I've never had ann or mimosa, but this might be Mr. Hill's best beer. I don't want to like it as much as I do. I can also see this aging quite well. Brought comparisons to LP Kriek (which we had about 45 minutes prior). Hate on the man who brewed it all you want, this beer is the real deal.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a snifter. Reviewed from notes from last night.

Appearance: Pours a deep raspberry/maroon color and leaves a finger of white head that fades to a rim around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Nice funky blueberry, grassy funk, nice mild sour aroma. Pleasant wine-y influence as well.

Taste: Matches the smell quite well - balanced funky blueberry, grassy funk, nice dry wine-y finish. Very well balanced and drinkable.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly creamy body. Slightly dry finish.

Overall: This is a great blueberry beer - the blueberry flavor matches the fruit not the artificial blueberry stuff. Nice and mild, with the right amount of funk and sour.

A lovely, dark blueberry colour with hints of ruby shining through.

Mostly oak and sour farm house must on the nose, but with definite notes of blueberry and a tiny bit of wheat.

Sour funk and oak lead through a wonderful balance of sweet blueberry and wheat.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Nice purple body. Small pinkish white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Tart blueberry. Kinda yogurty. White wine. Some oak.

Taste - Blueberry is really nice here. Still has a yogurty sourness. Oak. Lightly funky and woody finish.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Woody and well carbonated.

Overall - Excellent. The blueberry character is impressive.

Poured from the bottle into a HF tasting glass.

Appeared a dark purple color with a small, off-white head.

Smelled of fresh blueberries, some tartness, a bit of sparkling wine.

Taste is delicious- fresh blueberries, solid tartness, finishes dry. Blueberry is present but not overpowering. Delicious!

Mouthfeel is light and quite bubbly.

Overall this was a special treat, one that I am thankful to get to try. Awesome!
