Bottle: Thanks Pushkin: Chouffe glass:
This is a seriously dangerous close and subliminal copy of a perfect Belgian sour ale. Super funky and heavy bretty with an incredble fruity balanced beer.
Insanely rich! Smooth yet tart! Lots of fruits, specially orange... Just freaking awesome!
One of the best from Cascade! And they never let me down!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at RBScSG in Gothenburg. Pours murky burnt yellow with a small offwhite head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, fruity and slightly funky with crackers, white bread, cereal, lemon juice, pineapple, guava, hay, dry soil, barnyard, white winje vinegar, lemon zest and hints of vanilla. Taste is tiny sweet, sour, fruity and tiny funky. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny dry, tart, tiny throat-burning acetic, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and sour with crackers, white bread, lemon juice, mango, pineapple, guava, passion fruit, hay, dry soil, barnyard, apple cider vinegar and lemon zest. Vinegar bugs me but there’s less of it in this than the Sangs we tried earlier in the tasting. nicely fruity with a subtle yet nice brett presence.
