COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 70% Pilsner malt, 30% Michigan raw organic Wheat and bittered with German Hallertau. German hefeweizen yeast was first used to ferment the wort followed by secondary maturation on 3 strains of Brettanomyces infused with montmorency cherries. The blueberry version was carried out the same but infused with Michigan blueberries.

draft at Rattle n hum in the Beers gone wild aftermath. lots of fruit in the nose, sharp tartness, Body is a bit flat, well balanced sweetness, hint of grain... perhaps a bit overrated, or maybe this beer is just past it’s prime.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2011 Draft at Rattle n Hum during the Sours Gone Wild Event with Pat, Dallas, Bobby and Andrew. Pours a deep reddish mahogany body with absolutely no head - appears to be flat. Aroma comes out with a little warmth - funky yeast and blueberry pie. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of blueberry, sweet fruit.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Draft. Labeled as Blueberry Lambic. Big notes of blueberry and sour fruits. Dark amber hue with an off-white head. Some lacing. Flavor is very sweet. Palate is oily soft with a mild sour backend. Overall a very good and drinkable brew. I would love to see more of that sour come forward.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Tap at Brett fest. tea chestnut color, thin white head that fizzles out quick. A bit boozy on mid palate, lots of blueberry skin, grape, very dry, lightly sweet. A bit green, sawdust, lots of sweetness in the finish. Thin, sweet, not a ton of blueberry but very skin-like. sa

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Poured a muddy ruby with a thin, diminishing white head. Blueberry cobbler nose. Taste is full of fresh blueberry pie- totally different from Blabaer where the blueberries manifest themselves as a raspberry/cherry blend accentuating geuze and kriek character. Here blueberry dessert is the focal point and comes off a little heavy, sweet, and actually very filling. It is certainly blueberry cobbler all the way with a tart body. But it lacks subtlety.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Draft. Pours some amberish shade... I’d bad with colors and don’t know what to call it, with a thin head. Sweet fruity blueberry jammy aroma with a funky wisp. The flavor has loads of fresh blueberry flavor with a light tartness. Really good, very drinkable. Ideally I’d have wanted a little bit more tartness and slightly less sweetness though. Still really damn good.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 16, 2010
Brownish plum color small white head fades fast. Aroma is awesome. Lots of fresh blueberries, some cakey sweetness and nice semi dry sourness. As it was the real more lambic like aromas come through. Flavor is great. Perfect blueberry flavor and the right amount of sourness. A little prickly on the tongue too. Delicious.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2010
On tap at Hop Devil. Deep maroon pour with a fizzy eggshell head. Great aroma of blueberry, blueberry, blueberry: blueberry pancakes, blueberry syrup, freshly picked blueberry. I mean damn, they really nailed it. Flavor is blueberry pancakes, lemon, and balsamic vinegar. Light, spritzy mouthfeel with a tart and sweet blueberry finish. Enjoyable and memorable.

On tap at Hop Devil Grill. Awesome beer. The aroma is sweet blueberries, sour vinegar, barnyard. Actually a little more sweet than sour. The appearance is a beautiful dark red, opaque, off-white head. The flavor is sweet, tart, blueberry. The finish is a nice mix of sour, tart, sweet. Medium/thick in body. Awesome beer. Great balance of sweet and sour.

Draft @ 4th ave. Purple, red pour no head to speak of, but has appropriate carbonation. Blueberries, everywhere, aroma , and flavor. Sweet and sour notes, this is a great fruit beer. 9 Percent? where?
