This NW style sour ale was made with various red ales that were aged in oak with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, then blended with red ales that were aged in Port and Pinot Noir barrels.

750 ml bottle thanks to Toby. Pours a dark brown color with a medium brown head. The aroma is great; huge woody sour notes come through, yeasty, fruity. The flavor was great; tart, slightly acidic, lots of complex barrel, fruity but not distinctly cherries, fizzy and almost mellow in some senses. Near to a Flemish sour. Very damn good. Cascade has this complex type of brewing down to a art. I wonder how much the port barrel added to it, there was a strong vinous dimension.

Suttreeís Nothing else to do in Mid-February Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to Suttree. The star of the show, I have started to move away from sours a little lately, or at least given a preference I go for the lighter gueze end of things instead of these fruitier examples. Still this was good. Hazy red, off white cover. Aroma is sour cherries, woody, funk and tartness are apparent. Taste is fruity, cherry, woody, tart, lots of carbonation.

Bottle at LS X. Pours a hazed brown and has a moderate beige head on it. Aroma is tart cherry fruitiness. Has a big, slightly wine-like sour cherry flavor with some dry oak woodiness on the finish. This also has a bit of an herbal flavor somewhere along the line. A delicious fruity sour.

Man does Ron ever brew a spectacular beer. Itís hard to describe, and I donít think I really have the proper vocabulary, because these beers are different from other wilds. Cascade doesnít use brett and so their beers are more funky than sour, but just superbly blended and ridiculously smooth.

Bottle from DA. Poured a brownish red with 1/2 in. brownish white head. Aroma was very tart, fresh cherries, oak, red wine. Taste was super tart yet very tasty, sour, red wine, nice balance between sweetness and tartness. Pallet was medium smooth and frothy. Overall awesome. So glad I got to enjoy this with friends.

Dark red, thin ring of foam. Aroma of...look, just drink this, OK? Itís fabulous, and donít usually use the word fabulous. I save this for a tasting and instantly regretted having to share as soon as I took a sip. Thanks to grownfool for the trade!

Bottle opened by WeeHeavySD at paytoplayís tasting. Deep red color. Lots of acidity: lactic and acetic and probably some malic or citric from the fruit. Combine the acidity with gushing carbonation and high ABV, you have an all-out assault of flavor on your palate. Nice Bretty phenoics as well.
