Typical of Cascade sours and their cherry sours in particular, this is bracingly tart and not something I’d take more than 1 or 2 oz of ever again. Fortunately it was served in a small pour so I didn’t have to waste any. SSF 2012.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cascade, pours a murky dark mahogany with basically no head. Nose smells very vinegary, with tart cherries, followed by oak - dominated by vinegar. Flavour is insanely vinegary, mouth-puckeringly so, with tart cherries further back. Complex, but way too vinegary. A nice slow sipper, but it’s a bit difficult to drink.
