Pours cloudy and purple-tinged amber in color. In strong light, it's brightly magenta. Small off-white head. The head dies away relatively quickly. No big deal, regardless, but particularly not for a sour. The aroma shows off the sourness right away. Lots of acetic and lactic sourness. Lemons and oak. The blueberries come through but get a bit muddled and could definitely be brighter and fruitier. This is a beer to drink sooner rather than later - probably a bit late with this bottle, already. Some vanilla. It's pleasant enough but fairly simple and a touch harsh. The fruit doesn't show up as juicy as I'd like, and there's a sort of bile-ish note to it. More than anything, it doesn't have the funk delicacy of better sours. Taste is similarly a bit too harsh and simple. The acidity is strong and needs to be dialed back so other flavors can shine. Sour blueberries and oak. Finish is a bit gummy as the acidity passes. The vanilla shows up again. Lots of pucker. A bit tough to drink after the first six-ish ounces. Happy to have tried it but it didn't live up to expectations. The base sour just isn't quite my cup of tea.

A -Dark raspberry color with a nice plum head
S - Blueberry, tart raspberry, lactic acid, slight balsamic vinegar.
T -Tart raspberry with a good lactic acid presence. Has a bit of the creamy butter presence that you find in a lot of Bruery sours. Light tart raspberry near the end
M - Good carbonation, medium body with a dry finish to it.
O - Don't get much blueberry as it reminds me of a raspberry beer crossed with the buttery Bruery presence to it. Decent but not that great.

Good beer. The blueberries, for me, were most noticeable on the finish and were very pure in flavor and added a nice bit of complexity to this sour ale. The beer reminded me of Oude Tarte in terms of acidity and mouthfeel, but with a bit more lift and freshness. Good beer.
