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.

TheAlum (7106) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly purple pink hue, healthy glow and richly berry hued body. A frothy offwhite head atop dies to a decent ring, laces ok. Good colors and rich glow. Aromas are richer blueberry, a touch muffiny, quickly moving to sour lemons, sour berries, blueberry, touches of oak, bready malts. A bit pulpy, firm blueberry, a bit fuzzy and well carbonated. Initial is spritzy and prickly, well carbonated on the light end of medium bodied. Pulpy blueberry, lemony sourness, lactic acid, touches of yogurt and fuzzy carbonation hits the palate. Some bready malts, more yogurt, firm sourness blends with blueberry elements, lactic acid. Lemons, touches of fuzzy carbonation. Really enjoyable sour fruit ale, with a firm lactic presence, rich fresh blueberries, vibrant aroma and carbonation. A touch sweeter in flavor.. But overall, a very nice experience.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle: Pours violet, definite pinkish hue, moderate to thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing. Aroma of unripened Blueberries, well at least Blueberry bushes. Its like unsweetened immature Blueberries. Tart on the tongue up front, backside is dry with a soft unripened Blueberry sweetness. Very clean this is. Comes across as very dry and very tart. Nothing off about this one. Not as big and robust as some of their other offerings, but it is certainly tart, fruity, and mouth puckering. Strong woodiness on the nose as well as on the tongue. I keep thinking to myself how clean this one is. The more I drink, the more I realize how dry this one is. My mouth is very much puckering after a few sips. While the Blueberry aspect is there, its not as strong as I would have liked. Either way, this is a very clean and well put together PNW sour ale. Comes across as very clean and very easy to drink. Easily one of the better Blueberry beers I have had, ever!

AirForceHops (6687) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2013
750 ml bottle split with Adam Jackson. 2012 vintage. Poured a hazy purple color with thin white head. Nose is mostly tart berries and light lacto. Taste is fresh blueberries initially then transitions to tart puckering wheat notes. Some Earthy notes and light booze. Light to medium body with a dry tart finish. Acidic and lightly sharp after taste. This is a beautiful sour and would love to grab a bottle and sit on it to see how it changes. Awesome!
