Look-Purple/Blue hue good carb.
Smell- Smells of blueberry and acidity
Taste- Sour Blueberries oh and did I mention sour?
Feel- Acidity mixed with decent carbonation = Prickly.

A solid Blueberry sour, More sour than Cascade or Almanac but also more blueberry flavor.

Pours a pure blueberry color. Aroma is sour and blueberries. Flavor is very sour but balanced by the fruit. Leaves a great lingering sourness. Overall I really like this. It's very sour but built in a solid base of blueberry.

Bottle shared by Mike yesterday, thanks man.

This pours a stunning looking purplish blue color, looks like they spared no expense with the fruit here. There's a very small head and no lacing.

Smells like old tart blueberry, with a nostril stinging sourness- lots of lacto on the nose.

I'd always heard that Upland sours were really, really sour, and this confirms it. It's pretty stinging, with a lemony Warhead feel. However, there is a lot of blueberry here- but I do wish there a little bit more underlying funk or complexity. There's not much of that to be found, and if it was, this'd be a lot better.

This is medium bodied, with a clean but strongly acidic mouthfeel.

Probably a bit to sour, but the blueberry is done nicely.
