BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cascade Brewing / Raccoon Lodge & Brewpub
Oregon, United States
cascadebrewing.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.33%

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.

2012 bottle
Pours dark pink/purple with a slightly pink head.
Smells of huge barnyard funk upfront with some pleasant blueberry pie notes.
Taste is tart upfront that leads to a smooth sweet blueberry aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with a fairly high amount of carbonation.
Trying to look for something wrong with this beer and just can't find it...absolute perfection

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. 2014 Vintage.

A- Pours a dark ruby red color with a 1/2 inch pinkish purple head that soon fizzes away to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass.

S- Lovely funk with some bright acidity. Moderate blueberry sweetness. There's also some Brett character bringing up the rear.

T- Big funky attack upfront with the sourness and blueberry coming through nicely in the middle leading to an unexpected but delightful green olive aftertaste from the Brett that lingers good and long. There's actually a lot more Brett presence in here than I thought there would be but it actually goes wonderfully with the blueberries, surprisingly enough.

M- Perfect amount of pucker with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Another incredible sour from Cascade. Man, do these guys know what they're doing.
