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.

Bottle shared at Harvest festival. Purple-blue pour with small head. Blueberries are definitly present in the aroma, very lactic too. Something artificial too I seemed to find in most Cascade beers Ive had. Taste is very lactic and sour. Blueberries are more tamed and you can feel the oak.

Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noams office. Thanks DSG. Pours cherry with a pinkish head, aroma of blueberry, forest of the fruit sweetness, flavor is slightly sour with green tea, fart and wood, medium bodied.

Tap at Cascade Barrel House. 2014. Deep blueberry-stained red, cream foam. Waxy aroma, touch of earthy sour. Fruit skin. Best of the pure fruits on this night. But Id be hard-pressed to say blueberry blind.

ClubGonzo (5648) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ Kraddels TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. So this is the U.S. answer to Cantillon? Lets see. Pours a deep hazy purple body with a small light pink head. Aroma is tart blueberry tones, horseblanket, hints of lemon and citric zest notes. Taste is blueberries, smokey meat tones, hints of tart horsey barnyard notes and dark berries. Medium to thin body, high carbonation. A nice sour; not quite par with good ol Cantillon but a pretty good attempt nevertheless.

JohnnyJ (5539) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Sample at Stone sour ale fest 2012. Bubbly clear reddish purple pour. Very nice blueberry aroma, mmm fresh blueberry. Flavor is tart lemon, blueberry, grain, and moderate sourness. Nice and refreshing, and not too over the top compared to other cascade sours. It would be great on hot summer day.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Clear bright red with a small foamy pink head. Sweet blueberry, tart lemon and sour apple aroma. Bright lively palate. Tastes of lemon up front followed by lightly sugary blueberry flavors and finishing with acidic sour fruit flavors and a very dry finish. Very good.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
2012 project. Une robe violace. Un nez de barrique de vin rouge, de notes lactiques et actiques avec une bonne base douce de bleuets. Une bouche aigre, fruite et spontane. Jaime bien lquilibre des saveurs. Elles ne sont jamais dans lexcs. Une qualit apprciable. Une bouche huileuse qui montre une quantit apprciable de bulles bien fines. Une finale extra sche. Une excessive buvabilit.

Poured a deep purple color with aromas of blueberries, light wet oak, some tartness, and a touch of vinegar. Flavors matched the aromas, tart blueberries, funk and some light wet wood, enjoybale and really drinkable.

750mL bottle generously shared by PaulUnwin. Cheers, Paul! Pours a hazy reddish color with a white head. Nose is blueberry flesh, slight vinegar, berry skins, a bit of band aid, and some nice sour qualities. Flavor is similar with blueberry flesh, slight dark fruit, small vinegar, some earthy/ band aid flavor, and berry skins with some fruit on the finish. Interesting beer.
