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.

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!

Pretty pour, sharp purpley pink with two fingers of soft reddish white head. Very funky nose, soft fruity notes with blueberry and a light floral quality. Lovely aroma. Flavor takes on some acetic notes with a band-aid/marker quality. Very dry with a moderately sharp acidity.

JulienHuxley (4230) - Trois-Rivičres, 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.

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.
