22 oz. bottle, consumed on 10-27-15. 2015 edition with at least several months of age on it. Pours a surprisingly dark brown with a deep amber hue and a small amount of short-lasting, taupe head. Good-looking beer; nice hue. Cinnamon spiciness in the nose, reminiscent of cinnamon gum. Appetizingly tart smell; crabapple scent. Likable smell but I wish it exhibited greater complexity. Band-Aid chemical taste dominates. Dry apples in the flavor. Lightly salty, lemony taste. Little to no sourness; its the Brett not any bacteria that dominates. Soft in the palate. Medium body. Gets off to a good start in appearance and aroma but lets the imbiber down with its forgettable flavor and palate effects. A below average, though not radically below average, Sour/Wild Ale.

Slubgob (315) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 12, 2015
2015 I guess, as its 2015? Bar doesnt list anything other than "New Holland Blue Sunday." Blueberry wine color, very unusual for a beer. Fine cream colored head. Blueberry wine/vinegar nose, mellowing to a candied blueberry with a bit of time. Mild sour predominates on the mouth, with a fuller blueberry backbone underneath. Fast slightly tannic finish. Good if unremarkable sour.

onceblind (8210) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Clear dark purple ruby with an aroma like blueberry cake and a bit of lactic woody barrel. Wonderful flavor of tart blueberry and woody lacto sour tones. A little cake like but wonderfully sour and flavorful.

Bottle received in a trade, thanks Brandon! -- Bomber poured into a snifter. Its a beautiful copper with blue/purple colors throughout. Nice sour and tartness, not overpowering. Finishes well, makes you want more.

rodenbach99 (4385) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2015
Bouteille achet aux USA partage avec SlovakSniper (time crit sous la capsule). Une robe rouge acajou avec une mousse beige. Un nez intense de cerise et de bois. Une bouche tout aussi boise avec des cerises. Des saveurs surettes, un corps avec une belle texture agrable, une Rodenbach vintage sans le got vinaigr. Superbe.

ChrisSc (464) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2015
2015 vintage. Traverse city. Amber-ruby in color. Small rim of offwhite head. Aroma is lactic and a little funky. Nice oak. Some basement notes. Balsamic vinegar. Some subtle friuty notes. Taste is sour with some underlying sweetness. Body is medium with a thick texture. Long finish. Pretty nice sour. Good balance. Decent complexity.

Dark red pour from draft at Jerrys. White. Berry, fruity, cherries and happiness on the nose. Sour cherry taste. Tart and makes your cheeks pucker - love it

Smelled of cheap perfume, didn't taste much better. Sour I guess but also badly funky and acetone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
