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.

It pours sort of dirty rutty red copper with thin off white head, cool looking brew. The aroma offers up tartness o-plenty along with thin whiffs of vague fruitiness almost too far away to smell. The taste is similar as this is largely acidic, dry mineral notes and crushed aspirin tartness. I suppose, like the nose, there are light vaguely fruity notes off in the distance that Iím having trouble seeing or tasting, so thereís that.

Had both the older releases and the new Shrieking Violet on tap. Both were good. The aroma is sweet berries alongside vinous, woody notes. The flavor is borderline very sour at times with sawdust and light sour blueberry. Very odd but in a good way. Not a fruit beer per se, more oak and tannins. Quite nice.

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 doesnít have the massive fruit punch of a Belgian Red, but this is still tasty and definitely worth trying.

Bottle. Pours almost purple, or maybe Iím just imagining that. Medium acidity, some solid blueberry sweetness, just a hint of funk, light candy sweetness, and a little tartness in the finish. Solid.

Bottle to snifter (brew3crew). Looks good; you can see the blueberry notes. Smells great; sour and fruity. Tastes good, but I think it will get better with age. Mouthfeel is good. Hella-tasty.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, J&A! Pours a dark rubied amber with a dense and fizzy pink head that falls quickly away. Funky barnyard on the nose with a tinge of tart berry. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Oak and balsamic on the mid-palate with a dry, oaky, slightly minerally finish. Pretty good.
