Epic thanks to Threelions for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a glorious blueberry juice hue, lightly hazy, thin light purple head that leaves light wisps and a fluffy halo.

S - Aromas of funky flora goodness. Nice barrel notes, the blueberry was strong and juicy but faded some one it breathed in to more of a skin/stem note.

T - Taste is tart flora up front and wine barrel. Deep tasting brings out light blueberry juice then more skin. Nice dry wine notes, good sourness, however, not getting tons of blueberry.

M - Mouthfeel is very effervescent. Nice carbonation.

O - Overall this was good, however, wish the blueberry was more juicy. Delicious beer though.

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.

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!
