Good blueberry, not much crumble. Mild flavor profile, with low level tartness. Spiced vanilla comes through nicely on the nose, just wanted more on the palate. Crushable, but I hoped for more.

"Soured ale brewed with blueberries, brown sugar, vanilla, & spices." 5.6% ABV.

Delivers on its premise, yielding flavours of all its ingredients. Balanced and cohesive with a gestalt flavour profile. '

One I'll have to revisit in finer grain in future...easily one of the best beers brewed in Mississippi.

B / GOOD

Pours a nice ruby red/purple. Not a ton of head. Typical for a sour.
Nose is sweet blueberry,
Lemony acidity, cracker.
Definitely has notes of blueberry pie. Medium light acidity. Blueberry, graham cracker, vanilla.

Rather turbid red brown color similar to unfiltered cherry juice sold at a Farmer's Market.

Aroma of blueberries, vanilla and spices.

Taste on entry is mildly sour sharpness quickly balanced by the blueberry, vanilla and spice. Spicy aspects remain in the background with the vanilla yet still maintain a presence. The vanilla is more of a balancing fulcrum between the sharp berry sourness and the rest. It's balanced and relatively complex with all the flavors working as a team.

Texturally it's a somewhat thin body bordering on medium.

As a sour berry cinnamony spicy thing it actually works rather well. Sour but not too much, berry but not over berry and the cinnamon/spices balance out things nicely. I can see this being a crowd pleaser on our sunny beaches.
