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.

Was forced to open this a little sooner than I would've liked, but great sour overall. True blueberry flavor wasn't very apparent, but delicious sour, funk and great carbonation. I'm definitely hoping to have a chance to taste it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (3737) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2017
Provad p MBCC-17. Ett blbrsl som faktiskt smakar blbr!! Blbrssylt/soppa, bjrnbrsgodis syltig med rejl syrlighet bevarad, ltt jordig mgelton som ger viss twist snarare n att stra. Riktigt gott.

piscator34 (2493) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 15, 2017
Draft at the Cascade. Light purple in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of dusty blueberry, cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon wine (oak barrel notes included), and earth. Flavors are of ripe and tart blueberry, more red wine, and shiso mint leaves. Snappy acidity, but the flavors linger for a long time.
