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.

2012 vintage 750ml scott purchased directly from cascade in January 2014. Think it was $20. Label says 7.1% ABV. Pours a hazy peach color with a very large bottle conditioned type head. Not a gusher, though. Aromas of yogurt, strawberry kefir, oak. Taste is moderate to heavy sour with low bitterness, even for this style. Flavor is strawberry Greek yogurt with all the grittiness included along with strawberry seeds and oak branches. Very impressive. High carbonation. Phlegm inducing. Finish is puckering and satisfying, with a noticeable amount of sweaty tartness, berries and twigs. Iím pretty sure I could drink this all night. Not the best beer Iíve ever had, but itís pretty damn close.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 A very nice vinous sour aroma with a light strawberry aroma. Taste is nice and sour. Prob 7 out of 10 on the sour scale. Slight strawberry taste. Not overwhelming or sweet. Carbonation disappears fast on this one, that is prob the only real negative. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 7, 2013
750 ml corked bottle (2011 project, 7,39% ABV). A hazy medium red/amber beer, with a large, extremely fizzy, fast and almost completely collapsing white head. The aroma is very lightly malty (bread), lightly to moderately yeasty (barnyard), with strong notes of strawberries (fresh, bubblegum and yoghurt ones), other notes of wood and perhaps peach. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, lively but fading carbonation, pretty long anf fairly dry finish with a touch of bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Not extremely complex, but it definately surpassed my expectations. Powerful and fresh nose with plenty of strawberries and very clean flavors. Maybe Iíve been a tad too generous woith the appearence score, but the color is body color is beautiful and I thought this underrated stuff deserves a little bit more consideration.

Usually strawberry beers fail but this one kills it. Super sour, tart, acidic, dry. Pleanty fo strawberry flavor. Plenty of lemon and grapefruit pith.

Bottle shared with friends. Gotta love Cascade sours! They do it right! This one is straight up strawberry all around, thereís no escaping it. Good tart sour flavor as well. A real jaw tickler.

Pours hazy copper with a white head. Strawberry aroma. Moderate sour flavor with the cleanest strawberry Iíve had. Tart/sour all the way with ongoing fruit. Delicious. Winey in a way. Excellent.

Bonus points for smelling almost exactly like the sweet/tart strawberry glaze my wife makes for topping cheesecake. Must find a way to eat a slice while drinking a glass of this... Almost didnít sample this one, thinking How different could it be than the other fruits? Glad we stuck around for one more round.

On tap at barrelhouse. Pours hazy orange cream with a small white head. Smell is fantastic fresh strawberry and wheat. Taste is light tart, acidic strawberry flavor. Itís like eating a Doles fruit bar. Great!
