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.

2013 release. 750ml bottle poured into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a light purple color with a blue-ish hue and 1 finger of an off white head that settles to a ring. Body is moderately hazy.

Smell: Sour blueberries, lacto, moderate funk, hay, lemon, damp wood.

Taste: Relatively high acidic sourness along with blueberry (though weaker than the aroma), funk, oak and a hint of red grape. Some blueberry skin character in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied with medium, fine carbonation. Not watery, but a little thin.

Overall: Pretty similar to other Bruery fruited blonde sours. Nothing mind blowing, but still good stuff. Not a must have, but still worth trying if the opportunity presents itself.

Huge thanks to Bilco for sharing the bottle. Review copied from notes taken 8/2/14.

Appearance: Ruddy plum purple with a peachy pink tint. Minimal white head with a soft purple tinge. Loose bubbly cap with a tin collar.

Smell: Acetic. Loaded with vinegar and bright blueberry flesh. Tannic with blueberry juice and skin. Carries some solid oak. barrel and deep musty funk. Building push of grass and earthy funk with the typical moist Bruery funk. Woody with a strong lactic push as well. Blueberry is prevalent but overshadowed by the sour component. Slightly rotten fruit with some darker berry thrown in as well.

Taste: Lactic blueberry pie. Deeply acetic with the associated vinegar push. Wood comes through the sip and increases as the beer warms. Macerated blueberry flesh with a ton of tannic skin. A bit juicy on the initial sip giving way to a bracing acidic bite. Tart with lemon zest and a sharp citric bite. Deeply acidic. Reminds me of a blueberry Warhead. Some blackberry sneaks in the back or other vague dark berry. Malts are very light with a touch of bready sweetness laced through the back. Slightly powdery yeast as well.

Mouthfeel: Thin to medium body with a slight carbonation. Astringent and dry on the finish.

Overall: Roll me down the hall.

Another solid "sour" from The Bruery. Blueberry lends itself well to they're particular blend of bugs and whatnot. A bit unwieldy thanks to an off balance acetic push, but definitely tasty and worth drinking again and again.
