Bottle: Poured a light purple/yellowish color ale with a nice large bubbly head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of tart and funky ester with light berry notes is quite pleasant and complex. Taste is also dominated by tart and funky notes with some light blueberry notes. Light oak notes are also noticeable with light and well balanced acidity. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Better than expected with quite a bit of complexity and good drinkability.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky pale reddish body. Decent off-white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Very bretty. Blueberry in the back of some grainy malts, but the fruit isn't very intense.

Taste - Even brettier, despite that that seemed impossible. Sweet blueberry juice. Earthy brett. Slightly tangy, at best.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated, but medium heavy body.

Overall - More sweet than sour. The blueberry is nice.
