Disappointing considering the extreme cost of this beer. Pours honey with a pinkish white head, some cling lace. Astringent smell, like methiolade, not much else. Taste is sour, blueberry, gamy, barny, and a little malty at the finish. Mouth feel is medium, good carb, balance is all over the place. Overall, not my favorite and probably wouldn't try again.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks to Dope for this bottle.
Pours a lovely light purple color with a pinkish bead, definitely a lot of blueberries in this.
Smell is very authentic blueberries and a somewhat sharp metallic scent that I'm guessing is brett.
Taste is yummy blueberries, a somewhat sharp brett flavor, fairly tart fruit but not really sour or acidic.
Great mouthfeel, well carbonated and very creamy feel.
Good beer, very authentic fruit flavors, not quite a sour but not exactly a fruit beer either.

Pour is reddish purple with a thin head and purple tint. Nose is heavy blueberry, faint raspberry, and some oak and light vanilla. Taste is a bit cough syrupy blueberry, assertive oak presence, light mint in back. Touch of tartness. Lighter body, heavily carbonated, fairly dry finish. Simple, not super bright, ok.
