look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

On-tap at Northdown. Served in a tulip.

A - Purple foam settles to a thin collar and specks of lace. Very dark purple-blue body.

S - Blueberry skins, some tartness, touch of mineral that is more consistent with the first batch of Spontan- beers. Light lactic and lemony sourness to it. Wish there was more intense fruit here, but on the whole it's pleasant enough.

T - The taste is similar, with very understated fruit. Some under ripe blueberry skin and perhaps a hint of fleshy sweetness. Less mineral, and more lactic sourness in the finish. Curious what lambic was used to get an 8.5% beer, but the flavor profile was quite similar to Cantillon for me.

M - Smooth texture, medium body, lower carbonation, and no discernible alcohol. Moderately juicy, with a dry finish. Came out of the tap super foamy which I think killed a lot of the bubbles.

D - Nice enough, but I'm not sure it warranted me sticking around until 7pm to try it. Neither enough fruity sweet, nor enough lambic sourness or funk; just kind of understated and meh for me. (1,046 characters)

Bought as a guest bottle at 18th Street back in April.

Pours a thick, dark purple that(with a vigorous pour) supplied 2" of dark raspberry head that faded into a thin ring of tiny bubbles around the glass. A quick twirl in the snifter revealed some dark sediment that I'm assuming was blueberry skin. The nose was light unripened blueberries and a strong lacto sour. None of the oak I was expecting, but it comes though slightly in the taste. BIG sour and good blueberry with a nice texture. Overall a good sour, but just a little too expensive to grab again. (560 characters)

Jan 2015 - purchased and consumed within days of NYC release.

At 21 bucks for a 375ml bottle seemed a bit nuts but ended up being well worth it. This was best blueberry sour I have had to this date.

The blueberries took center stage by far. It's hugely sour as well but the blueberry explosion comes out on top. The playful color contrast between head-body, the subtle oak notes, the medium tartness, the pleasantly dry finish, and the soft carbonation dance all left me with a huge smile on my face.

The Spontan series has been hit or miss with me, but the DoubleBlueberry was a huge hit (only topped by SpontanCherryFrederiksdal). (637 characters)
