BEER INFO

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

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.

$30 going down the drain, a shame

Somewhat unpleasant phenolic band-aid aftertaste dominates the finish turning a very delightful and delicate beer the wrong direction.

Looks like a merlot with a ring of rim bubbles. No lace.

Sour nose with a faint aroma of blueberry.

Very sour. Reminds me of a blueberry mead I made once. Very low carbonation but the body is neutral. Long sour aftertaste.
