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.

Bottle generously shared at tasting with RB crew. Pours blue-ish purple with foamy pinkish head. Smells like sour fresh blueberries, wood and some funkiness. Taste is tart blueberry skins and yeast with some woody funkiness. Really enjoyable and refreshing.

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a slightly hazy reddish purple color with a small off white head. The aroma has a nice blueberry fruit character, mildly tart, woody, mild acidity, some earthy notes and light funk. The flavor is moderate blueberry fruit, wood, lightly acidic, mildly tart with some earthy qualities. This is not overly sour and doesn’t have the massive fruit punch of a Belgian Red, but this is still tasty and definitely worth trying.

badhack (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 2, 2013
Tasted strongly of berries, all manner. Lots of fizzy bubbles and a reddish color. Taste was tart and sweet but not overly acidic. Lots of berry, some lemon, Nicely balanced and delicious. Some oak to add depth but not much in the way of grain. A little on the dry side.

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 (8060) - 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
