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.

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.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours reddish purple with an off-white head, The aroma has blueberries pomegranate, red wine and bits of funk. It has a medium crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with tart blueberries, alcohol, barrel and other red berry flavors. The finish has the heavy fruit and adds a nice oak element. Quite nice.

Draught 2013 project. Pours a brownish purple color with a huge pinkish white head on it. Nose is definitely sour with a surprising amount of blueberry in there. Taste is actually a bit sweet up front, though the sourness really comes through. Lots of blueberry, and feels very bubbly as well.
