Thanks Jason, pours a deep violet color with a light pink head. The smell is tart fruit, dark berries, lactic acid. The taste is blueberry, tart lactic notes ending dry and crisp with mild wood. Light in body with active carbonation.

Many thanks to Rian! Nice fruity sourness in the beginning. The beer starts sour-fruity. Not too complex. Nice fresh-sourish with fruity hints. Not too intense, abut boring with mouldy hints. Sourish and easy to drink aftertaste with blueberry hints. Ok but not overwhelming.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From old tasting notes. 750 ml bottle. This one pours a beautiful deep red color with a purple hue and topped by a small, thin film of off white foam at the head that quickly fades into the body below. A sticky wash is left behind after each sip. The aroma is full of soft lactic funk showing notes of sweet and tart blueberries along with hints of oak laden vanilla. The flavor shows more tart blueberry, subtle fruit sweetness, earthy funk, and lactic and citrus acidity. There is a nice tartness throughout the brew. Medium bodied and dry in nature to go with the lively carbonation that leads a tart, refreshing finish. This is a fine example of a sour fruit beer. Good stuff.

June 19, 2015 - bottle shared by Brian. It is dark, but looked like a pinkish pour. Nicely balanced with the fruit, sour and wood.

Bottle thanks to pailhead for sharing. Dark purple pour with no head. Aroma is blueberries with some sour lemon and musty oak. Tastes extremely sour but so good. Grape skins, red wine, blueberry, lemon, and oak. Moderately acidic. Ultra dry finish works very well here. Good stuff.
