4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I obtained this bottle in a trade with a great trader @thebeerprophet. Brought this to a bottle share at Proof. Pours a hazy very dark peach color. Good amount of head on the first pour that dissipated fairly quickly. Second pour got more head than the first. Nice medium white collar. Aroma is very earthy/woody and sweet-tart cherry blend. Taste is amazing. Very similar to the aroma, with some of the caramel/wood coming out. Mouthfeel is viscous for a sour; like chewing an overripe marischino cherry. Nice carbonation despite the low head. Pretty thick body. So glad I traded for this to share with good people.

Bottle generously shared by Seth. Reddish brown pour with a white head. Cherry and barrel aromas. Delicious cherry, stone fruits, and assorted berries blend seamlessly with rich caramel malts, vanilla, and oak notes. Complex with a superb mouthfeel. The ABV is totally hidden. Another stunner from the Cascade crew......

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!

4.3 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

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.

750, corked and baled. Pours a murky dark brown with a scant white head that goes away right away. Enormous oaky nose, almost balsa wood, sweet and tasty. Cherries and apricots dancing. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Oak and fruit and tart pucker on the mid palate. Balanced and layered and effortlessly harmonious...everything that separates a beer and marks it as truly great, it’s all happening here. This is magic.

Bottle shared thanks to mverity! Pours a hazy golden orange with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is lactic sourness, earthy musk, sweet cherries, and whiskey. Taste is funky sour awesomeness, wow. Odd but great, bubbly carbonation, lasting sweetness. Amazing, no idea at all it was that high of an abv.

Hazy murky amber, murky bown, white head. Nose is funky, farmyard, sugary, leather, vanilla, very light bourbon whisky, cherry. Mainly sweet but with some light malt vinegar sour . Taste is funky, sour, white sugar, full rich and sour. Strong white sugar sweetness and then vinegar sour. Soft sweet rich and full flavoured. Very good beer.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at the Barrel House. Pours a clear Rosé wine color with a thin white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, oak and vanilla. Full-bodied with a midlly boozy character and flavors of tart cherries, caramel malt, Hawaiian Punch and yeast. The finish is lightly sour with a cherry and yeast aftertaste. Comes perilously close to becoming a mess but it works for me, enjoyable beer.
