Bottle pour at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.
Billed as a sour blonde ale with blueberries.
Pours a murky light red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of sour, tart, and funky with fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of berry flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super tasty and easy to drink.

Another one split with Rudzud due to our membership.
Light fizzy purple head, murky dark mahogany slight reddish blueberry juice.
Nose nice tart sour wild beer, tart fruit, acidic bite, blueberry flesh and light stem tannic, floral wild funk, blueberry pie filling, there's also light grainy blond ale underneath with hints of grainy crust, fairly sweet blueberry candy, nice tartness.
Taste is very sour, very very sour, big tart fruit, acetic acid, nice acidic bite, big blueberry pie, fresh blueberry flesh and skin, blueberry pie filling with light sweet blueberry candy, light stem tannin, nice sour blond ale too, light vinous funk and tart fruit, but plenty of blueberry. Finish is light flemmy, bit sticky syrupy but fairly dry, tart mouth puckering sour blond, plenty more blueberry lingering.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb, light acidic burn.

i have not had a ton of blueberry sours, i can recall evil twin, cascade, and a handful of others, and this is definitely up there with the best of them. a great use of blueberries and a rather sour lambic type brew. the pour is gorgeous, deep dark pink, sort of purple, but way darker than raspberry or cherry beers obviously from the skins of the berries. good inch of white foam too. it smells like lacto first, extremely acidic and oaky, a good indication that the base beer is outstanding, which it is. similar to rueuze really, maybe less complex, but the same sourness is present. the berries dont add a ton to the smell, maybe some generic fruitiness, but its hard to identify them specifically. the taste is a whole different story, the blueberries are right up front and center, ripe and tart, just a little sweet, blueberry preserves and lemon juice carry through the whole flavor. the finish is all acid, i can taste the blonde sour through the fruit. its a similar base for the bruery i think, it seems familiar to me, but the blueberries transform it. they say to drink it fresh, and this bottle is over a year old, but certainly i dont think the fruit has fallen off much, its really buzzing. nice carbonation, no leftover sugar, and just a really well made fruit brew from the bruery, who seems to have these styles on lock.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Bruery tulip.
a - Pours a deep, hazy pinkish-purple color with one finger of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Big fan of the color of beers like this; looks great.
s - Smells of sour blueberries, sour dark fruits, lactic notes, spice, some funk, and light earthy and floral notes. Loads of blueberries and very sour; exactly what I was hoping for. The funk is very light, but it is a great smelling beer.
t - Tastes of sour blueberries, tart dark fruits, light funk, oak, lactic notes, spices, yeast, and earthy notes. Taste is extremely sour, mouth puckeringly so. Very nice, though I liked the nose a bit better.
m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Acidic.
o - Overall I liked this beer a lot; pretty much what I was expecting and hoping for. Loads of sour blueberries and some light funk throughout, glad I have a few bottles of this one. If you like the Bruery's other sour offering and like blueberries than you'll really like this one.
