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.

Bottle. Hazy to cloudy off pink color. Aroma has berries, citrus. Taste is very tart, balsamic berries and fruit. Too acidic for me.

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.

Location: Bottle shared by dbarnold, 9/25/14

Aroma: The aroma is fairly tart, the blueberries are present, but not overpowering
Appearance: Pours a hazy purple-reddish color with a beige head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is tart and a little sweet with a nice malty component and some oak as well
Palate: The body is medium, with a pretty good mouthfeel, and a clean, tart finish
Overall Impression: Thanks Dave! I enjoyed this one. The blueberry component works nicely without killing the beer with sweetness. Well done.

"Another nice sour from the Bruery. Lots like Sans Paigie in look, feel, and maybe base...aggressive lemony sourness, lactic feel. The blueberries are maybe a touch better in this particular format than the cherries, but pretty comparable. Juuuust enough sweet to cut through the sour and tart. Lasting impression. I hope I get this again."

DesertDevil (555) - Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2014
2013 bottle. Lactic acid is the dominant aroma and it’s joined by tart blueberries and balsamic vinegar. Pours a gorgeously clear medium purple. Nice acidic taste of lactic, dry oak and very tart blueberry with a bone-dry finish. Light body, prickly texture. A darn good fruit sour.

ineedbeer (892) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Poured from a 750mL bottle. Aroma is fairly fruity with a nice blueberry character. Light acidity with a nice, light oak character. Some raspberry and cassis notes as well with a hint of tropical fruit. Pours a somewhat clear, reddish copper color with a small, moderately thick, slight tan head that recedes quickly to the edges. Flavor is moderately acidic with a nice lactic character and a hint of acetic acid. Medium light notes of blueberry with some other berry notes. Light oak character and a hint of tannins. Faint tropical fruit and faint bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice sour beer with a good berry character. Blueberry notes are nice, but not super jammy and overpowering. Decent, complimentary oak notes.

750 ml bottle to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; a cloudy blueberry flesh with very light pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; blueberries and a bit of funk. Tastes like it smells with a nice, tart mouthfeel.What seems to be some lacto. Good stuff.

Bottle thanks to John. Hockey Pool box. Pours hazy reddish purpose with pink white head. Nose/taste of blueberry, oak, lacto and vinegar tartness and puckering acid. A bit too sour for my preferences. Lighter medium body.
