On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a golden orange color with a thick off white head. The aroma is thick with blueberries and a little sour wine. The flavor is sweet berries with a thick body, alcohol and a tiny bit of wine barrel with minor tart notes in the finish. Pretty tasty.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Compared to other beers where the first smell, taste, and overall first experience with the beer shines through, this beer took a number of sniffs and tastes before I really understood what was going on here. The aroma is the most disappointing aspect of this hybrid beer. It is quite lacking. The flavor is another story. After a couple of sips, allowing your mouth to really adjust to what it is experiencing, it comes through; blackberry, sweet blackcurrant, just overall berry explosion. It advertises as blueberry, but really its just a sweet berry flavor. I will agree that it is quite one dimensional and sweet, but for people who like this, cheers! Not my thing.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Noble Fir. Pours bright purple/reddish amber with thick lacey white head. Aroma is oaky malt, Belgian yeast, and a bit of berries. Taste is sweet thick pale malt, dry yeasty finish, and tons of tart and fruity blueberries and raspberries throughout. Big malt body, big sweet fruit, big abv to match. Well balanced. Perhaps a bit extreme but what else would you expect? I always look forward to this bottle coming out and the draft is perhaps even better.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Distillery, Savannah. It pours clear red with a medium pink-white head. The nose is rather sweet....fruit syrup, tang and blackcurrant. The taste is also sweet... blackcurrant cordial, blueberry, cherry tunes, faint tang and candy with a dryish finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Hides alcohol well. A bit one-dimensional and sweet for my taste.

Pours a purplish pink with slight head. Hits you like a Tripel, crisp, but has a refreshing sweetness and tartness from the fruit. Very refreshing on a hot day and an interesting take on a Tripel.
