Dark amber colored pour. Small white head. Little lacing. Big fruity aroma with notes of the ocean and lemon. Big blueberry flavor up front followed by a salty sweetness. A nice tartness.

AirForceHops (3178) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 14, 2014
22 oz. bottle purchased at 7-11 in Kittery, ME about 3 months ago. Totally hazy gold with no head. Aroma is funky berries, yogurt, dusty wheat and weak lemon notes.

The flavor is nearly identical to the aroma. Yogurt, funky yeast, light tart berries ( but would never say blueberry) and some mild lactic acid notes in the backend. The body is light and tart. Overall, right in line with what it should be.

varanid99 (507) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
Up front confession - this is a style I am not a fan of. Then again, I haven’t had that many of them yet. Pinky, orangey weird pour with a thin pale pink head. Smells fruity, sour, and a bit of yeasty funk. Sour up front but not overly so, dry, blueberries, with a little sweetness despite the sour start. It actually was pretty good

mathieuc (1284) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Pours a nice hazy copper (gets more pink-ish as you progress into the bottle?) with a thin and fizzy white head that disappears rather quickly and do not leave much lacing. Nose is of freshly crushed blueberries and lemon. Taste is moderately tart and offers some nice berries and some cereals. Not as blueberry-forward as I was expecting but still nice. Body is light and mouthfeel a little watery, Carbonation is medium-high. Overall a nice and refreshing drink, falling short of my expectations but maybe I need to try the brunello version?

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle shared by James Daddy, pours hazy orange purple with small head. Notes are lactic penny, wood, rotten plum, sour cherry, and light vomit. Light to medium body. The draft version crushes this.

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 2, 2014
Faint pink color, small head. Acidic,loads of yeasty notes, slight sourness but more dry than sour. Really faint berries. Fun but over hyped.

Bomber. Aroma is barnyard funk and blueberries--pretty stinky! Pours cloudy salmon pink with a medium pinkish-white head that falls into a ring of big-bubbly foam. Taste is sweet and sour (7/10 on a sour scale), blueberries, wheaty. Carbonation is high, body is thin. After it warms up, the aroma isn’t so rank and it’s actually quite appealing.Tasty.

eaglefan538 (2892) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pour was amber with red-purple hues, hazy, thin initial head that thinned even further to the finest of blankets over the beer with good retention, splotchy lacing all the way down. Aroma of citrus, light fruits, blueberries. Flavor the same, sour, faint bread under it all, acidic. Mouthfeel was light. DFH Festina Peche is better. Not a bad BW, but this one ended a nice run on some excellent ET brews.
