4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the Portland barrel house.
2012 vintage. Pours a dark mahogany with a small white head. Smells really jammy.
Taste is quite tart but with a fairly hefty body behind it. Juicy and superb.

Bottle. Thin light tan head, dark cherry wood brown that’s got ruby highlights. Bright ripe sour fruits, cherry, strawberry, wood, some vinegar and tart aromas. Flavor is quite tart, unripe cherries, some slight fruity sweetness, berry sharp tartness. Medium and very dry. Lovely for the style.

2012 vintage. Pours a very murky black cherry color with a huge head. Aromas of funky fruit, sour nightmares. Taste is lactic sourness all the way, accompanied by more sour. Flavors of sour cherry, raspberry yogurt. Finishes with a very sour cherry blast. This is very good.

Bottle@Home. Nice sour and tart, very funky, very unclean ale with cherries certainly prominent. In the finish a harsh lactic almost vinegar sourness. Yummy.

Draft at Cascade Barrel House in Portland, OR on 29 May 2013. Poured a pinkish hue with a thin white head. Pleasant balance of fruity aromas with some acidity and sourness. Definite cherry flavours, but not synthetic. Nice moderate sour flavours.

An almost black colored pour with some ruby highlights. Little bit of a tan head. Little lacing. Sour pie cherry aroma. Taste is a thin sour taste. Not bad.

1012 Project, 7.2% abv.
It pours a cloudy reddish brown, has a small head of foam but does a good job with the lacing.
The nose is big with lots of sour cherry goodness and a strong oak presence. I could sit and sniff for quite a long time if I wanted to.
Glorious sour cherry flavour up front mixed in with a vinegar like sourness and an in the somewhat background taste what oak barrel aging brings. It is beers from Cascade like this that bring me back to their online page to order again and again.
Nice combo of carbonation and body makes it eminently mouth pleasing.
Another great brew from Cascade. Big surprise there..
