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.

Was forced to open this a little sooner than I would've liked, but great sour overall. True blueberry flavor wasn't very apparent, but delicious sour, funk and great carbonation. I'm definitely hoping to have a chance to taste it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Violet colored pour with no head. Nose of tart blueberries and other fruit. Also some oak and a little bit of band aid funk. Taste follows the nose with a nice fruit skin tartness. Pretty good but not great.

Westchesterco (1252) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Poured from a bottle at a beer tasting in DC at gene’s it is a reddish raspberry color with no head and the aroma has a smell of blueberries And the taste is a sour flavor with a hint of blueberries I am not a big fan of sour beers but this was quite alright since it did have the taste of blueberries as advertised

krumbum (650) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 16, 2015
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.

Gerbeer (2273) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
750 ml bottle. 2014 project. Pours a dark red/amber with moderate pinkish head. Aromas of earthy berries, wet wood, and wheat. Flavors of berry jam, chalk, wood, and cereal. Tart, especially on the finish, but not overly so. Very nice.

This is good as an oak aged sour, but other than in the appearance, I could hardly tell that is was a blueberry beer.

Tap at Cascade Barrel House. 2014. Deep blueberry-stained red, cream foam. Waxy aroma, touch of earthy sour. Fruit skin. Best of the pure fruits on this night. But I’d be hard-pressed to say blueberry blind.
