Best natural blueberry flavor I've experienced in a beer, although it is more of a side note than a feature. Overall, quite sour and mild flavored with no hint of bitter nor warmth. This beer features a subtle fruit note and isn't afraid to leave it at that.

Fans of farmhouse ales and all of their close cousins will enjoy.

Pours a cloudy, orange/pink color. 1/3 inch head of an slightly pink color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of fruits, floral, hint of tartness, slight pale malt, slight sweet malt, and some astringency. Fits the style of a Berliner Weissbier. Mouth feel is tart, dry, sharp, and crisp. There is an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus, slight sweet malt, sour notes, hint of hop, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, very good beer. Good appearance, aroma, body, and complexity.

T: Not too tart. Palate cleansing and not too funky.

M: Only slightly prickly.

O: I've also had it from the bottle and wasn't a big fan of either one. It's good but I wish it was more fruit forward.

I had this on tap at Toronado SF quite recently - about $8 for a 12oz pour, but I've never had a blueberry sour beer before and I've heard good things about this beyond merely the hilarious label that adorns the bottle. Poured into a tulip glass.

Yup, it's a blueberry sour all right - unlike other fruits I've seen these beers infused with, this is neither red or ruby, but rather a combination of violet, pink, and garnet that makes this very nice looking. Not necessarily glimmering in its appearance, it is nevertheless rustic, slightly cloudy, and takes on an authentic portrayal of the Berliner weiss style. There's a slight fizzy off-white head that coats the top of the glass, but it dissipates extremely quickly, leaving behind a flat looking fruit drink of sorts. From afar, I don't think I'd ever be able to tell that this had blueberries, but the color is nice enough to warrant interest.

Yes, luckily enough, the flavor is most definitely of blueberries, or rather, tart juicy berries and fruits of all kinds. At the front, there's an immediately jolt of ripe blueberries (seeds, skins, and all), as well as raspberries, boysenberries, and slight blackberries. Watermelon and guava are two other fruits that come right in. Other than that, there's a slight acetic note combined with a little bit of funk and soured flavors that are barnyard-like and definitely a bit creamy. Not too many spices come in, although, there definitely are notes of baking soda and wheat way at the back, with perhaps a bit of lactic sweetness. Not too complex, but the fruit is quite forward on this in a delightful and refreshing manner.

The flavor is more of the same, only delivering the much expected acidity and tart feel that I fully expected this to have. Right at the front of the palate, there's strong, puckering notes of sour blueberry skins, raspberries, watermelon, and dragon fruit (??), as well some green apple, lemon peel, and straw flavors that straight from the acetic sourness. Slightly lactic at the back, with notes of caramel and cracked wheat, but not as bready as you'd expect. Can I claim that this beer has a watered down feel that's the equivalent of adding crushed ice to under-ripe juiced beverage? Because that's exactly what it feels like, and I'm glad it's that way, as the consistency prevents this from being to watery or thin overall, in spite of the fact that the fruits at hand are thinned skinned ones to begin with. Delightful stuff, but I do wish there was more going on beyond the fruit.

At the low ABV and easy drinkable quality, this is a very accessible yet easy drinking blueberry sour. Blueberries contain just the right tart level and acidity to make them a perfect addition to sour beers, and I really wish more people were doing things with it rather than usually going for cherries or currants. Good stuff - definitely one of the more memorable beers I've had from Evil Twin in a while - and trust me, it's not just because of the label!!

Perverted to the core, the marketeering of this beer is simply not right. Its all of what's wrong with the world as I feel ashamed simply looking at its label. Excuse me while I go shower...

Hazy mauve in color, the ale releases a delicate lacy creme that slowly recedes but regenerates easily with a swirl of the glass. Light on lace, the ales acidity gets the better of its foam character, but that's to be expected.

Lemony to the scent, a musty tartness wafts about with complementary notes of dry cider and white wine vinegar. But then an even more sturdy fruit note emerges- its the unmistakable blueberry notes, and not the artificial candy blueberry flavor but true vine-picked blueberries in all its musty tartness and and robust earthiness.

Its taste is highly lemony, but lightly salty, cork-like and sour with the taste of white grapes, light vinegar, wine and crab apples. Its lemon and lime-type sourness folds in a bright blueberry taste with all its tart citric acidity and little of the fruictose- keeping the beer clean, crisp and dedicated to the taste of Berlinerweiss first.

Light bodied throughout, the beer's sheer sourness causes a lightness on the palate, aided with the bold spritzy texture of champagne. Thinning late, the would-be astringency of blueberry skins is buffered nicely by the light bready after texture of wheat.

After the bottle is forcefully discarded, what remains in the beer is outstanding. The beer doesn't get in the fruit's way and the fruit doesn't get in the ale's way and this creates a harmonious blend and is still well-infused.

Count me a belabaer--I mean a believer. Nice pinkish, cloudy color with lots of head. An amazing aroma of sweetness, sourness, strawberries, and especially blueberries. An in-your-face blueberry explosion of sweet alcohol. Fine mouthfeel that supports but does not overpower the flavors. Just a superbly done and tasty beer from start to finish. Yum.

This beer was brewed twice although they are different. One batch at Evil Twin and a second batch in collaboration with Westbrook.

No head really on a murky pink, really grapefruit meat colored body. No lacing. Aroma is of musty strawberry, blueberry and lemon citrus. The nose is strong and tart overall. Flavor is as tart as you would expect for the style with more of what was encountered in the aroma with citrus, blueberry and strawberry on a wheat base. Perfect degree of tartness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Flavorful beer, I am very interested in trying the original Evil Twin version for comparison.

3.53/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is reminiscent of pink grapefruit. There was no head at all. The nose was slightly tart, but little else. The flavor was distinctly that of blueberries. It was pleasantly tart and easily drinkable – perfect for a muggy and hot summer day.

There was no hint of malt or hop flavors, so this may appeal to people who do not like beer.

However, as someone who actually likes beer, this was an interesting diversion but not anything that I would consider to be a serious beer offering.
Maybe I’ll have it again at a Sunday brunch. Outside of that, I’ll stick with something heartier.

S- light wheat with a touch of lacto and blueberry

T- slightly tart blueberry with a light wheat malt finish, very nice

M- body holds up with carbonation adequate for the style

O- incredibly drinkable and delivers on the tart blueberry flavor.

I've had this numerous times on-tap and from the bottle. This review was from the Northdown Berliner event. Served in a tulip.

A - More foam here than the Banhof, and it eventually settles to a thin collar. Salmon-colored body.

S - The draft version seems to have blueberry presence than the bottles, but in general it's not the most expressive fruit. What's there is mostly blueberry skin rather than flesh. Tart, with some mild lemon character, but nowhere near as acidic as the Bahnhof.

T - The taste has a little more tartness to it, amid the berry skins, pale malts, and wheat flavors. Perhaps a tad simplistic, but largely enjoyable.

M - Medium-light body, with crisp, pleasant carbonation. Dry, with mild acidity. Pretty refreshing.

D - It's a well-crafted Berliner with a nice accent of blueberry to it. A tad expensive for what it is, but eminently drinkable and enjoyable. Looking forward to trying the wine barrel-aged version.

On tap at Appalachian Vintner, Asheville NC

A- pours a hazy peach color with a small rapidly vanishing head, that leaves just a ring around the edges

S- light and fruity with citrus notes and blueberry

T- light, tart and fruity, notes of peach and blueberry. Finish is astringent and bone dry, crisp wheat linger

M- light body with moderate, fizzy carbonation. Crisp and refreshing finish

O- my first of the style, very fruity and refreshing, just enough tartness to make it go down fast

On-tap at Tørst in NYC, served in a large wine glass.

A- Pours a dark, opaque blueberry/purple color, has a nice inch of pinkish head, which has great retention and leaves a lot of delicate lacing. It looks awesome.

S- Has a subtle aroma of blueberry flesh, which really starts to come out as the beer warms, there's also a very nice earthy funk, oak and wheat. The aroma is very nice and pretty complex for a Berliner.

T- Tastes great, the tartness is moderate to high, spot-on for a Berliner, mostly lactic acid with a hint of acetic, finishes with a lingering flavor of blueberry skins and juice.

M- Light-bodied, with a tart, dry feel.

O- I was really impressed by this. I had this just a few days after Hunahpu Day, where I tried a lot of great Berliners from Funky Buddha, and this beer is definitely on par with a lot of the best Florida Berliners. I had only had big stouts from Evil Twin before, so it was also cool to see Jeppe do such a different style and to totally nail it. This is a great beer, definitely seek this out.

A: This poured a nearly opaque pinkish gold (like a pink grapefruit), with lots of fizzy white head.
S: It smelled like wet cardboard and copper hops and vinegar and funky sour yeast.
T: It tasted like white wine vinegar and metallic hops, with some sour yeast and a little unripe apricot. It had a crisp tart aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Bubbly body.
D: This was an ok berliner weisse, but no blueberry was noticeable. It was more like a subpar gueuze, with an uninteresting scent and taste and body. The finish was a bit harsh too, so must be sipped. Age may help, but this was really not worth buying in the first place.

22oz bottle poured into a witbier glass.

A: Pours golden with a light pink/purple hue. A lively, crackling head retains at a quarter inch. No lacing to speak of.

S: Acidic and tart, as a Berliner Weisse should be. Touch of musty funk. Whiffs of mashed blueberries and blueberry skins. Subtle wheaty and toasty undertones.

T: Puckeringly sour from the get-go. Lemony tart and acidic. Blueberries begin to temper the tartness a bit and actually come to the forefront on the mid palate. Mild yeasty undertones. Flashes of creamy wheat. A nice fresh blueberry taste with a fading tartness concludes things.

M: Light bodied. Slight creamy wheat impression. Light acidic astringency. Firm but gentle carbonation adds a refreshing scrub of the palate.

O: The blueberries add a great little contrast. Don't turn your nose up at it or write it off as a gimmick. This is a seriously tasty and refreshing quaff. I dare these guys to six-pack this in the summer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a beatiful, hazy, raspberry-magenta. Head is white and one finger. Head retention and lacing were below average.

Smell is dominated by tart berries and sour green apples. No hops or alcohol are detected. Aromas are pretty one note, fruity and sour.

Taste seems more like sour raspberries than blueberries. Beer is very acidic along with flavors of granny smith apples. Straw malts are very light, hops and alcohol are non existent.

Mouthfeel is very effervescent and light. Carbonation is that closer to a champagne than beer. Wish carbonation contributed more to the body.

Overall this beer was above average but pretty one note. Very puckering with nothing to balance the flavors at all. Not the best sour beer I've had.

A: pours a light purple pinkish hue with a white head that quickly dissipates.

S: aroma is tart and sour with hints of berries. Reminds me of cherry Jolly Ranchers!

T: flavor is refreshingly tasty with slight dry tartiness and the subtleness of grapes.

M: feels very light on the tongue, slightly crisp and bright from the sourness, but asides from that, easy comes easy goes.

O: this is my first berliner weissbier so i don't have much reference to compare it except for sours and goses from which i've already had Westbrook's Gose and this feels much more subtle in terms of tartiness. Not sure if i would call it a summer beer, but i can imagine being a great entree beer for a night of seafood and shrimp cocktails.

Bottle from Gator Beverage. Pours pinkish purplish red, hazy, with a on finger pink fluffy and spritzy head. Aroma of, good lord what the hell is this? Straight vinegar and maybe some nail polish remover. Really awful honestly. Flavor is some blueberry up front, sourness, very light flavor and rather watered down, finishes with some metallic blueberry skin. Lingering wheaty sourness on the palate. Meh. Extremely light bodied with very high carbonation. This has no redeeming qualities. Drainpour city.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance - Beautiful color; slightly cloudy, red/purple with a tint of orange. A carbonated, white colored head with a tint of red/purple sat beautifully atop the beer. Any visible sign of carbonation/bubbles is lost due to the haze.

Aroma - Tartness is strong as expected from a Berliner Weissbier. Some blueberry flavors come through but was expecting a stronger sense of it.

Taste - Lemon tartness followed by the berry flavors. A malt breadiness can be detected in the end.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is strong on the tip of the tongue. Tartness is felt throughout the mouth and lingers in the end for a bit.

Overall - One of my favorite styles and this beer is a great reflection of what the style should be. However, was hoping for stronger berry flavors on the taste and aroma.

OMG it’s Justin Blabaer!!!! Evil Twin brewery made this beer which is like saying “Frank Zappa wrote this song” it’s going to be a trip that some will love, many will hate but all will remember. Cutesy labeling looks like Seventeen Magazine meets Snuff Illustrated meets Inside Joke Advocate Quarterly. Beer is advertised as a malt beverage with blueberries. A paltry 4.5% ABV with this makes it a standard ale, one you’d expect not to be overloaded with flavor, although the bottle proclaims “We’ve stuffed so many blueberries into this beer you’ll go OH BABY!” Ok…
Beer pours translucent to purple and winds up settling into a grape hued caramel in the glass. The smell is tart, bitter and forward. Either this beer is going to live up to it’s proclamation of being “loaded” with flavor, or it’s a decade past it’s drink by date.
Taste is a MEGA bitter tart dark cherry flavor and that’s it. The taste winds up being a no holds barred battle between tart fruit and old school warheads candy. I’m struggling with my imagination to pick out any notes of the blueberry here and I just can’t find them. I also feel like punching someone while drinking this as I can feel a canker sore break out on my tongue by way of the bitterness.
Mouth feel is syrupy and tart, sticks to your tongue and throat and doesn’t really go away before the next sip.
What to say? This one is not for everyone. You need to like bitter, you need to like tart and be able to drink a beer that tastes more like cherry concentrate than a standard ale. It’s a deviation from the ordinary but that’s what I’d expect from a company that names it’s beers Justin Blabaer, Spicy Nacho, Even More Jesus and Wet Dream.
I enjoyed it, it was a trip to the circus in a beer glass, the clowns were happy and the elephants trampled the ringleader under a marzipan tent… yup that’s where I’m at.

Cheers

Thanks to cistercian12 for sending this! Much appreciated. Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Peg's snifter glass.

A: Hazy reddish and purplish copper, with a thin white head and good visible carbonation.

S: Light lactic tartness, lemony and citric, and maybe a touch of berry aroma.

T: Follows the nose almost exactly - I get no real blueberry flavor to speak of. Moderate citric and lactic tartness and acidity, and these last into the hang. Some light crystal and wheat malts, and some ill-defined fruitiness. Note - some blueberry flavor tries to develop as it warms. I let the last few sips get essentially to room temperature, though, and and it never really stood out.

M: Light body, average carbonation sensation for the style, and very low alcohol presence.

O: It's not that it's offensive or anything. But this doesn't even approach some of the truly good Berliners or sours around. I'm feeling let down by this one. Not tart enough, nor enough fruit.

22oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a tulip.

A bit of a gusher. Pours out a hazy orange, almost pink color. Definatly looks like the color probably started light yellowish and was influenced by the blueberries. Big 2 fingers of soapy, fizzy white head quickly receeds to nothing. Lots of streaming carbonation bubbles.

The aroma is big lactic sourness with maybe a slight hint of a tart blueberry. As it warms you get a bit of funk and a lot more blueberry and maybe other berry like aromas. A hint of bread.

A nice taste, big sour, tart up front and then this very bready lactic yeastiness comes in. Breadiness lingers into the finish. Hard to find much blueberry flavor. Tart lemon citrus from the sour.

Not insanely sour, but packs a nice punch that will stick around in your palate. Somewhat refreshing and easy to drink. High carbonation. Light body.

I haven't had too many Berliners to say if this is to style or not but I enjoyed it. Didn't get much blueberry but has a nice lactic feel and sourness. I'd drink this again.

A- Pours a very hazy, fairly vibrant raspberry-purple. The blueberries definitely imparted some blue into the color. Medium to large head forms and goes down to a thin film after a moment or two. There is just a little bit of lacing

S- Starts with the smallest bit of tart scent. Bits of blueberry are thrown in there, along with a tiny bit of lemon/citrus flavor. Overall impression towards the end is fresh bread dough...and I'm not sure why.

T- Starts with more than just a mild pang of fruity tartness. The tart flavor is very much that of a Berliner, with a touch of blueberry mixed in. Tart flavor is prominent throughout, moving more towards some tart blueberry flavor at the end. Slight lingering sour flavor with some grainy blueberry flavor mixed in after the drink ends.

M- Very highly carbonated and rather light across the tongue. Tart/sour flavor makes it a slower drink. Level of sour flavor is less refreshing like a Berliner, and more puckering like a wild or lambic.

Overall, a very good, fruited version of a Berliner. This one is somewhere in between a Berliner and a fruited lambic as far as flavor and tartness goes. It's worth a try, even if a little expensive for what you're getting.

hard to believe i waited so long to try this, what a great blueberry sour. pink and cloudy in color without much head, true to limbic in looks. the nose is really lactic and tart, more acid than berries over a wheat malt base. it seems vinegary from the nose, and the flavor follows that, sour all the way into my jaw, i really love the flavor. the blueberries come out a lot more in the finish than at first, even after the swallow, and they blend well with a biscuity cookie malt finish. sour as they come, this is a puckery beer to say the least. i would like a little more blueberry through the beer, but i understand most of their flavor is sugars that are fermented out in the brew. brightly carbonated this beer really pops. maybe too acidic to drink a lot of, but splitting a bomber with a friend is a good dose. cool beer from evil twin with a great comical label.
