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.

Draught 2013 project. Pours a brownish purple color with a huge pinkish white head on it. Nose is definitely sour with a surprising amount of blueberry in there. Taste is actually a bit sweet up front, though the sourness really comes through. Lots of blueberry, and feels very bubbly as well.

AirForceHops (3524) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2013
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!

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.

JulienHuxley (3480) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - 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.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
murky cherry with thin strawberry yogurt ring for a head. Balsamic nose borders on bile, sickly berry sweetness dominating. Autolysis at front that blows off with warmth, arsenic and berry mid before a meaty rubber reemerge a in the fleshy, medicinal finish, fruit but off, rotting even, and it’s not blueberry. Sticky and full, oppressive.

PhillyCraft (3443) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle split with Tom and Jessie. Pours a purple haze with thin white head. Aromas and taste are very perfumey, and dark grape forward. Lots of barrel yeast with a really sour finish. As it warmed I got more tart blueberry, raspberry, and other sugary fruitts. Pretty tasty.

25.4 oz bottle. Deep purple with foamy pink edges. Nose is yoghurt, cheese, sour blueberry, grain and lemon pudding. Tart and juicy with a growing pucker and a dry finish. Taste is sour lemon with hints of blueberry and earthy skins. Solid simple sour.
