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.

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.

Bottle chilling (literally) in the DLD line. Now this was pretty nice. Well balanced between the funk and blueberries. The fruit was still there to add some sweetness and bump up the tartness.

Un beau cadeau que cette dégustation offerte par SlovakSniper. Project 2012. Un liquide trouble rouge canneberge avec une mousse blanche. Un nez avec des effluves de vineux de bleuets, acide mais pas trop. Une bouche évidemment de bleuets, avec une belle texture, vineuse. À boire à grande lampé, remarquablement facile à boire. 7,66% 8\10

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!

SlovakSniper (3093) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
2012 project. Une robe violacée. Un nez de barrique de vin rouge, de notes lactiques et acétiques avec une bonne base douce de bleuets. Une bouche aigre, fruitée et spontanée. J’aime bien l’équilibre des saveurs. Elles ne sont jamais dans l’excès. Une qualité appréciable. Une bouche huileuse qui montre une quantité appréciable de bulles bien fines. Une finale extra sèche. Une excessive buvabilité.

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.

Pours a purplish reddish color with a medium purplish head. Aroma has tart/sourness with oak with mild berry notes. Flavor has lemony tartness with light blueberry and subtle oak. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is tart lemony/blueberry and dry.

Bottle from a trade with UDBeernut. Pours reddish purple color with thin light pink head. Aroma of sour berries. Sour fruit flavor with some oak. Faint blueberry flavor, I was hoping for a stronger blueberry presence. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Art!

JulienHuxley (2991) - 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.
