Very light colored beer, pleasantly fruity, the aroma does not give away the depth of flavor this beer puts out. Much more tart than I expected, very pleasant surprise.

A- Pinkish orange, like ruby red grapefruit juice
S- Slight tartness, some berry sweetness, but I would have guessed strawberry from the nose
T- Tart up front, a bit of berries, ends a bit watery
F- Good for style. Crisp, light carb
O- Decently drinkable, but not my favorite berlinner

"OMG! It's Justin Blabaer!!! If you have "Blabaer fever," then this is the only cure. We stuffed so many blueberries into this beer--it's going to make you shout, "Oh, Baby!" This is dedicated to AVSB. A&F YFFL - EW, MW, RWM, BE, SS, RC." Brewed in the style of a Berliner Weissbier with Blueberries added. A one-off collaboration between Evil Twin and Westbrook Brewing Co, available in 22 oz. bottles and on limited draft.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.

(Appearance) Pours a frothy crisp head of a champagne-white color over a moderately hazy golden amber body with ample, lively carbonation and thin, abundant sediment. Retention is average and lacing is light and spotty. 3.5

(Smell) Unmalted wheat, considerable funk and very potent fruit acidity. Little blueberry character, although some wild, underripe berry aromas are present. Potency is moderate. 3.5

(Taste) Tart and lactic sourness up front, tangy wildberry character with a simple pale wheat malt base. Finishes very acidic, moderately dry. The sourness is a bit more intense than the average Berliner Weissbier, which I enjoy. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) The texture is chalky, smooth, clean, medium dry. Carbonation is moderate, generating a mild frothiness and a medium crisp finish. Body is medium+ for the style, shy of medium overall. Balance is tart, funky and acidic over sweet. Alcohol presence is light and there are no off characters. 3.75

(Overall) Blueberry is a pretty difficult fruit to pull off when integrated in reasonable numbers, and as a whole the fruit character isn't very well integrated into this beer, but altogether this is an incredibly enjoyable and drinkable Berliner Weissbier with an enjoyable level of acidity and funk. 3.75

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - I am not sure how to describe the color. Purplish-yellow?

Smell - There is a distict sour nose, though not specific to any fruit.

Taste - The initial taste is an intensely sour blueberry that quickly falls flat and dies. Toward the back, it is a little tart. The wheat is largely masked.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is low for the style.

Overall -This really did not hit the mark for a Berliner or sour. After the initial taste, the beer is a disappointment.

Pours an amber to copper color with head that diminished very quickly with no visible lacing.

Aroma is sour, vinegar, blueberries, lac to bacteria, and white wine.

Taste is sour, acidic, white wine, with blueberries on the underside. Minor sweet finish.

Mouthful is light crisp and higher end carbonation.

Overall a very nice beer with minor drawback of the blueberries somewhat muted.

Smells like a sour, gross. But overall it was good. Mello and smooth! Wasn't over the top with the blueberry.
