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.

750ml straight from the source. Dusky reddish pour with a sizable pale head that’s somewhat thin in consistency. Smell is wood and cherry, with slight musk (not as much as I’d expected though). The nose suggested some kind of variation on JP’s La Roja but the body was much thinner, and the taste far more dry and astringent. I’m not sure if the port barrels had a thinning effect on the cherries, as there’s not as much there as I’d expect, and the beer’s more generically acetic than anything else. Very good brew, just not quite what I had hoped for.

Bottle pours dark red color with little to no head. Aromas of barnyard, wood, cherry, and tart leather dominate. Course mouthfeel. Flavor was sour cherry, woody, tart, barnyard, and finished dry. Someone commented this was a lot like consecration from russian river. I agree. Good stuff.

Bottle shared at Where the Wild Beers Are NYC 2009: Ruby copperish with a thick voluminous tan head. The aroma has apparent buttery oak, toasted currants, soft red vinous notes and a mild tart fruitiness. Crisp body and flavor off currant and cranberry tartness meshing cohesively with toasted buttery oak and soft vinous presence. A well done sour that should hopefully age nicely.

750ml bottle
Opened fairly early on at Mike’s latest tasting this gem makes me want to get more of the Cascade sours after finishing the two in my cellar. If they are anything like this one the United States has another brewer who knows how to do sours right.

Aroma / Appearance - Deeply red the blood colored body sticks to the sides of the glass. A thin amount of head reveals moderate carbonation levels. Strong and tart it bites the nose with a mix of cherry and brown sugar.

Flavor / Palate - Carbonated and sour the first impression attacks the tongue. Calming after a minute or two it morphs into a rich cherry that then lingers in the throat. Whatever they call it (double red / Flemish sour) this is a winner across the board.

Poured a red brown with a small white head. Nose was of cherry, grapes, and oak. Taste had some slightly off oak flavors, a little more tannins than i’d like, nice cherry and vino flavors. Pretty sour, rather funky.

Vinous dark brown, tart raspberry and flemish brown aroma. Deep lingering sour, wood tannins and a hint of fruit. Fantastic.

Bottle, c&c, from Ledger’s. Pours a dark ruby (halogen light) with a sort of fizzy beige/tan head that didn’t last all that long. Overwhelming aroma of cherry and sour. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is cherry, oak, tart fruit. It is astringent, and arguably more than a little funky. Certainly a great sour ale.

Bottle Pours out a hazy rust brown topped with a tan head. Aroma was over the top lots of vanilla, oak, cherries and a nice tartness. Taste was much more of the aroma lots of sweetness, cherries, grape, apple. More of the oak and vanilla. Another great sour from the Lodge. I think they are on to something.
