BillKismet (3472) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2009
This was titled "Nightfall Blackberry" at The Dray in Seattle. Beautiful red aled with a cream soda cream head. Tart blackberry aroma with earthy, farmhousy, sour brown notes. Fruity flavor, though difficult to pry away and discern any blackberry. Sour, citric, salty, tart, bretty, with woody sour brown notes. Earthy, with a prick of uric on the finish. Patently well-crafted, but not much an appreciator of the style.

Bottle pours out a brown with a little red high topped with a small bubble head. Aroma of light berries and a little wood. Tast more of the light berrie and some tartness. This was a little to bubbley for me. Have to say one of my least favorate Cascade Sours.
