barrel house draft on a balmy summer afternoon

a: served in a stubby little cascade branded chalice, deep purple-red in color with a collar of white carbonation

s: blueberry nose with a noticeable floral/herbal charactetristic, some earthy leather, not too much oak and a light tannin, gentle spice, nice prick of acid, the berry leads the way here

m: not quite still on the palate, but very gently carbonated, medium in body, velvety

t: lots of leathery dried blueberry flavor with some undertones of malt and gentle spice, steeped herbs, nice acidity, berry flavors linger with a touch of tannin to finish

o: captures the blueberry very well, not hugely complex but very enjoyable

Serving type: on-tap

Beer Dinner with Cascade Brewing
Stone Brewing Co.
Escondido, CA

Dark ruby and a true blueberry-colored beer, with moderate amounts of visible carbonation, and only a thing ring of small bubbles atop. Appropriate.

Plump and juicy blueberries in the aroma, along with a mild oak presence, some grass, and very minimal funk.

The flavor is much more blueberry-forward than Cascade's Blueberry, with far less funk. This is more of a straight blueberry punch, with only a moderate level of sour character. Simple, straightforward, fruit-forward, and incredibly delicious.

Medium bodied with somewhat low-moderate, creamy carbonation.

A wonderful fruit beer.

Serving type: on-tap
