bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Tap at OBF. Color is reddish amber. Aroma of sour cooking cherry. Near med body. Flavor is cherry and pretty sour - not overly acidic - but heading that way. Mouth smacking.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2008 Mobile rating. Draft at the brewery. Dark purple brown color a small off-white head. Mildly prickly blackberries and peppery currants. More prickly than sour. Fruit sweetness on back: red grapes, currants, plum, etc. Interesting but not spectacular. Needlessly simple, quietly sweet and dissolves quickly on the tongue into a flabby and stale mess.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café during Big Wood 2008:   Heavy amber, brownish hues, moderate frothy off-white head, a few rings of lacing.   Oakish, apple and cherry skin on the nose.   Some golden raisin.   Has a sour fruit skin flavor.   Reminds me of old raisins or figs.   Tart, but not sour.   Mild dryness.   Needs something more.   Not watery, but does seem a bit thin.   Kind of does a faceplant on the finish.   Tiz okay, but the flavors are too muted.

Draft at Brouwers Cafe Sourfest. Slightly hazy orangeish dark amber. Dense but thin light creamy head. Soft, tart cherry/vinegar nose, with hints of fruity red wine grape. Medium creamy, a tiny bit of carb’s there to liven up the mouthfeel. Rich tangy red fruits on the mid-palate, fading into sour orange with a sweet and sour lemon finish. Fantastic.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Dark red decent bubbly head. Vinagrette aroma. Almost metallic. Oaky sourness. Tart dry w some lactic tartness infinish. Lingering oak notes, dry. Sour but npt too acidic. Good deal of oak, underlying fruity sweetness. Soft tartness. Smooth carb. Nice offering.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Clear brown with a thin tan head. Nice sweet/sour caramel aroma with cherry. Mild to medium tart flavor here balanced by a caramel, dark raison, and cherry sweetness. A nice example of the style. Draft@Belmont Station.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Tap @ the Brewery. Out of order rating, but wanted to enter this to push me back into number 1 sour rater slot. Pours dark red with a tan head. Nose is light and sour. Taste is sour, and light and very tart and quite tasty.

Huge unpleasant sour nose and profile. Somewhat salty. This is supposed to be a sour ale, not vinegar

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Draft @ Raccoon Lodge. Pours a slightly oily, yellowish brown color; creamy, light-tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Slightly balsamic nose showing red fruits, along with some slight honey and biscuity wet malts. Medium mouthfeel: decent levels of citrus / balsamic tartness, along with a full lemony acidity, but a bit watery at the core, with more cardboard than solid oak or anything else; heavy on the balsamic and overripe red fruits. A bit lacking at mid-palate and beyond. Medium finish: toasty oak and wet malts (light), and lingering light red fruitiness.

12 oz draft at Brouwers Cafe Sour Fest in Seattle, Washington. Pour is clear mahogany with only a thin off white head. Aroma is faint, I pick up on some caramel sweetness and lemon sourness. Taste is really full, a bit unexpected after the muted nose; cherry sour sweetness, tart yeastiness in the finish. Acidic throughout. This is a really nice Flanders Red. I have really enjoyed all of the Cascade beers I have tried. I guess you were right Rick.
