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.

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.

Calisky (1135) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle from la Capsule in Nancy. Couleur cerise sombre, légère mousse rose avec dépots. Super nez aigre, acidulé fruits rouges, cerises, vieux fut de vin, bouchon de vin avec tanins. Gout magnifique et intense, aigre, vinaigre fruits rouges, notes tanins de vins acidulés sucrés, boisée vineux. Vraiment un top de sour ale. Nfin de bouche bien longue aigre, cerises, boisée. Superbe!

jaghana (4154) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle 50cl kindly shared by Calisky. A dark amber beer with low head. Nose is very nice on sour cherries and lot of yeast notes as for American sour ales. Aroma is on dry and sour notes, cherries and red fruit skin notes, clean, acid, oak notes, light vinegar, very good stuff. Finish on wet oak and cherries.

Bottle. Hazy redtinted amber body with a small offwhite head. Aroma of tart blueberry, raspberry, light malt hint. Sweet and sour berry taste, with lasting acidic fruits, dry sour finish, lovely fruit and berry aftertaste. Very nice!

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Tart berry and balsamic. Cloudy brown with a white head. Tart berry and balsamic with a bit of prickle in the throat. I can’t pick out blueberries specifically, but a nice tart fruit beer.

Huhzubendah (2660) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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.

nimbleprop (5210) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2014
50cl bottle pours a murky amber with some soapy, off white head. Nose has malt, vinegar, cherry, vitamin C tablets. No real berry to speak of. Flavor is hot, tart, cherry, nail polish, some agave, tons of vitamin C. Hot finish.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
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.
