One of my favorites of the 2009 GABF. Went back to this one on day two. Really well made, with rich cherry flavors and aromas. Great amount of tartness, too. Tasty stuff.

POurs deep amber. Nose is sour cherries, funk, sour lactic acid, sweet fruit, wood, wine. Flavor is an incredible balance of sweet fruit and sour sour cherries, big funk, tart fruit. Somehow cascade keeps their sours full bodied, never thin. Awesome! Cascade never disappoints.

Bottle thanks to reuben. Ruby brown with light tan head. Cherry aroma fills the nose quite easily, along with noticible osur notes. Cherry, brett, with some oak flavors come together well. Another great sour by cascade, although not as good as others.

Boutip (4964) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle: Poured a murky red color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sour cherries with some lightly sweet notes and some tannin and oak notes are also discernible. Taste is a very well balance mix between some tart notes, sour cherries with underlying sweetness and some light tannin and oak notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no alcohol was apparent. Very well done and wouldn’t pale in comparison of some good Belgian fruit lambic.

Tasted at the Thursday RBSG Events on 7/9/09. This kriek pours a medium reddish color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white/pinkish foamy head. The aroma is tart and sweet cherries a touch of funk. A medium bodied sour/kriek. The malts are fruity and sweet, semi sweet and tart cheery. The hops are earthy. A little bit of funk, with some bitterness. Interesting. I would like to age this one a while and try it again. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and tart.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Dark red color with not much head. Aroma is cherry, sour candy. Flavor is more sour cherry candy sweetness. A bit acidic and has a sweetness to balance it out.

Split this giant wine sized bottle with Adrian910ss. The label was handwritten. 750 ml bottle. Pours a pinkish red colour with a creamy tan/beige head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, tart cherries and funk. Flavour of apple cider vinegar is the dominate taste along with tart cherries, and funk. Very sour beer.
