From notes on 6/21/15 Smells yummy. Tastes good. Mostly straw colored with a hue of blue. Fruity blueberry flavor. Tart. Missing a little something on the back end, but that’s ok.

Had on tap at the Pig & Fiddle. Pours hazy amber under a thin, white foam collar. Tart malt aromas. Tart on the palate with a touch of mustiness balanced by malt and alcohol.
