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.

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.

On tap at Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen.

Pours an unclear reddish orange, with little in the way of foam.

Smells just like a blueberry muffn. Sweet and tart at the same time with hints of vanilla.

Taste is a delightful mix of sweet and sour, and again, tastes very much like a blueberry muffin. Plenty of berries, vanilla and a slight breadiness.

Mouthfeel is medium with bright carbonation.

Overall, a terrific sour that really takes the best parts of its influences and turns them into something special.

On tap at EBF multiple times.

This one pours a light yellow-ish color, with a small head and a bit of lacing.

Smells ridiculous- basically exactly like blueberry muffins, with a hint of acidity. It smells like muffins with particularly sour blueberries in them.

The taste is similarly amazing. The taste is more light blueberry sour with some muffin undertones, rather than the full insane muffin aroma. It's still delicious though, and it boggles my mind how they made it work. It's mildly acidic, nothing overwhelming.

This is light bodied, crisp and clean tasting, with a soft level of carbonation.

This beer is absolutely insane. Great Notion are clearly a bunch of wizards.

Well...as described, exactly. It is amazing how the aroma on this brew PERFECTLY matches that of a blueberry muffin. I was struggling with what style of beer it is, but wild/sour would make sense. Beyond the immaculate recreation of blueberry muffin aroma, the flavor is quite nice, lightly tart and moderately biscuity underneath. Well worth a try!
