Cascade Blueberry

Last week I splurged and decided to pick up a bottle of Cascade Blueberry. It's a blueberry sour from out in Oregon. I actually thought it was a Cascade pub exclusive and didn't expected to find it here in Philly, but it was available and so I figured I'd give it a try.
Strong blueberry nose with a hint of funk. It's nice to actually smell the fruit instead of just crazy vinegar or sourness. Very impressive flavor. Blueberry up front, balanced by a pleasant sourness that isn't too strong. The fruit actually grew a bit as I got used to the sourness and it was just really flavorful. This may be the first blueberry beer I've actually liked! Not too surprising it's in a sour. I'm honestly inclined to say this is nearly worth the price or at least worth splurging on once. Also makes me wonder if the Apricot sour they often sell is worth the steep cost. Maybe I'll find out at some point.

  1. Yeah, this is the first year I ever saw Cascade stuff around these parts. I splurged on a Kriek, though I'm not sure when I'm going to crack it open...
