4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to Lukaduke for sharing this bottle! Pours clear dark blue-purple with 1 finger of pink head. Nose is tart earthy berry, wine, sweet. Mouthfeel is tart and slick, easy drinking. Taste is tart, blueberry, blackberry, some funk, the berries are well balanced. Finish is a pleasant sour fruitiness with some sweet (but not sugary) notes of berry and oak mixed in. Very good, probably my favorite blueberry sour yet.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a violet rose color with a finger of pinkish grey foam. The nose is full of rustic blueberry tartness, dusty barrel funk and a bit of herbal notes. The palate follows the nose with touches of thyme, sage and tons of blueberry funk. Not sweet blueberry but tart earthy fruit with a trace of round spicy oak to fill out the mouthfeel and add more complexity, Bits of vanilla and musty basement linger in the finish. Damn thats a tasty beer !

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Barrel House. This one is a hazy red shade with a ring of light pinkish white foam. As expected, blueberries start coming forth in the aroma. To me it actually tastes more like a red grape sour, but blueberry certainly comes out in the finish. Much more tart than some of the other Cascades I had. Good stuff.

Pours a nice deep pink purple liquid with a pink fluffy head. Aroma: aroma has some dark berries, blueberry, green apples, sour, some funk, some barnyard. Nice and balanced. Taste: sour, nice fruity component but not too much blueberries initially, Get more bluberries in the back. Some funk in there. 2012 bottle. Good sour!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour a clear purple with a thin tainted head that disappears and could not be revived. Aroma is really fruity with red fruits being at the front (not sure I would have picked blueberries as the fruit here, it felt more like cherries to me). Taste is a bit weird, with a kool-aid / tang like feel. I mean, it is a little watery and fruity and it felt really artificial to me. A good one that could maybe use more fruits in the fermenter.
