COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW-style sour ale is no wallflower. It started as a strong spiced quad that was barrel aged for 21 months, then aged for another 6 months on blueberries. Huge herbal notes of dense blueberries in the nose give way to hints of oak and leather. Rich, earthy notes of dark fruit on the palate yield to a rich, velvety finish that dries out to a base note of blueberry skins. This is a single barrel project.

Really nice sour ale. Super rich, a little Worcestershire, a lot of cherry and plum, some light bitterness. Most sweet, though, from start to finish. Tried at the Oedipus International beer festival with Dave in 2016.

van de tap bij OIBF, diep paarse kleur met een mooie roze kraag. Heerlijk fruitige bessen geur en smaak met een mooie balans tussen fruitigheid en het zuur, zo als een goede roze zou moten smaken.

Sourish-fruity, slightly sweetish taste of raspberries, blueberry, some vinegar and some oak, followed by a medium long, moderately tart finish. Medium body, slightly astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!
