Aroma smell like a young gueuze, with that ominous playful stank, horse blanket with some blueberry coming through. The beer is eggplant in color ith a pink whit head. Taste is an incredible balance between o upright funk and really vivid blueberry. Just amazing. One of my all time favorites.

750 mL bottle shared by me at Gus's house for a tasting. 2014 vintage. The pour is a bright ruby color
With a thin ring of white head and some decent lace. The aroma is great blueberry with a lovely sour character and a delightful oak complexity. The wood adds a great character. The flavor is really good. Sour up front but then it mellows out to a blueberry sweetness on the back end. The fruit is great and the oak adds such a mellowing tone. I wish this was more sour throughout. The mouth feel is thin and crisp. Greatly acidic first and just lovely. Carbonation is sharp and it has an oaky acidic finish. Good beer

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is sour, blueberry. Appearance is maroon, off white head. Taste is sour, then fades to blueberry, finishes minty. Mouthfeel is sour, very crisp carbonation and decent mouthfeel. Overall, pretty decent for someone not a fan of the style.

750 ml bottle at home. Pours mucky red with a purple hue, quickly dissapearing head. Very tart and jammy forest fruit aroma, some little nut as well. Lactic. Sour body, backed with a decent dose of sweetness. Taste is raspberry jam mixed with lemon juice. Tart and sour yes, balanced no.

This one pours a dark berry pour. Very subtle blueberry nose. Sharp carbonation. A deep blueberry flavor. Tart tingle on tongue that stays juicy and dry. Good stuff. Love the berry acidity. Good stuff.

The best sours this side of Bermuda. Only down side is huge money for this 750 bottle....forty bucks ouch. Never the less worth it as it has so much going on. Huge blueberry aroma off the start. Poured light light red, may be dark orange Light head. Flavors of everything, from hay, barnyard freshh blueberries and ending of very tart acids. After all that the blueberries cruise back in for the finish line. A+

Very tart fruity ale from a large shared bottle.
More genetic frruitiness until the aftertaste when the blueberries come out more clearly.
Too funky for me

Draught at Beer Mongers, Portland, as Cascade Blueberry Oak Aged NW Sour
Cloudy dark red color with pinkish head. Very nice aroma, it’s mild, fruity, sour, a bit yeasty, with some nut kernels that add a layer of complexity, hazelnuts. Smooth and super dry; the fruit is prominent, the acidity level is just right, with lemon qualities, it also has some tannins and mild final astringency. Very pleasant to drink, like a milder Lambic.
