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 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.

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.

Bottle: The aroma consists of yeast, cherries, citrus notes, and vanilla. It pours a hazy dull orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with cherries and citrus. The fiunish has tart lemon, vanilla, and oak. Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

GABF ’09.
If only I could take a bottle of this with me when my buddies and I venture on the Dracula trail in Romania... Pours an average yellow with an aroma of malty sour peach. Flavor is tart grapefruit-peach. Thick on the tongue. Nice beer; worthy of it’s namesake.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
750ml unlabeled bottle brought to my tasting by WeeHeavySD, thanks Jon. Rating #32. Really beautiful dark copper color with a small head. Dark fruitiness with a slight sour tinge to it. Sweet and sour flavor, a touch of raisins and another frutiness as well, really quite drinkable and very good. (1142)

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a deep dark pitch black color with a frothy 1.5 finger light beige creamy head with excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of of soapy lacing left behind. Deep roasted silky chocolate malty aroma with hints of toffee roasted coffee bean, caramel, toffee, and subtle hops. The roasted notes are not overpowering allowing the chocolate mocha note to shone through. Very roarty up front with a slightly viscous medium body. Lots of bittersweet dark chocolate and bitter earth hops. Strong bitter roster espresso bean flavor with chewy chocolate malts, earthy hops, toffee and burnt toast/coffee notes. The roasted flavor is a bit overpowering, taking away from the silky chocolate notes but overall this beer is decently balanced. The strong roaster character makes it slightly less quaffable and a touch harsh but I’m still putting this one down pretty quickly.

Huge sour notes in the aroma and flavor. Citrus and big alcohol flavors. Huge beer and the last pour from the keg for the fest. I liked this beer, Cascade is doing great these days.
