Growler. Pours cloudy reddish apricot. Medium off-white head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is really strawberries and cream, with a healthy funky basement note, plus some vanilla and oak. Flavor is light plus tart, medium funk, strawberry, vanilla, lactose, oak, horse blankets, faint mushroom. Medium body. A very tasty beer, perhaps would be better with a bit less funk.

Westmeister (2061) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Draft at the brewery. One of the more less tart Cascade brews but quite enjoyable. The vanilla adds the creaminess, sweet and semi tart strawberries. Real nice.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange pink with small off white head. The aroma is strong cream and strawberry seed. Medium mouth, cream, tart strawberry, funky, very good.

[2/25/15] Draught at Cascade Brewing Barrel House in Portland. Cloudy orange. Big vanilla and strawberries aroma. Sourish-sweetish flavor with strawberries, lacto and some vanilla. Medium-bodied. Very good.

douglas88 (7180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2015
On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a cloudy orange yellow color with a small white head. A big fresh nose of vanilla, berries, clear wood. The flavor is authentic strawberries and cream for sure, vanilla beans. Sweet throughout, only slight elements of sourness. Lovely.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Straight from the barrel at Cascade Barrel House in Portland, OR on 29 May 2013. Hazy pinkish blonde pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is a very definitely strawberries and cream, some acidic sourness in there too, so its not sickly. Full flavours; harmonic sweet, sugary strawberries, good sour elements and some dry grains.

Draft at Racoon Lodge.

This one was listed as Strawberry, but the bartender claims it is actually the vanilla-added Strawberries and Cream -- they stuck with the Strawberry moniker to keep things simple.

Very much of a strawberries and cream thing going on in the aroma, like the lifesavers candy, a bit of lemon in addition to the strawberries and vanilla. Flavor is not so sour, following the aroma quite closely: strawberries, lemon, vanilla, a hint of bourbon. Fairly light and refreshing despit a listing of 7.1 ABV%. Quite a respectable fruit sour. I feel like Im lowballing a bit at 3.8.

Theydon_Bois (12590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
From the Barrel at Cascade, PDX, 22/05/13. Listed 7.17%. Lightly hazed pale blonde with a reddish tinge and a very thin white head. Nose is strawberries and cream, light sour notes. Tate comprises tarte strawberries married with sweet cream, light sours, funk, touch of cobwebs, sugars, light wood. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tarte fruit finish, delicate puckerings. Ok drinkable stuff - delivered what it said on the tin but too sweet for a sour.

From the live barrel. Golden red color. Sour and tart but refreshing with hints of vanilla, strawberry that are balanced fantastically too.
