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.

Pours a cloudy puprle/red color with a pinkish head. Nose is quite tart and lactic, but also has a nice fruity sweetness to it. Some blueberry, lemon, and oak aromas. Flavor has a bit of sweet fruit jam character. Lemon sourness is quite strong. A pretty decent fruity blueberry flavor along with a light oak and must. Not very funky, but quite dry on the finish.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle… WPB Town Hall Meeting 2012This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and burnt-orange with a fizzy, periwinkle head that never seems fully dissipates. The bouquet furnishes sweet blueberries intermingled with acidity and a touch of funk. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is tart and fruity with mild tannic bitterness. Fruity, tangy, minerally finish. Kudos to the ever-generous biggsbowler for sharing this beauty!
