Aged 14 months and aged gracefully. Fantastically delicious with sourness. Couldn't detect much blueberry but its there. Slow sipper for how sour it is yet one of the best sours I ever had.

A - Pours a beautiful hazy ruby red with a one finger fizzy white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving some nice soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is blueberries, lemon peel, funky yeast and light biscuity malts.

T - The taste starts out with a nice amount of sweet blueberries followed by green apple, lemon, funky yeast and some biscuity malts.

M - Light body with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with a nice dry finish.

O - An solid Berliner Weiss from Odd Side. The balance off sweet and tart is excellent. Fun beer.

I picked up a bottle of Oddside's Joker Of Tarts for $ 8.39 at The Lager Mill. I'm interested to try this new sours from Oddsides and I thought I would start off with the Joker, so lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a teku.

A- The label looks nice, it goes well with the name and it's eye catching. It poured a dark red color that took on more of a ruby color when held to the light with a finger and half worth of bubbly head that had a pink hue to it and it left a little bit of patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the funky yeast being the first to show up and it imparts a noticeable amount of funkiness which is a little on the light side. Up next comes the blueberries which a noticeable blueberry aroma and it works well with the funk yeast, it's a little juicy and it shows up just enough. Up next comes the malts which impart a slight grainy aroma with some bready and doughy aromas showing up in the background. This beer has a good aroma, it's just as advertised.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma, but a little lighter and it starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the blueberries being the first to show up this and it shows up the same amount imparting the same aspects, but it isn't juice and it's followed by a slightly lighter amount of tartness with the funky yeast yeast showing up towards the end and they linger into the aftertaste with some bready, doughy and grainy flavors with a little bit of blueberry in the that aftertaste.This is a pretty nice tasting beer, but I wish it had more sourness and a little more blueberry flavors.

M- Fairly smooth, not too crisp, on the lighter side of being medium bodied with a lighter amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and a solid example of the style, it wasn't great, but it had pretty much all the flavors and aromas that it should have and nothing seemed out of place. This beer had nice drinkability, I think one glass one would be the perfect amount for me. What I like the most about this beer is that it's true to style and it's just as advertised. What I like the least about this beer is that the blueberries and sourness didn't show up a little more. I might buy this beer again, if I wanted a blueberry sour and I would recommend it, but I don't think it's a must try. All in all I liked this beer, but I didn't love it and I think with just a little more blueberries this could be a pretty good beer. It's not my favorite Oddside beer and it's above average for the style. Nice job guys, this is a solid blueberry sour.
