3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep ruby, with a small off-white head, which neither last very well nor leaves much lacing. Woody, musty, sour and blueberry notes make up the aroma. Fruity sourness up front leads into tart apple skin. A touch of blueberry comes in leading through into the mid-palate, which has some dusty, woody sour notes. Sour blueberry comes in at the finish. The blueberry is not a particularly strong feature of this beer. It’s there, but it certainly doesn’t dominate it. All in all this is quite a nice sour ale.

Nice glass of hot vinegar here. Acetic acid is burning my throat while i think about my rating. Aroma is very mild blueberries, PS why do blueberry sours turn into vinegar bombs if you dont drink them immediately? So incredibly tart that i dont really want more. A bit murky and earthy in there too but cant get past the acid.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
HAHAHAHA, this was possible the tartest beer ive ever had. The were some flavors in there that I guess were blueberries at some point. Tree branches, dirt and dead leaves, with unrelenting tartness. You literally stick your tongue out trying to swallow it. And when I use the word literally i dont mean like a tween using it every sentence. This shit is sour. It’s also rediculously overpriced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Served alongside HaandBryggeriet Blåbær.
The beer has a dark purple body with a hint of ruby. Small, pink head. The aroma brings a lot of blueberry, fleshy fruit, cherries, funk, brett, oak. Smells nice. Blueberry and cherry with funk. Sweet and sour, akin to a Flanders style ale. Moderate carbonation with a light puckering sensation in the back end. Tasty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Dyp mørkerødbrun. Pent tett, litt farget skum som varer en stund. God syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken har det samme preget av syrlig frukt. Svakt metallisk. Tørr. Det er nok blåbær her - men ikke lett å identifisere. Mye sedimenter igjen på flaska.
