3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Barrel House - after a few lackluster brews here, this one final hit the mark, to an extent - hazy purple brew - compact, frothy head - nose is a complex mix of cherry, spices, leather, light funk, oaky tannins - flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic - a bit doughy - flavor of cherry, tobacco, chocolate, oak, red wine - lightly bitter and funky finish - nice.

Bottle at Paul’s Dec 3rd Tasting. Pours a murky brownish red body with light brown lacing. Aroma is sour cherry and wood. Mouthfeel is puckering tart and fruit. Another great sour of the night. Glad I was able to try this sucker.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle courtesy of dcschiller. Pours deep red, almost brown in my snifter with a thin off-white head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma has huge cabernet nose, with hints of oak, and a little vinegar. Flavor is sharply acidic sour, with a crisp, tart red wine finish. Excellent sour. Wish I had more of this!

Bottle… Tour of Power Sour Hour 2011 … This beer rocks!… Murky brown ale with a small, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma is funky, earthy, woody and dusty. Full-bodied and astringent with soft carbonation. Flavorful and nicely soured – a caramel base is bullied by acute acidity. Finishes coarse and tart. Thanks goes out to richiesd for shipping this rarity my way!…

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cascade Tasting Room, split with Matts_Property, pours a dark, murky mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of tart red fruits (plum), oak and red wine. Flavour of tart red fruits above all, with plum and cherries, with qualities of red wine, port, oak and brandy. Finishes with dark sour fruits and roasted malt, accentuated with the aforementioned barrel aging notes. Delicious!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, thanks to Paul who brought this back from the brewpub. Hazy mahogany with a tan head that fades quickly. Funk and sour nose, vinous, cherry with a bit of cough syrup, oak, and a bit of vanilla. High carbonation considering, full bodied, booze, great cherry and tart on the palate, somewhat sweet but unlike some of the cascade beer the tart and funk are more prominent, great cherry, grape and funk finish that keep on going for very long time. As it develops you get some port, more cherry, bit of cough syrup, and booze. Very good - try it if you can get it.

Bottle shared by hopscotch at Tower of Sour Power, thanks a ton dude! These beers from Cascade make me happy. Thought I’d probably not get to try this beer for sometime and then out of nowhere the situation presents itself. I loved it. Great sour funk and fruit aromas. Not a jaw tickle but a good swift sucker punch.
