Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Blue Session. Smells like blueberry yogurt, jam and fruit jellies. Taste has a really good tart/sweet balance with preserved fruit juice flavor, jam and some spices on the finish.

Awesome beer, really does taste and smell like those little Hostess blueberry muffins, although maybe not as intense on the taste. I think actually what hurts it in that aspect is the carbonation, there's just too much. If they made this as a wheat beer instead of a wild ale with less carb, I think it would blow my mind.

On draft. Poured bright maraschino cherries color with no sediment. No foamy head when served. The smell truly is like blueberry muffins! There is the malty bread and heavy notes of really blueberries. Unfortunately the taste didn’t bring blueberry muffins to mind. It had mild acidity and was prominently sweet with blueberries and tart red raspberries and a slight malt. Little yoghurt giving a berry yoghurt essence. While the smell was heavy and decadent, the taste was more fruity and light. Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied. Very easy to consume without acidity making it harsh. Overall: I’d drink this for the smell, that in itself is a treat!

This beer is magnificent. It pours a rather ugly deep amber with a kiss of pink, opaque with a thin white bubbly head with little lacing.

It smells like a straight up freshly baked Blueberry Muffin. No joke, that's it.

It tastes the same with a mild amount of acidity. Simply sublime.

Feel is a tad thin, but great balance of sweet and sour, and not at all out if place anywhere in the spectrum.

Overall, this is as close to a perfectly designed and carried out beer as I can imagine. It's wonderful and I hope anyone who's a fan of blueberry, muffins, sour, or beer gets a shot at this. Cheers!

Boise Beer Crew weekend in Portland. Taster at Great Notion. Pinkish hue, soft airy head. Smells and tastes like a blueberry muffin. Not too much else going on.

The nose on this beer is just... amazing. It smelled just like blueberry muffin or scone.

Very well executed. I am glad they were filling crowlers of this as well.

Very interesting beer. It does actually smell like fresh blueberry muffins. Color is purpleish red (I'm color blind). Rocky white head that dissipates quickly.
Taste is blueberry, bread, and tartness. Pretty dynamic flavor actually. Wouldn't want to drink more than 1. I enjoy it a lot at first but becomes a little taxing.
certainly a worthy effort and creative beer.
