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.

750ml shared by Madvike. Purple red, deep. Oily, thin head. Juicy, fruity. Some of that test tube US action, but juicy and nice, real fruity depth. Captures a mellow enjoyability not found in most US sours.

Bottle. Clear bright red with a small foamy pink head. Sweet blueberry, tart lemon and sour apple aroma. Bright lively palate. Tastes of lemon up front followed by lightly sugary blueberry flavors and finishing with acidic sour fruit flavors and a very dry finish. Very good.

JulienHuxley (5520) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
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 I’ve had. Taste is very lactic and sour. Blueberries are more tamed and you can feel the oak.

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.

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.
