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 don’t 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.

2009 vintage bottle from the brewery. Deep orange color with a medium white head. Tart aroma with lots of fruit; apple is apparent. Sour flavor with light malt and a nice bright fruitiness. Medium-light body with an acidic finish. Good straight-ahead flavors but just not as interesting as some of their fruit sours.

A: The pour is a dark orange color with a nice (but small) white head on it. S: The aroma is fairly citrus heavy and fruity. Notes of grapefruit, apples, and green grapes. Quite a decent "funk" considering that Cascade doesn’t use any brett. Leather, earth, and wine round things out. T: A nice sourness is present right up front. Lactic (lemon) notes along with some pungent grapefruit and a tannic/dry oak quality to the beer. A touch of vinegar, a touch of sweetness...fairly complex, I must say. M: The body is medium with a fair amount of carbonation and a dry finish to it. D: This is a much needed redemption after my taste of Bourbonic Plague. Another good wild ale from the guys up at Cascade.

Tap @ Stone Sour Fest 2010. Pours a lately hazed gold with a frothy white head. Light tart citrus and dry oak on the nose. Flavor was quite sour and complex with a heavy malt base that also holds a ton of different sour qualities, citrus, oak, and some diacytal.

What I thought was the unsung hero of sour fest, for some reason not hailed like Bourbonic (poor guy just isnt as rare as his younger brother), lots of malt complexity, tasted like a tripel gone wild, loads of sourness with not too much vinegar at all, nice levels and layers of funk, hints of belgian pale sugars, just an amazing complex and tasty beer.

Stone sourfest. Clear bright orange with white head. Nose is sweet Belgian malts and fruits, woody oak, light tartness. Flavor is tart acidic fruit up front that transitions to bready malts, hints of cherries and bitter hops, a very interesting Belgo-cherry tart sour offering full of flavor.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2010
Hazy murky looking amber with a dense off-white head. Yeasty, mature fruity and slightly sour and funky aroma of dried fruit, mature apples, fresh citrus with wood and a minimal touch of alcohol. Extremely fruity flavor, starts quite sweet and yeasty with lots of oranges, grapes, fruit sugars followed by very dry and fresh slightly acidic and complex woody vanilla finish. Mouthfeel is lovely, fine tuned with plenty of life. Fantastic.

[2957-20100626] Tap. Something like a sour yeast aroma that is strong and fresh. Slightly hazy, medium orange body with a big medium-lasting foamy white head and lovely lattice lacing. Sour lovely yeast flavour with complex citrus juices in a barrel with hints of butterscotch. Medium body is very sour. Sweeter than it should be as it was just kegged (caveat from the brewer, very nice guy) but really wonderful to try.

2010-06-26. Lightly hazy golden body, large foamy white head and lace. Really nice aroma, lovely mild funk, kisses of floral with lots of subtlety that are frankly beyond my vocabulary and further dissection ability today. Pleasant fruity sourness in the flavour, brief but lovely tropical fruit character. Mild wood notes linger in the aftertaste adding an interesting sweetness to it, but each new sip ushers in a fresh wave of sourness. Smooth A young sample diverted from the kegging process, the brewer advises that it will get more sour with age. 8+ Smooth average plus bodied palate suits the beer wonderfully. Just lovely. More please. On Tap at Raccoon Lodge, Portland.

"Experimental Unpronounceable" 2010-06-26. Delivered by the bartender as a mystery sample. If I understand the brewer correctly its a batch of the blackberry that got unintentionally infected with brett, but since they don’t really know if or how its going to get released I am going to enter my notes here, just because. Murky golden amber body with a smooth foamy white head. Fruity funk aroma, touch of pineapple and tropical fruit. 7+ Flavour is fairly sour, fruit, pineapple, tropical fruit. 9+ Smooth average plus palate. Super yummy. Gotta love a brewer who’s "mistakes" are better than half the beers in the state. Yumm! 7+/4/9+/4/17 On Tap at Raccoon Lodge, Portland.
