The head doesn't last long at all, but that's to be expected from a heavily fruited beer. Otherwise, 1 1/2 finger pink head and a rather thick looking purplish rose body.

Blueberries and tart blueberries/tart wheat with the barest hint of banana. You have to look for the banana, it's not obvious at all.

Taste generally follows the nose. Tart, but not overpoweringly so. A hint of sweetness.

A rather aggressive feel with all the added blueberries make it seem heavier than the usual wheat beer. Sticky and drying.

Overall this has to be one of my favorite sour beers. I'm generally not a fan.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Overall, pretty good for a sour style ale. I'm not a big fan of sours, but the use of blueberry was unique here. Not much to report other than a lot of pucker with a tart blueberry edge.
