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.

Deep red blue color with a moderate pink tan head that lingers nicely much more retention than most sours.. Aroma is funk berries or funkberries... Touch of lemon aroma... Sickly legit... Flavor is funk tart up front and finishes as lightly sweet fresh blueberries... Medium bodied... Masterfully crafted... Wow... It’s not complex in the flavor profile as it finishes, but up front it is... Wow...

2013 very sour and the bad isvinegar notes. Nose is pleasing sour. Average head. But this is an off beer and unpleasant. Pass

Habanero (4035) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2016
Bottled. Pours hazy deep red with a small pinkish head. Aroma of funk, blueberies, herbal notes, dark fruit wood and vanilla notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up being dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Sour indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

3-year-old bottle shared with Jacob.

Light purple pour, quite dry, deeply sour but clean sour rather than funky sour in exactly the expected fashion, blueberries there but not overbearing. Quite tasty but miles short of blabeer.

Thanks to Matt for this one! Vintage 2012. Liquide mi bleuté, mi rouge, trouble et sans mousse. Notes douces au nez plus que aigres. Je suis surpris. Agréablement. Une quantité de confiture de bleuets (celle que l’on utilise pour faire de la tarte). Un baril généreux et et une présence très modérée de cette acétone que mes narines ont souvent détecté dans les bières de cette brasserie. L’équilibre se retrouve encore une fois en bouche. L’acidité est bien modérée et le fruit très ample et abondant. Cette fois, le bleuet finit par passer pour du cassis et de la framboise. Non pas qu’il soit dénaturé, mais simplement riche et complexe. Pétillante et bien légère. De loin ma bière préférée de cette brasserie qui manque souvent trop de raffinement à mon goût.

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
750ml corked bottle pours a reddish brown color when held to the light with a fizzy white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is of dark fruit and musty yeast notes with hints of wood. Taste is a big tartness from the fruit and a malty sweetness underneath, finishing with a bit of yeast funk. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a very sour ale that takes some getting used to. Burns on the way down, but still a quality brew.

Bottle at Sparkling City on Tap. Dark reddish purplish body with small off-white/pinkish head. Aroma of sour fruit, blueberries and a hint of oak. Medium bodied and a touch dry. Fruity and sour tasting, but also sweet. Very nice.
