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.

Poured from bottle, a slight pink/purple color with a white head. Aroma was slightly tart blueberries, with a dominant blueberry presence in it. A touch of oak I suppose, with a tartness to it.

I had the chance to try this one a lot of times while at Dark Lord Day (the day before and during), and just couldn’t get myself into it as much as my compatriots. It’s well made for sure, but I just personally didn’t dig it as much as the people shoving it my way did. Keeping my eyes open for their beer in the future though!

Bottle, as a road beer at THE Stout Tasting. Cheers to Bruce for sourcing this! The pour’s deep, murky purple with a modest reddish head. The nose is earthy blueberry patch, sweet baked blueberry cake, a bit of woodland funk. The taste is mild lactic funk, plenty of blueberry jam and sweet cake. A bit of general herb. Smooth, lightly tart finish. Nice, bouncy, lively body. Easy to drink. Overall, a nice beer. It’s quite simple, but tasty.

Bottle. Red with pink froth. Big sour nose with blueberry tartness. Starts out surprisingly sweet but quickly switches to sour. Very nice. I find the aftertaste is so strong with the flavours very present that additional sip adds a reduced amount to the senses. Sweetness sets it apart from other sours.

750mL bottle generously shared by PaulUnwin. Cheers, Paul! Pours a hazy reddish color with a white head. Nose is blueberry flesh, slight vinegar, berry skins, a bit of band aid, and some nice sour qualities. Flavor is similar with blueberry flesh, slight dark fruit, small vinegar, some earthy/ band aid flavor, and berry skins with some fruit on the finish. Interesting beer.

This one poured a semi hazy dark blue color with a small pinkish head. Aroma was of blueberry skins, lemons, wood, and hay. Flvor was pretty sour, funk blueberry, and cheesy lemons.

Sample at Stone sour ale fest 2012. Bubbly clear reddish purple pour. Very nice blueberry aroma, mmm fresh blueberry. Flavor is tart lemon, blueberry, grain, and moderate sourness. Nice and refreshing, and not too over the top compared to other cascade sours. It would be great on hot summer day.

Bottle - Blueberry and some yeasty funk. Cloudy reddish pink with a decent white head. Light tartness, light funk and a berry finish. Fairly mild compared to the other sours from Cascade.
