Cascade Blueberry

Cascade BlueberryFrom 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.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with modest carbonation.

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