Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
This NW style sour ale blends wheat and blond ales that were oak aged in barrels for six months, then additionally aged four months on fresh blueberries. Huge herbal notes of dense blueberries in the nose give way to hints of oak and a dusty floral note. Rich earthy notes of dark fruit on the palate lead to a tart finish that dries out to a base note of blueberry skins.

Poured from the bottle into a taster glass. 2012 vintage.

Appeared a purply-red color with a one finger white head that dissapeared quickly.

Smelled funky - fresh blueberries, lemons, orange zest.

Taste was a bit less heavy on the blueberries than anticipated but very fresh tasting. Definitely sour.

Mouthfeel was light and bubbly.

Overall a solid blueberry sour.

I'm typically a big fan of Cascade's sours but this one had a very strong phenolic flavor (band-aids) which almost ruined it for me.
