Bill Becker's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Bill Becker (972) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 10, 2012
2011 Project, bought from the brewery online for $21 It pours a murky rusty colour, started off with over a finger head of foam but that quickly dissipated. Very little lacing left behind. You can certainly smell the sour cherries and the oak barrel. Some slight note of vanilla there. My nose is happy. Tart cherries up front in the taste, oak flavours not so much. Alcohol extremely well hidden when it comes to what sits and swirls in my mouth, some definite warming during and after the swallow. Sour, yeah, but not overly so. Very slight hint of a vinegar sourness so I dont *think* that heartburn will be an issue. Very tasty from the get go; I opened it at near room temp to get all of the flavours rather than opening after pulling from the fridge. A delightfully delicious Wild Ale that I wish had a bit less alcohol to make it even more drinkable; as is, its still and an easy drop to tip back. Im very impressed with what Cascade has made here. They sure do know their s*it.

Pours opaque chocolate brown with a serviceable buff head. Aroma offers a sharp note of tart fruit plus a little toasted malt. Flavor features tart, tart fruit - stone fruit and pomme - and just a hint of malt. Mouthfeel delivers firm body and peppy fizz. Black blood indeed.

ciocanelu (2235) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 10, 2017
Murky dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has balsamic vinegar, plums, tart fruits, some caramel malt in the background. Taste is sour up-front, acetic and astringent, some wood notes and the wine also comes through. Medium body and carbonation, quite dry and acidic. A great flanders style ale with complex flavors.

No head, brown-red clear beer. Fruity nose, dark fruit, plums, alcohol. Speculoos , dark fruit flavours, but sour, acidic, as seemingly all Cascade products. Acidthinning and -burn. Certainly not the worst Cascade, not the best either.
