3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David, thanks! Hazy purple with a small pink head that quickly dissipates and leave no lacing. Aroma is of intense blueberry jam, oak, acetic notes and herbal/floral presence. Taste is sligthtly sweet and moderately to heavily sour with blueberry jam again, lactic and acetic presence, wood and slight herbal/floral notes (mostly covered by the sourness). Medium body. Leaves the mouth dry. Not easy on the stomach, but really fun to try but all those blueberries! I liked it!

Pours a hazy purple with pink head, no lacing. Aroma is full of blueberry jam, some oak. Taste is all about the blueberrys, big lactic and acetic notes, oak. Low mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty good but sharing this one is a good idea.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DLD 2012: Pinkish hue with a fizzy head. The profile was tart blueberries and white grapes, oak, wheat, biscuit, mineral, and a hint of tannins. The mouth feel was quite refreshing, sprite and lively with just the right amount of oak dryness. I really enjoyed this even with the high level of acidity. Nice!

22/IV/13 - 750ml bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-351) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!
Cloudy nice ruby red to pinkish purple beer, big aery pink head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of fruit, very funky, actually not so pleasant. Lemony, orange flavoured vitamin effervescent tablets, pretty bad. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Tasty: same orange flavoured vitamin tablets, lemony, orange peel, very sour. Aftertaste: bitter as well, sour, dry, tannins, lemony. Not a big fan of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting.
Rougeâtre, col blanc léger.
Arôme st fruité avec ce bouquet myrtilles laissant un léger côté fleuri, grains sur une note aigre boisée de chêne.
Palais est ici bien aigre avec le rajout d’une base fruitée légèrement acidulée. Retrouve ce profil typique américain des ’sours’ le tout couplé à une pointe boisée de chêne qui ajoute une certaine complexité et une fine aigreur. Pas mauvaise, mais pas ma préférée de Cascade.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky purple / blue / brown with a white head, perhaps a hint of lavender here. The nose is blueberry , bread, mild earth here, feint spicing, and light funk; the flavor profile has an initial light funk, average souring, moderate body, revealing more blueberry with skins and juice, caramel, oak, bread, and a touch of citrus near the finish - This is a very nice attempt at a blueberry sour with a decent base beer

Bottle. Pours almost purple, or maybe I’m just imagining that. Medium acidity, some solid blueberry sweetness, just a hint of funk, light candy sweetness, and a little tartness in the finish. Solid.
