Poured from bottle into goblet. Pours a very rich gold with small-bubbled white head. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is full of tartness, apricot, and just a touch of raspberry. Pleasantly tart with balance from the fruit. Wishing for a bit more raspberry notes, but very good.

750ml bottle @ home(thanks Jamey). 2014 Vintage
Pours a cloudy pink/golden colour with a white head. Nose is classic Cascade sour, and stone fruits notes. Flavour is also classic Cascade style, quite sour, however dry, oak barrels, and a nice fruity character which comes from the raspberries and apricots.

TimE (5372) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2016
Amber hazy color. Very tart tons of soft fruit notes of strawberries and apricots with some oak in the background. Very tart, tons of fruit in the mouth with tons of strawberries and apricots. Very sour. Tons of oak and vanilla with fruit lingering finish. Very sour, well made, but predictable brew. I was kinda hoping for something a bit strange and different, but didnt blow me away.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Draft at Bainbridge. Unusual rose gold pour with a slim off-white ring and a splash of lace. Sharply tart but quickly balanced by complex malts. Bright amber and berry fruit. Raspberry. Apricot. Cranberry. Dragonfruit. Kiwi. Peach. Sour cherry. Currant. Lingonberry. Lots of fresh oak. Medium body. High ABV smoothed out by the tannins. Well aged. Well crafted. Well done!
