Bottle. Red with pink froth. Big sour nose with blueberry tartness. Starts out surprisingly sweet but quickly switches to sour. Very nice. I find the aftertaste is so strong with the flavours very present that additional sip adds a reduced amount to the senses. Sweetness sets it apart from other sours.

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.

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.

Tap at Cascade Barrel House. 2014. Deep blueberry-stained red, cream foam. Waxy aroma, touch of earthy sour. Fruit skin. Best of the pure fruits on this night. But I’d be hard-pressed to say blueberry blind.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 vintage. Pours lightly hazy ruby red color with a 1-2 finger foamy light pink head with decent retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing on the glass, with tons of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tart blueberry, green apple, cherry, pear, raspberry, pepper, hay, funk, oak, clove, leather, red wine, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of blueberry notes with fruity/spicy yeast and barrel presence; and big strength. Taste of tart blueberry, blueberry skin, green apple, pear, raspberry, pepper, hay, grass, oak, clove, funk, leather, red wine, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of blueberry, apple, pear, raspberry, pepper, oak, clove, hay, funk, red wine, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of blueberries with fruity/spicy yeast and barrel notes; with a fantastic balance of malt/acidity and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Blueberry sour ale! All around great complexity and balance of blueberry with fruity/funky yeast and oak character; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the moderate acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2015 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.
Rerate a recent bottle, much better than first time.
