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.

At Borefts 2016. Aroma of cherry, oak and tart. Rich flavor of sour cherries, oak, tart, soft wheat and some acid. Nice, but the others are even better.

Tap. Deep ruby color with tan head. Aroma is cherry, a bit spicy. Taste is cherry skin. Medium carbonation. Dry tart finish. Interesting spices. Very nice, Cascade really pulls off Sour Fruit Beers without just copying the Belgian character.
