For the past two years, we've been making a fruited blend with Camerise in small quantities. Also known as haskap or blue honeysuckle, these berries are slightly sweet with a beautiful acidity.
The beer's color is a deep, deep red. It's powerful and very fruit-forward, but still maintains a nice, mellow balance between acidity and astringency.
We didn't have to look very far for a its new name... a blue fruit that makes a blood-red beer: Sang Bleu. Our friend Ammo has outdone himself once again, creating a superb new label to go with its new name.

Maceration of 2-year old lambic with blue honeysuckle.

Bottle 19/20 vintage. Dark garnet pour with a white head. Exotic berry bouquet. Oh man that’s tasty. Super interesting berry highlights dominate muted funk and barnyard. Just fantastic!!!

Taster showing vinous red with quickly dissipating clean white foam. The nose shows intense notes of tart brett and lighter notes of black cherries and blackberries with hints of steel tank. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Moderately tart with intense juicy forward flavors of black cherry and tart blackberry that seems to go on forever. Very long finish.

Pours dark, purplered. Small layer of pinkwhite head. Scent is mild, fruity. Taste is medium intense tart, dry, medium fruit intensity. Medium berry intensity. Oaky, milder cantillon funk. Very decent. --- Beer aliased from original tick of Camerise Lambic on 03 Jan 2020 at 11:09 - Score: Appearance - 8 | Aroma - 7.5 | Flavor - 7.5 | Texture - 8 | Overall - 8. Original review text: Pours dark red, too dark to see trough, yet relatively clear. Small, nearly no white head. Smell is strong, herbal berries. Overpowering even cantillon's funk. Taste is full, berries, herbal, tart, earthy, intense. very balanced somehow. Low carbonation, sharp, dry mouthfeel. Lingering acidity. Very low on acetic acid. nice !

Horse blanket, berry (kind of a raspberry/blueberry mix), malt, and hay aroma. Dark ruby red with small head. Mildly sweet berry, malt, moderately bitter vinegar and Brett, and mildly bitter grass flavor. Nice body and balance. Excellent.
