COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber's Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole blueberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Best fruit sour this brewery made. Smashing great blueberry nose aroma flavor all way through to crisp dry light carbonation and finish. Perfect lambic funk and cheese and Brett. Great oaky maple character from cellaring. Get this when ever you can

Thanks to yjb for supplying me with this bottle. Pours deep red with some fizzy white bubbles. Smells of funk, blueberries, brett, oak, dust, some residual sugary hints. Tastes tarte with a load of complimentary blueberries, some sweet touches, an underlying intense dry sourness and hints of oak. This is an amazing beer and I can’t wait to sample the strawberry and blackberry versions.

The beer pours perfectly beet red blue with a dark purple hue and huge creamy pinkish purple head. The aroma is smooth blueberry sour funk with some nice wild yeast going on. The flavor is awesome - sour and a bit of infection with perfectly blueberry funk and fresh blueberries settling so pleasantly on the palate. The mouthfeel isn’t too bubbly, as I expected, soft and smooth, perfect for a sour.

shared by MrBendo at Moose’s YEHA. Deep hazy amber in color. Aroma is sour cherries, blueberry, light notes of funky cheese. Taste is tart fruit (cherry), light to moderately funky with some horseblanket, and some sweet blueberries and light notes of caramel malt in the background. Finishes moderately sour with lingering light blueberry.

One of my highlights at YEHA. Poured light purplish color with lively head. Aroma is of tart blueberry, funk. Taste has a wonderful tartness, brett funk, woody, with a very nice balance of blueberry. Crisp, dry and great. I want more.

Nice lambic aroma. Fruity and the blueberry aromas mix with the sour lambic aromas beautifully Nice red color with pinkish head. Incredible beer. I’ll admit, I’ve had a bunch of beer tonight, but this beer is the best so far. If is wonderful. Sweet!

2015 bottle at a share. Had low expectations on this because of reviews, but I was blown away, along with the other people there. Pours a beautiful pink/purple/red mixture. clear, small head. Aroma of blueberry, grape, wood, tart, sour, funky, acidic, hay, grass. Flavor followed the nose. Acidic, blueberries and grapes, grass and hay, woody, tart and funky. Light body, thin texture, kind of over-carbed, but that’s really the only knock I can give it. Tart and dry to finish. Exceeds expectations and that’s always a plus!
