The Bruery
California, United States | website

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

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.

750mL shared 4 ways at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Musty, chalky magenta with a light and airy white head that peaks at a finhger before falling to the barest ring.

Pungent oak and busting out of the gates acidity. Blueberry is quite pronounced. Faint hint of nail polish remover.

Taste is tangy, zesty, and sherbety. So much so that the blueberry component is more fuzzy than focused. Nice, but not a complex flavour profile.

Thick, buzzy with modest but asertive carbonation. The oaky edges allay the sourness and any potential for harshness at the finish.

Solid and enjoyable, but it's conspicuously another product of the Bruery's well-worn oaked-sour template. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just becoming a bit familiar.

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.
