Cascade Blueberry AleCascade Blueberry Ale

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Deep purple in color, translucent with a slightly hazy appearance due to the carbonation. Large creamy white head that dies down quickly leaving a thin uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Great sweet and sour aroma; you can smell the sweet fruit followed by a noticeable musty, sour finish. Taste starts with a fruity blueberry flavor followed by a sour and slightly dry finish. Very thirst-quenching. Light to medium body, slightly fizzy from the large amount of light carbonation. Overall a very unique beer. The best blueberry beer that I have ever had. I would definitely purchase again.
