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 @ Kraddel’s TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. So this is the U.S. answer to Cantillon? Let’s see. Pours a deep hazy purple body with a small light pink head. Aroma is tart blueberry tones, horseblanket, hints of lemon and citric zest notes. Taste is blueberries, smokey meat tones, hints of tart horsey barnyard notes and dark berries. Medium to thin body, high carbonation. A nice sour; not quite par with good ol’ Cantillon but a pretty good attempt nevertheless.

750ml C&C bottle. Ugly pour, light opaque maroon body with a smaller fizzy off white head. Aroma was blueberry muffin, cake batter, sour lemons, some odd Body Works blueberry hand sanitizer. Decent body, stronger bubbly carbonation, medium mouthfeel and a sour finish. Flavor is more sour than the aroma lets on. Blueberry, lemon, sourness, dry straw. Solid.

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14
This is a pinkish-purple colored beer. It has a fruity/berry aroma. Slightly herbal. Some woody notes. Another very tasty fruit sour from Cascade. These guys do fruit sours and they do them well.

Pretty pour, sharp purpley pink with two fingers of soft reddish white head. Very funky nose, soft fruity notes with blueberry and a light floral quality. Lovely aroma. Flavor takes on some acetic notes with a band-aid/marker quality. Very dry with a moderately sharp acidity.

Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish blue with a medium punk fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is tart, funk, lemon, fruit. Flavor is the same, light tart, little sweetness, blueberry coming through on the dry finish. Medium body, very carbonated, aerated mouthfeel. Nice.

Tap @ Cascade Barrel House... Poured reddish/pink with a thin, bubbly head. Nose had some tangy yogurt, buttery, lactic acid and faint blueberries. Tasted of blueberries and sweet tarts with some acidic sourness. No bitterness, sour and a highly lactic. The usual from Cascade with a hint of blueberries.
