From Cascade – This NW style sour ale blends wheat & blond ales that were oak aged in barrels for 6 mths, then additionally aged 4 mths on fresh blueberries. Huge herbal notes of dense blueberries in the nose give way to hints of oak & 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.
Cascade Brewing – Cascade Blueberry – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 7.33% abv.
Appearance: Pours a bright magenta with a foamy head that quickly subsides to a film.
Aroma: Blueberry, blush wine, oak and cork. Lots of lactic funk.
Taste: Funk, phenols, a little bit of ban daid, sour blueberry, slighly grainy wheat. Low tannins alcohol well.

Overall: Very tasty, pretty funky compared to other fresh-ish Cascade sours I’ve tried. Really wish I had more to try over time.
