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.

Tasted on 9/30/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle sent to me by Chris, big thanks. Pours hazy dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sour and dusty with some sweet caramel malt, funky yeast, and some oak treatment that has both vanilla and vinous notes. The flavor is a bit more barrel focused with the vanilla and vinous notes taking over, a nice sourness, and sweet caramel malt, very interesting. The body is full with a bit of an oily texture, some tannin, average carbonation, and a long sour and vinous wine barrel finish.

Cloudy pale yellow. Bit of sour. Flavors are pretty mellow, especially for something over 10%. itís Ok. Donít see what the big deal is.

Corked bottle pour, shared. Thanks so much D! Pours a super cloudy golden color with a sweet citrus fruit aroma. Lemon and citrus flavor with a nice oaky flavor to compliment. A little bit of white grape too. Unique from the other Cascade sours for sure. Really nice beer.

Bottle shared by Bill, pours clearish golden orange. Notes of wood, booze, sticky fruit, weird funk, and pepper. This is not good, not sure if its always been like this.

tmrmwel (1138) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, with a creamy head. Aroma is very nice sour and fruity, with some farmyard and brett, oak, balsamico and lacto. Creamy body, with light carbonation. Flavour is acidic with lots of fruitiness, brett, lacto and oaken barrels. Easy drinking, and with no alcohol heat. Lingering sour finish.

ALLOVATE (2522) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2014
Deep amber with lively effervescence and misted by proteins in suspension. Lasting white foam with a mirrored sheen. Good lace. Aroma is dominated by lactic, yoghurt and hairy, Hessian Brett. notes. Tart fruit, oxidised white wine, woody spice and alcohol spice with a hint of vanilla and oak. Insanely easy drinking. Hides that ABV. Tart and tight with a penetrating vinous fruit sourness. Light oak and vanillin amongst wonderfully gripping and lasting fruit notes. A little warmth only builds as it warms fully. A little rough with Brett. notes lasting also. Body is light but rounded. Sprightly and lively. Not awfully complex but adorably quaffable. Lovely! (75cL, 2011 vintage, courtesy of the lads at Feral Brewing)

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Light tartness and some white grape. Cloudy gold with a light head. Light sourness, malts and some light tomato with a dry and mild booze finish. The age on this bottle has not improved it, I remember it much better fresh.

Sampled from a bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Gold pour with a white head. Tart / sour fruit plus a little oakiness. This was quite good.

Fatehunter (1467) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a thin head on a cloudy dirty straw colored body. The aroma is sour and grapes, lots of grapes. The taste is sweet and sour, grapes, honey, lemon and oak. Outstanding balanced and depth. The texture is fizzy and crisp. Amazing.
