Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Heavy aromas of blueberry and raspberry, bready yeast, and a tart overture that makes me instantly think of a lambic. Gorgeous reddish-orange color with a slight purple tinge, and a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The flavor is most comparable to a lambic, but itís so well-balanced. Itís undeniably sweet, but in the best possible way. It pushes that edge to candy-sweet without being cloying. The carbonation is perfect and holds the sweetness in check. This is a really solid beer, and can be enjoyed by everyone from wine drinkers to beer connoisseurs to sour beer fans. Another great job by Dogfish Head.

Very fruity aroma full of berries. Taste is very similar with a very strong blueberry taste. Solid but nothing special.

Bottle from Coffee District in Delray Beach, FL. 750ml. Shared with friends in small snifters. Pours a deep amber with slight purple coloring (probably from the blueberry puree). Light thin head and very little lacing. Aroma was amazing with blackberries and blueberries. Slight tart smelling as well but not like a sour with brett. Taste was sweet berries..mostly blackberries and blueberries. (For the record blackberries are one of my favorite things in the world.) You get the berries mostly with a rather sweetness but it finishes ever so tart. Kind of wine-like and the 10% alcohol is very well masked. I LOVED IT!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Probably the sweetest beer Iíve ever had. Taste of berries is overwhelming and to me, the raspberry overpowered the blueberry (thatís not a criticism). The poster who said it tasted almost like wine is right on. Appearance is a deep copper with a thin head. What I love about the appearance is that my pour looked EXACTLY like the one the dude is holding on the label; thought that was pretty cool. Finish is a slight bitterness that transitions smoothly from and complements the tartness of the raspberry. This is a very drinkable beer thatís perfect for the summer. I just wish it was less than (a very well hidden) 10% abv so I could drink more of it!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium amber with medium head, medium almost purple lacing. Sweet aroma of berries (obviously) and grapes. Berry flavor is almost overwhelming, gives it a taste approaching wine rather than beer. So fruity its almost hard to get past it. For those who are fans of fruiting the beer it is a must have, for those who arenít I would pass on this one.
