Jan 2015 - purchased and consumed within days of NYC release.

At 21 bucks for a 375ml bottle seemed a bit nuts but ended up being well worth it. This was best blueberry sour I have had to this date.

The blueberries took center stage by far. It's hugely sour as well but the blueberry explosion comes out on top. The playful color contrast between head-body, the subtle oak notes, the medium tartness, the pleasantly dry finish, and the soft carbonation dance all left me with a huge smile on my face.

The Spontan series has been hit or miss with me, but the DoubleBlueberry was a huge hit (only topped by SpontanCherryFrederiksdal).

Had a 6oz pour on tap at Norey's in Newport, RI. Alongside a Cantillon Iris and OEC Albus, this beer may have been my favorite of the night. It was like drinking a glass of tart blueberry red wine. Easily the most blueberry flavor I've encountered in a beer. Very dry mouthfeel. Carbonation was light. It paired well with a tremendously sweet creme brulee.

While this isn't really a lambic beer and is much bigger than the typical lambic beer, this is exactly what I was expecting and hoping that Blabaer would be. Intense blueberries, touch of sweetness, lots of funky sour, nice dry finish, and very well hidden alcohol. Mikkeller blew me away on this one, I'm still shocked they beat Cantillon here at their own game!

Bought as a guest bottle at 18th Street back in April.

Pours a thick, dark purple that(with a vigorous pour) supplied 2" of dark raspberry head that faded into a thin ring of tiny bubbles around the glass. A quick twirl in the snifter revealed some dark sediment that I'm assuming was blueberry skin. The nose was light unripened blueberries and a strong lacto sour. None of the oak I was expecting, but it comes though slightly in the taste. BIG sour and good blueberry with a nice texture. Overall a good sour, but just a little too expensive to grab again.
