3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy reddish brown in color... Aroma of cherries, tart berries... Sedimenty... Flavor is a sour bomb, like sucking on a sour ball, but with dry apricot notes on the finish... Solid

This sour is a fabulous blend of tart cherry, smokiness, and the subtle complexity of Pinot noir.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddis brown with almost no head unless that small rim counts. Aroma is really fruity with cherries dominating. There is also a bourbon "feel" to it. Taste is tart and lactic without too much acetic acid (in my glass at least). It was still plenty acid though. Light bodied. I seem to have enjoyed it a lot more than my tasting partners, I will have to revisit.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Hazy burgundy with a low beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of red fruits, oak, vinegar, ketchup, sweetness notes and malt. Taste is moderately sweet with a burst of ketchup, followed by red fruits, oak, malt and light spiciness. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Dry mouthfeel. Tasted alongside 10 other Cascade bottles and it was definitely the less good. Miles away from Rodenbach. Too much ketchup.
