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.

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.

"Deep purple blue pour. Wonderful aroma and flavor of fresh blueberries, herbal and floral as well. Very fresh tasting, moderately sour. Probably the best blueberry beer I’ve had..."

Pours mahogany blue into a snifter. White micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Blueberry and oak aromas. Sharp with sweet blueberry and tart lactic notes. Dry lasting blueberry powder finish.

Bacterial (1552) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2014
2011 vintage. Beautiful purple pour, just a hint of cloudiness and a billowy white head. Blueberry and oak in the nose. Sour in a mellow way - not as bracingly sour like some of the Cascade beers can be. Dry finish. Earthy and musty blueberry tannin finish. Yummy.

bleeng (1522) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
bottle. Pours dark red. Nose is tart and fruity. Tons of fruit plus a nice tartness. Delicious.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Light purple-red. Lots of barrel, touch of blueberry, touch yeasty, opening acidity, dash of fruit and almost a yoghurty lacto character.

DuffMan (6739) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014. Beautiful hazy purple. Genuine raw blueberry character shares equal billing with sourness that is more like unripened berries than anything, along with some subtle funk. A very drinkable sour.

dfearnley (965) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle to goblet at RBAG14 Oh yeah, blueberry and lemon. Cloudy cranberry, no head. Taste is cranberry and a bit of blueberry.

Ferris (4137) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle - Blueberry and some yeasty funk. Cloudy reddish pink with a decent white head. Light tartness, light funk and a berry finish. Fairly mild compared to the other sours from Cascade.
