Two full disclosures - 1. Prairie is one of my most favorite brewers; 2. Sours ae not my cup of tea...

The beer really looked good, a light red to dark pink color that was actually appealing to my eyes. The rest of it? Well, the smell was all pure sour, the mouthfeel was astringent, very much so, and the taste was just a sour flavoring of blueberry - just too much sour for me. This beer might very well keep me away from sours for quite some time...

12oz can. Bottom has stamp of 'CANNED ON 03/29/23'.
Murky, pomegranate red colored body. Brief pinkish head, but an island persists. No lacing.
Aroma is berry and lemon.
Taste is a dense layering of lemon and berry. The berry is strongly blueberry, but hints of strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry. Also a bit of rhubarb. Long aftertaste is mellow and continues the same layered blend.
Thicker than medium mouth feel. Supportive carbonation.
Expertly executed sour ale.

Pours a medium red color with a foamy head that disappears quickly. Slight aroma of blueberry. Taste is tart fruit juice; no hoppy bitterness at all. Crisp and dry.

It's a different fruit profile than most sours still a good one. I found this in a 12-pack with Rainbow Sherbet and Slush from Prairie Artisan Ales. I haven't ever found a combo for sours as good as these from PAA. As it is the most different from the citrusy sours I prefer this ranked 3rd of the 3 flavors, for me. If blueberries are a favorite of yours, I highly recommend it! PAA has some very high quality kettle sours. Give them a try if you can.

Look: looks like blueberry juice honestly
Smell: classic sour smell, I get the lemon zest
Taste: tart goodness with a pleasant blueberry/lemon aftertaste on the palate
Feel: medium body
Overall: nothin too complex, just a very well balanced blueberry lemon zest sour. It makes a promise that it delivers on

M: pretty carbonated, medium bodied, crisp, bubbly

O: overall, it's a good sour, slightly overcarbonated but just slightly.

Pours a hazy raspberry color with a very short lived head which disappears within seconds. Blueberries, raspberries, lemon and vanilla on the nose. Taste follows the nose with the tartness reasonably well balanced with the berries and vanilla. Solid brew.
