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.

arondee (583) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pours an orange hazy color with little to no head. Aroma is sour sugar and belgian yeast. The taste is a great mix of sweet and sour. This is a great beer from cascade.

ALLOVATE (2475) - 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)

Ferris (5006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
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.

BVery (6980) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2014
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 (1401) - 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.

jrob21 (2677) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Sample at first sunday. Got the last pour so a little bit of yeast and grit at the end. Still really complex though. Fruit and fund and wood and oak. A lot going on in the aromas and flavors. Red fruit and plum flavors. Little bit of spice on the finish as well. Every sip is something different and new which is a mark of a ridiculous sour for me.

chinchill (2145) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
750 ml shared bottle. Nice hazy red-amber color. Strong sour aroma with a very rich and complex flavor. Barrel aging is exceptionally well done, with enough added flavor to enhance but not overpower the other, mostly fruity, properties. Moderately tart.

olr1984 (1141) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2014
2011 750ml bottle pours a hazy light gold with a thin off white head. Big oak vanilla and slight tart finish.
