Sample at The Source. The beer is a dark purplish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to a wispy film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of blueberry, oak, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of tart blueberry, funky yeast, oaky whiskey and malt. The finish is moderately tart with a berry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting at Corbets house on December 21. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a darker purple/red color with a thin light tan head that vanishes quickly. The aroma is really full of whiskey again, but at least its less so than the Origins Grand Cru. There is a nice fruit balance to this one as the blueberries offer a lovely tartness of ths skin throughout this beer. The flavor is just as good. Its just a little messy and boozy. The alcohol dominates. The light barrel and fruitiness try to come through, but theyre outmatched. The mouth feel is a little thicker than you would expect with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly boozy, lightly fruity finish.

Amazing blueberry intensity and a lot of funk in this one! Great sourness, very moderate and tasty with a strong blueberry taste.
