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.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Nice purple body. Small pinkish white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Tart blueberry. Kinda yogurty. White wine. Some oak.

Taste - Blueberry is really nice here. Still has a yogurty sourness. Oak. Lightly funky and woody finish.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Woody and well carbonated.

Overall - Excellent. The blueberry character is impressive.

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!
