Nice tarty sour with tons of blueberry freshness. The bluish purple color screams tart from the second you lay eyes on this beer. For those tart lovers, don't miss this one.

Gift from a bartender at nightshift, enjoyed with friends

Appearance: Beautiful purplish-blue with matching head. Wine-esque look after about 30 seconds. Glowing.

Smell: True nostalgia. Bright Maine blueberries, ripe as if they were from the precipice trail in Acadia. Slight tart/vinegar note. Truly a treat for those that have enjoyed Maine blueberries.

Taste: Follows the nose, but not as bright. More earthy, stalk and soil notes. Stronger acidity than anticipated. Phenomenal contrast of taste and smell.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, some residual body. Probably would prefer a lighter feel.

Overall: Refreshing beer in multiple senses. Do not know who else brews anything similar, or would as well with the task

This is probably my favorite version of a Berliner Weiss. The blueberries and cinnamon both really come out. Despite the sour, this is a very drinkable beer.
