Gription79 (2429) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 23, 2015
Poured from a 375ml bottle. Pours a beautiful purplish red. This is very acidic, the sourness overwhelms everything else in this beer. THe blueberries are minimal in both the aroma and flavor, the malts are non existent, there is a light tart cherry note. This is one dimensional.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, dark reddish purple pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of funky blueberry, tart berry, very sour lemon, some slight caramel, biscuit into a bit of funky, earthy notes. Taste was a mix of big tart lemon, slight acetic acid/burning into a bitof blueberry, raspberry notes with a touch of oak, funk, finishing very tart, dry. A bit one dimensional, and overly acidic, but overall decently made.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and burnt-orange with purple highlights and no head. The aroma is a nice balance of vanilla, berries and woody funk. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is delightfully sour and super fruity. Blueberries? The bottle says so. Most importantly, this is just fruity, sour and delicious. Thanks to landhoney for sharing this world class bottle of beer!

rxeight (1756) - Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2014
375ml bottle. Medium Sour and tartness. Red wine. Sour Blueberries. Clean finish. Noticeably different base from the other side project sours and it works really well with the berries.

vyvvy (4540) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle at The Side Project Cellar - Pours reddish purple with a small off-white head. The aroma has tart blueberry, oak, vanilla, vinegar and fleshy fruit. It has a medium crisp body with light sharp carbonation. The taste has citrus, blueberries, bugs, oak and a bit of vanilla that keeps it from being too sour. The finish has lemon, sharp herbal notes and clean blueberries. Really nice.
