500ml bottle. Brownish pour, struggles to form a head. Little lacing. The smell is real nice, wild yest and blueberries. Flavor is very bretty, lots of medicinal qualities. Berries are there, decently refreshing for the abv,

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 (4237) - 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 (2549) - 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 (4880) - 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 (4210) - 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.

MrChopin (3288) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
tepid hazy red chestnut. Hot nose, booze and acetic acid, heavy sawdust, lightly vinous. Little paper at front but berry pleasant, blueberry with light acid mid before the heavy fruit finish, thin and stinging with considerable dryness in fruit skins.

From a bottle shared at the DC Epic Sour Beer Tasting. Thanks Travlr! Bottom of the bottle sample poured a murky brown. Blueberry flavors very muted.

Thanks to Gene for this one! Yeah, this is good. Blueberry tang mixes with good barrel sweetness, mahogany color. Tangy, clean, I really like it.
