamy almost, carbonation helps bolster the light body and certainly asserts this as a refreshing summer quaffer. Seems like this wasnít intended as anything more than a light, refreshing blueberry golden ale, but the oak and lactic character tease your expectations. Would have really liked more malt body, barrel character and sourness.

weihenweizen (1608) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours hazy purple with big pink head. Aroma is nice blueberry, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and big bubble lacing. Taste is soft malt with a hint of blueberry. Hoped for more blueberry.

DenverLogan (770) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Color is almost plum with a moderate head. Aroma of blueberry, lavender, vanilla. Flavors of plum, green grapes. Overall refreshing and lovely is you like slighty sour tasty brews.

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish purple, small fizzy pinkish head mostly dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is blueberry, oak, touch of funk. Flavor is light sweet initially, drying out quick. Just a bit tart and fruity with a backdrop of pleasant barnyard. Dry finish, lingering oaky fruity tart flavors. Light body, bubbly high carbonation - a bit soda-like, which detracts from an otherwise lovely beer.
