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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Currant and oak aroma, hints of marshmallow peeps, but tart overall. Pinkish copper, thick peach colored head with no retention. Very very tart, currant, apple core and oak. Not much of a blueberry presence except for in the finish, but I doubt I would have been able to identify it as such if I wasn’t expecting it to be there. Velvety, tannic, very tart, fizzy, a bit like putting a 9v battery to your whole mouth. A delicious sour that’s a real challenge for the palate.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nicely balanced, but one-dimensional. Fermented berries and citric tartness dominate both the palate and the nose. If you like that, you’ll like it.

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.
