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

Poured red with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma of sour fruit. Lots of sour in this guy. No signs of blueberry flavors at all. Straight up sour.

More sour than I expected, but nothing wrong with that.... Tart in the finish. Light carbonation. With a purple color. I dig it.

At Avery Sour Fest. Dark cloudy purple. Nose is light blueberries and light acetic nose. Chewy, yeast driven, and I had a clean pour. Some blueberries in there, nice tartness, but couldn’t get past the yeast.

Pours a deep purple with no head. Aroma of oak, funk, slight berries, very vinous. Taste is sour, so sour, vinegar, funk, oak. I don’t really even get berries because this is so acidic, not like previous batches of upland lambics, not much fruit just sour.

Bottle. Vinegar, blueberry, and malt aroma. Bluish amber with minimal head. Sweet-tart blueberry, malt, and vinegar flavor. Blueberry flavor comes out nicely. Pleasant.

artmcd8 (1516) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle share at DLD. Pours a murky blue purple color without a head. Aroma is a sour blueberry. Taste is super sour with a bit of a blueberry flavor in the end. A bit too sour to be good.

A fair snort. Really fucking tart. To the point where I could merely sip it. Just intense and insane. Yeah, nice blueberry flavor, and a cool experience, but too much!

750 ml corked and caged bottle a month or two old. Pours a clear purple with some pinkish head around the perimeter of the glass. This is the softest of the lambics we opened as far as acidity goes. The aroma had more fruit character than sour character, so that was a nice change. The taste is soft fruit with a tingle of sourness kicking in mid to late swallow. Medium body with high carbonation. I wish the blueberry could have come through more.
