4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pour at the Sixgill. Pours a pinkish purple color with a ring foam head. Fresh blueberry aroma, as expected with some black cherry too. Flavor is a ton of sour blueberry, with some floral notes, and a bit of a sugar sweet and berry sour finish. Overall a fantastic addition to an already very impressive Cascade sour lineup. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Fredfest. Pours purplish red with a tiny pink head and a blueberry aroma. There is a hearty sweet malt flavor with a hint of candi sugar and lots of blueberry. There is a noticeable wine barrel influence but the bourbon is barely detectable. An extremely good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
EBF. Pours a cloudy purple with a small pink-ish head that fades fast and don’t leave much lacing. Nose is of flowers, cherry and light tart and vinous (a good change of pace when it comes to Cascade sours). Taste is moderately tart (nice) and fruity. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and acidity level is just perfect and surprising for a Cascade sour. Pleasing, I’d drink that again!
