2010 bottling. Pours pretty orange-red amber, small ring of bubbles. Aroma has held up well and is maybe my favorite part of this beer: dry sour cherry, oak, light red wine, orange, though also has some slightly volatile chemical notes. Taste is sour pie cherry and preserved lemon, lemon juice, some sweet malts too. Very nice.

On tap@Borefest: Pours clear deep amber color with tiny tan purple head. Aroma is the best part, funky, with sour cherries, hint of grape, oak, vanilla,...flavor is overall onedimensional but still you can detect the same notes as by aroma. Finish is dry, astringent, tart. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium.

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.
