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.

Very tart fruity ale from a large shared bottle. More genetic frruitiness until the aftertaste when the blueberries come out more clearly. Too funky for me

2016-04-11, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy red color. Nice berry aroma. Lean mouthfeel, sour, lemony, with sour berries, nice astringency.
Nice but not much depth.

2015-01-01, draught at Beer Mongers, Portland, as Cascade Blueberry Oak Aged NW Sour, 8-4-7-4-16=39
Cloudy dark red color with pinkish head. Very nice aroma, it’s mild, fruity, sour, a bit yeasty, with some nut kernels that add a layer of complexity, hazelnuts. Smooth and super dry; the fruit is prominent, the acidity level is just right, with lemon qualities, it also has some tannins and mild final astringency. Very pleasant to drink, like a milder Lambic.
Excellent.

750ml bottle pours a hazy purple with some cloudy pink head. Nose is straight blueberry pie, juicy, not too much else, some juicy red wine maybe. Flavor is sweet and tart, berry, some pie, juicy. Medium bodied and lightly tart.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Pink hazy burgundy, little head, fleeting. Aroma is big blueberry far away from the glass. Closer it’s dusty funk and wood, sweet fruit, aromatic and floral. Flavor is fruit sugar juice sweet, light sour, dull lemon end. Feel is water and dusty with tart tickle end. Really easy and enjoyable.

48FanInCali (851) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle. Violet colored pour with no head. Nose of tart blueberries and other fruit. Also some oak and a little bit of band aid funk. Taste follows the nose with a nice fruit skin tartness. Pretty good but not great.

Westchesterco (2043) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Poured from a bottle at a beer tasting in DC at gene’s it is a reddish raspberry color with no head and the aroma has a smell of blueberries And the taste is a sour flavor with a hint of blueberries I am not a big fan of sour beers but this was quite alright since it did have the taste of blueberries as advertised
