Wood aged Pale Quadruppel. Imagine a blend of Scaldis and Cantillon Pure Kriek. Forget it, there is nothing like it (yet). Vlad is shocking to your sour beer senses and taste buds, which do not understand that such a balanced delicate sour beer can be so drinkable and appeal to so many people while being extreme. But donít forget, it will still open a can of 10.6% whoop-ass on your ass after all the pomp & circumstance of what an amazing beer it is subsides.

Poured out of bottle. Again big thanks goes out to Alex, Chris, and Jason!! Thanks for sharing this while I was in Chicago. Full of sour funkness. Slight fruit notes, cherries and tart lime. Flavor wasnít as tart as I was expecting, I suppose it was a little mellow, but still an outstanding sour.

750 ml bottle as a bonus (!) in a BA trade. 2009 vintage. Pours a murky golden color with a small white head. Looks like a fresh apple juice. Aroma of apples, white grapes, lactic acid, oak, and vanilla. Most of the wine and bourbon is gone but the booze is present. Flavor of apples, white grapes, lemon, oaky funk, honey, and vanilla. Same goes for the nose in terms of discernable barrel characters; itís there but a bit washed together. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, coating, and tart mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Really complex, fun-to-drink sour.

A cloudy medium yellow body that forms a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is tart and spicy, acetic. The flavor starts sweet and quickly turns sour. Nice.

Big thanks to Todd for sharing this one to kick off the tasting! Pale Quad, eh? Perhaps that makes a bit more sense than a conventionally understood wild ale. Dark amber pour, fairly moderate head. Nice bourbony nose, not too aggressive and so the wet wood and tartness are still detectable. Medium, semi-playful palate with some heat and a still somewhat dry finish. More wine character emerges in the taste, not as buggy as a lot of wilds, and it combines interestingly with the bourbon to make this a distinctive strong sour.

I ordered this a while back from Cascade and it took me longer than I thought it would to crack it open. The pour is a rustic golden color with a solid white head that settles as a long-lasting thin layer. This is funky and fruity in the aroma with cherries, apple, some white wine, and barrel notes. The bourbon is burried in there and takes some digging to find. This is far more drinkable and easy going than I expected for a 10%+ beer. Tart citrus and lactic sour flavors; funky peach and oranges, along with barrel notes, and soft bourbon in the finish. The bourbon is more noticeable in the flavor but itís still not overly strong. I donít pick up any Quad flavors. Not sure if I am supposed to or not. This is a very interesting beer and one that I enjoyed quite a bit. Again, itís far more delicate and drinkable than Iíd normally expect from a beer with this much alcohol, which is a good thing. As with every other Cascade Sour Iíve had, this one is plenty sour and good but itís not intensely sour or anything.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 A good sour beer with a lot of sweeter fruity and sugary flavors that sets it apart from the pack. Lactic tartness is nice and light acetic acid adds a good amount of burn without being too much. Really freaking awesome beer.
