COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour ale blends wheat & blond ales that were oak aged in barrels for 6 mths, then additionally aged 4 mths on fresh blueberries. Huge herbal notes of dense blueberries in the nose give way to hints of oak & a dusty floral note. Rich earthy notes of dark fruit on the palate lead to a tart finish that dries out to a base note of blueberry skins.

Draft at Sour Fest 2013. Deep magenta colored pour with a bubbly pink head. Oak, acetic acid, blueberry and blackberry and earthy funk in the aroma. Strong, tart, acidic, puckering sour flavor with blueberries and oak. Medium bodied and sour finish. Not too shabby.

Syran är hög. Syltig i doft. Påminner inte helt långsökt om Ekströms osötade blåbärssoppa

RumRunner101 (770) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Pours a plum purple with a pink-ish head. Aroma is tart blueberries, lots of oak. Tart berries, some funk, oak in the body. Lightly sour finish. I don’t usually care for blueberry beers, this is an exception.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. pours purple with a mauve head that doesnt last. tons of blueberry, wood, overall tartness but not a ton of acid. really comes off as a well done fruit beer rather then a full on sour. pretty good but a bit over rated IMO.

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Cascade Barrel House PDX, @ 7.66% ABV, 22/05/13. Clear cherry red with a thin white head. Nose is tarte berry fruits, wood notes, light balsams. Taste comprises sour berry fruit, light sugars, funky, oaky notes, tarte blueberry. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sour tarte finish, lightly puckering. Decent but blueberry is never my favourite fruit in a beer, whatever the style.

ClubGonzo (4025) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ Kraddel’s TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. So this is the U.S. answer to Cantillon? Let’s see. Pours a deep hazy purple body with a small light pink head. Aroma is tart blueberry tones, horseblanket, hints of lemon and citric zest notes. Taste is blueberries, smokey meat tones, hints of tart horsey barnyard notes and dark berries. Medium to thin body, high carbonation. A nice sour; not quite par with good ol’ Cantillon but a pretty good attempt nevertheless.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Sample at the Barrel House. Cloudy ruby-brown pour with a medium thin fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of berries and yeast. Medium body with a midly funky undertone and flavors of blueberries, earthy yeast and citrus. The finish is fruity with a mildly tart blueberry aftertaste. Solid all around.

Nice sour. Somewhat sweet. Good blueberry base. Recommended! Not a big sour fan, but I like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Bottle 750ml. Pours sligthly cloudy pink with almost no head. Aroma is of blueberries, fruits. Taste is of fruit tartness, blueberries, sligth acidity. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Dry mouthfeel. Almost mouth puckering. Overall: Very interesting berries. [Edit: Had another glass of this. Similar indeed, but noticed a bit of barnyard in aroma. Pretty much same rating; this beer is good.]
