3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at EBF, 3/22/14
Light amber body shows good clarity with a small off-white head with moderate to low retention.
Big and fruity nose is very inviting; tons of raisins, plums, strawberries and just a touch of leather and vanilla to soften things. Not overly sweet or alcoholic given its size.
Pretty straightforward flavor has a great balance of acetic elements without it or the malt sweetness getting out of control thanks to a moderate amount of oak dryness and some dry lactic notes. A touch of cheesey funk, berry skins and dry vanilla mix with light toffee and raisins on the finish. Carbonation is moderate to slightly low and the alcohol, while helping dry the flavor, does thin out the perceived body, on the finish, somewhat. Can’t argue with the flavors though, and as we’ve come to expect from Cascade, they demonstrate so much skill with these style of beers. Great stuff. Now to try the other 100 sours I havent had from them....

Decided to finally crack this. 750mL of cloudy burnt orange, with a fuzzy cap that reduces to spotty film. Aroma of wood, bourbon,sour peach and apricot, vinegar. Taste is a punch of sour and tart, ending with a nice sweetness. Medium carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel.

A big light berry sour smell comes off it. Not a big sour but a decent tart comes off. A small boozy background as it warms. Good stuff.

750mL bottle, several years old. Poured clear, fiery orange with a nice cap of mostly white head. The aroma picked up strong berried vinegar and oaky notes over softer berry meat, darker fruits, and rich bread.. warm and engaging. The flavor opened with a tart kick of cherry skins, oak, and vinegar, with the cherries driving through the rest of the drink.. notes of molasses, dates, dark fruit, and rich cherry meat supported.. peppery bourbon and vinous notes joined cherry zest and oak on the edges.. finished sour (but not overly so) with some belly warmth. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation.. good feel from the sourness, but I wanted to get more of the base beer from it.
