Had this last night on tap at Ebenezer's, served in a tulip glass.
A: Looks like a stout almost, but has a slight blue hue. 1/2 inch of head lingers a few minutes before dissipating. I was surprised how dark it was.
S: Blueberries and vinegar. You can tell there's sourness awaiting.
T: Again, blueberries dominate, along with the sour element. There are also very subtle hints of oak, but they're overpowered by the fresh wild blueberry flavor. While drinking this, I had no idea the alcohol was 11%....it's hidden incredibly well. I've had several blueberry beers in the past, but this is by far the best.
M: Very nice for a sour. Certainly not watery, and leaning a bit more toward the creamy end.
Overall: I don't understand nor agree with a few of the low reviews of this beer. I'm guessing they're from people who don't appreciate the sour style. I found it to be fantastic and cannot wait to have another poured at Ebenezer's today. I usually gravitate toward the IPA's, but if this is what a sour can be, count me in as a fan.

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.

A - Dark chocolate with blueberry accents. No head or foam.
S - Blueberry pie, lactic acid, slight acetone. Tart nose to it.
T - Balsamic vinegar with a slight funky, almost gym sock presence to it. Barely any blueberry but lots of acetone.
MF - Tart with tons of carbonation to it. Good funk and dry finish
O -I didn't enjoy this one too much as the gym sock presence with the acetone threw it off.
