Watermelon in color. Nose is a bit sour smelling. Taste is the saving grace. Good fruit beer that has a lot of carbonation and slight blueberry taste.

The beer pours out a hazy light purple/dark pink color, with 1 finger of light pink head-------------- the aromas are of funky over ripe fruit, tart blue berry, wheat bread, lemon and salt----------- the flavors are of tart lemon, wheat bread, salinity, lesser blueberry, and some funky over ripe fruit, the beer has a thin mouthfeel with a dry acidic finish--------------- overall this beer was good wish I picked up on more of the blueberry and had lesser of the funky over ripe fruit, it was still tasty and refreshing though

This is a really nice Gose. I didn't get any blueberry, but it's still quite tasty. $14 is asking a lot for a 4 pack of 12oz cans, but whatever, it's Evil Twin, what do you expect

Umm, hmmmm, honestly, it taste like Coors Light Blueberry - and you know what? Raul ain’t mad about that! It has that bland, coors light flavor and body with a hint of blueberry. That’s it, that’s all Raul got. Like his first quickie with his baby mama, Raul is in and gone!

Poured from 12oz can into 20oz tulip. No observable canning date.

Look: Pours pink in color, with no head. Leaves no traces of lacing on glass either. Really pretty color, with a dark pink, light purple/red in color.

Smell: Tart smelling, with blueberry actually noticeable on the smell. I will say, that had I not known it was made with blueberry, it might have been difficult to pinpoint what fruit ,but with the knowledge that it is in fact brewed with blueberry, I can definitely pick that up. I also smell strawberry, cranberry, apple, apricot, lemon, lime and tangerine on the nose. Salty aspect is on the nose as well.

Taste: Really intriguing and fantastic taste. More tart than sour, with a prominent natural blueberry taste. Saltiness is evident, but I enjoy it. I get a wheat-bread flavor as well on the beer, as well as a lemon profile. Also slight hints that resemble that of a white wine or champagne, as well as light floral tones. Really liking the taste.

Overall: This was a pleasant surprise. I really admire the natural blueberry smell and taste that this beer accomplishes. A well done offering by Evil Twin, and worthy of a try! Cheers!

this latest brew from evil twin is a good one, lavender or rose colored, soft pinkish purple from the can with a fizzy soda sort of head and even some dark blue chunks that looks like real blueberry remains in here at the end, pretty cool. the aroma is nice, tangy real blueberry and less sourness than i ever got in the apricot one. the faintest cheesiness to the lacto here, but cleaner than other sours ive had from them of late, and complimentary to the earthy blueberry, which smells natural to me here. oddly desserty too, slightly cooked, trace vanilla. the flavor is ice, quenching at first when its ice cold with a really pronounced natural blueberry character, which is hard to get in a beer and they have done it well here. i really like the tang on it, not too acidic to be really drinkable but puckery enough to make it refreshing like a lemonade. lots of character to the sour profile too, and complimentary to the fruit. high carbonation has it drinking like a soda pop, but some pleasantly round wheaty body keeps it feeling full enough to be beer. nice use of the blueberry, this is really flavorful, and if you like the style, you will like this beer. less salt than a lot of these have, but it seems unneeded to me with the flavorful fruit and yeast. nice for spring!

12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours moderate hazy reddish pink/purple color with a 1-2 finger dense light pink head with good retention that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, blueberries, salt/spice, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, blueberries, salt/spice, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness and tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/acidic/tangy, fairly saline, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent gose. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, blueberries, salt/spice, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Great balance between Lacto, fruit, salt, and pale/wheat malts; no overly salty or lactic. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Bringing the fruitiness of lambic to the sour wheat flavor of gose, the brewers at Evil Twin use this tangy opportunity to teach us a few lessons. It's kinda like kindergarden for adults.

B is for Blueberry pours onto the senses with a pale mauve haze ahead of a scent of red sangria, berries and a tingle of acidity. Its taste of dark berries, grape and apple weave into a short malty sweetness of saltwater taffy and sourdough. Through it all, the beer's deep pink appearance is bubbly, billowing and foamy for a racy introduction

Fruit juices stretches across the middle palate with a fleeting sweetness and a sharp fruitiness that spans lemon, lime, crabapple, gooseberry, cranberry and blueberry. Dry and earthy, the blueberries release hints of wine, plum and cider all seeming of the musty vinous spice, the ale closes with a light peppery dryness and a return of musty wheat and sourdough to a satisfying end.

Medium light in body, the beer lingers with the juiciness of blueberry and citrus, but only briefly. Crisp, clean and utterly refreshing, the aftertaste is short but expels an afterthought of blueberry cobbler with dry rose wine and sparkling dark cider.
