The Bruery
California, United States | website

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.

-pours like Welchers grape juice but slightly watered down. This is not a bad thing.
-drinkability is way easy, light and crisp with a highly acidic back ground. nuances of oak and lemon smells appear in the back ground.
-carbonation is nicely done with a zesty and sour ending. All though the blueberry smell is subtle, the drinking of this alchemy is were this beer shines. Reminds me of Sans Pagaie with a twist....personally this is a much better crafted brew.

Bottle pour at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Billed as a sour blonde ale with blueberries.

Pours a murky light red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of sour, tart, and funky with fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of berry flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super tasty and easy to drink.
