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.

Tap at CBC15! Pours a brownish red with an off white head. Aroma is quite flemish fruity with cherries, cranberries, blueberries and some tart balsamico. Taste is VERY sour, fruity citric and dry. Still good balance. Very tasty!

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

CBC Green Session. Keg. Hazy red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and crispy. Very sharp lemon sourness dominates a little Flemish red cherry and balsamic. Dry finish. Way too acid for me.
