Another great one from de Garde.

Jammy and funky not too sour and not too sweet, nice carbonation.

Overall this was pretty decent and would recommend.

I really do enjoy de garde beers. After having so many tho it is hard to keep them totally enjoyable. The sourness is off the charts and makes it very hard to finish a bottle on your own. Blu bu was a bit of a disappointment. I am a hige fan of blueberry everything and this tasted like all the other de gardes for me. . . . just sour

Not as much blueberry scent in the nose or body. Color is great, I'm just use to the body and finish being full of more fruit flavor. Do not age this beer! Drink soon before fruit flavor tapers off! "In my opinion"

Holy gorgeousness this is straight blueberry jam in a glass, hazy and needs to be on my pb&j sandwich. Aroma is Blu and berry - combined. it smells almost as good as it looks, tons of fruit and tons of tartness. Blueberry for sure but it's a light - just a bit of fruit tartness. Taste is a nice blend of tart blueberries and sweet fruit sugars. Feel is light and crisp, awesome carbonation - goes down a little too easily. Overall a really delicious beer that I would love to revisit again
