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.

2013-02-02. Dark pink purple body with a small pink head. 3++ Pretty interesting aroma, fruity, blueberry, very light funky undertones. 8++ Flavour is similar, modest sourness throughout, tart blueberry and dryish finish. 8+ Average bodied palate with nice carbonation. Lovely stuff! Not super complex but really lets the blueberries shine. They must have used a ton of fruit! Very nice. Bottle at Sourfest, Buffalo

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, big thanks to Caleb for this pour! 2011 bottle. Dark reddish blue with thin bluish red head, aroma brought notes of big blueberry pie, nice funk, cheese, hints of lactic lemon and slight biscuit malt notes. Taste is nice blueberry, sweet vanilla and pie like notes but sours fairly well with a slight funkiness to it, finishing fairly sweet but with a nice dry and lactic note.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beatiful pinkish-red to purple colour, with a brownish haze and a small pinkish rim. Very fruity nose, red fruit, berries, raspberry, blueberry, bilberry. Sourish, faintly woody, faintly lactic. Surplus of fruitacids, and a perfumey finish, very tart. Finish becomes bilberry to me. Hints of lemon and wild yeasts. Light dry-out effect. Long-lasting berry flavours, getting drier and drier. Another little marvel. I can quite dig these sours. Many thanks to M & L V.!
