375ml bottle. Thanks JR. Poured into a mini-snifter 8/9/2014.

A- Darker brown-reddish body, half finger white head with fair retention, not much lacing.

S- Wow. Smells like a ton of lacto, just like every other Side Project beer I've had; with the exception of a nice touch of blueberries. Really, really good stuff considering that blueberry is a subtle fruit. It's not Blueberry Flora, though, but I can't complain.

F- More tart than fruity; some maltiness mixed in with a very lactic sourness with a nice parotid-shivering vinegar finish that carries through. It's got a lot of shock value, I'll tell ya that much. More of the blueberry comes across here vs Blueberry Flora, though.

M- Medium in body, well carbonated and substantial. Finish is that pleasantly acidic salivary gland killer.

O- Very good, I'm not sure its worth what it trades for, but I'm very glad to have tried this one. Very good stuff, but I'm starting to get the sense that Side Project has that particular lacto flavour in all of their beers so far.
