750ml bottle, pours a dark purple brown with an off white/pinkish head. Aroma of blackberries, dark fruit, oak, a hint of chocolate, yeasty funk. Flavor is blackberries, slightly tart, some oak, hints of chocolate and a slight touch of vanilla. Sweet and tart finish. Very enjoyable in this summery weather we’ve been enjoying here in So Cal.

Thanks to Iowaherkeye for sharing this, pours deep and hazy reddish brown with a thin off white head. Nose is faint blackberry and some soapiness. The flavor is subtle but quite the same as the nose, with nothing in the finish that I was hoping for.

750mL no date from Monument. Hazy auburn with a 1/2 finger off-white head. Fake blackberries in the aroma with some light soap, hints of wheat. Flavor continues with a dry finish, acidity @ a 3. Mod carb with light carb. Speed rating, and not that good!

75cl bottle courtesy of illidurit. Opaque red-brown with a light brown, almost pink tinted head. The aroma caught me off guard because of the blast of milk chocolate. Pretty oaky with the chocolate and a rich blackberry quality as well. The flavor has some chocolate and is lightly sour with lots of berry. Very effervescent with a lighter body. While the aroma was bursting with chocolate, the flavor was more dry and tart. Pretty cool.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Pours the color of blackberry preserves, with a little dark caramel color in the highlights. Lasting ring of pinkish ecru head. Aroma is very oaky with sweet milk chocolate notes and unripe berries. Flavor is blackberry seeds with raspberry cordial sweetness. Solid tartness but not sour by any means. Obvious oak influence. A little too bubbly at first but it settles down. Finish is pleasantly dry. Way better than the Kriek.

Bottle from Hamilton’s Tavern. Pours deep brown with a purple-ish hue. Head was about 1/4 inch thick and was off white/ pink in color. Nose of fresh black berries and other dark fruits. Aroma was slightly tart with hints of oak and vinegar as well. Flavor was sweet and sour. Pretty much what I expected from Cascade, good, not great.
