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 into a matching Bruery snifter. The brew appears a hazy purple ruby color with a mildly pink stained head. Pretty solid retention for a sour, the finger of froth fades leaving some spotty lace and a swirl effortlessly revives it.

The aroma is fruity sour that is mostly lactic with a mild funk appeal. Trace amounts of neutral wood emit from the glass as well as sulfur when swirled.

The taste is very tart with lemony lactic quality that mostly suggests strong greek yogurt. A little bit of backend mild funk. I has some earthen property with a trace amount of raw oakiness.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is interesting and enjoyable. Surprisingly, I served this one a little too cold and while allowing it to warm up, it really didnt evolve much. I enjoyed the subtle fruity touch and was impressed it did mot display any phenolics or mild plastic suggestions that are sometimes associated with blueberry usage.

Yay for people having extra allotments!

A-Cloudy ruby pink, weel carbonated, one finger pink head that doesn't last long.

S-Oak, mild blueberries, funk but not a lot.

T-Woah, Very funky and sour, packs a mean punch. Mild blueberries that increase as it warms. slight oak.
