4.54/5 rDev +0.7%
Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a snifter. Reviewed from notes from last night.
Appearance: Pours a deep raspberry/maroon color and leaves a finger of white head that fades to a rim around the edge of the glass.
Smell: Nice funky blueberry, grassy funk, nice mild sour aroma. Pleasant wine-y influence as well.
Taste: Matches the smell quite well - balanced funky blueberry, grassy funk, nice dry wine-y finish. Very well balanced and drinkable.
Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly creamy body. Slightly dry finish.
Overall: This is a great blueberry beer - the blueberry flavor matches the fruit not the artificial blueberry stuff. Nice and mild, with the right amount of funk and sour.

A lovely, dark blueberry colour with hints of ruby shining through.
Mostly oak and sour farm house must on the nose, but with definite notes of blueberry and a tiny bit of wheat.
Sour funk and oak lead through wonderfully balanced notes of sweet blueberry and wheat.

One of the most beautiful beers I've poured. Overall, thought the beer could use some more carbonation and some more souring, but that's just me. The blueberry flavor was a homerun, but having this after BB Flanders left me wanting more acidity and funk to this beer.

375ml bottle. Thanks Dustin. Poured into a taster glass 8/9/2014.
A- Beautiful purple-blue body with a nice half finger pink head. Wow. This is so unique and beautiful looking.
S- Blueberries galore. This is full of rich, bright blueberries with that Vermont funk. Lots of white vinous smell here as well. Fantastic.
F- Unfortunately it doesn't quite live up to how it smells; fairly restrained with a fair amount of white vinous tartness mixed in with a touch of blueberries; there's a bit of that base Florence wheat flavour as well.
M- Medium in body, fairly well carbonated. The finish leaves a bit to be desired compared to Flora. I'd have liked a bit more of a dry white wine finish to it.
O- Regular Flora is still king.. But this beer looks and smells absolutely phenomenal.
