3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting bluefish purplish pink. Nose was slight tart, oak, wine, some acidity. Taste was more oak, grain, lemon. Wished for not tart and blueberry. It was there, just not as much. Mouthfeel was light and god carbonation. Interesting stuff that I think could have been pulled together a little bit more.

Bottle shared by Hopscotch. Clear plum pour with white head. Vinous aromas. Mild vinous, muted blueberry, and wood notes with just a hint of caramel malt. Decent body and mouthfeel.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a whitehead. Aroma was of light funk, cracked wheat, lemon peel and blueberries. Mild blueberries in the flavor, slightly vineous and crush grains on the finish. Ok.

$11.99 Bomber Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO.
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a huge, tiny-bubbled head. Smells of sour berry and wheat. Flavor is a horribly bitter under-ripened blueberry mess with a vinegar taste. Yuck. Not for me. I estimate I poured about $7.00 down the drain with this one.

Overall, the red wine barrel and blueberries really popped after letting it warm up for 45 minutes...do not drink cooler temp.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Medium gold, little head. Definite sour aroma, but little hint at any blueberry as labeled. This drinks with an up-front sour edge, puckeringly sour even. I still don’t get any blueberry. Cleanly made and nicely in the Berliner lane, although based on the label, I’m not sure that’s what I expected. Good beer, though. (#5311, 11/4/2013)

This one is dissapointing. Really needs a much heavyer tartness and fruit flavor. Its very light and vinous. Tastes like a spritzed wine.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
10/13/13. Bottle shared by Forrest - thanks, dude! Pinkish golden purple bluey pour with a fluffy off-white, pinkish head. Tart aroma, grainy, mild blueberry if you search, I suppose, a hint of winey sweetness. Tart flavor, lightly tart, grainy, doughy, mild wine adds a sweetness and complexity. Tasty. I have never had the plain version.

Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy pink grapefruit juice color with a medium white head. Aroma of metal, blueberry, grapefruit, funk and creamy wheat. Malty flavor with blueberry character before a tart, metallic finish.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Aug. 2013, draft at City Beer, SF) Appears hazy read with a hint of purple. Aroma is slightly tart, blueberries and pomegranate. Taste is very disappointing; tastes like a carbonated red lemonade, watery, mildly sour and sweet. Ok, but very forgettable.
