Draught. Pours hazy red with a small white head. Aroma and taste are both predominantly blueberry and wheat. Some yeast to the taste. A hint of vinegar, too. Tart and dry. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Clean.

beer-yum (1780) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 14, 2017
Restrained aroma in a rose coloured pour. Laid back tart taste has a subtlety often lacking in many other takes on the style - and is better for it.

3.2
IndianaRed (4784) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2017
On tap cloudy light pink purple with a small off white head. Some light berry aromas and a mild tartness. Nice flavors. It quite tame. More blueberry flavor comes through at the end.

jgb9348 (6325) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Nice, slightly hazy pink and violet coloured body with a two to three centimetre tall off-white head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of tart blueberries, brett, sour grapes, yeast and a dose of sugars. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive sour blueberry and cherry flavours up front with a lot of raspberries noticeable along with some yeast, brett and sour grape flavours and even a hint of lemons. Aftertaste shows a very complex and super nuanced beer with the blueberries coming out along with some sour grapes, lemons, yeast, coriander seed, flowers and even a melon or two near the end. Overall, an incredibly complex and multi-layered beer from the aroma to the end, with a nice profile along with a good dose of sweetness and sour flavours throughout, ending with a great blueberry flavour and the brett flavours that make Crooked Stave beers what they are. I sampled this 37,5 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 26-November-2016 for US$8,36 sampled at home in Washington on the Fourth of July, 2017 as the final beer in my red/white/blue sampling for the day, and this, the best, was my ’Blue’ beer.
