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 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5658) - 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. 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.

Pours reddish with a smooth head. Aroma of tart berries, wood, some oak, sourish notes and vinegar. Taste is smooth and sourish with some tart blueberries, vinegar and oak. Finish is tartish and slick with mild sourness. Okay.

750ml shared by Madvike. Purple red, deep. Oily, thin head. Juicy, fruity. Some of that test tube US action, but juicy and nice, real fruity depth. Captures a mellow enjoyability not found in most US sours.

Huge thanks to barleywinefiend for snagging this growler and getting it to drabmuh and I, thus setting up the Cascade sour tasting. Served in a Cascade Barrel House goblet. Pours a beautiful deep blue with some hints of violet. Nice white head with a bit of faded blue mixed in. Fantastic coloring. The nose carries a bit of acidity paired with really bright, fresh notes of blueberry and accompanying skin. Very light earthiness there as well. The blueberry aspect continues through the flavor. There’s so much depth just from the blueberries. Such a great berry to use with a sour and, in my opinion, far superior to the typical choice of raspberry. I was ecstatic to hear that Cascade was going to be releasing bottles of this. Behind the blueberry, there is moderate acidity. The body is crisp with clean acidity and a dry, sour finish. Good carbonation. This is an impressive beer and one that I hope becomes a regular offering in Cascade’s fruited sour rotation.

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.

bytemesis (4937) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish blue with a medium punk fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is tart, funk, lemon, fruit. Flavor is the same, light tart, little sweetness, blueberry coming through on the dry finish. Medium body, very carbonated, aerated mouthfeel. Nice.

Pours mahogany blue into a snifter. White micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Blueberry and oak aromas. Sharp with sweet blueberry and tart lactic notes. Dry lasting blueberry powder finish.
