Notes/Commercial Description:
Beauregarde is our first ever use of blueberries and we couldn't be happier with how this beer turned out. We added an incredible amount of fruit to our barrel aged, sour blonde ale and the result is just as expected. A lovely shade of reddish purple with flavors of tart blueberries, just in time for summer. Perfect along side a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Review from notes dated 8/2/14

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

A: Cloudy, hazy, range of colors from deep red to apricot to orange, with some pink - small, white head, with hints of more pink - fades to a few wisps

S: Definite berry flesh, nice aroma of blueberry - tart, with some sourness - nicely aged, with some nice wood complexity, but also some fresh fruit aromas

T: Solid spectrum of blueberry flavors - ripe, juicy blueberry skin and flesh - like biting into a fresh berry - nice tartness, nice level of sourness - lactic sour with some nice acidity - some wood - pale malts at the base, finishes with even more blueberry

M: Medium body, low carbonation, smooth, lightly puckering

O: Worth being turned into a blueberry for more of this

While this may not be the best fruit sour I've had, it may just be the best blueberry sour I have ever had. This is worth seeking out.

Poured from the bottle into a taster.

Appeared a dark purple color with minimal head.

Smelled of tart blueberries with a raspberry/blackberry backbone.

Taste was a bit subdued which was nice - not too overpowering with the sourness, not too overpowering with the blueberries...well balanced.

Mouthfeel was light and bubbly.

Overall this one surprised me. It was quite delicious and easy drinking for a sour.
