COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bright golden orange with some haze and one finger of offwhite head. Nose is nice and tart with some citrus zest and acidity. Flavor shows some bourbon and oak with a nice sessionable tartness and mild sweetness.

TURDFERGUSON (3970) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Bottle shared by Todd. Thanks. One of the first beers of a recent gathering. Lots of acetic acid, citrus, honey, bugs. Flavor is a mix of sweet and sour flavors, strong acidity present throughout. This was a little messy, but I kind of liked it.

Bottle shared by Mike. Thanks! This one was a slow gusher! Pours murky orange color with thick pillows for a head. Aroma is a great mix of funk and wild yeast. Has a bit too much carbonation. Only real knock on this great beer. Flavor has such a nice meld of funky barnyard leather goodness and tartness. The combo of how this smells and tastes is what makes this such a great beer. It is just wonderful.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with a short white head leaving coarse lace. You know itís a Belgian style from the nose and there is a bit of sweetness. The medium-light body is somehow refreshing and includes nice toasty malts, a fruit (apple, pear) sweetness and the oak enters late and adds a funky umami to the finish. Very late there is a slight metallic taste. ABV is very well hidden, drink with caution. This is a home run from Cascade.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Sour and tart on the nose with a hint of raspberry. Straw colored pour with thin white head. Soured berry with a hint of bread in the background. Acerbic finish that is dry. Thin and light bodied. Very pleasant.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle: † Rosey colored amber, pale haze, moderate to large rocky white head, fairly assertive lacing. † Getting some white wine and oak on the nose, and of course a nice funky sourness. † This one smells great! † Sour up front, very tart, but it has a bit of unripened fruit like sweetness.   Getting grape skin, white wine, oak, and a whole lot of funk and mustiness. † I like this one, its sour without being overly puckering. † Has a tart yet somewhat sweet unripened fruit aspect that works well. † Nice balance on this. † A little bubbley on the tongue, just the right amount. † Wow, this is good stuff! † One of the better PNW sours I have had.

(GABF 2010) clear gold with white soapy bubbles. Nose of berries, tart cherries and funk. Taste is very tart, vinous, tobacco and grapes. Soft carbonation, and extremely long tangerine linger.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Aroma:Huge overpowering sour aroma. Some grapes in there. Appearance:Cloudy and golden in color. Taste:Great clean sour flavor. Some wine notes. Not as sour as the smell might suggest though. Palate:There is some harsh astringency that Iíve grown to expect from sours. Overall:A very drinkable sour beer.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2011
On tap at Cascade Brewing Barrell House. Served in a tulip. Poured a cloudy orange with white head. Aroma and flavor both sour with some nice citrus in and wood in the flavor. A bit of alcohol noted, but not too much. Would have probably rated higher, but not a huge fan of the styl as Iím new to it. Would try again though.
