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.

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a sexy purple maroon topped with a small pink ring of a head. Great big blueberries vanilla barrel pucker tartness. Taste is more of the heavy blueberries tart pucker note vanilla barrel and a bit of booze.

MelvinKalksma (875) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, berries and acidity.

Appearance:
Turbid red beer with a slight/medium pink head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood and berries; ends slightly/medium dry and sour with acidity.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The spiced quad is almost completely gone in favour of the wooden blueberry flavour. Cascade is amazing in creating these complex sour beers, holy shiy.

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.

On tap at OIBF’16. This was a whole different ballgame. Reddish brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of blueberries, raspberries, battery acid, oak, malts, wood. Flavour is quite fruity but also very sour, acidic, lots of berries, wood, some sweet malts, oak, tart finish. Medium bodied. Too sour for me, didn’t like this.
