Bill Becker (774) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 10, 2012
2011 Project, bought from the brewery online for $21 It pours a murky rusty colour, started off with over a finger head of foam but that quickly dissipated. Very little lacing left behind. You can certainly smell the sour cherries and the oak barrel. Some slight note of vanilla there. My nose is happy. Tart cherries up front in the taste, oak flavours not so much. Alcohol extremely well hidden when it comes to what sits and swirls in my mouth, some definite warming during and after the swallow. Sour, yeah, but not overly so. Very slight hint of a vinegar sourness so I don’t *think* that heartburn will be an issue. Very tasty from the get go; I opened it at near room temp to get all of the flavours rather than opening after pulling from the fridge. A delightfully delicious Wild Ale that I wish had a bit less alcohol to make it even more drinkable; as is, it’s still and an easy drop to tip back. I’m very impressed with what Cascade has made here. They sure do know their s*it.

chinchill (4137) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2016
On tap at the Cascade brewpub: 2014 version at 9.8% ABV in July 2016. Sour aroma with sour cherries and vague dark dried fruits. Nice complexity. Lovely dark ruby body with a lasting off-white head that leaves a draping of sticky lacing on the snifter. Moderate tartness. More cherry in the taste than the aroma. Overall: excellent version of the style.

Garrold (4020) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle. Little Leeds Beer House. Label states 2014 project. 9.8%. Clear, dark ruby red. Thin, dense, lasting, sticky, light tan head. Looks good. Nose has stewed cherry. Cherry pie. Booze soaked wood. Sour cherry. Some vanilla. Light cinnamon spice. Some bitter chocolate notes. On top of all that, there’s a fusty, mouldy yeasty thing going on that sits just right. Taste has sweet and tart sourness in equal measure. A bit like like an old balsamic vinegar. Smooth palate. Light acidity. Lightly acidic, earthy, stone fruit finish. Very nice.

radagast83 (7090) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle purchased at Red Apron/B Side. Poured a very dark brown color with a small, but long lasting tan head. Aroma was some very dark mild bourbon notes, which become stronger as it warms. Vinous notes are very prominent. Nice oud bruin character to this one.

ryanfolty (2354) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2016
March 12, 2016 - on tap at Rare Beer Fest held in the Minnesota History Center. Orangish red pour with limited head. Like the Noyaux, this was nicely balanced with the fruit, wood and wine, but also had a nice bourbon flavor mixed in.
