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.

Bottle. Clear bright red with a small foamy pink head. Sweet blueberry, tart lemon and sour apple aroma. Bright lively palate. Tastes of lemon up front followed by lightly sugary blueberry flavors and finishing with acidic sour fruit flavors and a very dry finish. Very good.

jackl (5466) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
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.

Courtesy of 5000 via trade.

Bottle: The aroma consists of blueberries and just a touch of lemon. It pours a mostly transparent purplish-red with a touch of haze and a minimal head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of blueberry. The finish has light-moderate musty lemon and some light funk. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5311) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a very dark plum-blood red color with a medium sized foamy pink head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was funky, tart, sour, vague berries, pepper and Sweettart candies. the flavor was dry, tart and sour with funk, chalk and strong tart berries. Very long dry, tart and sour berry and funk finish. Medium body. Interesting.

Bottle sampled at Muckfest III. Pours a clear reddish purple color with a thin head. Aroma of blueberries, malt and tartness. Malty flavor turning to blueberry pie before a tart finish. Very nice.

@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Clear bright red, as of it’s a classic Kriek. Aroma is funky wood and pale grains with a touch of fresh blueberries. Taste is nice and clean, medium sour and not too fruity. Notes of blueberry but also funky wood yeast. Big but restrained and fruity but not too much. Nice sweet/ sour balance.
