Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a hazy pink with small white head that lasts. The aroma is pure sugar, vanilla, berry, wheat. Thin body, wheat, berry, light tartness, dough finish, good. willisread (4028) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Bomber shared. Thanks Matt! Pours a cloudy purplish color with a finger of foam that lingers. Blueberry forward nose. Good fruit character, light blueberry skin. Blueberry yogurt, like a creamsicle on the palate. Very creamy body with tons of blueberry flesh shining. Restrained tartness, with a great balance. Great stuff. drsandman (1686) - New York, USA - NOV 24, 2017

Tasting at Matt'sfiery1 (1844) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2017
Cloudy red color. Light berry aroma with lemony acidity, fresh feeling. Dry mouthfeel, boldly carbonated, mild berry flavor, mild acidity, mild yeast in the final.
650ml bottle @ Matt's. Pours a cloudy purple pink colour with nearly no head. Nose is tart blueberries. Flavour is upfront quite tart blueberry with a citrus twist and a light about of lacto. It's light bodied with lots of mouth carbonation and overall it has a very low sweetness. It comes off a bit harsh as such.

Bottle - Berry and an herbal almost minty notes. Deep reddish orange with a small white head. Sour, citrus acidity, orange and that herbal note with a soft finish. mcberko (20473) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2017
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy deep pink with a tiny white head. Aroma brings out lots of lacto and tart blueberries. Flavour is very tart, with puckeringly dry, tart blueberry, light lacto and a touch of citrus. Pleasantly tart and well-balanced. Nicely done.

Hazy, Light purple. Not much head. Tart and fruity, with a lot of blueberries. Clean, balanced tartness, probably a bit of yeastiness. I like the balance between fruit and tartness...I wonder if the lactose and vanilla do much, but this is pretty rounded. thornecb (6231) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Pours ruby blue into a snifter. Pink head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Lemon and vanilla aromas. Sharp with vanilla and lemon upfront. Mild hint of blueberry and lacto in the medium length finish. ClarkVV (7099) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2017
June 2017 bottle drunk 7/18/17.
Blood red with no head. Lightly cloudy, though not overly so.
Smells tart, even though that's not an aroma. Vanilla and lactic acid are well-integrated, as usual for this series. Fruity and moderately juicy with lots of peppery, tannic blueberry skin.
Dry and heavily carbonated to start with more vanilla than usual, though it works nicely alongside the dry, tart, tannic, acidic blueberry character. It's not as starkly dry, lactic and borderline astringent as the mango version, but it's also no where near as juicy, full and round as the cherry/raspberry/blackberry versions.
