3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice mahogany cherry ale with a mirrored surface. Smells of oak, cherry, and hints of ink. Really flanders like in the nose. Flavor is fucking sour, with cherry and more sour. Itís kinda difficult to really taste anything through the fleeting barrage of acidity. Medium bodied with low carb and a mouth watering finish. This beer is sour, i enjoy it, but itís on the far reach of sour for me.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2011 vintage consumed on 11/22/13. From the second the bottle opens a wonderful aroma of sour cherries greets the nose. Color is a brightish red. The flavor is an incredibly bright sour with the cherries coming through magnificently without any of the Brett notes than can sometimes overwealm a lesser sour. As perfect an example of a Kriek that there is.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 bottle, 7.2%. Pours a deep, dark red with a sticky tan head ring. Smell is sour cherry, sweet cherry, wood. Taste is powerfully tart and sour from the get-go. Not sweet at all. It has a natural sour cherry feel, not the vinegar blast some sours hit you with. Lively on the palate with a medium finish. Damn good stuff.

#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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
