4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… WPB Town Hall Meeting 2012… This 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!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

750mL shared at CBC thanks to CBX crew! Pours a fully hazy purple with acid cut foam. Saltwater, cotton candy, kiwi, and phenolic nose. Loads of cotton candy. Taste is lactic, acetic blend with blueberry PIE dessert. Yummy yum yum.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 My Bottom Line:
Silken blueberry juice and mineral angles delve into intelligent acidity in this soft and bubbly creation.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the purplish gown.
-Blueberry flavors are well integrated.
-Drinkability is quite high; this is an elegant drink.
-Bacterial complexity roams within, giving depth to the fruitiness.
-A more recent batch (2014) had an atrocious nose of Antiphlogistine, green peppers atop the lactic fruitiness. Hard to understand why they put this batch out...Rating dropped from 4.1 to 3.5 to average things out.

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.
