Thanks to callmemickey for sharing.

Pours a hazy pink grapefruit color with a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind.

Strong cinnamon component in the nose but I'm not picking up much blueberry. Slightly solvent/acetic but not too harsh with some citrus acidity, sourdough bread and wheat character. Truer to style than the other two I've tried(Somer and Ever). Some darker fruit comes out as it warms but the aroma is still dominated by spice and citrus.

Tart and puckering with strong sour acidity and slight acetone character. Not too harsh or solvent like though. Spicy cinnamon adds a nice touch to the bread/yeast, wheat and acidic flavors . Slight mineral quality in the finish but again, I'm not picking up much blueberry. A bit one dimensional but the cinnamon is a nice touch and a unique take on the style. Slightly harsh but decently drinkable.
