Nose: very fruity tangy-sweet blueberry puree, jam-like. (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: crisp-light fizzy

Mid-palate: chocolately barley malt, background alcholic tangy-sour, (lvl-3-sweetness), thinnish body

Finish: blueberry exhale, subtle bitter hops, lingering bittersweet chocolate malt.

Summary: A surprising note of chocolate in there but it drinks rather dull and uninspiring. The flavour doesnt exactly scream blueberry nor dry hops. Slightly above average.
