Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

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.

Light purple color with a decent head. A bit murky and turbid. Some definite yeast mixed in. A light blueberry aroma with some hint of vanilla and oak. Same profile as a flavor but more tart. Drinks fairly easy. This beer has held up well. I imagine it's more blueberry forward when fresh but the age has given a light sweet and sour beer. Well done.

Fairly sour beer. Blueberry is subtle, though blends nicely. Nice, but I would like more blueberry.
