L: Pours lively hazy pink under a thin white foam collar with a light pink tint. S: Big blueberry nose with some light grains and a hint of rye spice in the background. T: Very lemony tart with big blueberry flavors weaving in and out as the beer moves over the tongue. The tartness of the fruit cries out for a big plate of fish and chips or some calamari. Has a tart, almost puckeringly dry finish. F: Light, tart, effervescent, refreshing. O: This is a very good summer beer that is much better than I expected.

Pours out a nice bluish/red with a small head that is white with a bluish red tint with little retention. Smell is immediately brettish with a little blueberry in the back. Smells decent but nothing out of the ballpark. Still smell nice. Taste is a little brettish funk with some definite blueberry taste and slightly acidic although not tart or anything. Mouthfeel is fairly nice from the carbonation as it is a tad thicker than I expected. Overall it has a little funk and a little blueberry but it has a little strange taste that I can't put my finger on. I love fruit beers more than others so I find this beer to be OK but really wasn't the beer I was hoping for. I'll update if it starts tasting nicer once it warms up a bit.

Pours a hazed purple ish pink color, fuchsia to be precise. Smell of blueberries and cleaning product. In the taste, lemon and blueberry flavors dance in a moderate tartness. Light wheat, some citrus and little alcohol heat. Light bodied feel with a medium level of carbonation.
Overall, this was a nice little blueberry brew. Nice flavor.

I never liked Cisco beers but still stupidly decided to give this one a try despite the crazy price tag of 24 bucks for the 750 bottle. I should have followed my instincts.

Bueatiful violet colored body.

Very fragrant. Lovely smell. Flowers and blueberries. Very nice. Some medicinal phenols that could pass for flowery.

Taste: Medicinal. WTF. big time phenols. Blueberry flavor comes through and is nice but the medicine flavor messes everything up. I understand there might be some funk in this beer but this is not a very good flavor in my opinion. However, as the beer warms up and you get through the bottle, the taste does grow on you somewhat. I did finished about 3/4 of the bottle although my initial reaction after first sip was immediate "drain pour".

Good in all aspects except for the taste. Big disappointment.

Disappointing considering the extreme cost of this beer. Pours honey with a pinkish white head, some cling lace. Astringent smell, like methiolade, not much else. Taste is sour, blueberry, gamy, barny, and a little malty at the finish. Mouth feel is medium, good carb, balance is all over the place. Overall, not my favorite and probably wouldn't try again.

750ml, winter '13
Riedel tulip

A: Pours a slightly hazy pinkish blueberry juice color. High carbonation. Bright white thin layer of head. Forms a collar around edges. Slight layering.

S: Light on the sourness, but its there. Getting a good amount of blueberry juice character. Some oak notes.

T: Not quite as tart/sour as I was expecting. You go get a slight bit up front, from fresh blueberry flavors. Then some off chalk character. It's very dry but not bone dry. Still some good sugar left over.

M: Light leading to medium bodied.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a hazy bluish purple in color (just what I would expect from a blueberry beer) with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some deep purple highlights. The beer has a finger tall purplish white fizzy head that reduces to a couple of medium sized patches of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal to light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of blueberries over lighter aromas of barnyard funk and sourness. Very light hints of oak.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of sourness not dissimilar to what you would find in a lambic along with moderate flavors of natural blueberries which lend just a hint of sweetness. There is a moderate amount of funkiness and some tartness in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness and just a touch of dryness.

O: Enjoyable because of the sourness/tartness and the very natural flavors/aromas of the blueberries. Easy to drink and refreshing on a hot summer day.
