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.

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.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David, thanks! Hazy purple with a small pink head that quickly dissipates and leave no lacing. Aroma is of intense blueberry jam, oak, acetic notes and herbal/floral presence. Taste is sligthtly sweet and moderately to heavily sour with blueberry jam again, lactic and acetic presence, wood and slight herbal/floral notes (mostly covered by the sourness). Medium body. Leaves the mouth dry. Not easy on the stomach, but really fun to try but all those blueberries! I liked it!

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

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.

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.

750ml bottle. Once again courtesy of Todd. Thank you... Cork had a little tension built up and was stubborn to open but eventually conceded. Bottle opened with a small pop, non-gushing, and yields a deep semi-lively violet purple and topped with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of a fruitcentric blueberry forwardness, a touch of sourness, sweet tarts, and a whisper of oak. Nice sour fruit character lacking any bugs or funk in the nose ... Flavors of muted and earthy blueberry notes initially. Not tremendously sour or acidic in any way to begin with but more of a focused lively semi-dry blueberry fruit persuasion with more of a developed sour aspect as it warms. Fruit continues through the middle and finishes on an off-dry note. Lighter bodied than what I was expecting with a sprite lively mouthfeel. Lacking any type of funk character or deeper level of complexity but a pretty nicely conceived sour fruit beer overall. This grew on me more as I worked my way through my glass.

Stunning purplish-red body, massive dense white head, frothy foamy lacing. Nose shows a rich lactic blueberry muffin character. Some oak and must is also present. Flavor is more fruit forward with slightly sweeter blueberry notes controlling. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and nice lactic acidity.

2011 Vintage. Shared with some great friends at our Blueberry tasting event. Poured into a Hill Farmstead glass

A - SRM of 18. Dark red / amber appearance. Bubbly head that fades incredibly fast.

S - Lactic and vinegar scent. Slight hint of blueberries and some tart almost raspberry nose as well.

T - Yeah. Nice pleasant blueberry taste that fades quickly to akin to an apple cider vinegar.Taking a mouthful of it and doing a light swish, I"m picking out more of the sweet blueberry taste.

M - Nice blueberry skin tanning dryness. Super fleeting sweetness. 50/50 carbonation on my mouth swish. Light body and yeah. Super insane dry finish like eating a lot of blueberries.

O - Yeah, the start of this glass was pretty weak and bland and very much an apple cider acidic bomb. Then, as it breathed, the blueberries came out nicely. It’s nice. 89/100. Not fantastic but a solid American Wild beer with a nice Blueberry sweetness.

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.
