The rare Bruery sour that meets or exceeds expectations! Blueberry flavor very prevalent, tartness restrained, color beautiful. An impressive beer.

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."

2013 bottle. Lactic acid is the dominant aroma and it’s joined by tart blueberries and balsamic vinegar. Pours a gorgeously clear medium purple. Nice acidic taste of lactic, dry oak and very tart blueberry with a bone-dry finish. Light body, prickly texture. A darn good fruit sour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750mL bottle.
Aroma is fairly fruity with a nice blueberry character. Light acidity with a nice, light oak character. Some raspberry and cassis notes as well with a hint of tropical fruit.
Pours a somewhat clear, reddish copper color with a small, moderately thick, slight tan head that recedes quickly to the edges.
Flavor is moderately acidic with a nice lactic character and a hint of acetic acid. Medium light notes of blueberry with some other berry notes. Light oak character and a hint of tannins. Faint tropical fruit and faint bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a really nice sour beer with a good berry character. Blueberry notes are nice, but not super jammy and overpowering. Decent, complimentary oak notes.

750 ml bottle to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; a cloudy blueberry flesh with very light pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; blueberries and a bit of funk. Tastes like it smells with a nice, tart mouthfeel.What seems to be some lacto. Good stuff.

Bottle thanks to John. Hockey Pool box. Pours hazy reddish purpose with pink white head. Nose/taste of blueberry, oak, lacto and vinegar tartness and puckering acid. A bit too sour for my preferences. Lighter medium body.
