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.

22/IV/13 - 750ml bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-351) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy nice ruby red to pinkish purple beer, big aery pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of fruit, very funky, actually not so pleasant. Lemony, orange flavoured vitamin effervescent tablets, pretty bad. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Tasty: same orange flavoured vitamin tablets, lemony, orange peel, very sour. Aftertaste: bitter as well, sour, dry, tannins, lemony. Not a big fan of this.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Rougeâtre, col blanc léger. Arôme st fruité avec ce bouquet myrtilles laissant un léger côté fleuri, grains sur une note aigre boisée de chêne. Palais est ici bien aigre avec le rajout d’une base fruitée légèrement acidulée. Retrouve ce profil typique américain des ’sours’ le tout couplé à une pointe boisée de chêne qui ajoute une certaine complexité et une fine aigreur. Pas mauvaise, mais pas ma préférée de Cascade.

Courtesey of Travlr. 2012 Vintage. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Pours a dark fox raspberry colour, quickly fading pinkish head. Tart, lightly lactic blueberries, lightly lactic, tart, fruity, strong spices, almost Christmas wine touch,… Lightly lactic tart blueberries, spices, funky, light sour, finish is bitter, blueberry top, light wine, tart, sour tartness, light yeast,… Fluffy carbonation. Tartness states in the back of your mouth. Not bad at all.

Hair6a11 (1387) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle; Pour is murky purple / blue / brown with a white head, perhaps a hint of lavender here. The nose is blueberry , bread, mild earth here, feint spicing, and light funk; the flavor profile has an initial light funk, average souring, moderate body, revealing more blueberry with skins and juice, caramel, oak, bread, and a touch of citrus near the finish - This is a very nice attempt at a blueberry sour with a decent base beer

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours almost purple, or maybe I’m just imagining that. Medium acidity, some solid blueberry sweetness, just a hint of funk, light candy sweetness, and a little tartness in the finish. Solid.

Bottle shared with some dads. Pours a purple pink body with nice lacing. Aroma is tart blueberry. Mouthfeel is medium and tart with light funk, lots of blueberries and some tart candy in the background. Pretty straight forward blueberry sour ale.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending this bottle my way. Andre always is there with a great PNW hookup. Purple-blue pour with a white head. There is some nice blueberry notes in the flavor and aroma, but that is accompanied by some nice funk, vanilla and oak. There is some nice tartness but it is not overpowering and the fruit is still allow to come through. Quite complex. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a light pink with big white head. Aroma is of sweet, natural blueberries and some mild funk. The berries again come through in the taste. Wood, slight sourness then bigger sour elements. Very nice.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a very dark plum-blood red color with a medium sized foamy pink head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was funky, tart, sour, vague berries, pepper and Sweettart candies. the flavor was dry, tart and sour with funk, chalk and strong tart berries. Very long dry, tart and sour berry and funk finish. Medium body. Interesting.
