Poured an amberish purple color with aromas of sour blueberries, light vinegar, some lactic aromas with light musk. Flavors are tart blueberries, with some vinous qualities, nice sourness and very drinkable, a great beer from them.

Muddled purple pour from a bottle into a tulip glass. Aroma is blueberries, balsamic, and oak. Taste is HUGE acid bordering on vinegar which detracts from the nuanced oakiness that is barely evident. Tone down the tart and this is great.

bottle, Aroma is aweome, blueberry jam. Really gets all the blueberry flavors in there. The flavors is extreme tartness, the bluberries are almost lost as is everything else. This has very low drinkability and it was too easy to split this tiny bottle 5 ways. Just way to0 much for me
