4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Naven brought a bottle of this by for the unofficial Death Metal Beer Tasting that we had at my pad last week. I cannot come up with enough clever notes that havenít been said already, but know that this is a great sour ale and definitely worth seeking out. Oh, hell, who am I kidding... I was already pretty well on my way when we cracked this open. All I remember is that it lives up to the score it has. Sour like all, get out.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle at home. 2011 project. Pours cloudy dark orange with a tiny off-whte fine bubbled head. Nice carbonation level, soapy legs. Spicy oaky aromas, a little dusty, sweet peach lemon wine gum, a bit of pear. Medium body with loads of sweetness, sour lactic character coming through a bit but still ok, dusty notes coming back in the end as well. Taste is sweet peach, some malt flavours. This is a nice American sour I must admit.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
