Served in a tumbler.

According to my research, this is a resurrection of an award-winning Pro-Am beer created by Black Star members Dan and Joelle Dewberry. It's an English old ale brewed with a sour mash. Right on. It pours a murky sunshine sienna topped by a half-finger or so of wan khaki foam. The nose comprises dankly-fresh blueberries, sweet caramel sauce, very light rye bread, and a twinge of tart blue raspberry. The taste brings in more of the same, with a sort of sour pineapple juice things mixing with the aforementioned components. What results is a liquid, tarter version of a blueberry Pop-Tart. Sort of. Maybe. Something like that. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly fluid feel. Overall, a very nice beer. It's easy to see why this won some accolades.
