gunnar (5977) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2014
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.

mathieuc (1731) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
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.

tmrmwel (1138) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle, batch 569. Pours hazy dark red, with a short lived airy head. Aroma is tart fruity and acidic with lots of blueberries, as well as rhubarb, orange, vinegar, farmyard and oak barrels. Medium body with quite fizzy carbonation. Flavour is sour with vinegar and unripe fruit, as well as blueberries, forest berries and wooden barrels.

gyllenbock (5306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle bought in Trondheim in June 2014. Hazy dark red with a small head. Dry with some light berries,"metal", some bread and light yeast. Drinkable but a bit anonymous.

@ Eddan 14-8-30: lite metallisk doft. Smaken är tyvärr ganska blek och det är svårt att hitta nån smak alls. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

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.

visionthing (3236) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2014
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Poura hazy deep reddish with a slightly pinkish head. Nice blueberry aroma with yeasty notes and hints of spices. Moderate sweet with some sour notes, nice berry aroma and yeast influences. Refreshing and nice!

Vighals (1652) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
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

Huhzubendah (2797) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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.

Ruby red with a pink head - Good berry arooma with some hints of funk - Good body with berries and some woody / leathery notes from the berries - Good finish with nice berries - This was nice and refreshing
