3.63/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours light purple with a matching head. Smells like slightly tart blueberries. Taste is dominated by blueberry up front with a slight funky tart aftertaste. Mouthfeel is slightly on the thicker side with low carbonation. Overall a pretty good beer, glad I picked one up.

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

Pours out a nice bluish/red with a small head that is white with a bluish red tint with little retention. Smell is immediately brettish with a little blueberry in the back. Smells decent but nothing out of the ballpark. Still smell nice. Taste is a little brettish funk with some definite blueberry taste and slightly acidic although not tart or anything. Mouthfeel is fairly nice from the carbonation as it is a tad thicker than I expected. Overall it has a little funk and a little blueberry but it has a little strange taste that I can't put my finger on. I love fruit beers more than others so I find this beer to be OK but really wasn't the beer I was hoping for. I'll update if it starts tasting nicer once it warms up a bit.

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

L: Pours lively hazy pink under a thin white foam collar with a light pink tint. S: Big blueberry nose with some light grains and a hint of rye spice in the background. T: Very lemony tart with big blueberry flavors weaving in and out as the beer moves over the tongue. The tartness of the fruit cries out for a big plate of fish and chips or some calamari. Has a tart, almost puckeringly dry finish. F: Light, tart, effervescent, refreshing. O: This is a very good summer beer that is much better than I expected.

A: The beer is hazy bluish red in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down,leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of blueberries are present in the nose along with some hints of sourness.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of blueberries - but these seem to be natural instead of artificial.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly tart on the palate and has a bit shy of a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked this beer because the blueberry flavors seemed natural and not artificial.

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

A: Pours a hazy bluish purple in color (just what I would expect from a blueberry beer) with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some deep purple highlights. The beer has a finger tall purplish white fizzy head that reduces to a couple of medium sized patches of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal to light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of blueberries over lighter aromas of barnyard funk and sourness. Very light hints of oak.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of sourness not dissimilar to what you would find in a lambic along with moderate flavors of natural blueberries which lend just a hint of sweetness. There is a moderate amount of funkiness and some tartness in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness and just a touch of dryness.

O: Enjoyable because of the sourness/tartness and the very natural flavors/aromas of the blueberries. Easy to drink and refreshing on a hot summer day.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazed purple ish pink color, fuchsia to be precise. Smell of blueberries and cleaning product. In the taste, lemon and blueberry flavors dance in a moderate tartness. Light wheat, some citrus and little alcohol heat. Light bodied feel with a medium level of carbonation.
Overall, this was a nice little blueberry brew. Nice flavor.

Bottle to Ommegang flute

A: it looks amber to brown from the outside, but from the top you can definitely see some blue/purple color with a tan head that leaves a thick lacing. It is semi transparent and pretty cloudy with a few floaters in there.

S: Ok so you can definitely smell the blueberries in there but there isn't much strength there or much else for that matter. However there are some hints of oak and a tiny bit of funk in the background.

T: Nice tart taste that is not too strong though its there, but it is not sour at all so there is that to start. However with that being said, there is definitely a lot of blueberry taste in there and you can definitely taste the oak in the finish, but it seems like it should have stayed in there longer. The blueberry really comes out in the finish as it tastes like fresh blueberry juice.

M: It is nice light and refreshing which is what I would normally expect from a blueberry ale but its a little off as this is aged and "sour" (way more of a fruit beer if you ask me). It is smooth and really drinkable plus there is a light carbonation. Not bad just seems off style to me.

O: I like this beer, but it is a lot more a fruit beer then an aged sour it has a lot of blueberry flavor and is a nice refreshing/easy to drink. That being said there really isn't anything special out of this beer and maybe I'm let down because I expected something more, but if you like blueberry or fruit beer this one is worth a try but for what I paid for it wasn't worth it.
