COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour is a crisp, refreshing wheat beer that was barrel-aged for seven months then additionaly aged with strawberries for another eight months. Bright, sweet strawberries and light candy notes greet you in the nose. A light tartness and berry sweetness intermingle on the palate, giving way to a light, sparkling fresh berry tartness in the finish. It is better as a breakfast beer or a dessert? You decide.

Tepid opaque honey. Tons of sugary strawberry, lime zest and plastics, some glue. More glue and strawberry at the front, sticky mid with plenty of berry through the dirty finish, hints of plastic and rind. Too sticky, thick for soft error-riddled profile. Very typical of Cascade.

Awesome strawberry integration - has a tempering effect on the sourness. Pours cloudy orange with pinkish tint and ok head and lacing. Nice fruit. Finishes sweet and sour in good balance. I like this one. Bottle thanks to GEV46 at Epic Sour Tasting.

Bottle @ home, thanks to arminjewell. Thanks ! Pours a milky orange appearance with a white head. Aroma has some funk, lots of strawberries, juicy berries, vanilla, and oak. Moderately sour. Strawberry shortcake flavor. Not super sweet but still tons of strawberries. Some acid on the finish. Refreshing and easy to drink. Chill brew.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange red pour with white head, aroma brought big strawberry, nice oak, vanilla, hints of lemon, slight earthy, sweet biscuit and bready notes. Taste is a mix of sweet strawberry, seeds, grassy notes into some lemon, earth, slight oak, touch of orange in there, finishing with some vanilla, sour lacto. Pretty nice, tasty stuff, very drinkable.
