COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber's Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole blueberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Thanks to yjb for supplying me with this bottle. Pours deep red with some fizzy white bubbles. Smells of funk, blueberries, brett, oak, dust, some residual sugary hints. Tastes tarte with a load of complimentary blueberries, some sweet touches, an underlying intense dry sourness and hints of oak. This is an amazing beer and I canít wait to sample the strawberry and blackberry versions.

The beer pours perfectly beet red blue with a dark purple hue and huge creamy pinkish purple head. The aroma is smooth blueberry sour funk with some nice wild yeast going on. The flavor is awesome - sour and a bit of infection with perfectly blueberry funk and fresh blueberries settling so pleasantly on the palate. The mouthfeel isnít too bubbly, as I expected, soft and smooth, perfect for a sour.

shared by MrBendo at Mooseís YEHA. Deep hazy amber in color. Aroma is sour cherries, blueberry, light notes of funky cheese. Taste is tart fruit (cherry), light to moderately funky with some horseblanket, and some sweet blueberries and light notes of caramel malt in the background. Finishes moderately sour with lingering light blueberry.

One of my highlights at YEHA. Poured light purplish color with lively head. Aroma is of tart blueberry, funk. Taste has a wonderful tartness, brett funk, woody, with a very nice balance of blueberry. Crisp, dry and great. I want more.

Pours purple with a lingering sticky head. Nose is funk, leather, barnyard, blueberry. Taste us similar with a nice blueberry fruit balance with the sourness. No nice and drinkable. very very pleasant.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2007
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.

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.

Bottle cbus-x shared by ogglethorp, thanks again Brian! Pours sort of a dark salmon color with a white head. Aroma of light oak, funk, oak, and blueberry. Flavors of sour/sweet blueberry, oak, and pale malt. Medium body, sour/fruity/vinous with a dry sour finish.
