COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A custom blend never to be replicated, Blue Sunday celebrated our “11 Years in Beer” in grand fashion. It has a surprisingly crisp body with tart, cherry-like notes and a malty sweetness in its finish.

This is the 2008 release available in 750 ml bottles at the brewpub.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours a muddy brown with a decent head and lacing. Too over-carbonated for my tastes and takes away from the overall experience and flavour. Decent use of cherries, but a bit too much specialty malt is involved. Odd funk character with some acidity and green apple. Very ordinary and a bit “off”.

thedm (4925) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 29, 2012
This bottled brew from the first beer at rbsg poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was citrus malty and sour. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of sour and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

brokensail (10642) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
A: Good thing I wasn’t pointing the bottle at anyone as the cork exploded out of the bottle as soon as I took the cage off. Pours a dark amber color with a couple finger’s of khaki head. S: An interesting aroma to this beer. Quite a strong vinegar presence along with a lot of oak which gives the beer a strong vanilla note. Some chocolate, strangely, and a bit of dark fruits. Some alcohol notes as well. T: Dark fruits such as cherries and currants are prominent on the flavor and are really accentuated by the balsamic and red wine vinegar notes. A bit of a grape juice flavor and plenty of oak and vanilla. There is a minerally character to the beer, too. M: Medium in body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. D: This beer was really strange/interesting. I liked it for the most part, but it did have some slight harshness at points, particularly the alcohol on the nose.

Hair6a11 (1320) - Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle; Steven’s 1st Annual Sour Tasting - Pour is clear copper with amber highlights - Nice off white head on this brew. Light funk, caramel malts, and cherry pits on the nose. Tart cherries, a general funk, sweet breads, vanilla; this was another sour that didn’t stack up to the rest, but was good on its own.

deyholla (6505) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Sampled this over the RBSG weekend, I believe Jeff cracked this. Poured a hazy dark brown with a huge light brown head that dissipated slowly. Aroma was a dark with grains and some dark tart fruits. Flavor began with a bit of sweet dark grains but tart fruits quickly took over leading to quite a tart finish.
