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.

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.

TheAlum (6825) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly purple pink hue, healthy glow and richly berry hued body. A frothy offwhite head atop dies to a decent ring, laces ok. Good colors and rich glow. Aromas are richer blueberry, a touch muffiny, quickly moving to sour lemons, sour berries, blueberry, touches of oak, bready malts. A bit pulpy, firm blueberry, a bit fuzzy and well carbonated. Initial is spritzy and prickly, well carbonated on the light end of medium bodied. Pulpy blueberry, lemony sourness, lactic acid, touches of yogurt and fuzzy carbonation hits the palate. Some bready malts, more yogurt, firm sourness blends with blueberry elements, lactic acid. Lemons, touches of fuzzy carbonation. Really enjoyable sour fruit ale, with a firm lactic presence, rich fresh blueberries, vibrant aroma and carbonation. A touch sweeter in flavor.. But overall, a very nice experience.
