On tap at the Cascade Barrel house. Reddish orange, with a frothy white head. Smells like ...strawberries? Yep, strawberries. Flavor is also tart, citrusy, winey strawberry. Some notes of balsamic vinegar, too. Really good.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Hazy orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of some strawberry with some light tart notes. The flavor is better than the aroma. I get a ton of strawberry and cream notes as well as some light tartness and a bit of leather. Very juicy and fruity overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

750mL. Full haze, light orange pour. Large, thick white head with nice lace. Very nice. Nose is plastic/phenols, juicy and fresh strawberry. Phenol is just too high. Taste is tannic, tart, restrained acetic acid, white wine, peach. Soft, juicy. Pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, 2012 vintage. Nose starts with Brett, oak barrel and light berry notes. Flavors starts with lactic sourness follow by oaky wood, light funky barn yard notes. The berry is very subtle and an afterthought at this point in the aging. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. 2012 Project. Courtesy of GandGKevin. Thanks Kevin! Golden bodied with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is surprisingly sweet at first with strawberry jam up front followed by tart berry notes, wheat, light lemon, funky yeast, leather notes and earthiness. Taste ups the sourness a tad with more tart berries, unripe strawberries, hints of strawberry jam, wet wood, earthy notes, strong yeast funkiness, light leather and lemon juice. Body is light-medium and dry with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Pleasant acidic feel throughout. More sour berries and funky yeast during the finish along with wheat notes, earthy notes, lemon juice, wet leather, wet wood and softer strawberries. Damn nice!
