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. Pours cloudy reddish blue with a medium punk fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is tart, funk, lemon, fruit. Flavor is the same, light tart, little sweetness, blueberry coming through on the dry finish. Medium body, very carbonated, aerated mouthfeel. Nice.

3/15/16. 750mL bottle from Craft on Draft. Dark blue/purple pour with a small, fizzy pinkish purplish head that sizzles away fast. The look plus my color blindness sorta makes it look like a glass of Diet Coke... but of course purple/blue when I look closer. Annnnnnyway... huge sour aroma, on par with other Cascades, leaning a bit towards acetic, though, tannic berries and dark fruits. Big sour flavor, acidic, citric, lactic, and acetic, etc. Blueberry, dark fruits, oak and vanilla, a touch musty, lingers very sour and dry.

It pours sort of dirty rutty red copper with thin off white head, cool looking brew. The aroma offers up tartness o-plenty along with thin whiffs of vague fruitiness almost too far away to smell. The taste is similar as this is largely acidic, dry mineral notes and crushed aspirin tartness. I suppose, like the nose, there are light vaguely fruity notes off in the distance that I’m having trouble seeing or tasting, so there’s that.

Bottle shared with some dads. Pours a purple pink body with nice lacing. Aroma is tart blueberry. Mouthfeel is medium and tart with light funk, lots of blueberries and some tart candy in the background. Pretty straight forward blueberry sour ale.
