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

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2008
750ml bottle. Thanks to miketd for sharing. Aroma: Wheat malt hits me first, and then a strong dose of blueberry. Smells tart, but no funk to speak of. Some light oakiness comes forward as it warms. Appearance: Rose/purple in color and slightly hazed. Head was small and fizzy with a noticeable blue tint. No lacing. Flavor: Wheat malt hits me first again. Blueberry flavor is nice with a good blend of berry flavor, sweetness, and a strong tartness. Some lemon, slight cheesiness, and oak. Not as tart as I was expecting, but seems to work here. Very dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: An interesting beer, and one I’m glad I tried. Some more funk would have been welcome.

Pours red-tinged amber with a thin but serviceable eggshell head. Aroma delivers tart fruity, berry and malty character. Flavor offers mouth-twisting tart fruit and berry supported by nice malty tone. Mouthfeel features decent fizz and body. Sing the blues-berries.

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 thats really the only knock I can give it. Tart and dry to finish. Exceeds expectations and thats always a plus!

tmoreau (4160) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to a snifter showing a hazed grape juice color, with a quickly diminishing layer of pink head foam to a bubbly ring and minimal spots of lacing. Settled down to a somewhat vinous look in the glass. The nose was mild yeast, blueberry, plum, and concord grape, tart & dry. The taste was similar, light to medium bodied, with low carbonation that gave the texture a thinner, watery feel. Flavorful Lambic that finished dry, with some tannic bitterness, but not impressed by the lack of lively effervescence.

phaleslu (9926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2016
750 ml bottle via trade. Bottled 11-13-14, batch 0-14. Pours a clear ruby-rose color with a small, fizzy rose-tinted white head that settles into a lasting ring. I had prepared my friends for the most sour one theyd probably taste all weekend, and it certainly was that, albeit not as aggressive as Id anticipated. Blueberry, lemon, oak, grape skins, some pie sweetness, red wine vinegar, and flower petals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour, acetic, floral mouthfeel that gets more sour as it crosses the palate. When it first hits its fairly mellow, but it hits you by the end. Still - not the most sour Upland fruit lambic. At least not this batch.

Really nice blueberry aroma, great to style. Palate a little thick but flavor of blueberry and tartness were very good. Finishes with obvious blueberry taste.
