This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Another one split with Rudzud due to our membership.

Light fizzy purple head, murky dark mahogany slight reddish blueberry juice.

Nose nice tart sour wild beer, tart fruit, acidic bite, blueberry flesh and light stem tannic, floral wild funk, blueberry pie filling, there's also light grainy blond ale underneath with hints of grainy crust, fairly sweet blueberry candy, nice tartness.

Taste is very sour, very very sour, big tart fruit, acetic acid, nice acidic bite, big blueberry pie, fresh blueberry flesh and skin, blueberry pie filling with light sweet blueberry candy, light stem tannin, nice sour blond ale too, light vinous funk and tart fruit, but plenty of blueberry. Finish is light flemmy, bit sticky syrupy but fairly dry, tart mouth puckering sour blond, plenty more blueberry lingering.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb, light acidic burn.

Overall awesome!

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.
