Murky and pale gold. Kick ass funk aromas. Very drinkable for being nearly 10%. Light refreshing tart with slight funk and a hint of white grapes.

Draft pour at Tap And Handle. Clear bronze appearance with a small white head. Aroma of acidity, fruity esters, light candy sugar, caramel malt, toffee, light oak, vanilla and banana bread. Similar flavor, mildly sour with a light herbal bitterness. Medium to full body with soft carbonation, a smooth creamy feel and a light puckering finish. Complex and fun to drink.

Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a quickly vanishing head. Nose is a weird combination of malt and... Red Bull (I kid you not). Some peach as well. Medium body, quite sweet and a bit sour, and some tannins - interesting. Unagreeable and unnatural red bull flavours coming back. Mèh.

Un de mes coups de coeur chez Cascade. Merci Alexandre Mathieu pour la dégustation! Je suis immédiatement conquis par ce nez de raisins bleus, frais et vrai. Pour avoir pu comparer plusieurs produits fruités de cette Maison côte à côte, je retrouve dans cette bière l’équilibre parfait entre le fruit et l’acidité que Cascade propose dans l’ensemble de ses produits. Là je suis conquis! En bouche, l’acidité est moyenne et tire ses sources dans un citron jeune. L’effervescence est moyenne. La bière est juste assez ronde pour une bière fruitée forte en alcool sans qu’elle ne soit réellement sucrée pour autant. Très beau produit!

Sour grapes and Chardonnay balance. Lacto tartness and a perception of a tart Belgian candy. Medium carbonation with a dry blanc character.

Bottle sample at a sour tasting at our place. Thanks DSG. Headless opaque blond-brown. Stinky, agricultural stink, funky aroma, very, very funky taste, yeasty, a little earthy and very sour. A little carbonated, very earthy finish.

Bottle shared at a sour tasting at kerenmk’s place. Hazy golden. Big vinous grapes aroma with wood, some lacto, and funk, a bit farty. Sour flavor with grapes, wine, wood, lacto, and an alcoholic touch. Medium-bodied.

Love this type, with big wine notes some fruity esters, some alcohol heat, mild phenolics. Plenty of barrel funk and Brett. Quad style defiantly comes through. Such a great balance of winery character and sour ale character.

Bottle, 2012 Project. Pours hazy golden, small white head that diminishes fairly quickly leaving a ring and some lacing. Aroma is straight up white grape juice, with some funk and oak underneath. Flavor is also very white grape forward, vinous, but not really wine like, really like welch’s grape juice. Oak notes are also prominent, lending some acidity. Light plus tartness, and just enough barnyard funk to keep things interesting. Lightish body, champagne like carbonation. Pretty interesting.
