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.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle @ 10 East - Aroma - strawberries and some funk wafting from the glass. Nothing overly impressive, but nice for sure. Appearance - cloudy medium copper body, foamy white head with medium retention. Flavor - jammy strawberry flavor, medium sourness, light funk present and some zesty lemon notes. Palate - spritzy/high-carbonation..light/medium bodied. Overall - it manages to deliver a full fruit profile along with some zingy pucker power with some funk. The high price tag brings the party down a few spots, but the beer in the bottle is quite solid.

11/30/2014. From bottle. Reddish amber with a white head. Cheesy yeast aromas with hints of strawberries. Tart and sour, strawberry flavors, Brett, oak. Long bitter finish. Awesome!

Dr_Fellini (545) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is a magnificent tart, oak, light berry notes. Flavor has a huge sourness, Brett, hidden strawberry character in the background. Solid lingering tartness, but with a strange funk at the finish. Overall another solid sour from Cascade.

Hazy brilliant copper with a little rosey hue. Strong strawberry nose with a big sour fruity twang. Big sour flavor with large fruity sourness--like, quite sour and a little puckering but with a sweet and juicy strawberry tone. Balances nicely with a funky lacto backbone that’s tart and drying.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro. pours hazy/cloudy bright golden with avery nice off-whtie head, good retention and lacing. wild strawberries - obvious, clean and deliciously fragrant, soft tannins and oakiness, light supporting acidity - lactic and citric mostly, leafy and grassiness, pale clean maltiness with a wheat whisper. no rubber or wax perceived. lively carbonation, light body, dry, gently tart and grassy-woodsy-leafy finish. not the most complex strawberry wild concotion, but surely effective with its clean and fresh strawberry flavours. very good!

La fraise est tellement exubérante que je dois lui donner le mérite d’avoir vaicu l’effort du caoutchouc. Elle a perdu un peu de son désagréable enrobage en respirant mais j’aurais facilement pu donner 4.4 sans ce léger éteignoir.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
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 (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.
