"Deep purple blue pour. Wonderful aroma and flavor of fresh blueberries, herbal and floral as well. Very fresh tasting, moderately sour. Probably the best blueberry beer I’ve had..."

Bomber. Darker pour. Tart blueberry skin aroma and taste. A bit sweet and jammy, but that gets overshadowed by the tart dark fruit. Good stuff!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! 2011 project. Pours a cloudy ruby grapefruit juice color with a small off-white ring for a head and some big carbonation bubbles throughout. Aroma of blueberries, lemon, oak, funk, 7-Up, and grapefruit peel. Flavor of blueberry, lactic acid, lemon, Sweet Tarts, 7-Up, and yogurt. Light-medium bodied, with high, bubbly carbonation and a very tart, soda-like mouthfeel.

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.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014. Beautiful hazy purple. Genuine raw blueberry character shares equal billing with sourness that is more like unripened berries than anything, along with some subtle funk. A very drinkable sour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting.
Rougeâtre, col blanc léger.
Arôme st fruité avec ce bouquet myrtilles laissant un léger côté fleuri, grains sur une note aigre boisée de chêne.
Palais est ici bien aigre avec le rajout d’une base fruitée légèrement acidulée. Retrouve ce profil typique américain des ’sours’ le tout couplé à une pointe boisée de chêne qui ajoute une certaine complexité et une fine aigreur. Pas mauvaise, mais pas ma préférée de Cascade.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a hazy pinkish red with medium frohthy pink head that lasts. The aroma is a strong tart blueberry and oak. Thin mouthfeel with sour berry, funk, oak. Light acidity, easy to drink, very good.
