"I like figs in general, but prefer the white fig used I salads most of the time over the darker sweeter black mission fig usually use in darker beers. This sour is a fantastic combo of white fig, wild grape from the barells, and a lemony twang that packs a punch. Absolutely delicious and covers the abv well."

The beer is light golden with a mild haze and a quarter inch of white head. Aromas include wild funk, yeast, stone fruit, apricot, pear, peach, oak. Dark fruit and gig character emerge more in the flavor. Absolutely delicious. Complex and wonderful. Puckering finish. An outstanding beer from Cascade.

World Cup Beer. Hazy dark golden with a small white head. Complex aroma with perfumed citrus and floral notes, bright funky character and oak. Sweetish, tart flavour with lots of fruit and funk. Good flavours, but a little bit too acidic

vyvvy (3964) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours light hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has dark berries, wine, citric / vinegar acidity, citrus zest and some figs (by suggestion in the description?). It has a medium crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation and liveliness. The flavor starts off with white wine, sharp acidity, clean blond ale malt and some oakiness. The finish really shows the figs and lemon zest and seems a bit like herbal tea. This was quite nice.

Bottle from the brew house in Portland.
Pour is dark orange with no head. Smell is fairly oaky with vinous notes and vanilla. Very juicy body. Quite tart yet so smooth and drinkable. Notes of raspberry and peach. I did a double or triple take when I saw the alcohol content. 2014-06-03
