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.

I adore blueberries. This brew is so good in blueberry aroma. Some basement aroma that was real enjoyable as well. The flavor is verity tart and tons of blueberr. Some back end oak and cedar. Perfect brew.

Perfect blueberry sour, fresh blueberries with and old oak nose, great how they can do that. Flavor of cedar oak and blueberries, nice minimal carbonation. Perfect sour

Really great blueberries, residual oak with very slight candy. Enjoyed the tart candy balance. Better job on this tan the apricot. Some wine cellar funk, enjoyed the tart and blueberry balance.

Smells like a fresh pint of blueberries. A deep purple with white ring of head. It starts off very tart acidic blue berries then moves to fresh fruit blue berries. Then the sour grows a buttery dough taste that bring the whole thing to a wonderful blueberry pie flavor to the end.

Brilliant vinous blueberry aroma. Flavor is blueberry sour, but not sweet. Blueberry sweetness is fermented away. Vinous is a 7 or 8 out of 10. Slight bitter aftertaste after the sour, but overall this one is great!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at the barrel house and I couldnt get enough of it. Aroma is blue berry crisp a-la mode with vanilla and spcices and rich blueberries. Taste is much of the same with medium sweetness and a great light tart bite that keeps you thirsty. What an amazing brew and give me more!!!

Deep red blue color with a moderate pink tan head that lingers nicely much more retention than most sours.. Aroma is funk berries or funkberries... Touch of lemon aroma... Sickly legit... Flavor is funk tart up front and finishes as lightly sweet fresh blueberries... Medium bodied... Masterfully crafted... Wow... It’s not complex in the flavor profile as it finishes, but up front it is... Wow...
