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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a red amber color, white head. Aroma is tart, get the blueberries, strong sourness. Taste is also very tart, mild fruitiness. Tasty, more sour than I was expecting.

Blood reddish colored pour. What started as a big white and purple head faded fast. Little lacing. A very sour fruity aroma with a slight blueberry and tire aroma. Sour fruit taste with very faint blueberry and cherries. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is red/purple with a small pink head. Aroma and flavor are both of tart fruit, oak, and yeast. Body is quite sour and acidic.

Never had a blueberry sour before. It was pretty good, not amazing. The tartness dominates the fruit and about everything else in the beer. It still has other flavors, but it’s a little out of balance. Still, I dig tart, so I liked it overall.
