On tap at Cascade, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma of tart lemons atop some honey, orange peel, various spices and a slight hint of the vanilla beans. Flavour brings out very complex sweet and sour notes, with honey for the sweetness, oak barrels and tart fruits. Exceedingly complex with a full array of flavours I can’t do justice to by naming off more flavours. Finishes lightly tart and a bit sweet leaving some residual sugars on the teeth. Awesome concoction here.

Taster from Cascade Barrel House in Portland. Wonderful aroma of oak and sourness. The sourness is medium strength and doesn't linger as it gets taken over by the marshmallow sweetness. A delightful brew.
