THE Others tasting. Thanks again to Bruce for pulling out another scarce one. Slight haze on this dark red beer, residual apricot coloured head! Palate is light, semi dry and crispy. Nice Duchesse Du Bourgogne vibe here - with added tangy cherry! All right!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blood red pour with a white head. Big cherry aroma of fruit flesh and skins. Sweet fruits, a touch of grass, and a light lactic tartness. Maybe a hint of vinegar. The flavor has a good fruit/cherry sweetness and lots of cherry skin character. Some oak, a bit of grass, and a bit of lemon juice.

Bottle at The Others Tasting, London - big thanks to Bruce for bringing this back from his travels. Pours dark, blood red with a fine, pink foam head - looks rather fetching. Sweaty cherry nose, good and funky. Medium sweet flavor with bitter cherry pits, good funk, some jammy berries, highly acetic. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Tangy finish, funky and acetic, more tart cherry and bitter pits. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Bottle... Murky blood-red ale with a tiny, creamy, pink head. The aroma consists of fruity black cherries, caramel, red wine and a mild note of ethanol. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor offers fruity black cherries, tart sour cherries and a modest measure of ethanol. Finishes fruity and lightly boozy. No real oak component here. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Deep reddish pour with purple tinges. Head is reddish/pink. Aroma is fruity, jammy, sweet tarts, berries and cherry. Sour up front but that gives way to

Courtesy of dschiller. It pours opaque copper with gold hues and supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma is vinegar, passion fruit and earthiness. The taste starts off with a strong puckering tartness and vinegar slightly sweetened up by sugary maltiness. It then quickly flows into a tart cherry note. It ends with the addition of a pleasing peppery earthiness in the background that really works for me.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
In short: An avalanche of fresh cherries with oak, mild tartness and farmhouse character. Excellent.
How: Bottle 750ml. Shared with Montreal friends. Bottle was approximately 6 months of age and sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Shinning bright dark red body topped by a beige ring of foam.
In long: Nose is an explosion of fresh dark and red cherries, a nice oak presence, a mild farmhouse character. Taste predominantly fruity with fresh dark cherries, fresh red cherries and a light raspberries sensation. A nice oak presence that adds a lot of depth without stealing the spotlight from the fruits. There is an overall farmhouse character without reaching the wild-funky territory. A mild acitidy/tartness adds a refreshing quality. Low sweetness sensation. This is classified on ratebeer as a Sour/Wild but this is really more of a mega- fruit beer with a light Sour/Wild twist. Truly an excellent beer, maybe the best Cascade Iíve ever had. A fantastic beer with a lot of class that is a perfect match for a fantastic classy person like me, and donít tell me Iím a pretentious snob, I swear the next time someone calls me a pretentious snob Iím going to throw my colorful scarf over my shoulder, flip my hair and walk away.
