Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear olden color with a small white head that fades into a thin ring. The aroma has a tart white grape juice, white wine, oak, musty notes, some sweetness with a hint of citrus. The flavor has sweet white grape juice, tart, lightly acidic, oak, musty, with a mild vinous character. Interesting and pretty tasty.

AdamJackson (2105) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Purchased online from Casdade. Enjoyed in a wine glass at 60F

A - Gorgeous golden orange, nice fizzy head that fades to a small head

S - Smells just like childhood. Seriously, I grew up in Alabama and used to pick muscadines from alongside the trails behind my house. I’d eat more than I picked. Reminds me of that perfectly.

T - Wow...and tastes like muscadines. It has that mustiness, tart and high tannic almost mouth numbing texture. If you put a muscadine in the side of your cheek, it makes it numb...reminds me exactly like that. not too sour, not too sweet. Pretty remarkable. I want more!!!

M - Big mouthfeel on the swish, huge carbonation. nice tart sweet finish.

O - This is a fantastic beer. I must order more of this.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a mostly lasted fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, tart fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 On tap, pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of belgian yeast, cloves, oak, grapes, apple and pear. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a good sour bite. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall this is a really solid sour you can definitely taste the mix between the soured quad, tripel and blond, with wine grapes and the oak. Looking forward to trying thier other beers.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Sample at the Barrel House. Slighly hazed honey-gold color with a thin white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Vinous aroma with notes of apples and oak. Medium body with flavors of tart funky fruit, oak and earthy yeast. The finish is fruity with a spice and white wine aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

I get and love everything Cascade does, the wine grapes only add another dimension to the perfect blends. Sweet tart sour oaky grapy goodness. I am addicted!

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks Tmoney99). Looks good; a slightly hazy gold with white lacing. Smells solid; a nice white wine presence with some yeast notes too. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel and a pleasantly dry mouthfeel. Good stuff.

BOLTZ7555 (2709) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle acquired via trade with Homer321...thanks Sean! Golden tangerine pour with a small eggshell cap that dissipates quickly. Really funky, assertive aroma of grapefruit pith, barnyard, wet grass, oak, Chardonnay, and lemon zest. Similar flavors with tart unripened fruit, some vinegar notes, and lactic qualities. Highly drinkable for 10%...dangerous in that regard. Delicious!

Draft at 16 Tons Cafe, Eugene. Vintage 2011. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Grapes are huge in nose. Body is very lively, nice tartness, warming well-hidden, finishes very dry and subtle. Cascade knows barrels.
