L: Poured from a can to a snifter glass. Had a ruby red color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, off white head that lasted a below average amount of time. Not much lacing.

S: A good aroma of blueberries, citrus, Belgian yeast, and a few other fruits.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of Belgian-style yeast / funk (present throughout), a good shot of blueberries, light citrus notes (lemon, in particular), some dark fruit, and melon. A much more interesting flavor than I expected. The blueberries are given a serious boost from the other fruit elements. Well done.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a well made wild ale - very sweet and likable. Drinkable.

From the bottom of the can, overlapping the rim, in small yellow text: "13082TH1BBBOYFRIEND 18106 171 18"

Appearance: The body of the beer is an opaque purple-red color that looks like beet juice. It has a short purple-pink head that looks frothy and slowly fades out.

Aroma: It smells like old fruit with this meaty yeast aroma. It smells a bit like popcorn.

Taste: It's tart up front with a very fruit-forward flavor. It tastes a bit like a blend of fruit juices including grape, blueberry, and pomegranate.

Mouthfeel: It has a pronounced tartness which tapers off to the back of the mouth where the beer ends very dry. The body feels a bit thick in the middle.

Overall: The aroma of the beer was a turn-off but it has a good fruit flavor which is enjoyable. I would most likely pass on it again given the aroma but at least the flavor makes the beer worthwhile.

12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but was just released. Pours moderately hazy red/purple/pinkish orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy/lightly tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon, peach, plum, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape, citrus zest, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, blueberries, lemon zest, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of juicy/lightly tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon, peach, plum, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape, citrus zest, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness and fruit tang on the finish. Lingering notes of juicy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon, peach, plum, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape, citrus zest, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, blueberries, lemon zest, and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with zero puckering flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from tartness and tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly acidic/tangy/tannic mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a very nice fruited sour ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, blueberries, lemon zest, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mellowly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Not overly sweet or tart either way. Nicely jammy berries; with balanced lemon zest, Lacto, and bready malts. A very enjoyable, and well made offering for a sweeter sour. Nice summer beer.
