Tap at OBF. Color is reddish amber. Aroma of sour cooking cherry. Near med body. Flavor is cherry and pretty sour - not overly acidic - but heading that way. Mouth smacking. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2008
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.

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 bitbucket (2166) - 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. theisti (4206) - 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.

Dark red decent bubbly head. Vinagrette aroma. Almost metallic. Oaky sourness. Tart dry w some lactic tartness infinish. Lingering oak notes, dry. Sour but npt too acidic. Good deal of oak, underlying fruity sweetness. Soft tartness. Smooth carb. Nice offering. 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. skoisirius (1908) - 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. AmEricanbrew (7011) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 22, 2008

Clear brown with a thin tan head. Nice sweet/sour caramel aroma with cherry. Mild to medium tart flavor here balanced by a caramel, dark raison, and cherry sweetness. A nice example of the style. [email protected]
Tap @ the Brewery. Out of order rating, but wanted to enter this to push me back into number 1 sour rater slot. Pours dark red with a tan head. Nose is light and sour. Taste is sour, and light and very tart and quite tasty.
