Gotta give some love to Lumdog for hooking me up with this bottle. What a giving soul he be. Batch E!02I served up in a tulip.

A: Popping this bottle with the cork screw was a chore. You could feel how much pressure was in the bottle when taking it off. Once safely uncorked, large pop with streaming gun smoke pouring from the bottle (no gushing though). Poured into the glass, it pours a rosey, blush colored liquid. Held to the light, the blush lightens a bit and a little bit of orange hues come through. Body is nice and cloudy. Got about a finger of head off the pour. The foam is a light pink in clor and falls very slowly. The bubbly foam falls to a half finger and lasts out the rest of the experience. A little bit of lace builds every once in a while. Very nice.

S: The smell of this one hits you immediately as the cork comes off. Smells a hell of a lot like Brute to tell the truth. Lots of barnyard and musky funk. Really nice tartness coming out from a seemingly berry presence. The crazy thing is that it sets itself apart from the blueberry notes. The blueberry comes across as more a sweet aroma in this nose. The blueberry is not the showstopper here, but it is a beautiful compliment. Works wonderfully.

T: Yet again, starting off with that wonderful Brett funky awesomeness. Wonderfully tart but still has some serious funkiness to it as well. Little bit of sour apple and some nice vinegar note coming out (probably best described as a little apple cider vinegar). This beer has a little bit of grassiness to it as well. The blueberry notes are light, a little sweet and a little tart. Blueberry comes on the back end and rounds out the beer by bringing out a fully distinguishable fruit flavor.

M: Feel is on the lighter side with a big ass carbonation. Makes the beer very light and fluffy. Alcohol is not a factor here. Nice dry champagne like finish. Tart with just a little bit of sweetness of the palate. Aftertaste is the tart vinegar and a little bit of blueberry.

OA: Has a lot of the great qualities of Brute but it does have a few wonderful and subtle changes. The blueberry is not a crazy aggressive ingredient but it compliments almost every aspect of the beer. Just wonderful. Its tart but it doesn't kill the palate and remains very drinkable. Really a beautiful beer indeed. Loving it.
