Funk Factory Geuzeria Meerts Blueberry
What the brewers say
Foeder-fermented sour beer aged on blueberries.
What our panel thought
Light blackberry, blueberry, brought to heel by a very strong balsamic vinegar aroma. The flavor brings in some meaty umami, mushroom, and clementine to complement the blueberry, accented by a punch of lactic tartness. While it’s not bad to drink, you can’t help but want to put it on a salad with some first-pressing olive oil.
What our editors thought
Light wine grape on the nose with a balsamic note underneath. The sip is aggressively acid-forward, with a lactic-acetic blend, and the red-grape note even in the sip pushes that balsamic note even farther. A bit too intense for enjoyment; best in small doses.
