COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The winner recipe from the Scandinavian home brewers competition 2006. It was brewed by Eric Olofsson on Ølfabrikken in July 2006. It is based on a mix of Maris Otter, Pilsner and wheat malt, fermented with a mix of ale yeast, pediococcos, brettanomyces and lactobacillus and conditioned on whole organic blueberries. Pictures from the brewing session at Ølfabrikken can be found at: http://www.olfabrikken.dk/images/slideshows/petitblau. Of course unfiltered, unpasteurized and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.

Overall a pretty interesting Sour, but I have had better.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Enjoyit. Consumed at 4,5 years of age. Thanks. Pours amber with a small head. Aroma has lots of tart horseblanket, leather, blue berries, brett notes, really nice berry sweetness. Taste is not as tart as the aroma suggests, nice brett profile, balanced tartness, sour apples, lots of horseblanket, and the blue berries provide a really nice sweetness to balance things out. Very nice and balanced.
