larsga (6767) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2010
Smallish pinkish head. Red body. Intense barnyard and manure aroma with blueberry notes. Weeeeird. Dry-acidic metallic blueberry taste with barnyard notes. Thinnish body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry toffeeish blueberry and metal aftertaste. Really, wildly unusual. (0.33l bottle shared by hcalsos.)

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2010
Deep red, redcurrant, vinegar and stable aroma. Blueberries and sweet and sour flavour make a nice balance. A bit too mild, perhaps, but a welcome addition. Not a true lambic, but this will do.

Mad_Ferret (760) - SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Bottle @ home. Hazy deep ruby red with a spongy pink head which collapses leaving a thick lace. Vinegary aroma with notes of catpiss/urinoar, mold/damp, manure, black currant, lemon, gooseberries and PERHAPS some blueberries. Taste is sour with vinegar, lemon, black currant and some blueberries making an entry more at the end and in the aftertaste. The sourness is fairly moderate and fade a bit after a while, leaving more room for fruity berry flavours. Medium to lighter body with soft tickling bubbles and a dry texture. A pretty refreshing sour ale with a lot of acidity and funky notes in the aroma, but without any real depth underneath. It’s a pretty good beer though. Taste at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2010. Cloudy purple/pink beer with small fizzy head. Nice tart funky fruit lambic with a refreshing hint of blueberry. 11/22/2010

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2010
Sample @ SBWF ’10. Red to purple color with a small head. Nice sour aroma with the traditional stable and horse blanket mixed with only a touch of berries. The taste have less of the same, to bad the mouth don’t match the nose. It’s nice and dry but to weak in flavor.

Nisse666 (5143) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 Bottle thx to gnoff vintage 2005 cons 2011-01-08 Göteborg AR: great sourness, almond liquer (from Italy) AP: watery cherry water F: a bit watery, light blueberries/lingonberry flavor, dry, floury Rating: 3,5 Bottle from SB in Västerås, cons 2010-09-18, Göteborg AR: berry aroma, yeast like an belgian lambic but not as sour AP: a bit blue berry colured body, high fizzy purple head - quickly diminishing F: sour dry red fruity kind of lambic, a bit chemical it is not really that bluberry soup that you can have when cross country sking in wasaloppet :-). Waite a second, the blue berry flavors are getting more and more obvious... and there is a bit chilli pepper!

caesar (5823) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2010
Bottled. Clear redbrown color, short reddish head. Aroma of blueberry, oak wood, apple, varnish, dry wood, leather. Woody taste, dry, slightly sour. The dry wood is overwhelming and reminds me of a dry cider like westons. Nothing like the usual lambic.
