Draft at Lupolo, 1/7/16. Pours clear orange without much head. Bit of fruit comes through on the aroma with wheat, yeast, and some funk. Clean and tart flavor, lighter fruitiness. Drinks solidly. Solid beer overall.

Tap. Rosy peachy orange hue with minimal white head. Fruity and not overly sour in the aroma, with some slight berry seed. Flavor has a bit more sour to it, but the blueberry doesn’t come through very clearly. Thinner body.

750 ml bottle shared with czar and company. Pours a slightly veiled peach-milky with a short lived white head. Aroma is blueberry, cheese and lactose. Flavor is blueberry, cheese and lactose, with a very sour, tart finish. Light body, watery mouthfeel, average carbonation.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, tart, light. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with purplish/pink hues and a one finger off-white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Interesting aroma with a nice blend of lactic funk, oak barrel and dark berries. There’s a ton of blueberry/dark fruit character but it still smells true to style. Not overly sweet smelling but vinous with blueberry, currant and other berries. This is countered by lactic funk, cheese, sourdough bread and even some subtle citrus. The fruit is nicely integrated without turning it into a gimmicky dessert beer. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than I expected/prefer for the style. Slightly tart and funky with a subtle blueberry/vinous dark fruit character lingering into a slightly acetic, dry finish. Blueberries are there but not as prominent as in the nose. Tastes more organic than cloyingly sweet or artificial. A nice touch of fresh berry along with lactic funk, bready yeast, citrus zest and acidity. A light and refreshing fruited Berliner that stays true to style without becoming overly sweet.

Some citrus and some raspberry. Light tangy finish. Not super interesting. Pours pink with ok head. Tap at Churchkey.

ClarkVV (4855) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Draught at Publick House, 10/23/15.
Bright copper-golden with a small whtie head that steadily fades to nothing. High clarity.
Blueberry skins in the nose but otherwise not too fruity. Not too much of anything, to be honest. Some light lactic acid, heavy paper and very light dirtiness.
Nose dosent prepare you, but the flavor is pure chemical character mixed with dry, heavily astringent blueberry skin with an afterthought of lactic acid. No malt/wheat softness, no body and just heavily, heavily filled with chemical flavor that is absolutely revolting. What in the hell happened here?? Wow, that was disgusting.

22 oz. bottle pours a light gold color with a very faint hue of blueberry and a thin white collar. Smells of tart faint blueberries strawberry and sweet tarts. Taste is funky blueberry tart acidic light horsehair and bandaid. Palate is thin fizzy dry little mouth watering. I dig it.
