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.

A: Poured into a Bruery Tulip to a reddish pink hue topped by two fingers of light pink head that fades quickly to a small collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: smells of oak, funk, sourness and blueberries
T: taste is acetic sourness with some funk and oak with some nice blueberry flavor. a little barnyard as well. Swallow is blueberries, oak, funk and sourness with some lingering blueberry flavor and sweetness toward the very end of the finish
M: fairly light on the palate with slightly prickly carbonation and a drying finish
O: This beer is fantastic. It's extremely tart but the fruit is still there in a supporting role. Probably better fresh but still amazing after some age. Truly a world class sour and I'm not just saying that because it's hard to get.

kind of bland looking, some foam at first but settles down to a light cranberry-juice-looking liquid..... but what an aroma! aroma follows the palate: tart and fruity, easy to drink, light on the tongue. 5/13 dated. feels fresh, though.
blueberry for sure.
