On-tap at Bootlegger's,

A: Pours a pinkish red/magenta/mauve with a light fizzy head.

S: Quite a direct fruit nose which I liked, blueberries and acid.

T: Lactic acid with a cherry and blueberry mix. As I've been finding out trying blueberry sours, the flavour of the fruit is not as prominent as ales brewed with alternate types of fruit.

M: Moderate acid, firm spritzy carbonation.

D: This is nice, I wanted a little more out of the fruit character, but I liked it in the end.

On-tap at Bootlegger's

A: The pour is a slightly cloudy light purple color with some floating pieces of fruit in it. The head is initially like pink but dies down quickly.

S: The fruit character is present, but not necessarily blueberry in nature. There's a bit of funk and a solid tartness to the nose.

T: The blueberry is again mild, and I might not necessarily pick it out if I wasn't aware of the fact that it was a blueberry sour. That said, there is a pleasant fruitiness and a good dry and acidic quality to the beer.

M: The body is on the lighter side with a full carbonation that pricks the tongue and leaves a nice dry finish.

D: A pretty good sour beer that's easily just as good as a blueberry beer from a brewery on the opposite end of the country.
