look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.

Poured from the bottle into a HF tasting glass.

Appeared a dark purple color with a small, off-white head.

Smelled of fresh blueberries, some tartness, a bit of sparkling wine.

Taste is delicious- fresh blueberries, solid tartness, finishes dry. Blueberry is present but not overpowering. Delicious!

Mouthfeel is light and quite bubbly.

Overall this was a special treat, one that I am thankful to get to try. Awesome!

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.
