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.

Deep red blue color with a moderate pink tan head that lingers nicely much more retention than most sours.. Aroma is funk berries or funkberries... Touch of lemon aroma... Sickly legit... Flavor is funk tart up front and finishes as lightly sweet fresh blueberries... Medium bodied... Masterfully crafted... Wow... It’s not complex in the flavor profile as it finishes, but up front it is... Wow...

Draught @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017 - Green Session
Pours dark red with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, tart, funk, berry and blueberries. Taste is light sweet and medium sour with a long dry, tart, funky and berry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Nische (2523) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2017
Backlog. Deep, clear, purple with almost no head. Lots of blueberry, blackberry, some earthy and woody character to it. Lightly bitter towards the finish. Very dry and tart.

agl108 (1306) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2017
On draft at Caliente. Poured deep purple with no head. Appeared flat, but lively carbonation on the tongue. Big oak. Earthy. Then blueberry tart finish. Good but a touch disappointed after long awaiting a Cascade sour.

Fat på MBCC 2017. Vintage 2016. Smak och doft av blåbär, björnbär, jordkällare, blåbärssoppa, mögel, halm, jord. Fina aromer i elegant balans, fin kropp och sötma, god beska. Mycket bra!

Vintage 2012. Bardzo borówkowe, sporo też wanilii. Rasowo też śmierdzi, jest dużo stajennych klimatów. Fajny aftertaste, drewniane ściąganie połączone z lekkim rozgrzewaniem od alkoholu i przyjemnym migdałowym posmakiem. Bardzo wymagający kwas.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Tap (Alus Celle, Riga) 2014 vintage (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Pleasant berry aroma, tart, sourish, a bit oxidised. Harsh acidic bite. Berry skins taste. Sweetish but a bit vinegary. Grows on me - I popped the points up a couple of times.
