First of all this beer is very subtle for a sour. If you want something with a punch look elsewhere. Very nice milky opaque purple color. Not very sweet. This would be a good introduction to sours. Blueberries and a bit of zest on the end. Very one note but it is very enjoyable with it's muted flavor.

Draft at the brewery
Nice creamy pink head fades at a medium pace, low lacing, but solid purple-reddish raspberry jam color

Nose loads if jammy blueberry, juicy tart berry with light lemon in the background, clear lactose and lacto funk like a little yogurt, big berry sorbet, lactic acid, light funky note

Taste lemon tort up front, lemony, tart with light funk and lactic acid, lactose sugar with more yogurt notes, then blueberry jam finally comes through, jammy blueberry, with flemmy acidic finish

Mouth is med bod, creamy fluffy carb and jammy, creamy lactose

Overall pretty solid jammy blueberry lemon sour, decent mix of the two between the nose and taste

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery today.

A - Poured a nice hazy berry juice hue with a one finger white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Big aromas of bright, tart, juicy blueberries. Swirls bring out big blueberry skin and lemon peel. Really really vibrant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with big lemon notes up front. Light cracker grains as well. The blueberry comes through at the end with subtle berry tartness and sweetness.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, however, it's rather bright and crisp.

O - Overall this was a really fun beer with tons of blueberry on the nose, wish there was more blueberry on the taste.

4.21/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a lightly cloudy deep red wine color with a half finger fizzy head that settles to nothing quickly.

Aroma is a slightly bready blueberry with some sweetness coming through.

Taste is a tart blueberry up front. So.e sweet bread notes are in the midtaste. Lemon zest lingers in the finish with blueberry notes.

Feel is a little soft and moderately tart. This is more mellow than I was expecting. Good though.

This a great flavor, not sharp. The lemon zest works well.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a deep purple/blue color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Lots of blueberry up front along with a bit of the lemon zest and lactic sour notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the blueberry and a bit of lactic tartness and then picks up the lemon zest and bready malt. Not overpowering at all. Finishes with lingering blueberry and bready malt

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid kettle sour that really highlights the blueberry. Lemon zest compliments well. Super easy to drink. Endless ride indeed
