Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice slightly hazy dark ruby purple hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of big sweet berries, generic purple red berries. Light acidity.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with more generic berries, good acidity and nice fruity notes.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, but there was a rather big flemmy note.

O - Overall this was a rather solid Frucht. The blueberry is generic, however, it is rather pleasant.

Split with rudzud
Some eruption, a bit of fizzy head fades almost instantly, a little lacing, ruby red murky slight dark reddish color

Nose fair berry but not quite sure it's blueberry, generic berry, flemmy tart funk and acidity, flemmy darker malts and candy sweet thing, almost raspberry boisenberry thing, little funk

Taste mild sweet malt, tart berry again generic purple berry, blueberry, boisenberry, tart mild bitter berry and seed, juicy tart berry beer, a little sour, mild flemmy acidicy funky beer, fair acidity all over, bitter tannic seed and tartness lingering on the finish.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb, a bit flemmy sour funk

Overall not bad, nice berry, not quite straight blueberry but decent generic berry,

Pours a gorgeous blue-tinted amber color with a nice wheat haze and a fat finger of off-white head. Quickly dissipates into a thin crown.

Soft tart blueberry and wheat notes in the nose.

Nice blueberry tartness and sourness -- much less bracing than the apricot version I opened recently. Lightly puckering with subtle berry flavor lingering in the aftertaste. Just a hint of the oak barrel.

Soft, fuzzy feel.

This is a great beer. I love how the wheat shows itself in the look, smell, taste and feel.

750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery's Society. Bottled 7/5/16. Served in a Bruery snifter.

A hearty but far from vigorous pour creates quite a gusher. The glass fills a deep, nearly opaque purple with three full fingers of lilac froth on top. That head fades quickly, with neither retention nor lace.

The aroma is a bit familiar now. Soured wheat, funky wet wood and vague fruit pulp. The blueberries are a bit more apparent as this warms but still rather distant.

They might not have been too obvious in the nose but puckeringly tart blueberries kick off the flavor. The base of soured wheat, wet oak, vague vanilla, earth and some fruit skins rounds it out.

Light body with restrained carbonation. That dominant sour blueberry lingers in the finish along with some earthen and oaky funk.

Not sure what it is but even though I really like blueberries this Frucht release wasn't quite on the same level as the previous ones I've tried. Nevertheless this is not at all bad and The Bruery has another solid oak aged Berliner.
