3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a mixture of cherry, various berries, lactic, oak sourness. It’s a very bubbly light in mouthfeel with a heavy backend lactic sourness. The taste is of sour fruit, sour cherry candy, lactic, oak, finishing dry as you unpucker your face and go in for another biting sip.

shared@2nd D/F/CH TriStateTasting, courtesy of Oldmanriver, thank you! Complex nose and taste, woody, vinegary components, dry cider, oak, and a dry and pleasant finish. Just not so much my favourite style.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Bottle 75l @2nd TSRG. An amber red beer with low head. Nose is very acid like with cherry touch. Aroma is on red dry fruits, cloves, vinegar, vinous and very very acid, even bile notes, some complexity but really my cup of tea.

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Sean. Garnet/ruby pour with a tall khaki head. Super acidic aroma. Lots of dark fruit such as currants and black cherry. Slight solvent, fair amount of vinegar, green apple, and lemons. Flavor is intensely sour. Tons of red wine vinegar and lemon juice. Slightly vinous. Lots of currant and black cherry. Big time green apple, too.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Thanks, Ed. 2009 Project. Mahogany, muddled body with a red/copper tint to it; khaki head fades instantly to a ring. Aroma of sharp cherry skins, some vinous grapes, a hint of booze & plenty of sourness. Oak, vine, & mild notes of port mix with a borderline acidic tartness in the back-end. Taste is crazy sour, think Black Cherry Warhead. Off the charts pucker with subtle red grape sweetness to pull the tide back. Vinous wood, light booze, & some fading lemon & yogurty lacto notes leading to a sharp, dry, post-puckering finish. A little bit of spicy oak left on the palate. Yet another deliciously sour beer from Cascade... This one is upper echelon.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this toward the end of a long day at RBSG, so my notes are messy and my palate was likely wrecked. Orange with ginger and a hint of nail polish. Very acetic and chest burning. Very harsh without much balance.
