3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 10/03/2013. Pours deep purplish red, thin white fizzy head dies to stillness within a minute or so. Aroma is fruity, blueberry with berry skin, sweet tartness cutting through round lactic bouquet laced with vanilla, wood and oak in the end. Taste almost overwhelms initially with puckering sourness, takes some time to get accustomed to, revealing sweet tart berries, mildly acetic biting finish, dry finish with faint oak. Medium body. Far from my favorite Bruery sour but decent enough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlogged rating, summer of 2013: Slightly hazy deep golden hue with purplish highlights with fizzy head. Tart berries (not really blueberry but a combination to various berries), touch of lemon tart, a bit of tannic barrel and earthy minerals leading to a quick dash of spices. Nice and refreshing but I wanted a true Blueberry flavor, not a mish mash.

Bottle shared at Sante. Pours reddish purple with a pink head. Aroma is pretty nice, with fresh vivid blueberries, lemon and raspberry. Flavor is harsher, vinegar and green apple but still decently fruity and lactic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 8/31/13 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours deep garnet red with an average pink head that leaves thin, spotty lace. The nose is sour with blueberry skin, plenty of earthy funk, and some very light nutty and oaky vanilla oak and malt. The flavor is dominated by intense sourness with the blueberry skin, funk, malt, and oak all in the background but adding complexity. The body is fairly light with plenty of blueberry skin and oak tannin, and a long intensely sour fruity finish.

Shared 2013 bottle. Pours clear pinkish amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is bready malts, fresh blueberries, good floral character, and good funk. Flavor is outstanding with great sour notes, fresh blueberries, and a solid tart palate. Light body and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Hazy to cloudy off pink color. Aroma has berries, citrus. Taste is very tart, balsamic berries and fruit. Too acidic for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a tulip. Mostly opaque mauve. A thin bit of silky, pinkish fizz. Sweet blueberry in the aroma. Barnyard funk, touch of vinegar, green apple. Smooth, balanced aroma. Not much blueberry in the flavor. Mostly pure sourness. Vinegar. Lemon, green apple. Tart. Bracingly sour. Touch of funk. Medium light body, big bubbled carbonation. Fizzes up in the mouth. Tartness is huge, lingers. Good flavor, great sourness. Just need more showing from the blueberries so prevalent in the aroma and color.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Bottle shared by dbarnold, 9/25/14
Aroma: The aroma is fairly tart, the blueberries are present, but not overpowering
Appearance: Pours a hazy purple-reddish color with a beige head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is tart and a little sweet with a nice malty component and some oak as well
Palate: The body is medium, with a pretty good mouthfeel, and a clean, tart finish
Thanks Dave! I enjoyed this one. The blueberry component works nicely without killing the beer with sweetness. Well done.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Another nice sour from the Bruery. Lots like Sans Paigie in look, feel, and maybe base...aggressive lemony sourness, lactic feel. The blueberries are maybe a touch better in this particular format than the cherries, but pretty comparable. Juuuust enough sweet to cut through the sour and tart. Lasting impression. I hope I get this again."
