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.

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

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

yeah...not impressed for about a buck an ounce. hints at good things, but never quite delivers. finishes weak and watery though it opens up a little as it warms. light blueberry and funk. an ok beer, but not a great sour, especially at this price.

Sharp cheddar, persimmon, lemon nose. Cloudy amber, thick head. Very tart, lemon and yogurt, mild oak notes. Light body, soft carbonation. Pretty solid, but like the wine barrel version, no blueberries are detected.
