TheJvd (812) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Small sample from tap at Beertemple during Carinvale Brettanomyces 2014. Pours murky pink/red with no head. Looks more like a smoothy than a beer. Aroma has blueberries, rhubarb and red fruits. Taste also has blueberries, red fruits, some tartness and lactic acid. Medium body and carbo. Nice stuff.

laiti (5563) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Draught @ Beer Temple. Aroma feels like watermelon juice. Flavour is rather tart and aggressive with redcurrants and some grapefruit. Strong rhubarb tones at the end of the glass. Short flavour, finishes watery. I like the tartness here, but unfortunately that is all this beer has to give.

This is the Weltmerz, but with blueberries. Proves to be a great combination. The strong sourness combine greatly with the soft fruitiness of the berries. Great beer.

Benzai (7302) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Sampled from tap @ Beer Temple. Well, starting with the appearance, it looks like tomato juice. Aroma suggests the beer is fruity and perhaps even a bit sweet. The taste is more sour -as expected- and the texture does indeed remind me a bit of tomato juice. Nah, not really my thing I guess.
