Pours a hazy, light golden color with a white head. Aroma of sour ale, oak, and a hint of grape. The grapes really come through in the flavor, where they turn a typically great Cascade sour into something more unique. There is an odd, subtle taste of grape-flavored vitamin pills. Otherwise, an enjoyable sour.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. It was part of a great tasting that included seven bottled Cascade sours. The beer pours a hazy medium-yellow with a white head. The aroma is white wine and ginger ale. The flavor is heavy on the white wine with some herbs including rosemary and ginger. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2010
750. Pours a copper color with a very large foamy white head. Aroma shows intense spiciness. Nutmeg, cinnamon, potpourri. Some mint and even rosemary come out at warmer temps. Flavor is fairly sour with that rosemary flavor. This is certainly an out of the ordinary sour. I am not a fan of the spicy aspects of this though it is interesting.

SaeBass- why do I need to trade for Cascade? You have 2 of every one! Thanks for sharing this one. Pours caramel brown with a white head. Nose is malt, pear, white grapes, oak, and vinous fruit. Flavor is similar with malt, some sweetness, vinous fruit, grapes, tartness, vinegar, and wood. Very enjoyable beer overall.

Somehow neglected to rate previously. Bottle from a trade a ways back. Pours a blondish orange, hazy. Solid carbonation and frothy head. Nose of lemons, white wine, herbs and spice. Sour. Taste is pretty solid, rich body, no alcohol jumps through, but I draw out plenty of esters behind the brash sourness. Excellent.
