4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lactic sour, cherry, oaky Woody, dry tannic aroma. Very clean, not funky. Taste has all the same with some slight bourbon flavors in the finish, but they are subdued. All the flavors work so well together and are so balanced. Sour maybe 6 or 7 of 10, not overly sour (but still pretty sour), perfectly balanced. Get a little more Woody bourbon vanilla flavors as I drink more, but still slight bourbon. Dry fermented cherry, not sweet. So good. One of the top cascade sours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Republic - so nice to have Cascade in Minnesota finally! Beautiful dark pink pour with slight white lacing. Jammy cherry nose. Big tart cherry bomb, but with much more depth than some of Cascade’s sours: cherry skin, light bourbon sweetness in the finish. Legit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to shifters, displaying a hazed, copper color, with a modest layer of soft white, bubbly head foam that reduced to a persistent, small bubbled film, and light spots of lacing. The nose was expressive cherry that was dry, extremely tart, and nearly sour. A bit less than medium bodied, with moderate carbonation that assisted, but was mainly blanketed by the tartness, the taste was cherry & sour as the aroma, with some tannic astringency, a touch of sweetness that was slightly mellowing, but no perceptible bourbon to complete the Manhattan theme. Puckering, and very tasty, nonetheless.
