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.

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.

suprchunk (2168) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2014
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.

A - pours hazy purplish berry with 1 finger head that disappears in a flash. S - the nose is tart berry/cherry, lemon juice and oak notes. Some lacto and must. M - light, almost watery thin and sour. Simple but nice. No too sweet. Vibrant carb. T - pretty simple. Lemon juice, lemon zest, tart blueberries, and bugs (lacto/Brett) and musty oak. O - a linear but nice fruit sour. 4

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 15, 2013
750 ml corked bottle, 2012 vintage (7,66% ABV). A lightly hazy dark red beer, with a large, fizzy, almost fully diminishing pinkish head. The aroma is very lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of blueberries, currants, wood. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, soft/lively carbonation, pretty dry and long finish with light bitterness, lightly alcoholic. The aroma is milder than expected. Blueberries notes are mixed with currants and rather soft woody hints, while the taste develops a refreshing fruitiness, mixed with a balanced acidity and a light funk. Very fun to drink, since it gots the ideal level of acidity I like enjoying in my fruit beer. Cascade seems to be a strong brewery.

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle: 2012 Project. Hybrid translucent ruby, indigo, & orange body with a stark white head that fades to a small ring almost instantly. Aroma has big notes of sweet blueberry, sharp acidity, lots of musk, & a decent amount of funk... One of the funkiest things I’ve smelled from Cascade, but a big, musty wet oak & damp cellar character throughout... smells almost Belgian, even. Taste has plenty of tart blueberry with softer notes of astringent cherry & apple skins, & a mild finish of blackberry. Very "berry"-ish all around, though blueberry is the main proponent. Lots of citric acidity & finishing sweetness, again, with a big woody, musty, yeasty funk that works hard from mid-palate to finish. Love this brew.
