On tap at Belmont Station’s Puckerfest 2008--Light muddy red body with a thin head. Sweet and malt balance. These are the type of beers this infected brewery should hang with. Yum. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2008
On tap at Belmont Station during their Sourfest. Lighter semi-see through reddish brown hue. Little to no head. Light aroma of sour cherries blended with sweeter malts. Very nice and fairly well balanced sweetness starts the flavor of this. A medium bodied thick syrup coating rings true as the light essence of dark cherry, bits of orange, and a tart tangy finish come through. Definitely a decent sour for no-where Oregon, but I’m into my face puckering just a bit more. Good stuff though. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2008
On tap at Raccoon Lodge. Pours hazy reddish brown with a lacy off-white head. Light body and light carbonation. Lightly sour nose, with cherries and fruit. Sweet-tart cherry lemon taste with a refreshing finish. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2008
draft @ brouwer’s sour fest - dark, reddish brown with slight off-white head; slight tart to aroma, but mixed smoothly with cherries and cream; creamy texture gives way to tart cherries, but very pleasant and fuzzy; flavors of grain, yeast, fruit; dry finish; yummy BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
Amber and clear with miimal head. Nose is lighter with darker plum and cherry notes. This sour is not puckering but sweeter with dark fruit and nice tartness.

Draft at Brouwers Cafe Sourfest. Slightly hazy orangeish dark amber. Dense but thin light creamy head. Soft, tart cherry/vinegar nose, with hints of fruity red wine grape. Medium creamy, a tiny bit of carb’s there to liven up the mouthfeel. Rich tangy red fruits on the mid-palate, fading into sour orange with a sweet and sour lemon finish. Fantastic. theisti (4126) - Kansas, USA - MAY 13, 2008
12 oz draft at Brouwers Cafe Sour Fest in Seattle, Washington. Pour is clear mahogany with only a thin off white head. Aroma is faint, I pick up on some caramel sweetness and lemon sourness. Taste is really full, a bit unexpected after the muted nose; cherry sour sweetness, tart yeastiness in the finish. Acidic throughout. This is a really nice Flanders Red. I have really enjoyed all of the Cascade beers I have tried. I guess you were right Rick.
