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. Pours purple with quickly vanishing pink head. Nose of fresh blueberries, oak, funk, wild yeast and acidic tart blueberry. Taste is same but with a slight bandaid note in the deep background. Still awesome, but I’m glad I drank this now. Medium body. Tartness if very mild and inviting.

750 mL bottle shared at the 9th Richmond Rare & Unusual Epic Tasting, Richmond, VA, 11/30/14. Pours a hazy purple with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of peppery funk, dry tart blueberries. The taste is tart blueberries, fresh blueberries, sweet and funky finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle @ Avery SourFest III. Reddish, somewhat murky appearance with a pink head. Blueberry, hay, straw, somewhat tart aroma. The flavor tasted a little fucked up to me. I didn’t get a ton of blueberry and instead just got a grainy, straw flavor with some other light fruit notes. Disappointing.

hopscotch (10130) - 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!

Sammy (9683) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Not as sour as I expected from Cascade, still very good. cloudy blueberry coloured body with pink head, and lacy. Some hospital disinfectant aroma. Smooth for a sour, more sour in the finish, and in the sediment.

mcberko (9633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Sampled on tap at Cascade Brewpub, pours a mostly clear red with a small beige head. Aroma of pure sour blueberries, sangria and subtle oak barrels. Flavour of sour blueberry puree, with the same notes of sangria, some oak barrels and a tart blueberry finish. Very nicely done.

Dogbrick (9625) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Sample at the Barrel House. Cloudy ruby-brown pour with a medium thin fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of berries and yeast. Medium body with a midly funky undertone and flavors of blueberries, earthy yeast and citrus. The finish is fruity with a mildly tart blueberry aftertaste. Solid all around.

Definitely a great one here. I had it blind, was thinking black currant all the way, but blueberry works too. Nice funk, medium to high sourness.
