75CL. How have I now had this one? Pinkish Purple Appearance. Smells insanely sour like a nectarine and grapefruit aroma. Holy moly, this is sour. Like biting into a lemon with chalk, blackberry jam, juicy fruit and vinegar. remaining flavor is all oak.

Thank you kraddel! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ "Adam Chandler Visiting (for real this time)" Tasting. 2014 Vintage. Dark berry red, head fizzes away. Nose is mellow vinegar, blackberry skins, acidic, blueberry pulp with vinegar qualities. Taste is puckering medium vinegar blackberries, acidic, acidic vinegar. Too carbonated, some vinegar fizzy. Not the best Cascade but a decent USA Vinegar forward sour, bit too fizzy. Simple but not bad.

Rating #1800 - 2015.06.29 - 750mL Bottle - Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is blackberry ham, sour plum tartness - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart berry notes, oaky vanilla sweetness from the barrel component - Nice.
