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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is one of numerous sours made by numerous breweries that seems to have some sort of endlessly complicated aging and blending process that leads to something that is not ultimately very special tasting in the long run. It is brown red in color with a little ring of head. It has a quality that I just generally dislike which is that it is both very sour and rather sweet which combined w/ woody notes from the barrel aging process always reminds me quite a lot of drinking barbecue sauce. I really just canít get into this one.

Bottle (2009): The aroma consists of cherries, lemon, faint apple, and faint cola. It pours a dark orangish-brown with some transparency when held to the light. It has a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a few stray bubbles. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cherries with a hint of cola. The finish has moderate-heavy sour lemon and sweet tarts. Overall, super sour without any acetone, so Iím loving this.
