4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at The Kernel, London - many thanks to Paul U. Pours hazy grapefruit pink with a foamy, white head. The nose has dry and funky berries, some cherries. Light to medium sweet flavor, mildly acetic, some cherry pit bitterness, light sour burn, tangy berries. Medium bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Dry and tangy to finish with more vibrant cherries now. Juicy, lightly jammy. Really good. I found it more drinkable than some of Cascade’s other beastly sours.
