4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle is trade. Pours out an odd reddish purple berry juice color with not much of a head. Aroma is of lots of fresh blueberries, funky tartness, light sweetness, Brett and mild vinegar notes. Taste is very blueberry forward, nailed that one, you know these blueberries were fresh. Funky Brett, some tart sourness, almost puckering tartness balanced nicely with more sweet/ tart fresh blueberries. Nice!

Beautiful purple, light people head. Nose is grape Flintstones vitamins, a little cheese. Flavor is grape vitamins, acidity is restrained compared to the apricot. Quite dry.

Pours perfectly berry in color, like a hazy raspberry with a nice pink champagne colored head. The aroma is sweet, with vague notes of bluebs fresh, with a bit of wild yeast in the background. The flavor brings nice tart tangy notes without the blueberries as you would expect them to be much more prevalent. The flavor of a Flemish sour with a lighter body to end.

750mL bottle shared at a tasting. Of course, the beer pours beautifully with a thick dark blue color and a fizzy purple head. The beer is generally a very natural blueberry flavor and aroma. In the taste its a very jammy blueberry. Very bright flavor surrounded by acetic touches and sourness. The acetic is balanced by a strong carbonation that tickles the cheeks. Really enjoyed this beer, havenít had a Cascade in a while and they seem to be doing a very good job.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared at a recent tasting. Acquired in a trade with Thorpe429 & drabmuh.
The beer is bluish purple colored and clear with a light purple head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. A mouth watering appearance.
The aroma is just sublime. Blueberry pie with subtle notes of vanilla and a nice tartness. A beer to sniff and savor as long as your willpower can last.
Blueberries come through nicely. Mild acetic and lactic quality. Not nearly as sour as many other Cascade offerings, but refreshing and tart.
Creamy and smooth. A light sweetness from the berries offers balance.
Overall, I am quite pleased to hear this will be released in bottles. I look forward to having this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy reddish/purple color with pink head. Aroma is some band-aid, alcohol, fruit, and herbs. Taste is semi-sweet with some tartness. Iím not getting the sour/tart blueberries I was hoping for. This one just never really got there. Very dry, asprin finish. Not bad, but not that great. Maybe a little age will help?

Bottle shared at Harvest festival. Purple-blue pour with small head. Blueberries are definitly present in the aroma, very lactic too. Something artificial too I seemed to find in most Cascade beers Iíve had. Taste is very lactic and sour. Blueberries are more tamed and you can feel the oak.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. pours purple with a mauve head that doesnt last. tons of blueberry, wood, overall tartness but not a ton of acid. really comes off as a well done fruit beer rather then a full on sour. pretty good but a bit over rated IMO.
