Very cloudy red/orange cidery appearance; thin head. Tart and fruity, dry. Tasty. I need to try this again, obviously, since I am having trouble describing it.

Courtesy of eyedrinkale at RBSG. Definitely really dug this one, poured a deep red brown with a fluffy head. Nose is full of funk and acid. Some nice phenolics and light fruity esters. Some cherry comes through, along with tart grainy notes. On taste, the acidity is strong but soft and rounded. Floats across the tongue bringing more cherries and some dark stone fruit as well. No real vinegar notes. Pretty great stuff

Pours a dark red color with a thin head to it. Has a sour yeast smell to it. It has a slightly sour cherry taste to it. A bit on the weak side when it comes to being sour. Maybe it’s just to cold but it seems to watery all around for me.

Pours deep red with white head, aroma is complex with wine, sour cherry, vinegar, some other tart fruit. Taste is some cherries, apples, grapes, leading into acidic middle with a nice dry finish. Balanced very well!

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin beige head. Aroma of caramel, candied fruits, mild sourness and wood. Flavor of wood, mild sourness, caramel and candied fruits. It’s interesting, but it feels like they’re trying to mix too much different elements in this beer to make it really good.

750 ml bottle all to myself. 6/7/10. Pours a brownish amber color with a slight foamy tan head. The nose is oak, brown sugar, hints of cinnamon and clove, tart cherry, vanilla, and Belgian yeast. The taste is initially moderately tart cherry, dried apricot, brown sugar, and Belgian yeast but turns into a delicious blend of oaked sweet cherry and the characteristics of a sour brown ale. The vinegar or lactic acid burn is slight when compared to other sours. The lacing was moderate, as well as the legs. This is another delicious Cascade Sour Ale. Recommended highly.

Pailhead (4783) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle: The aroma s very yeasty with moderate sweet cherry and a hint of vanilla. It pours a cloudy brownish-orange with a small off-white head with some nice webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of yeast and vanilla. The finish quickly turns tart cherry, lemon, and a hint of oak. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Big thanks to Andy for sharing this one. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small creamy beige head that recedes quickly to a small collar. The aroma is sweeter than I was expecting but not in a bad way. There are sweet tart cherries, brown sugar and candied pears as well as plums. There is a light lactic sourness in the nose but it’s very subtle as is the hints of oak. The taste is more of the same with lots of different fruits hitting the palate - plums, apricots and brown sugar. The finish is where the oak barrel comes out with a dry spiciness that mixes with lactose sourness and an emerging bretty funk. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and almost slick with a soft carbonation - tart and dry finish. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve had from Cascade and this is no exception. A very drinkable, well-balanced sour.
