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.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Sample at the Barrel House. Cloudy ruby-brown pour with a medium thin fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of berries and yeast. Medium body with a midly funky undertone and flavors of blueberries, earthy yeast and citrus. The finish is fruity with a mildly tart blueberry aftertaste. Solid all around.

Minderbinder (1584) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Bottle 750ml. Pours sligthly cloudy pink with almost no head. Aroma is of blueberries, fruits. Taste is of fruit tartness, blueberries, sligth acidity. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Dry mouthfeel. Almost mouth puckering. Overall: Very interesting berries. [Edit: Had another glass of this. Similar indeed, but noticed a bit of barnyard in aroma. Pretty much same rating; this beer is good.]

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David, thanks! Hazy purple with a small pink head that quickly dissipates and leave no lacing. Aroma is of intense blueberry jam, oak, acetic notes and herbal/floral presence. Taste is sligthtly sweet and moderately to heavily sour with blueberry jam again, lactic and acetic presence, wood and slight herbal/floral notes (mostly covered by the sourness). Medium body. Leaves the mouth dry. Not easy on the stomach, but really fun to try but all those blueberries! I liked it!

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a hazy purple with pink head, no lacing. Aroma is full of blueberry jam, some oak. Taste is all about the blueberrys, big lactic and acetic notes, oak. Low mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty good but sharing this one is a good idea.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2013
DLD 2012: Pinkish hue with a fizzy head. The profile was tart blueberries and white grapes, oak, wheat, biscuit, mineral, and a hint of tannins. The mouth feel was quite refreshing, sprite and lively with just the right amount of oak dryness. I really enjoyed this even with the high level of acidity. Nice!

22/IV/13 - 750ml bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-351) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy nice ruby red to pinkish purple beer, big aery pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of fruit, very funky, actually not so pleasant. Lemony, orange flavoured vitamin effervescent tablets, pretty bad. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Tasty: same orange flavoured vitamin tablets, lemony, orange peel, very sour. Aftertaste: bitter as well, sour, dry, tannins, lemony. Not a big fan of this.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Rougeâtre, col blanc léger. Arôme st fruité avec ce bouquet myrtilles laissant un léger côté fleuri, grains sur une note aigre boisée de chêne. Palais est ici bien aigre avec le rajout d’une base fruitée légèrement acidulée. Retrouve ce profil typique américain des ’sours’ le tout couplé à une pointe boisée de chêne qui ajoute une certaine complexité et une fine aigreur. Pas mauvaise, mais pas ma préférée de Cascade.

Courtesey of Travlr. 2012 Vintage. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Pours a dark fox raspberry colour, quickly fading pinkish head. Tart, lightly lactic blueberries, lightly lactic, tart, fruity, strong spices, almost Christmas wine touch,… Lightly lactic tart blueberries, spices, funky, light sour, finish is bitter, blueberry top, light wine, tart, sour tartness, light yeast,… Fluffy carbonation. Tartness states in the back of your mouth. Not bad at all.
