Light colored pour until the blueberries fall out, then it turns to a burnt orange color. And yes I said blueberries fell out. Nice foamy off-white head of 1/2 finger.

Aromas of cracker, blueberry tannins, some basic lactic acid and Berliner aromas - lime, stone, blueberry cereal.

Flavor is watery to start, and then some polite blueberry and limestone come in, followed by blueberry puff cereal and basic grains. White wine vinegar, lemon juice, white bread, lactic sourness, hard water.

Feel is spot on for a Berliner, plenty carbonated and a slight tannin-y dry finish.

Overall, pretty decent. I'd have it again. Nice mild blueberry notes on top of a basic layer of solid Berliner.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a very thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains esters, blueberries, wheat and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a very strong bite of sourness followed by flavors of blueberries and esters. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is very mild as you would expect and there is not much balance. The after-taste is slightly sour.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, does not go down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely better blueberry sour beers than this one.

22 oz bottle crafted at Westbrook Brewing in SC.
Pours slightly hazy, with just a suggestion of blue in the whit cap. Lots of visible carbonation for several minutes.
Aroma: some sweet caramel and blueberry mix with unattractive funk.
Flavor: moderately high tartness; lightly funky; mildly fruity with less prominent blueberry than hoped for.

Medium-light body with crisp, medium-high carbonation.

Overall: a bold, lightly funky version of the style.

Peach colored with no head.

Aromas of blueberry and peach and flavors of blueberry and peach as well, maybe being on the sour end of the spectrum alters the blueberry, but at times the unintended peach flavor seems to dominate the blueberry.

A little tangy but a very smooth, wine-like texture.

22oz bottle - maybe it's just me, but what the hell is this label talking about?

This beer pours a clear, pale salmon amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and rather fizzy off-white head, which leaves absolutely nothing in the way of lace near the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of musty dark berry fruit, a slightly sour pale graininess, edgy wheat cereal, a surprisingly tame white cheesy funk, a touch of underripe lemon zest, and some strange earthy bittering astringencies. The taste is sharp white wine vinegar, muddled and thinned out dark fruit (still not particularly blueberry-like), salted wheat bread, lemon juice, mineral water, a waning earthy funkiness, and more plainly overwhelmed or understaffed hop bitterness.

The carbonation is adequate for the job at hand, what with its generic frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and kind of thin on the ground in its attempt at any sort of smoothness. It finishes dry, still sour in an indistinctly fruity manner, and wanly grainy.

Overall, not a bad sour ale, the predominance of fruity sour over funky sour making me cotton to this one a whole lot more than I would have otherwise. However, the purported blueberry overdose totally fails to materialize at any point in this offering, so I guess that idea can sink back into the strange pop-culture, inside joke marketing dump going on here.

On tap at Salvage BBQ in Portland, Maine.

Pours hazy, fizzy, and off-red. Like pressed berries.

Smells very tart and mildly fruity: lemon and under-ripe blueberries.

Tastes very fizzy and tart and much fruitier than the aroma indicated. Blueberries dominate nicely throughout. Starts super sour, with nodes of bacteria like an Atomic Warhead candy, but then it smooths out quickly and becomes basically sweet berry juice.

Intense--definitely a sipper--but pulled off pretty well.
