4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a hazy, reddish golden color, with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, light berries, leather, funk, and hay. Taste of dry berry skins, some sweetness, tart, funk, and a lengthly, sour finish. Good, but just short of Cantillonís.

Total funk. You donít notice the blue so much but this stuff is dry, slightly sweet and oh, so delicious. Must get more.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2009 Batch 1. C-bus 10 and Ogglethorp strikes again! Sour blueberries and a citrus scent in the aroma. Reddish pour with hues of purple mixed in. Perfect carbonation in the palate of this brew--which I love. Tart fruit flavor up front, oak and citrus throughout. Nice bite--but not overly sour. I would put this right on par with Cantillonís blueberry.

C-Bus 10: Bottle shared by ogglethorp: Pours a purplish color with a purplish head. Aroma, blueberries, and some tartness, a bit of funk as well. Flavor, tart and dry, some nice sourness, and a bit of funk, nice blueberry flavor throughout. Another nice one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked and capped. Hey, no cork problems this time! And no gushing, either. A smooth opening experience, all the way through, quite in contrast to the Razz. Pours that type of murky red-brown that is common to blueberry juice and little else, darkly colored to the eye but more of a cloudy ruby when held under light. Short beige head has pinkish highlights. Very sour, very tart aroma, slightly funky with little vinegar but a distinct salivary appeal. I suppose you could call it a blueberry aroma, but for me itís closer to "generic lambic." As for taste, forcefully and abusively sour, less so than with the razz, but nonetheless very upfront. Fizzy feel but relative smooth, aftertaste is somewhat bland. Well-made, indeed, and balanced, but not as good as the other, and more of a compliment to food than a stand-alone.

750 ML Bottle. Pours a opaque blue with a very fizzy head. The aroma is tart blueberries, a bit of funk, oak. The flavor is excellent. As the previous rater noted, the fruit does not dominate the flavor. A bit of funkiness, sour, and then the blueberries. Very well put together. Excellent mouthfeel.

From 750ml bottle ($15) still available at the brewery, there was some at Kahnís in Indy but they are out of the Blueberry and Blackberry:
Well it looks bleuberryish with hues of blue, purple and red with a fading fizzy head and no lace. The nose detected sour blueberry, light funk and cheese, floral vapours, oak and earthy esters.
A nice sharp acidity greets ya and stays throughout the tasting. The fruit is much more a background player and for that I am happy for this is no cloy fake syrupy fruit beer! My friend who shared this with me said "WOW, this is tart" and he likes a good micro. There are hints of brett, wood, flowers and some wild grains (almost like some rye). Still not has complex as some for Belgium but far better than others that claim to be lambics.
The mouth feel has a prickly carbonation and a mostly dry finish. A very nice brew that is awful close to style and methinks would indeed be well received by the sour crowd.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark purple/red witha fine, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is dry, with a woody, tart aroma. Mouthfeel is bubbly with a moderate weight. Flavor is very tart with a blueberry hint floating about it. I think itís very spot-on for a lambic. Maybe not crazy sour, but definitely true to form.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very limited release, I believe approximately 1,500 bottles, I also seem to remember reading they arenít distributing it anywhere outside Indiana, Enjoyed a bottle with dinner and some friends at Upland. Poured a grape juice, red wine purple-ish color, with small pink/reddish head. Aroma is blueberry, other fruits, wood, earth, and acidity. Taste is tart blueberry, a little sour, and a little sweet. Not nearly as cloying as something like "Lindemanís" - and more authentic-tasting. However, the sourness is not anywhere near a gueze, my buddy said "it tastes like drinking a blueberry Warhead (sour candy)" and I agree. A nice Lambic for a little Hoosier micro on the other side of the world. P.S. - The Lambic does not pair well with "The Inferno" burger, as it intensifies the "burning" sensation, as Miko soon found out. I did like it with the Bison burger, on the other hand.
