Shared bottle from DrewFace at WoB, thanks! Pours a hazy red color. Lots of cherry in the aroma, sour/tartness too. Flavor is the same, sour, cherry, sweet. First time having this one, very nice.

#1500 at WoB! Pours a cloudy deep red color. Big sour cherry aroma, acidic and tart. More sour cherry flavor, cherry very prominent but not overpowered by the sour. Delicious....one of my fav Cascades.

On tap @ Cascade Brewing Barrel House. Pours dark maroon with a big creamy head. Aroma is oak, balsamic vinegar, berries, fruit and cherries. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sour and tartly fruity with quite balanced notes of wood.

Bottle from somewhere, catch-up review - this is smack yourself sour, with a cherry finish. Nice!

Tap at Cascade. Pours a full haze deep red. Nose is chocolate, cocoa, Oerbier Reserva like with French oak barrel, redcurrant, cranberry. Taste is similar, definitely more of an oude bruin than kriek: chocolate, cocoa, cranberry, red wine barrel, redcurrant, dark cherries. Big lactic finish. Clean, long acid pulp sourness. Really good for style. One of if not the best from Cascade.

750 ml bottle at tasting. Pours a cloudy reddish brown color with a medium sized pink/off white head. The aroma is very enticing; tart cherries,barrel and funky notes, lactic with noticeable acidity. The flavor is does not disappoint either; sour, acidic, rich sweet/sour cherry, barrel, lactic, a splash of caramel. The finish is still tart and acidic, not a mouth puckering beer. Tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown mahogany and mostly opaque with a huge, chunky khaki head that settles slowly. Aroma is sour, funky cherry skins. Tart with a dry, musty funk far in the background. Light vanilla and some dry oak in the finish. Taste is plenty of sour cherries and sour grapes with a big vinous and oak flavors. Very nice tartness, gets the saliva glands sweating big-time. Sweet, dying tartness, cherry and grape, oaky finish. Tasty stuff, seems to have more bottle variation than most other Cascades; some bottles have a mild medicinal tone, others are completely void.

Bottled courtesy of caesar. Slightly hazy, dark red colored, small head. Sour fruity nose, wood, very much like a kriekenlambiek. Sour and tart flavor, fruity, acidic finish. Could perhaps use a little bit more body, but otherwise a very nice kriek that closely resembles a true Belgian lambic.
