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.

My Bottom Line:
Strawberry jam turns into moderate tartness, as wax-y moments and mineral bursts mar what could have been a very nice sour ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the pinkish red.
-Shoe sole wafts aren’t too pleasant.
-Acidity level is not too intense.
-Strawberries are actually easily perceived and pleasant; it’s just that they turn to rubber and wax at times...

Bottle; gros merci Martin et Michèle!

Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy golden with medium off-white head. Aroma is of fruits, berries, strawberry jam. Taste is of strawberry jam, sugar, berries, water, acid. Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Very nice stuff. Not overdone at all on acid.

tom10101 (3906) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Hazy golden/orange with a small off-white bubbly head. Aroma is enticing with a very nice wild strawberries presence, hay, light acidic notes, citrus presence and lactic presence. Taste is slightly sweet (not cloying at all) with a nice wild strawberries presence, hay, lactic notes, citrus and hints of oak. Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Superb wild strawberry aroma/flavor with a nice lactic touch that enhance drinkability. Quite tasty even tough not super complex.

JulienHuxley (4243) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting. Hazy gold pour with thin white head. Straight up strawberries on the aroma, really nice fruity wild strawberries, light lemony and plain yoghurt lactic aromas. Taste is lactic, nice fresh strawberries, beautiful bright wild strawberry and plain yoghurt flavor. Pretty simple aroma and flavor profile but oh so delicious. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2014 Pours a hazy golden with a small white rim that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of fruits, pretty sure they are strawberries and thank god, no acetic acid/vinegar like a lot of Cascade’s products. Taste is also of light and natural strawberries and not too acid. Body is light and almost watery, carbonation is medium-high. Overall a really nice Cascade, I’d drink that again!

Blindprovad. Doft av utedass och jordgubbe. Plastig i smaken med jordgubbe av syntetisk karaktär. Syran känns lagom.

Excellent wild ale from upright. Big winey and cherry aroma upon pouring. Moderate level of funk and sour in the flavor especially. Seamlessly blended, and delicious."

From a 750ml. The nose is pure strawberry. So much so that I thought Id be strawberry coolaid on the palate so it lowered my expectations. The palate, however, is very nice with medium sourness and the essence of strawberry without being sweet. I guess this is everything I was expecting. Very good.
