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."

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours mahogany with a beige head. Sour berries, sharp acetic notes, sherry, and an overly acidic finish. A bit much; fine for a small pour, but relatively low drinkability.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours a cola color with no head/carbonation. Aromas of cherry and chocolate with a slight balsamic reduction note. The sour is almost too overpowering. Slight cherry and grapes flavor come through but mostly acidic. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle care of Elise. 2012 Project. Deep murky grey dark brown-red, almost purple tints. Initial head fades out but the sides stay bubble thanks to the lively carbonation bubbles ever-rising. Sort of harsh acetone-vinegar sourness. Some pleasant sour cherry tones. Leathery bourbon caramel...mild, but adds some nice depth. No finesse in the sour, just hits you over the head. This beer is probably best in 5 oz samples...in no way sessionable, sort of a task, albeit an enjoyable task, to drink. A great concept, Cascade just doesn’t succeed in subtlety.
