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.

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... Its not complex in the flavor profile as it finishes, but up front it is... Wow...

Aroma smell like a young gueuze, with that ominous playful stank, horse blanket with some blueberry coming through. The beer is eggplant in color ith a pink whit head. Taste is an incredible balance between o upright funk and really vivid blueberry. Just amazing. One of my all time favorites.

On tap at the Raccoon Lodge and Brewpub in Portland, OR. Surprisingly reddish colored pour. The aroma is very much blueberry. The taste is incredible tart blueberry and really does not leave room for much else. Tart, refreshing, and just outstanding. Great beer!

Definitely a great one here. I had it blind, was thinking black currant all the way, but blueberry works too. Nice funk, medium to high sourness.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Thanks thomas15 for sharing. Poured from 750mL a deep purple/red with a bubble gum pink head. Smells of pure funk with slight blueberry. Tastes the same as it smells but with a nice tart finish. Fantastic sour.
