Another brand new sour ale! Beauregarde is our first ever use of blueberries and we couldn’t be happier with how this beer turned out. We added an incredible amount of fruit to our barrel aged, sour blonde ale and the result is just as expected. A lovely shade of reddish purple with flavors of tart blueberries, just in time for summer. Perfect along side a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

The rare Bruery sour that meets or exceeds expectations! Blueberry flavor very prevalent, tartness restrained, color beautiful. An impressive beer.

illidurit (2230) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle shared at Sante. Pours reddish purple with a pink head. Aroma is pretty nice, with fresh vivid blueberries, lemon and raspberry. Flavor is harsher, vinegar and green apple but still decently fruity and lactic.

PartyFowle (487) - - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle into a tulip. Mostly opaque mauve. A thin bit of silky, pinkish fizz. Sweet blueberry in the aroma. Barnyard funk, touch of vinegar, green apple. Smooth, balanced aroma. Not much blueberry in the flavor. Mostly pure sourness. Vinegar. Lemon, green apple. Tart. Bracingly sour. Touch of funk. Medium light body, big bubbled carbonation. Fizzes up in the mouth. Tartness is huge, lingers. Good flavor, great sourness. Just need more showing from the blueberries so prevalent in the aroma and color.

Bottle. Fresh blueberries and lactic malt aroma. Cloudy purple with minimal head. Sour lactic blueberry malt and mild hay flavor. Dry finish. Pleasantly blended.

dogfishho (656) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
Nicely balanced, but one-dimensional. Fermented berries and citric tartness dominate both the palate and the nose. If you like that, you’ll like it.

Travlr (15204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Hazy to cloudy off pink color. Aroma has berries, citrus. Taste is very tart, balsamic berries and fruit. Too acidic for me.

Shared 2013 bottle. Pours clear pinkish amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is bready malts, fresh blueberries, good floral character, and good funk. Flavor is outstanding with great sour notes, fresh blueberries, and a solid tart palate. Light body and medium carbonation.

BBB63 (6396) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Backlogged rating, summer of 2013: Slightly hazy deep golden hue with purplish highlights with fizzy head. Tart berries (not really blueberry but a combination to various berries), touch of lemon tart, a bit of tannic barrel and earthy minerals leading to a quick dash of spices. Nice and refreshing but I wanted a true Blueberry flavor, not a mish mash.

2013 Vintage
Tasted on 8/31/13 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours deep garnet red with an average pink head that leaves thin, spotty lace. The nose is sour with blueberry skin, plenty of earthy funk, and some very light nutty and oaky vanilla oak and malt. The flavor is dominated by intense sourness with the blueberry skin, funk, malt, and oak all in the background but adding complexity. The body is fairly light with plenty of blueberry skin and oak tannin, and a long intensely sour fruity finish.
