Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light purple/yellowish color ale with a nice large bubbly head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of tart and funky ester with light berry notes is quite pleasant and complex. Taste is also dominated by tart and funky notes with some light blueberry notes. Light oak notes are also noticeable with light and well balanced acidity. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Better than expected with quite a bit of complexity and good drinkability.

Bottle shared at RBWG. Excellent fruity sour. Great purple-orange hazy pour. Blueberries, citrus, yeast, tart on the nose. Funk and acetic, but still sweet and blueberry-y. Excellent.

jbruner (2914) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a hazy gold thin white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of nice brett funky notes over sour citrus. Taste follows, awesome funky lactic sweetness. Nothing too over the top, would love to try this one again.

wchesser (1427) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Lightly cloudy pink purple straw yellow. Nose of brett and lactic funk with light barrel and berries. Wheaty base, dry berry notes, pineapple brett. Tart, but not overly similar and no little to no VA. Smooth and very drinkable. Drinking quite well even pushing a couple years old now.

750ml bottle huge thanks to adnielsen and Lukaduke! Pours dark orange with slightest tint of reddish pink and medium head. Nose is tart acidic blueberry and red grape funk. Taste is crisp acidic blueberry spice and vinous oaky wet funk. Finish is lingering semi seeet funky blueberry jam and tart bretty fruit, oak. Still super tasty!

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to Aaron Nielsen for sharing!!! Pours cloudy peachy orange with an average white head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is fresh, tart blueberry with some citrus and a spicy yeast character. The flavor is the same with the sour note coming through as a somewhat underripe blueberry. The body is medium with average, smooth carbonation, and a long sour blueberry finish.

deekyn (1361) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Psyched to run through the whole set. Past it's prime though :( my fault. Still a fun night with the gang at Sante. A - pretty dark caramel with redish tinges with low head. S - Nose is a nice funky sour. Acetic up front, vinegar, cheese funk, and sour cream come on strong. Notes of straw, blueberries, and butter. M - medium body and sour! Almost ggressive. T - the taste follows the nose pretty well but is sweeter and the acetic tones are toned down. Some sugary cake batter and blueberries. O - really nice sour from stave. 4 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
