Cherry overcomes you. Hints of port and some malt. Deep, dark red with loads of carbonation. Very fizzy. Taste is quite sour and full of cherries. Some oak and wood, as well. Refreshing and just outstanding overall.

Yes! Best sour Ive ever had. Aroma is nicely fruity with grapes and cherries. Taste is tart but not too vinegarous. Flavor is heavy currants and berry with a nice oaky spicyness. GREAT

Sampled at GABF 2009. Muddy brown pour. Sour, funky, oak, and tart cherry aroma. Very tart lemon flavor with a slightly vinegary taste as well. Exceptional.

GABF 2009: between GABF sessions and Dr. Bill’s tasting, I think I drank more of this beer than any other over the GABF weekend. Pours a muddy reddish brown color with a full, fluffy light brown head. Nose is a nice, sweet, cherry vinious dark complex thing, i must say. Flavors pretty much reiterate that nose...sour cherry, dark malt complexities, clean as can be...tart as fuck and lovely.

Cascade is so impressive. This beer has the complex sourness that the best beers from Belgium have. It’s amazing. The tart cherry flavor is very nice. Fairly dry and not much sweetness. Yum! Thanks Humulone Red!

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.

750 thanks to ben greenburg. Smells like supplication, the barrel aging is amazing, tastes tart and sour and a tiny bit funky.
