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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 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; 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.

Barrel house, 04AUG12, from notes
Nice pretty blueberry juice color with some pink tinted white rimming of foam. Nose is blueberry, sour vinous grains, surprisingly grassy and back country with hints of hay and soil. Flavor pulls out a good sharp, astringent sourness with strong blueberry flavors and a good full bodied feeling with low carb and an off dry finish. A good beer. I would buy a few bottles if available. I think I prefer the Apricot over this one.
