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.

Prufrockstar (1775) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Appear: pretty purpley, muddy cranberry color. Pink head, dissipates quickly. Sexy. Aroma: blueberry funk, sour - weird. Blueberries wrapped in plastic. Taste: moderate sour at front, blueberries add sweetness. Palate: lively carb, medium body. Overall: blueberry taste not as strong as smell, but wow blueberry does not blend well with other beer flavors here. Disappointing, especially at $20/ bottle. Will not buy again. The "sour" is nice though, were it not for the blueberry :(. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drowland (7713) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2016
3/15/16. 750mL bottle from Craft on Draft. Dark blue/purple pour with a small, fizzy pinkish purplish head that sizzles away fast. The look plus my color blindness sorta makes it look like a glass of Diet Coke... but of course purple/blue when I look closer. Annnnnnyway... huge sour aroma, on par with other Cascades, leaning a bit towards acetic, though, tannic berries and dark fruits. Big sour flavor, acidic, citric, lactic, and acetic, etc. Blueberry, dark fruits, oak and vanilla, a touch musty, lingers very sour and dry.

@ Cascade 16-3-9: småsyrliga blåbär med lite syltvarning. Ingen stor bärton utan enbart en liten gnutta.

On tap at Cascade. Pinkish with a small head. Mild aroma of blueberries, more in the taste. Also funk and oak. The finish was dry.

tmoreau (3413) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a dark mahogany color, ruby highlighting at the stem, with a modest layer of tan head foam. and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was grandma’s attic funk, and fruit as blueberry & raisin, with light, cookie-like malt. Medium bodied, tart to the edge of sour, with moderate earthy & tannic astringency, and lively enough carbonation to successfully escort all the notes.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, 2014, corked and capped poured into tulip. Clear dark red with small off-white head. Aroma is tart blueberry, medium/light body, medium/light carbonation, and a little lacing. Taste is tart, some oak, and hints of blueberries. Hoped for more blueberry.

hivemind (880) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2015
On draft at the Barrel House in Aug 2014 with Erica, Matt. Bright bright red pour with white head and soapy lacing that disappears. Tart red wine grapes on the tongue with some dry tannins; good, robust body. Dry on the way down. Not a lot of blueberry noticed somehow.

Bomber. Darker pour. Tart blueberry skin aroma and taste. A bit sweet and jammy, but that gets overshadowed by the tart dark fruit. Good stuff!

750 mL bottle shared by me at Gus's house for a tasting. 2014 vintage. The pour is a bright ruby color With a thin ring of white head and some decent lace. The aroma is great blueberry with a lovely sour character and a delightful oak complexity. The wood adds a great character. The flavor is really good. Sour up front but then it mellows out to a blueberry sweetness on the back end. The fruit is great and the oak adds such a mellowing tone. I wish this was more sour throughout. The mouth feel is thin and crisp. Greatly acidic first and just lovely. Carbonation is sharp and it has an oaky acidic finish. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
