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.

Huge thanks to barleywinefiend for snagging this growler and getting it to drabmuh and I, thus setting up the Cascade sour tasting. Served in a Cascade Barrel House goblet. Pours a beautiful deep blue with some hints of violet. Nice white head with a bit of faded blue mixed in. Fantastic coloring. The nose carries a bit of acidity paired with really bright, fresh notes of blueberry and accompanying skin. Very light earthiness there as well. The blueberry aspect continues through the flavor. There’s so much depth just from the blueberries. Such a great berry to use with a sour and, in my opinion, far superior to the typical choice of raspberry. I was ecstatic to hear that Cascade was going to be releasing bottles of this. Behind the blueberry, there is moderate acidity. The body is crisp with clean acidity and a dry, sour finish. Good carbonation. This is an impressive beer and one that I hope becomes a regular offering in Cascade’s fruited sour rotation.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours reddish purple with an off-white head, The aroma has blueberries pomegranate, red wine and bits of funk. It has a medium crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with tart blueberries, alcohol, barrel and other red berry flavors. The finish has the heavy fruit and adds a nice oak element. Quite nice.

750 ml bottle split with Adam Jackson. 2012 vintage. Poured a hazy purple color with thin white head. Nose is mostly tart berries and light lacto. Taste is fresh blueberries initially then transitions to tart puckering wheat notes. Some Earthy notes and light booze. Light to medium body with a dry tart finish. Acidic and lightly sharp after taste. This is a beautiful sour and would love to grab a bottle and sit on it to see how it changes. Awesome!

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.
