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. Pours like a Pinot with a bit of pink foam. Sour fruit comes through on the nose. Taste gives you big oak, almost some smoke? Nice and tart but not overpowering. Finish is a bit abrupt. Solid.

JBPortland (654) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Thanks to Lukaduke for sharing this bottle! Pours clear dark blue-purple with 1 finger of pink head. Nose is tart earthy berry, wine, sweet. Mouthfeel is tart and slick, easy drinking. Taste is tart, blueberry, blackberry, some funk, the berries are well balanced. Finish is a pleasant sour fruitiness with some sweet (but not sugary) notes of berry and oak mixed in. Very good, probably my favorite blueberry sour yet.

Lukaduke (2038) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a violet rose color with a finger of pinkish grey foam. The nose is full of rustic blueberry tartness, dusty barrel funk and a bit of herbal notes. The palate follows the nose with touches of thyme, sage and tons of blueberry funk. Not sweet blueberry but tart earthy fruit with a trace of round spicy oak to fill out the mouthfeel and add more complexity, Bits of vanilla and musty basement linger in the finish. Damn thats a tasty beer !

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 22.04.2013, 0,75l bottle sampled @ kraddel’s tasting:
Lett frisk og syrlig lukt med preg av malt, kunstig blåbærbruspulver, gras. Frisk lett syrlig smak med preg av malt, kunstige sure blåbær, syregras. Middels bitterhet som set litt, uttørrande munnfølelse. Kjedelig.

Pours a pretty cloudy red color. Honestly red. Aromas of dusty blueberries, some cobweb. Taste is pretty fruity and sour. Dusty. Quick finish. Very good.

Nocturne (746) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Sampled at the Barrel House. This one is a hazy red shade with a ring of light pinkish white foam. As expected, blueberries start coming forth in the aroma. To me it actually tastes more like a red grape sour, but blueberry certainly comes out in the finish. Much more tart than some of the other Cascades I had. Good stuff.

Pours a nice deep pink purple liquid with a pink fluffy head. Aroma: aroma has some dark berries, blueberry, green apples, sour, some funk, some barnyard. Nice and balanced. Taste: sour, nice fruity component but not too much blueberries initially, Get more bluberries in the back. Some funk in there. 2012 bottle. Good sour!
