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.

bytemesis (3076) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish blue with a medium punk fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is tart, funk, lemon, fruit. Flavor is the same, light tart, little sweetness, blueberry coming through on the dry finish. Medium body, very carbonated, aerated mouthfeel. Nice.

jercraigs (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
2013-02-02. Dark pink purple body with a small pink head. 3++ Pretty interesting aroma, fruity, blueberry, very light funky undertones. 8++ Flavour is similar, modest sourness throughout, tart blueberry and dryish finish. 8+ Average bodied palate with nice carbonation. Lovely stuff! Not super complex but really lets the blueberries shine. They must have used a ton of fruit! Very nice. Bottle at Sourfest, Buffalo

AirForceHops (3099) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2013
750 ml bottle split with Adam Jackson. 2012 vintage. Poured a hazy purple color with thin white head. Nose is mostly tart berries and light lacto. Taste is fresh blueberries initially then transitions to tart puckering wheat notes. Some Earthy notes and light booze. Light to medium body with a dry tart finish. Acidic and lightly sharp after taste. This is a beautiful sour and would love to grab a bottle and sit on it to see how it changes. Awesome!

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Opaque cherry red body; pink foamy head. Tart buggy aroma. Fizzy. Tart puckering flavor. The oak comes out more later in the bottle. Pretty good, but so far the apricot is the best of the bunch.

illidurit (2130) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Cloudy purplish red color, like macerated blueberry flesh. Ecru head with a pink tinge. Blueberry preserve aroma, cheesy and lactic. Flavor is fruity and phenolic, with blueberries, unripe strawberries, plastic notes fade with a little warmth. Lacks the sourness and intense fruitiness of, say, Blabaer. Still a solid attempt.
