Very reddish hue on the pour. Pink head. Lots of bugs on the nose. Very biting flavor profile. Probably too much so. Not at all rounded. Beyond sour, it's tart and really grabs the mouth and yanks at every taste bud you have. If you don't like sour beers, you certainly will not appreciate this at all.

Really tart, dry finish with a little funk that becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Tasty, but I found myself wanting more fruit, less sour.

Won in Upland sour raffle. Split with my buddy who took the drive. Pours and drinks like a very tart lambic, but neither one of us really picked up much if any blueberry. Still very enjoyable.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 10/30/2013.

Appearance - Looks like juice. Murky purple. No head.

Smell - Smells like it's gonna be sour. Sharp acidity. Wood. Some blueberry, but it's not very strong and not very distinct.

Taste - Strong berry flavor. Really sour. Lemon sourness. Berry flavor comes back as its own sour and oaky flavor in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Way too sour for me. Medium light body and medium low carbonation.

Overall - It's a flavorful beer, but overly sour.
