4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ ZZT XI. Hazy orange color, medium sized fizzy white head that disappears almost instantly. Initially the aroma leans towards burning rubber, but when that subsides a lovely soft strawberry aroma is what’s left. Taste is very good as well: soft strawberry, softly sour, other red fruits. Very subtle and very good. Lovely fruit beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour. Thanks D for sharing! Pours an apple juice color with an incredible fresh strawberry aroma. Serious pucker up on this one. Flavor is 10% sweet and 90% sour. I love this much more than I love strawberries. Incredible sour. Loved it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and JJ at Stumbling Monk in Seattle. Hazy bright orange pour, lively white head. Aroma is tart berries and yoghurt. Unripened berry tartness, strawberry sweetness, tart/modestly sour acidic finish. Not over the top with sourness (even Parksy liked this one), and not unbearably sweet with the strawberries (as so many strawberry beers can be). Another great brew from Cascade.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml c&c bottle via online. Poured a slightly hazed deep orange/amber body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma is odd, plasticy, odd strawberry, some odd model plastic bubble stuff that I used to blow baloons up with when I was a kid. Palate is medium overall, average to slightly stronger carbonation and a strong aftertaste. Flavor is better than the aroma, sourness, lemons, acidity, touch of strawberry along with a hint of vinegar.
