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.

hopscotch (10563) - 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!

adnielsen (10475) - 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.
