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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Bruery tulip.

a - Pours a deep, hazy pinkish-purple color with one finger of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Big fan of the color of beers like this; looks great.

s - Smells of sour blueberries, sour dark fruits, lactic notes, spice, some funk, and light earthy and floral notes. Loads of blueberries and very sour; exactly what I was hoping for. The funk is very light, but it is a great smelling beer.

t - Tastes of sour blueberries, tart dark fruits, light funk, oak, lactic notes, spices, yeast, and earthy notes. Taste is extremely sour, mouth puckeringly so. Very nice, though I liked the nose a bit better.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Acidic.

o - Overall I liked this beer a lot; pretty much what I was expecting and hoping for. Loads of sour blueberries and some light funk throughout, glad I have a few bottles of this one. If you like the Bruery's other sour offering and like blueberries than you'll really like this one.

Wow, what a pretty-lookin beer! Pinkish, purple-red, with a very light-pink head. Scent is packed with funk from the moment I opened the cap. Tart, funky barnyard with some sour fruit skin. Blueberries and plums. Some raspberries as well. A strange nail-polish remover aroma, which is slightly off-putting, but just a tiny bit. Taste is sweet blueberries up front, followed by sour raspberries and tart blueberry skin. Super ripe blueberries with other tart berries. Very berry-forward with a nice lactic sourness. Some nice funk in the flavor, just as the nose hinted. Puckering finish. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing, crisp and lip-smacking tart. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this a fantastic sour beer. I definitely picked up on the blueberries, which is very hard to accomplish in sours. Very enjoyable, and glad I have five more bottles.
