Notes / Commercial Description:
Like all great love, the love of a sour blueberry is a lifelong exploration of spectrum ends: sometimes reveled, at times ignored, and regularly re-engaged the next summer when paths happen to cross. As farming and fictitious flavors progress in the modern age, the joy of that one special berry, among those couple sours scattered through a quart of otherwise sweet-ish fruit, is far less dependable and all the more poignant. In Tangled Up, we take a wheated base to a decently sour point and layer sweet blueberry, till it sits comfortably on both sides of the teeter-totter of this metaphor. Drink Tangled Up, and explore each point of view.

Pours a very light fog copper with a finger of khaki foam. More head is attainable, but retention is poor regardless. Aroma is blueberry - big, with lactic sour bite and crusty biscuity, toasty malts. Flavor profile is big blueberry, with crusty, biscuity, bready, nutty malts. It has a big lactic bite in the back on the palate, and then lets blueberry notes linger on the tongue for a while. Mouth feel is effervescent, with a medium thickness. Overall, big blueberry, but a tasty sour.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Pours an amber color. Fairly clear. The head is one finger, slightly off white, frothy, and has decent retention. No lacing on the glass.
The nose is really nice and tart blueberry. The tartness lingers in my nose.
Taste - It's actually mellow for a second, then the tartness kicks in. After it gets almost smooth and a slight sweetness on the backside.
The body is actually quite light, but not watery at all. No real alcohol feel in spite of it being a 7% beer.
Damn fun drinking and delicious sour. One slight problem with it, in a way, it's almost too easy to drink. I could easily pound these on a hot day, and get into trouble fast. I'd enjoy it though.

Sour done well, Buy this. Thrilled to be its first review
a) Pours a berry tinged inky golden body that sprouts and supports a decent finger of head and lasting lace (at brewer).
s) Blueberry, yes, but mainly a lively vein of tart marbling your senses.
t) Sour coming dominant. A tinge / whiff of blue berry, green fruit, yeast, pickle.
f) complex, intensely sour as you'd like it to be, no halfway here.
o) Buy this and share the sour as a 1-of-a-kind delight.
