3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pour is murky orange with a small white head and good lacing. Punchy orange, tang, caramelly, bready, tannic, peach skins, cherry pit, and spice in the aroma. Taste is cherry pie, vanilla, graham crackers, orange peel, light spice, apricots, and wood with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty good drank.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Avery Sour Fest. Cloudy brown with reddish tinge. Nose of coconut and light oak. Full bodied, with some light pie cherry flavors, but overwhelmed by coconut, I guess from the barrel? Coconut was too much for me to love this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured 2011 from bottle to glass. Hazy orange hue with fizzy white head that dissipates. Aroma is cherries, oak, sugar, lactic, spice. Mouthfeel is great with a medium light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a tart slightly astringent following and ethanol in the finish. Overall this is a great oaky sour brew!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured cloudy, deep pinkish-red with a thin, off-white, mildly pink head. Great tasting Cascade sour beer. When the nail and they get it so right. Nice, lush, vibrant, tart cherry, vanilla, and a candied sweetness flavor along alcohol heat. The tartness was focused and puckering without leaning too heavy in the acetone realm. Unfortunately a lot of the bourbon and barrel seemed to have dropped out, but still a boozy heat to bring around the sourness.

Cascade does it again for me. Just a great huge ABV sour that i didnt realize was this strong. Tons of leather, cherry, walnuts, vanilla, cola,.. Nice tart finish with moderate sweetness and tartness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle supplied by AdamJackson. Many thanks! To undersized snifter, it pours a hazy orangeade brown with which an off-white ringed head half a finger in length stood. Think lemon tarts, straw, lactose, candied sugar, salted caramel, wildflower honey, vitamins, and oak. Alcohol crept like a motherfucker. A lot going on here.

Taste at RBNG. Thanks, Adam! Pours light brown with hardly a bubble. Aroma of dark cherry, leather, vanilla caramel. Very delicious, taste is mostly perfectly tart cherry.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours murky red with thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma if cherry, bourbon, apricot, currants. Taste is very complex with maraschino and sour cherry flavors, apricot, oak, bourbon, vanilla sweetness. Moderately tart. Mouthfeel is more full than most sours. Overall amazing sour. Very under rated. I've had many Cascade sours and this is top 2 for sure. I should have bought another bottle
