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.

jercraigs (11095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
2013-02-02. Dark pink purple body with a small pink head. 3++ Pretty interesting aroma, fruity, blueberry, very light funky undertones. 8++ Flavour is similar, modest sourness throughout, tart blueberry and dryish finish. 8+ Average bodied palate with nice carbonation. Lovely stuff! Not super complex but really lets the blueberries shine. They must have used a ton of fruit! Very nice. Bottle at Sourfest, Buffalo

onceblind (10896) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Clear bright red, as of it’s a classic Kriek. Aroma is funky wood and pale grains with a touch of fresh blueberries. Taste is nice and clean, medium sour and not too fruity. Notes of blueberry but also funky wood yeast. Big but restrained and fruity but not too much. Nice sweet/ sour balance.

DuffMan (10773) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014. Beautiful hazy purple. Genuine raw blueberry character shares equal billing with sourness that is more like unripened berries than anything, along with some subtle funk. A very drinkable sour.

3.4
cubs (10742) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle @ Avery SourFest III. Reddish, somewhat murky appearance with a pink head. Blueberry, hay, straw, somewhat tart aroma. The flavor tasted a little fucked up to me. I didn’t get a ton of blueberry and instead just got a grainy, straw flavor with some other light fruit notes. Disappointing.

2.5
tderoeck (10639) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2013
22/IV/13 - 750ml bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-351) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy nice ruby red to pinkish purple beer, big aery pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of fruit, very funky, actually not so pleasant. Lemony, orange flavoured vitamin effervescent tablets, pretty bad. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Tasty: same orange flavoured vitamin tablets, lemony, orange peel, very sour. Aftertaste: bitter as well, sour, dry, tannins, lemony. Not a big fan of this.
