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 shared at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks troganmi for this bottle! 2012 bottle. Nice clear red with a pinkish head. Aroma is a bit medicinal, with berries, oak and some funk. Sour flavor with berries, oak, light sweetness, citric notes and some funk. Medium-bodied.

Grant is now equally as much a man as Paul. Stunning pour, a deep blood red with hints of blue. Just a gorgeous beer, with blueberry and blackberry melding with a lovely herbal tang, tannic zing, pomegranate, raspberry; So nice that the pure blueberry character yields such a complex, overarching bouquet. Definite oak in there, but soft and clean. Outrageous.

Very purply and definitely has a blueberry flavor. Solid, but not Cascade’s best work.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep blue/purple with a pinkish head. Aroma of sourness, blueberry, light oak, and pale malts. Flavor a cool blend of it all. Average texture. Another cool Cascade fruit sour.

Un beau cadeau que cette dégustation offerte par SlovakSniper. Project 2012. Un liquide trouble rouge canneberge avec une mousse blanche. Un nez avec des effluves de vineux de bleuets, acide mais pas trop. Une bouche évidemment de bleuets, avec une belle texture, vineuse. À boire à grande lampé, remarquablement facile à boire. 7,66% 8\10

Pours a dark red with thin head. Strong sour blueberry aroma. Strong bite taste with long lasting blueberry and sour flavors. A little different then most sour ales, but overall a good, must try beer. I’ll be looking into this brewery some more.

2012 project. Une robe violacée. Un nez de barrique de vin rouge, de notes lactiques et acétiques avec une bonne base douce de bleuets. Une bouche aigre, fruitée et spontanée. J’aime bien l’équilibre des saveurs. Elles ne sont jamais dans l’excès. Une qualité appréciable. Une bouche huileuse qui montre une quantité appréciable de bulles bien fines. Une finale extra sèche. Une excessive buvabilité.

750 ml bottle 2012 vintage, thanks poisoneddarf- Pours dark ruby red with a light purple crackly head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is fresh blueberries, funky and tart. The taste is tart, lighter blueberries than the aroma but still there. Body is medium and carbonation is bubbly and high. I wish the taste lived up to the aroma, otherwise a world class beer.

750 ml corked and caged bottle, 2012 Project. Pours hazy ruby red with a purple-white head with decent retention. Aroma is blueberry-packed. Taste is sour (7/10 on a sour scale), acidic, blueberry fruit (but not as strong as the cherries in the Cantillon we had before this). Foamy champagne-like mouthfeel. Really good beer, but it can’t compete with the Cantillon.

Bottle thanks to Beechner224. pours a very nice reddish color with a slight pink haze. I don’t get much blueberry in the smell. But the taste is great. Not to sour or tart. A little blueberry in the taste but this beer is very good.
