750 cc from Capone’s, and CAH. Pours turbid canary toward orange with minimal white head and heavy champagny carbonation. Pours yeasty spicy, very fruity, with grapey notes, hops, citrus, and a great complexity. Tastes champagney, oaky, earthy, with heavy charonnay influences, and a finishing tartness, A lot of fruit here, chardonnay, tartness, and oaky notes, all integrated extremely well. This one is a true highlight of 2010 so far, and is absolutely incredible.

Draught at Baileys. Sour, grape - the grape really lingers for awhile for you. A very nice beer and one of the best of my trip to Portland.

The pour reveals a cloudy dark gold color with a thin white head. Very appealing aroma of grapes, wood, yeast and sourness. Solid flavor of wood, grapes, sourness and yeast. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. Yet another impressive sour ale from Cascade.

750 ml bottle. A gift from a friend (Joel) for my 25th bday. 07.17.10. The pour was a light, golden yellow color with a thick head. A very well carbonated beer without being overly done. The nose here is white grape, Chardonnay tannins, sharp aged cheese, lemon zest, and oak. Taste was lightly tannic, light vinegar (compared to their Kriek or Cuvee), white grape, Chardonnay, oak (for sure), light sour apple, and lemon zest that finishes with another round of white grape. A truly delicious American styled sour. P.S. The people that rated this beer so low should rate it against other sours they’ve tried and not against what they like. How do you think beer judges rate beer? They rate it against the way a style is supposed to be presented. P.P.S. This is truly a great and refreshing sour and Cascade has quickly become my favorite sour ale brewer.

aroma is highly tart with a mild touch of grape jelly. this beer has a very smooth taste but the grapes come through at the end bringing a great circle of flavors all around. very tart yet different enough.

nick76 (4300) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2010
The aroma is sour fruit with malt and wild yeast. The appearance is cloudy gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a medicinal quality. The palate is smooth. Overall this is yet another sour beer that fails to impress me.

hopscotch (9953) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky apricot-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Fantastic creamy retention. The nose is totally funkadelic – chardonnay, barnyard, fallen wood, sharp cheese, lemon and fuzzy fruits. Full-bodied and creamy with active carbonation. Moderately sour, bready, lightly bitter and very fruity – apricot, lemon and a whisper of sour cherry. Tart, crisp, mildly woody finish. Totally blown away by this world class brew I picked up in little old Vero Beach, Florida… life is good.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 Bottle purchased from Capone’s after talking with Matt. Split with dallas and Pat. Pours a bright, cloudy & hazy yellow body with nice carbonation and head. Aroma is strong white grapes, peach, oak, and sweet tart. The Mouthfeel is ridiculous tartness that gropes the taste buds. Notes of white grape, sweet grape candy, sour tart peach, honey, slight oak maybe.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with James and Dallas. Pours a bright, hazy, bubbly champagne golden with a modest, thin, lacy white head. The aroma on this brew is insane: strong notes of sour white grapes, grape Jolly Ranchers, champagne yeast, peaches, oak, vanilla, and very subtle hints of malt. Medium bodied with an intensely refined, supportive palate that transitions the tongue seamlessly from the huge fruity swell up front to the silky-sour finish. This is quite a unique brew. Excellent sour.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 9, 2010
A hazy peach pour with a lively frothy white head that dissipates slowly. The aroma is like an ultra dry Chardonnay or Pinot- lots of light grape notes with oaky funk, and farm. The flavor is bursting nectar-fruit glory with a big oak character that finishes with highly attenuated white grapes. The palate is lively in its effervescence, making for a pillowy texture and a semi dry finish.
