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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful light brownish rose color with an off white pinkish head. Aroma is mildly sweet, tart blonde ale. Flavor packs a solid sour punch that transforms into a sweet middle and a slightly astringent finish. Overall a very nice sour.

The aroma of blueberries. The taste is of blueberries but also some watery. Good bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Good beer but also moderately acidic. Liked this much. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

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
