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 split with Tom and Jessie. Pours a purple haze with thin white head. Aromas and taste are very perfumey, and dark grape forward. Lots of barrel yeast with a really sour finish. As it warmed I got more tart blueberry, raspberry, and other sugary fruitts. Pretty tasty.

Aroma of rose, tulip, potpourri, slight bile and blueberry. Pours ruby red with slight pink film. Taste is tart boisenberry, with a cheese funk and finishes with a blueberry scone. Very mild.

Bottle, as a road beer at THE Stout Tasting. Cheers to Bruce for sourcing this! The pourís deep, murky purple with a modest reddish head. The nose is earthy blueberry patch, sweet baked blueberry cake, a bit of woodland funk. The taste is mild lactic funk, plenty of blueberry jam and sweet cake. A bit of general herb. Smooth, lightly tart finish. Nice, bouncy, lively body. Easy to drink. Overall, a nice beer. Itís quite simple, but tasty.

Bottle shared with friends. Iíve always loved Cascade sours but this one sort of fell short of my expectations. The color has a blueish tint to it, good carbonation and a light sour aroma. However the flavor just didnít have enough blueberry for me. Maybe Iím being too harsh here but itís just my opinion.

4oz taster at DBS. Aroma is much nicer blueberry than the flavor. You get a lot of the berry skin in the mouth, lots of carbonation, and light Brett. Cascade Apricot is much better than Blueberry. Figaro blows them all away. Fair beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 cc bottles from Smithíd and Caponeís. Pours hazy raspberry/magenta colored with fizzy light pink head tghat laces well. Nose is freshly picked blueberries, earthy woody notes. Tastes very tart, lactic, with a fresh tart blueberry flavor. Finishes acidic and fruity. This one kicks ass.

Stunning purplish-red body, massive dense white head, frothy foamy lacing. Nose shows a rich lactic blueberry muffin character. Some oak and must is also present. Flavor is more fruit forward with slightly sweeter blueberry notes controlling. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and nice lactic acidity.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Thanks thomas15 for sharing. Poured from 750mL a deep purple/red with a bubble gum pink head. Smells of pure funk with slight blueberry. Tastes the same as it smells but with a nice tart finish. Fantastic sour.
