Bottle at Cardinal. Batch # 569. Pours clear redish with a small weak pinkish head. Aroma of tart acidic berries. Dry clean taste of berries,more crow berries than blueberries, spritzy lively mouthfeel, like a champagne, mineralic dry finish, me like a lot.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to myknewcraft, thanks Joey! Pours a somewhat clear red with a medium white head that fades quickly into nothingness and leaves zero lacing. Nose is of soft vinegar and maybe some fruits. You’d think you are smelling a tame sour red, really. Wood? Anyway, OK. Taste is of blueberries, not too sweet and not acid either, gives some unfortunate metallic notes. Body is light and carbonation a bit high and prickly. Overall it was OK but definitely not fruit-forward and less than interesting.

@ Eddan 14-8-30: lite metallisk doft. Smaken är tyvärr ganska blek och det är svårt att hitta nån smak alls.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark purple body with a small white head. Aroma of blueberries, yeast, quite malty. Taste is slightly sour, blueberry, wheat, with a balancing sweetness and a straight forward berry finish making it an easy beer to drink and enjoy, although compared to Haands other berry beers which I’m a fan of this comes a bit short.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Mørk rød uklar med lavt rosa skum som ligger. Lukter bær og skog, men ikke utpreget blåbærlukt på denne. Svært syrlig, stram mot rødvinseddik. Kort

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Served alongside Blåbic.
The beer is lavender hued with a small pink head. Aromas of blueberry, juice, fruit sugars, herbal notes. Funk character is minimal. Perhaps this would increase with age, but then, I suppose the blueberry character would diminish. Anyhow, this doesn’t drink like a lambic to me. Fruity with a mild pucker in the finish. I much preferred the Blåbic to this. While this was decent, it’s not even in the same hemisphere as Cantillon Blåbær.
