A: Minimal head on muddy brown body with maroon hues. Very nice lacing.

S: Strawberry, blueberry, candy sugar, and sour cherry. Aroma of red wine fills the nose.

T: For the style of beer, it's not very tart due to the wine barrel aging.
Flavors of sour cherry, grapes, oak, and of course, wine.

M: light to medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: I like this beer a lot. It's drinkable, refreshing & tasty. Awesome label, too.

First had: bottle from a local PA shop

Poured into an 8oz. Torst glass. Slightly cloudy orange-lavender color, with a full, fluffy white head that receded to a thin layer of bubbles, leaving a few random dots of lacing on the glass; Champagne-like carbonation. Aroma of crackery wheat malts, light scent of freshly picked blueberries, lacto, pithy funk. Nice tartness in the taste that really hits the comfortable middle ground between "not tart enough" and "too tart." So, it's obvious but not puckering. Blueberry skin--not juicy or overpowering at all--lemony pith, toasted wheat, hints of yogurt and/or cheese rind. Light-medium body, great drinkability. Overall very nice.

This beer was brewed twice although they are different. One batch at Evil Twin and a second batch in collaboration with Westbrook.

No head really on a murky pink, really grapefruit meat colored body. No lacing. Aroma is of musty strawberry, blueberry and lemon citrus. The nose is strong and tart overall. Flavor is as tart as you would expect for the style with more of what was encountered in the aroma with citrus, blueberry and strawberry on a wheat base. Perfect degree of tartness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Flavorful beer, I am very interested in trying the original Evil Twin version for comparison.

S - Lots of blueberries, a touch of barrel.

T - Tart blueberries, I am dialed in!

D - Good carbonaiton with a very light body.

O - Lots of blueberries, a touch of barrel and tartness. A god awful label.

22 oz bomber into a HF wine glass. Pours a really pretty purple tinged orange body with a fingers worth of bubbly foam. Moderate lacing I suppose.

S - The nose on this is just unreal. All the classic berliner stuff is here. Bread and crackers, light funk, sour lemon and pineapple juice...and then comes the most heavenly blast of blueberry jam. Sweet and sugary to balance out the tartness. Fresh and in your face, this is some serious blueberry awesomeness. Swirling it just seems to make it come off stronger.

T - Wheat, light funk and lactic acid, lemon juice, a few squeezed blueberries...swallow, annnd...it's gone. This taste like a standard old berliner that a few lone blueberries fell into by mistake. The fruit is almost non-existent. No real lingering flavors save for a dry crackery malt finish. Still tasty in it's own right, but a huge let down compared to that nose. Mouth feel is medium bodied and well carbonated, just insanely easy to drink. This should have been sold in growler format.

O - I love the label, the appearance, and the nose...but the blueberries are severely lacking in the taste. Even still, it's all kind of delicious and drinkable. So pumped I was able to find this on a shelf.
