3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[ Bottle ][ ½ of 65cl ][ Tasting ][ $12 ][ Snifter ][ 9.26.14 ]
Hazy red-plum, thin white head lasts, ring and oily cap. Dusty hay manure nose, light blueberry skin, considerable acid. Heavy manure-lactic acid contrast front palate, manure winning in the dusty mid, lightly grainy, syrupy juice emerging behind heavy sweetness through the lightly dusty lactic end, skins all over in an expressively puckering finish. Acids way high, manure note too funky, and there’s some synthetic fruit in the flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a dark copper with a ruby hue and a lot of off white head. Nose is fleshy and meaty blueberry followed by a dirty malt, a lot of sugars, and a hint of lime. Taste is hot, fake meaty blueberry, dirty malts and grain, a hint of acetic acid, moderate acidity, and sugary finish. Body is messy, medium body, prickly finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Faint pink color, small head. Acidic,loads of yeasty notes, slight sourness but more dry than sour. Really faint berries. Fun but over hyped.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
