3.5/5 rDev -4.4%
Pours an orange amber with a slight reddish tint. Little to no head with no retention.
Smells of candied blueberries and black raspberries. Slightly sour.
Sour fruit taste, kinda has a sweet, candied malt that balances out the sour flavor of the fruit. Overall, not bad, but not something I rave about. Feels like two beers poured together.
Light, crisp and a sour.
Not bad if you don't mind the sour fruit, but for me, it's quite a bit too much.
This beer feels a little too much like two beers in one. Good flavors but just not quite what I was looking for.

3.5/5 rDev -4.4%
Appearance: Off white head, lots of it. A very carbonated looking dark red brew.
Smell: More raspberry than blueberry. Sort of sweet smelling with just a tad bit of fruit and malt. Very mild.
Taste: Extremely mild tasting in flavor and ABV. I couldnt tell at all it was 11%. Malty with just a touch of sweet fruit. Not like any other blueberry or fruit beers that are overpowering and sickeningly sweet. This is actually drinkable. Light and not much in the way of aftertaste. A little tart at the end.
Overall a good balanced fruit beer. Just enough fruit to know what you are drinking, good masking of alcohol, easy to drink and a good strong beer for summer. I dont think I could make this a regular but maybe this should be on a rotating every other year schedule.
