3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

Bottle courtesy of one of the Half Time guys (Ed possibly, though it could have been Matt or John. But not Craig. Definitely not Craig) in the HT suite at TAPNY. Pours a pink to purple color with a thin white head. Sour fruit on the nose, funk, acid and blueberry. Sweet with some big fat dusty blueberries in there. Long acid, big blueberries. Amazing. Light dusty blueberry lingering on the finish.

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.!

"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..."

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a slightly hazy reddish purple color with a small off white head. The aroma has a nice blueberry fruit character, mildly tart, woody, mild acidity, some earthy notes and light funk. The flavor is moderate blueberry fruit, wood, lightly acidic, mildly tart with some earthy qualities. This is not overly sour and doesn’t have the massive fruit punch of a Belgian Red, but this is still tasty and definitely worth trying.
