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.

Theydon_Bois (17639) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Cascade Barrel House PDX, @ 7.66% ABV, 22/05/13. Clear cherry red with a thin white head. Nose is tarte berry fruits, wood notes, light balsams. Taste comprises sour berry fruit, light sugars, funky, oaky notes, tarte blueberry. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sour tarte finish, lightly puckering. Decent but blueberry is never my favourite fruit in a beer, whatever the style.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours a cloudy puprle/red color with a pinkish head. Nose is quite tart and lactic, but also has a nice fruity sweetness to it. Some blueberry, lemon, and oak aromas. Flavor has a bit of sweet fruit jam character. Lemon sourness is quite strong. A pretty decent fruity blueberry flavor along with a light oak and must. Not very funky, but quite dry on the finish.

Light purple-red. Lots of barrel, touch of blueberry, touch yeasty, opening acidity, dash of fruit and almost a yoghurty lacto character.

Bottle. Poured a clear Purple color with a frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, floral and darkfruit aroma.
