3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours bit hazy red with a medium pink head. The aroma is quite fruity with strong notes of blueberry and a distinct hint of acid. The flavour is quite tart with notes of citrus, blueberry, grape fruit and some leather. Quite decent attempt.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from bunker beer
clear red, pink head.
dry soirish beer aroma, also red fruity notes. The soursih beer aroma is pretty dry, rather than sour. Also a good dose of sweet leather, or skin. Aroma is not especially pleasant but very interesting.
flavor is quite sour and acid, quite dry, resembling perhaps pink champaigne. Not much fruit here, but quite a lot of lambic. Everything matches well and the flavor is way better than the aroma. The not so strong flavor from fruits is good i think, it seems like the fruits there is, is kinda’ not fresh. Very nice fruit lambic anyways. the flavor profile is "clean" and i can’t find any of the weird flavors that some non-belgian sour beers have. Experiemnt with the blueberry part - the lambic part is spot on ;-).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small bottle shared by hcalcos. Low grey-shaded blond head. Body has a nice red color with a ruby hue. Aroma of sour red berries and barnyard. Dry, sappy berry flavor. Some sourness , some funk. Light-bodied. Feels kind of diluted in the mouth. Sharp, dry metallic ending. Strange brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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!
