Cask at Cascade. Pours a bright ruby color with a medium white head. A big woody nose of blueberries, some oak and sour almost aggressive notes. The flavor is similar with tart berries, wood, vanilla, tannins, almost acidic but overall the full picture is only moderately sour. Maybe some vinegar. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Cascade, pours an opaque ruby red with a tiny head. Aroma of potent blueberries, followed by oak and some tartness. Flavour brings out potent blueberries, followed by notes of vanilla, oak, and a little treacly sweetness. The sourness is medium for Cascade, and the complexity is very high. High drinkability, even though there is a warming effect. Wonderful concoction.

On tap at Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2013. Like the normal blueberry, but with more blueberry and more oak. This is exactly what the blueberry should have been. Herbal, leafy blueberry on the nose, and big tart fruit in the flavor. Really nice.
