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.

Bottle pour sampled at mrbubbler's tasting courtesy of wethorseblanket.

Pours a slightly murky red with a white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sour and tart blueberries and some funky aromas. Taste is the same with a very sour finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good sour beer with a nice blueberry presence.

Huge thanks to barleywinefiend for snagging this growler and getting it to drabmuh and I, thus setting up the Cascade sour tasting. Served in a Cascade Barrel House goblet.

Pours a beautiful deep blue with some hints of violet. Nice white head with a bit of faded blue mixed in. Fantastic coloring. The nose carries a bit of acidity paired with really bright, fresh notes of blueberry and accompanying skin. Very light earthiness there as well.

The blueberry aspect continues through the flavor. There's so much depth just from the blueberries. Such a great berry to use with a sour and, in my opinion, far superior to the typical choice of raspberry. I was ecstatic to hear that Cascade was going to be releasing bottles of this. Behind the blueberry, there is moderate acidity.

The body is crisp with clean acidity and a dry, sour finish. Good carbonation. This is an impressive beer and one that I hope becomes a regular offering in Cascade's fruited sour rotation.

Served in a Sweetwater mini-snifter.

So many bottles being poured from a basket... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly cloudy magenta topped by a finger of lightly off-pink foam. The nose comprises light funk mixed with sweet Concorde grapes. That might sound odd, but it is rather pleasant. The taste brings in more of the same, though now a strong current of tart blueberry flowing through the proceedings. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, a very enjoyable beer, one that doesn't bludgeon with the sour, but also doesn't leave you wanting more. Good times.

Bottle acquired for me by ChrisPro - thanks! 2012 Project. Served in a tulip at Nora's place. Cork was a bitch to get out and necessitated a corkscrew.

A - White foam quickly dissolves to nothing. Hazed purple-blue body.

S - The aroma is heavy on oak and lactic sourness, with notes of blueberry skin and lemon, as well as a hint of sulfur. Not bad, but way too much oak for my tastes. Alcohol is well-concealed as I would have pegged this closer to 5-6%.

T - I like the taste better, as there's more blueberry presence and malt sweetness to balance the oak. There's some nebulous fruitiness that I'm not sure I'd immediately associated with blueberries, and a moderate dose of lactic sourness to round things out.

M - Dry, medium body, with moderate carbonation. There's a faint trace of the mid-level ABV and moderate acidity that is surprisingly restrained for Cascade.

D - Not bad, but I think Cascade makes a number of stronger offerings. I probably should have drank this immediately, as the blueberries seem to have lost some potency over the last 9 months. Reminds me a little of Upland's Blueberry lambic. Easy to drink in any case; we had no problem polishing off the 750ml bottle.

Thanks to Aaron for sharing this one! Quick review from written notes.

Served in a small tulip glass, it has a sanguine wine-like appearance, with no foam on the surface. Purplish red coloration.

Berries and Bretty bandaid aroma, with a light fruit sweetness in the periphery.

Super acidic and sour, puckering with light acetic sharpness, and a very dry finish. Salivary glands work into overdrive. Medium bodied with light carbonation, almost like sparkling juice. It's drinkable and satisfies the sour fix, though it's a little one-dimensional overall.

For me, this was the star of the Cascade tasting night. Not quite a Blaeber but who else can pull that off?

Beer is blue / purple with a whitish / off whitish head, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is sweet, blueberries, mild sourness, mild lactic, just an awesome smelling beer.

Beer tastes nice, like blueberries with a mildly lactic creaminess and tart finish. The fruit is great in this beer, a really nice beer overall and sweet balanced well with the sour. I'd have this again.

Light fizzy head fades almost instantly, purple and chestnut reddish brown rosy color.

Nose great blueberry, fresh big plump blueberries, light wild funk, mild sweetness with touch of blueberry pie, tart blueberries as well,

Taste more fresh plump blueberries, thick juicy blueberries, blueberry pie filling again, nice sour flavor and tart berry, light stem like green flavor, just a hint of funk. Nice overall sourness and not too sour, some acidic flavor. Finish is drier and long sour flavor, nice blueberry and tart fruit lingering, light vanilla toasty oak finally coming through on the finish, little flemmy, nice acid.

Mouth is med bodied, little carb, little acidic bite.

Overall quite nice, great fresh and tart blueberries, great sour flavor.

i havent had a ton of beer from cascade, but one takeaway from the ones i have had, is that these guys may well be the king of fruit. their apricot is just divine, and this blueberry is just as well done. deep dark purple in color, all from the fruit, i can see a probable blonde beer base underneath, but the stain from the berries is deep. a nose thats more sour than it is fruity, with lots of mellowing oak and then the fruit punch complex of the blueberries, which are as tart as they are sweet. the flavor follows a similar format, sourness first mostly on the front end, before the fruit ramps up. the berries do add some sugar that isnt all the way fermented out, which i like, because its a nice balance to the sourness. i think the true flavor of the blueberry here is as authentic and prominent as the apricot, although i think the apricot it a better beer, the use of fruit and brewing expertise on display is the same. jammy middle before the wood softens the finish. its earthy and summery and reminds me of a place i would like to be, out in a blueberry patch in august gorging myself until my face and hands are stained purple. a special beer, the best blueberry beer ive ever had by leaps and bounds.

From 02/11/12 notes. Big thanks to drabmuh and Thorpe429 for sharing a growler of this one. Poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a deep, reddish-purple color with one to two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks really cool.

s - Smells of blueberries, sour, tart dark fruits, light funk, acidic, and some oak and vanilla. Smells a lot like blueberry pie; I really like it.

t - Tastes of blueberries, lightly sour dark fruits, oak, acidic, citrus, vanilla/cream, and light floral/earthy notes. Taste is not as sour as the nose, but it is still very nice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Easy to drink beer.

o - Overall I thought this was an awesome beer. Not quite as sour as some of Cascade's other offerings, but if you like their stuff and blueberry based beers this is a must try. Smells exactly like blueberry pie, with light sourness to it. Looking forward to getting a bottle of this in the future.

On-tap at Cascade's Barrel Room in Portland, OR.

Pours a candy-like red-blue hue with some slight haze and a solid weight behind it. Head is firm, slightly filmy ring of white. Looks solid enough all up, although there are detracting things about it.

Aroma: well, blueberry... Blueberry, blueberry, blueberry. Very pronounced and strong, and not all that complex. No, I lie: there are characters of rosé, and a clean, fresh brightness to it beyond the pips and pith of blueberry skin, along with an apparent tartness. Pretty light and clear overall, and not overwhelming.

Light, clear entry as well, with some sharp acid developing into a cleanness mid-palate that swoops into earthier territory later, giving blueberry skin and a clean, light finish. It's a bit less complex than I expected, even though the nose didn't suggest huge complexity. The feel, which is very light, doesn't help.

Overall, though, it's a drinkable and pleasant brew. The crisp acidity is not overwhelming, and it's smooth enough and bright enough to keep it interesting. I think it was one of the low-lights of the visit, however.

750ml corked and caged offering. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a hazed ruby color with a faint white bubbly cap resting atop. A swirl revives a nice finger or so that displays fair retaining powers.

The aromatics include a noteable amount of blueberry, it is impressive considering how fainty blueberry can be in beer after it ferments mostly away. It displays a familiar cheesy aspect though found in other blueberry wilds. It has a bit of a pitted earthy character about it that I enjoy because of how natural it seems.

The taste is tart with a lemony lactic aspect that is pretty sold in the profile. It displays almost a meaty funk and mild fruity quality thats very nice but not really immediately identifiable as blueberry.

This is a medium bodied brew with a pleasant amount of tartness and natural flavoring that is mildly tannic. The blueberry inclusion was felt more in the nose than anything which is understandable. Id have this again if the opportunity presented itself.

On tap at the barrel room back in June.

The beer pours a lovely red rose color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is just gorgeous in this beer, as I pick up considerable blueberry, wine, vanialla and rose petals. On the palate, this beer is every bit as impressive, with the blueberry really dominating the flavor profile, but with undertones of light wine, light vanilla and light sour. The beer is at most medium bodied, but with a long finish of sour and blueberry. Alcohol is pretty much unnoticeable.

Just an all around excellent beer... one of the better wild ales I can recall ever tasting.

Was fortunate enough to try the experimental precursor to this beer (the van der jon berry), but IMHO, this is clearly superior to that beer.

Poured out mostly a purple color. Looked like it was more of a puree of different fruits, as this one looked like it was aged on blueberries and raspberries. Aroma, nice lactic tartness, not massively sour, but nice, good, displayed the fruit aroma decently, again, not necessarily something distinctively blueberry, but definitely fruity.

Taste, one of the milder Cascade efforts in terms of sourness, but the fruit was there. Nice light wheat body. Absorbs the fruit nicely. I really took a long time out by the pool on a near 100 degree Father's Day to drink this, let it warm up, was quite nice.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Had it again in late 2012, that batch, might be even better than the one I wrote the review for.

Shared at a recent tasting. Acquired in a trade with Thorpe429 & drabmuh.

The beer is bluish purple colored and clear with a light purple head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. A mouth watering appearance.

The aroma is just sublime. Blueberry pie with subtle notes of vanilla and a nice tartness. A beer to sniff and savor as long as your willpower can last.

Blueberries come through nicely. Mild acetic and lactic quality. Not nearly as sour as many other Cascade offerings, but refreshing and tart.

Creamy and smooth. A light sweetness from the berries offers balance.

Overall, I am quite pleased to hear this will be released in bottles. I look forward to having this again.

Poured into a snifter glass at Smoke & Barrel DC for DC bottle share. From notes.

A real nice wonderful glowing pink and red body. Head is a good pink to purple with a nice whispy top and maintains a nice faint collar. Very nice looking brew.

Nose has a little sense of clean wet feeling, but it's a noticeable funky fruit of blueberry and cherry senses, mixing in with some good mild black pepper. Quite nice.

Palate hits with a little bit of low acidity, and the mid palate really hits with the mix of fruit hinted on the nose. Wet carbonation feel, with some of the flavors only returning on multiple sips. A bit fleeting flavor wise. There's a little bit of sense of sour, and some light grain in the back.

Overall pretty nice but mostly the appearance and the nose is the mose impressive part.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 vintage. Pours lightly hazy ruby red color with a 1-2 finger foamy light pink head with decent retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing on the glass, with tons of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tart blueberry, green apple, cherry, pear, raspberry, pepper, hay, funk, oak, clove, leather, red wine, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of blueberry notes with fruity/spicy yeast and barrel presence; and big strength. Taste of tart blueberry, blueberry skin, green apple, pear, raspberry, pepper, hay, grass, oak, clove, funk, leather, red wine, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of blueberry, apple, pear, raspberry, pepper, oak, clove, hay, funk, red wine, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of blueberries with fruity/spicy yeast and barrel notes; with a fantastic balance of malt/acidity and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Blueberry sour ale! All around great complexity and balance of blueberry with fruity/funky yeast and oak character; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the moderate acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

750ml corked and caged 2012 bottle poured into tulip 12/6/13 big cheers towards Rutager for sending me the bottle

A hazy bright ruby maroon liquid with plenty of bubbles feeding a huge 3 finger pink foam that leaves a thick partial ring of lace, love the color of this one

S cheesy funk and a little oak, lots of blueberries and some tart raspberry and strawberry jam, the funky notes come out as it warms and maybe just a little lemon

T toned down version of the nose with less fruity notes and more oak, I'm liking the flavor but the nose was amazing

M lighter side of medium, lots of bubbles almost prickly, quite sour with slight tannins and a little slick at the same time, finishes quit dry with a funky oak finish

O not sure how this one lasted over a month just sitting in my fridge, strange how I get lots of fruit the didn't brew with, no booze at any point and its going down fast

very nice sour, funky and earthy but I think it could use just a little more fruit but its a very minor complaint. This one's working well with this warm June afternoon, maybe a little to easy to drink.

on-tap, reviewed from the Yard but have had numerous other servings elsewhere

appearance: served in an unbranded 12oz chalice, really a wild looking beer - a bright blueish-purple body, ruby hues, light off-white lace

smell: acidic and funky, tart blueberry, oak, floral

taste: i've also found the translation from blueberry to beer to be a little less seamless than some other fruits (cherry, raspberry, etc) - i'm not sure why this is, and maybe its just my palate. the cascade version is very acidic and packed with sour blueberry flavor. Perhaps its that the flavor seems to be derived more from the skin than the flesh of the fruit, which gives a more concentrated tartness and less true blueberry flavor. Either way, this is another winner, but is a class below the other bottled offerings

mouthfeel: lactic tartness, high acidity

overall: The blueberry is a tricky fruit - see for yourself

This one was a part of cmrillo’s 40 Beers* @ 40 Birthday Bash! Shared by cmrillo at his own party! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a ruby red pink with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wood, blueberry, and funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, blueberry, wood, tart, and sour. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. It was stated at the tasting that since Steve Kim wasn’t here, which meant no one brought the Blåbær, that this one would have to do. While it was definitely not on the same level it was definitely a very nice brew that was on par with it and Upland’s version. This one was a lot easier to get as well which makes me wonder why I didn’t buy a case of these when I had a chance. An absolute must try if you have not done so already and if you have, you already understand.

Bought from the brewery online. My bottle says this is 7.66 abv.

The pour reveals a cloudy amber red liquid with a pinkish head of foam. A persistent head with some great lacing.

The nose is dominated by 2 things..aromas of Oak, number 1, and blueberries, number 2. Sour blueberries.

The sour blueberry taste is not overwhelming, actually on the mild side. The oakiness compliments the blueberries nicely with some light notes of a vinegar like sourness. Not an over complicated American Wild, I can appreciate its simplicity though I do wish the blueberries were more assertive.

On the low side of medium bodied with a lightish zap of carbonation, it has a good mouthfeel.

Overall, I like. I did expect to like it more than I did.

Clear reddish-purple topped by a lasting white head. Great looking beer. Tart blueberry skin aroma, mildly sour with a little sweet blueberry flesh. Palate is balanced, mildly sour with a pleasant lacto character backing up tart and sweet blueberry notes. It's more skin than flesh. Very clean, light finish. Refreshing and enjoyable, but not overly complex. Thankfully doesn't have the stomach churning lacto character of many Cascade sours.

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip. This is the 2012 project at 7.66% ABV.

Appearance: moderately dark reddish-purple hue of blueberry flesh with a light haze and a good effervescence. Quite beautiful. Head poured a thick finger of frothy purplish foam which didn't have great retention.

Smell: tart and wild lambic-y aroma with a nice, fresh blueberry/huckleberry character. Very nice.

Taste: beautifully lovely blueberry right up front, followed by a slightly funky brett-like character which add a balancing earthy tone to the bright acidity which strikes through the whole process. Just lovely.

Mouthfeel: lightish body with a big carbonation and concomitant creaminess, although it's a bit ephemeral. Hard to build a big mouthfeel with such an attenuated brew, but still quite satisfying.

Overall: very tasty and drinkable, with a complex wild character and refreshing fruit flavor. I'd definitely have this again.

stubby chalice at the brewpub with some NC State NCAA action

Bright blue-purple - looks rad, with a light head. Dense blueberry aromas with a concentration of deeply flavored skins. Lots of acid on the nose, tart and puckering on the palate. Not pulling a ton of oak at first, but more as it warms. Deeply fruited with the familiar Cascade acidity.
