Draught @Borefts 2016 - Dag 1, thanks Art. - Ill be honest here: for all their 8%+ whopping strength, Cascades brews are impressively dry, bone dry even. However, it does not feel like an organic, slow-matured sourness to my palate and enamel and their paint-stripper use of lactic acid tends to give me both heartburn and a tooth ache: less than hearty or wholesome really. Also, Cascades souring culture, oaky vinegar and balsamics to a good deal, strips through fruit, leaving behind a generic sourness and almost no depth of wild flavours that just does not speak to me. At this rate of no-delay acetic attack, I had a hard time distinguishing kriek from figs, cranberry from strawberry. And i do like Cantillon Kriek - their is a likeness to Hanssens Kriek, in the sharpness and acetic oak spice. - Willing to reevaluate bottled, but at a 40+/bottle pricepoint on EU import I doubt that will happen soon. Guess my Belgian palate is too Old Europe and geared toward fresh fruit, deep funk and gastronomic balance to join in the eulogies here, Art...Still educational to have had the opportunity to try this, so merci! - Cf. : De Leite Cuve Soeurise.

On [email protected]: Pours clear deep amber color with tiny tan purple head. Aroma is the best part, funky, with sour cherries, hint of grape, oak, vanilla,...flavor is overall onedimensional but still you can detect the same notes as by aroma. Finish is dry, astringent, tart. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium.
