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.

4.58/5  rDev +6.5%

750 ml capped bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
5.3% ABV, 2013 edition (05/09/13), "best enjoyed fresh."

A - Purple-ish ruby-hued, Beauregarde pours hazy and complete with a pink-tinted cap of foam that fizzles away to a loose ring of bubbles with little lace in it's wake.

S - Sour wild funk is almost eye-watering in this sharp aroma, rich with lactic acidity cutting through crisp pale malt and undertones of crushed blueberries.

T - Tart blueberries and semi-sweet malt washes over the tongue but its presence is cut short by sharp and funky yeast and acidity that lingers on the tongue with commanding presence.

M - The combination of both tart and sour make for a wonderful experience as this highly carbonated beer dances on the tongue, puckering the mouth and finishing very dry.

O - While I can imagine the presence and overall fruitiness the blueberries add when the beer is fresh, Beauregarde is still a delicious and intriguing beer even after a year. Its got plenty of sour power with acidic and funky yeast but bright and drinkable regardless.

A -Dark raspberry color with a nice plum head

S - Blueberry, tart raspberry, lactic acid, slight balsamic vinegar.

T -Tart raspberry with a good lactic acid presence. Has a bit of the creamy butter presence that you find in a lot of Bruery sours. Light tart raspberry near the end

M - Good carbonation, medium body with a dry finish to it.

O - Don't get much blueberry as it reminds me of a raspberry beer crossed with the buttery Bruery presence to it. Decent but not that great.

Good beer. The blueberries, for me, were most noticeable on the finish and were very pure in flavor and added a nice bit of complexity to this sour ale. The beer reminded me of Oude Tarte in terms of acidity and mouthfeel, but with a bit more lift and freshness. Good beer.
