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?

Salmoniform (570) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy purple hue with pink hue that dissipates. Aroma is lactic, blueberry, straw, light leather. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a tart following and a puckering finish. Overs all this is a nice brew.

Poured a dark deep blue, almost purple color with aromas of tart blueberries, funk, wet wood, and sourness. Flavors were sour blueberries, funk, light vineagar, overly sour, but was decent enough to stomach.

5000 (6263) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle:   Deep violet, little head and little lacing.   To be expected I guess.   Tart unripened blueberry nose and oak.   Fairly sour on the tongue.   Blueberry is very faint.   Fairly acidic, moderate vinegar.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Dry finish, light greenish blueberries, and oak.   Simple, yet decent.   Thanks Kevin!

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

wchesser (1153) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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.

jcartamdg (1952) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2014
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.
