from the notes and a bottle shared among friends.
A - a noticeable bluish/purple tinge to this fairly flat looking beer.
S - some sour, grassy, horsey smells with a touch of fruit.
T - mild tartness, mild fruit, mild everything.
M - low carbonation and lacking consistency.
D - an Ok taster but not a repeat.

The beer is cloudy red/pink, a light pink head recedes quickly, leaves no lacing.

The smell is complex, earth, horse, stable, sour milk sweet berries.

The taste does not deliver, some sourness, lemon, blueberries and a metallic note.

Medium carbonation, somewhat fizzy.

This was hard to decide on, the smell was really intriguing, but taste more mediocre. An bit hard to imaging when it will be really good to drink.

This blueberry lambic was the winning beer in the Swedish home brewers’ competition of 2006.

The colour is red-purple, the liquid clear. The low purple head sinks down quickly.

The smell is sweet-sour, fruity and a little dry. It got some notes of fragranced soap/washing powder.

The taste is quite strong; lots of sour earthy chemical iodine notes. It develops with fruity flavours of berries. Low bodied. Some dry minerals. Hints of blueberries in the finish. I hade expected a little more complexity.

The carbonation is rather weak for the style. Small fresh bubbles.

A very interesting concept that might have gained of some more berries.
