Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt, grain, and slight blueberry aromas. Taste is much the same with sour and tart grain and subdued blueberry flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but the blueberry presence in this one is fairly subtle.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very pretty red body. Medium white head.

Smell - There's that classic de Garde yeast. Strong yeast. Some fruitiness. Lots of acidity.

Taste - Man it's sour. Seltzer like flavor. Lemon and lime and aciditity. A little bit of blueberry flavor in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Very light. High carbonated.

Overall - Overwhelmingly sour without the flavor to back it up.
