From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. Shared by tectactoe. Thanks! The pour is a dark, dark orangey brown color with a light tan head that disappears to a collar rather quickly. The aroma is incredibly tart and sour. There is some cherry and lemon, There is a little funkiness to it on the deep inhale, but if’s really good. The flavor is fantastic. The tart cherries are just beautiful. There is a little sweetness, almost like it’s a juice. There is a decent amount of acidity to it, but I love it. The mouth feel is very good. medium-bodied with a nice carbonation and a very dry, tart, sour cherry going on for quite some time. It’s a beautiful beer

Good but weird sour. Can't say I gravitated towards it but enjoyed it at cascade brewery

Bottle, 2011 project. Pours an orangey garnet, slightly muddy with small tan head. Aroma is really nice: spiritous, with lots of spicy bourbon and port mingling with roasted sweet cherry, sour pie cherry, curaçao, plums, tobacco, lemon zest, oak. Taste is sour orange and prunes with sharp sour cherry, vermouth, and an underlying caramel sweetness as well as light notes of milk chocolate. Long oaky sweet/sour finish. Great complexity, great beer.

Keg at Cascade Barrel House, as ’Sang Noir’, 11/11/14. Murky mahogany brown with moderate tan edgeing. Nose is funky, musty wood, bitter fruit rinds, horse blanket qualities, tarte red berry skins. Taste comprises dank wood, nutty concept, funk, dirt, musty red berry, cherry skins, off red grapes, light dry rot. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent well balanced Flemish red with light puckerings.

Bottle: 2012 Project. Don’t know what took me so long to get around to this bottle, but I’m glad it is finally time. Slightly muddy brown, opaque body with hints of ruby throughout. Muddled, light-tan head forms a flimsy collar on top within moments. Super tart, sour lactic aroma... Cherry skins, lemon, cherry flesh, sour redcurrant, tannic oak just on the edge of boozy vinousness, a hint of musty funk, cotton, mild yogurt quality, & a small hint of spice towards the finish, almost like cinnamon. I get that note quite often from rich, cherry beers. Flavor full of tart cherry juice. There’s a small, offsetting sweetness underneath, but make no mistake, this thing is TART as hell. Mild acidity, especially compared to most of Cascade’s offerings. Faint vanilla yogurt, sour lacto yeast, lemon skins, currants, wet oak, faint grape skin, & a small touch of booze in the finish. Lingering acidic cherry skins on the palate with a touch of tannin. Very well done.

Had ontap at the barrel house served in a taster. Plum ruby hue, cream Hued head with lots of lacing. Nose is of cherry, figs, plums, leather. Slight white wine appears. Sourness is on the back end followed by light acid burn in the throat. Pretty dang exciting right?

Tap at Cascade Brewing. Pours brown with orange hues and light tan head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, wine, cherries, sour yeast. Taste is light sour, lots of wine, crisp, lots of complex layers, great long finish. Overall, very good.,

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cherries (lightly tart), yogurt, light vinegar, lemon, hints of vanilla, and oak. It pours hazy brownish-orange with a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a moderate dose of sweet and sour cherry with a touch of cola. The finish has moderate sour lemon and a touch of oak. It’s medium bodied moderate-lively carbonation.

"This one’s a wild ale all the way. As with Sang Royale, the awesomeness of this brew cannot be understated. Pinot, whiskey, and sour cherry? Why yes please. Easily the winner from a pretty impressive line-up of sours."
