Growler shared as part of a mutual tasting arrangement. Thanks Mike.

A: Pours a clear blood orange color, leaning towards burnt orange. Its clarity is quite stunning, actually; it's captivating to watch the bubbles rise up the glass. It's capped by a light pink head, 1 finger in thickness. Retention is short, with temporary washes of lace during sips.

S: Fresh blueberry, pilsner malt, a touch of corn. Light, leafy hops and a small earthiness.

T: Pilsner malt. Light, leafy hop presence with substantial earthiness that pulls into an astringent, drying finish. There is a spike of blueberries near the finish, with some white corn (maize) in the aftertaste.

M: Sweet at first, with a lightly drying / astringent finish. I want to say I'm tasting tart, tannic (blueberry skins) flavors in the aftertaste in addition to the corn. It's certainly interesting.

D: Light, good, balanced. I didn't want more than a single tulip of it, though. I suspect the blueberry would have gotten kind of bothersome after a while. (1,024 characters)
