This is a strange brew. I like sours but this one pushes the envelope hard.

Arrives a deeply purple color, almost black. A faint head drops like a rock in a quarry. No lace in this 11% beer.
Smell is strong blueberry, oak, tart cherry, a medicinal note that reminds me of paint thinner or cider vinegar. Supremely tart. Nice to see the blueberry come through so well.
Taste is hugely, overwhelmingly, tart, balsamic vinegar, oak and malt.
Body is medium to medium-light with a faint effervescence, almost an uncarbonated feel to it. Astringent like vinegar, as well.
This is not for the faint-hearted, the tartness is insane (and this from someone who actually drinks balsamic and cider vinegars on occasion!). I shared this with a friend and at the end we were both glad to not have to drink an entire snifter by ourselves. Worth trying once but probably never again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into wine glass.

A - Nice blue-black color, with blue around the edges. Small fizzy bubbles. Coke-like appearance.

S - Blueberries, some sourness. Has mellowed over time as it has aged several months in keg.

T - Blueberries, fairly substantial sourness, dark fruits. Mild sweetness. Very satisfying.

M - Medium body. Just a touch of creaminess to make it go down more slowly.

O - This beer purportedly ages well with less vinegary and acidic taste than when fresh. Smooth, fruity, delicious.
