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 corked bottle pours a reddish brown color when held to the light with a fizzy white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is of dark fruit and musty yeast notes with hints of wood. Taste is a big tartness from the fruit and a malty sweetness underneath, finishing with a bit of yeast funk. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a very sour ale that takes some getting used to. Burns on the way down, but still a quality brew.

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.

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.

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.

Pours mahogany blue into a snifter. White micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Blueberry and oak aromas. Sharp with sweet blueberry and tart lactic notes. Dry lasting blueberry powder finish.

ClubGonzo (5406) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
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.

JohnnyJ (5367) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Sample at Stone sour ale fest 2012. Bubbly clear reddish purple pour. Very nice blueberry aroma, mmm fresh blueberry. Flavor is tart lemon, blueberry, grain, and moderate sourness. Nice and refreshing, and not too over the top compared to other cascade sours. It would be great on hot summer day.

Poured a deep purple color with aromas of blueberries, light wet oak, some tartness, and a touch of vinegar. Flavors matched the aromas, tart blueberries, funk and some light wet wood, enjoybale and really drinkable.
