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

This was a horrible beer. I really can not believe that the brewer had the nuts to sell this piece of shit. What are you thinking? Seriously? How can anyone one that has even a bit of integrity sell this beer?

Cloudy, deep blue/purple body. Looks like crushed blueberries. Appearance reminds me of Blabaer.

Funky, soured yeast and malts atop the blueberry fruit base. And damn it's sour. Extremely sour for a fresh fruited lambic. Who needs enamel anyway?

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. Thanks man!! Pour is birght magenta with little-to-no head. Raspberry jammy, blueberry, strawberry pit, somewhat funky, acidic, lactic, and vanilla in the aroma. Taste is bright berries, tangy fruit, oranges, blueberries, lactic, light oak, and tannins with a big sour finish. Light body with high carbonation. Really nice sour.

Experiment_Ale (656) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2014
At Stephens House with Stephen, Aaron, and Dave. Pours ruby red with very very small head. Aroma is fantastic raspberry sour tang, jammy, gummy fruits. Taste is fizzy tangy, orange juice, strawberry, some blueberry notes on the back end, finish is a little fast. A very nice beer, love it, not quite sour enough for me. And, blueberry doesn’t work that well in beers most of the time, it is a little watery.

750ml bottle. Thanks to Travlr! March 2014 DC Tasting. Poured a very purple, blue color, small off-white head. Aroma was heavy notes of blueberry. Lots of tart notes. Sour, lots of sour. Pucker. Acetic. I hadn’t had something this tart in a long time.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours garnet....thin pink/purple head. Tart, vinegary berry aroma. Puckeringly tart berry, woody/sour. Not really a blueberry specific flavour....more of a sour raspberry. Still, very well done.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle courtesy of shrubber85, thank you sir! Shared at iphonephan tasting. Royal purple color, murky probably because I didn’t give it long enough to settle after receiving it in the mail, small pink edge head. Aroma is blueberry, lemon, acetic acid. Taste is fruity, but a bit too acetic for my taste.

2014 Bottle. Tart fruity, funky lactic, and light oaky aroma. Deep plum with a small, quickly dissipating lavender head. Sour blueberry, funky lactic, and light oak/vanilla flavor. Light body, lively carbonation. Very nice!

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours hazy, bloody purple with a fine, off-white cap. Pleasant aroma of dried blueberries, lightly tangy in the nose. Light-medium sweet flavor with sturdy berry tang, some semi-ripe blueberries, light acetic bite, sweat. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good sour berry finish with nice and fleshy blueberries, mild brett funk, a bit of alcohol warmth. Good one.
