Nightfall Blackberry starts as a soured blonde wheat beer aged for 12 months in oak barrels, then laid on blackberries for another six. It features intense fruitiness and a concentrated color and aroma.

Newk (299) - - JUN 28, 2012
poured from tap. Pours a clear red color with a nice foamy head. Very floral aromatics with some roses, violets, cherries, currants and a touch of fresh picked berries. This has an excellent medium feel along with nice tart flavors of cherries, violets, roses and some currants. A very tasty sour. Nice and tart without being overtly sour and more of the berry kick.

I cant get enough of these cascade sours. Really tart acidic blackberry with great vanilla oakyness balance so nicely. Not too sour and the straight lacto souring is really nice.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2012
On tap at Cascade in Portland. 2011 vintage. Beautiful ruby pour, with an orange tinge and a small head. Mild aroma, vinous with some berry punch and sangria. Very vinous currants and blackberries -- almost herbal -- in the flavor. Tasty, but not my favorite of the Cascade brews.

marcus (6018) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
On tap at the barrel house. Pours dark red with almost no head and a slightly sour berry aroma. There is a tart balckberry flavor that sticks to the palate. Refreshing and tasty

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Really nice garnet/ruby color with little to no head. Aroma is tart, fruity, vinous, some berry notes for sure. Flavor is very tart on the front and kind of melts into some sweet berry notes. Slightly musty and vinous. Good beer.

Smurf2055 (1303) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours a nice red color with little head but decent carbonation. Smell is crisp berry flavor, maybe a bit of raspberry too. Taste is very tart, the blackberry shows up in the middle of the taste. Drinkable and refreshing. Pretty good.

Tap at the Barrel House. 2011 vintage. Pours to a crisp winey colored translucent red. Aroma of blackberries and black currants. Has a leafy character. The flavor is black currants and juicy blackberries with green leafy characteristics. Tart but sweet palate. Medium bodied and clean.

notalush (4638) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Tap at the Barrel House - lightly hazy bright purplish red - zero head - nose of blackberry, plum, moderate acidity, light funkiness - a bit watery up front, but strong carbonation firms things up through the middle - flavor lacks complexity - mostly acidic, with notes of plastic/band-aid phenols, fruit is completely washed out by these - prickly, acidic finish - very light funkiness - meh.
