Bottle shared by Marcus. Bottle gushed lightly, bright dark copper pour has tiny flakes. Smooth sour oak cherry aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is subtle boubon mixed with rather sour cherry. It’s just a tad sweet,but not enough to go sweet/tart. Not a trace of heat. Quite delicious.

Bottle at Mikkeller, thanks to Matt for this. In the sour room. Gorgeous clear ruby pour with creamy pink head. Aroma: jam, cherries, oak, fruit. Taste is big on fruit, with prominent tartness. It’s hard to believe this is as big as it is. Palate: medium+ body, slick texture, pleasant carbonation. Overall: It’s easy to forget how good Cascade can sometimes be. This is great.

Tap at Cascade. Pours bright red with off- white head. Aroma is cherries, burnt hair, smells like a hair salon, sweet. Taste is vanilla, cherries, light bodied, crisp, really awkward, a bunch if flavors that just do not work together, very contrasting. Overall, needs to get fine tuned.
