bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 25, 2014
750 c&c from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light translucent gold with a white head. Aroma of light herb and perhaps a hint of salt. Med body at least. There’s a sour tang, supported by a little salt. There is a little herb or perhaps something like lime. Although the individual flavors, except sour, aren’t strong, the whole may be greater than the sum of the parts.

Dr_Fellini (551) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear pale yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma a light citrusy tart character with a touch of saltiness. Flavor is mildly tart, but not overbearing, salt is a little more hidden than a typical gose. More on the cascade sour character. Light in body with a lingering dry tartness and a touch of saltiness. Very tasty!

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Bruce. Aroma of lemonade mix, citrus peel, and slight sour grape. Pours hazy blonde with nice bubbles and a small head. Taste is pleasant with lemon peel, apricot, white wine, and salt. Very light and easy to drink, nothing too sour or intense going on. Was expecting different from Cascade but was happy nonetheless.

bottle shared by tom10101, thanks man! pours hazy if not cloudy pale yellow-greyish with a very nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. dusty lemons, fresh coriander and miscellaneous bitter herbs - very nicely integrated fragrant herbs, gently lactic - spot-on!, grassy and peppery, slight oakiness, salt and other mineral: traces. lively carbonation, light body - oily, balanced woodsy-grassy-spicy-herbal finish. very good!

Bacterial (1727) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Sour and slightly herbal nose (coriander). Hazy light pale yellow pour with a slight white head. One of the least sour Cascade sours that I have had. Really nice salty with some nice subtle coriander. Yummy.
Earlier Rating: 8/17/2012 Total Score: 3.7
Hazy yellow, almost no head, minimal lacing. Spicy lemon nose. Tart funky lemon spicy goodness.
