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.

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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep violet colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, pinkish purple head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is rich blueberries with a nice tartness, wheat malts with a light sweetness, florals, some funk, and a light wood. Flavor is similar. Blueberries with a light sweetness and wheat note, a moderate sourness, a light funk, some florals, and wood. Finishes dry, tart, fruity, and lightly sweet before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a somewhat lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid sour. Lots of blueberries with a nice tartness, some florals, wheat, and a light woody funk. Nice beer.

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

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.

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!

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!

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.
