This is a good beer. Aggressively sour and wild. Hollow on the midpalate. Feels thin, which makes the beer refreshing but not all that interesting.

Le liquide a une robe rougeâtre passablement embrouillée. Le col mousseux est petit. Quelques traces restent collées à la paroi du verre. Au nez, les cerises sont douces et surettes, plus ou moins intenses, touchées par des parfums de prunes et, de façon générale, par des effluves de petites baies. La présence du bois renchérit les arômes. Au goût, les cerises sont extrêmement surettes (je dirais même légèrement caustiques) baignées dans un vinaigre de fruits et harponnées par des notes citriques et lactiques (enfin, si ça peut faire du sens). En bouche, le liquide est moyennement structuré avec un pétillement assez doux et une texture huileuse. La finale est tonitruante, longue, pleine de fruits surets.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a murky brown color with minimal white foam that dissipates. Aromas are sour cherry, oak, and yeastiness. Taste is tart and crisp, with cherry dominating the palate. The oak also comes into play, but the tart long finish is mostly cherry. Overall, a very satisfying sour ale. Would love to have more

2009 Bottling. 750ml corked + caged bottle into a tulip glass. A - Dark ruby red body. Creamy light khaki head. Nice lacing and retention. S - The weakest part of the beer for me. Sour cherries, vinegar, and sun screen lotion. The smell is a bit light. T - Sour cherries and some oak. Really mouth puckering. Not that complex or interesting. The mouth feel is very similar to other Flanders, smooth and velvety while remaining well carbonated and lively. O - Not a bad stab at the flanders style by an American brewery. I was shocked to find this on the shelves as I didn’t know they had some distribution in Massachusetts. I’m intrigued to try the other Cascade wilds now.

2009 corked bottle, 7.3% ABV. Purple color, cloudy, no head. Dusty cellar-like aroma with marzipan and cherry. Very sour, somewhat lactic flavor with oak, cherry pie, lemon and cherry pits, Complex and very tasty kriek.

Bouteille de 750ml, bouchon de liège, prix exorbitant. 2010. Bière brune-rouge sans mousse ou un simple cercle sur le pourtour. Elle est trouble. Le nez est spécial, un mélange de tarte aux cerises et de pâte à choux. La bouche frappe par son aigreur, elle est longue, l’acidité fait saliver ce qui la rend très rafraichissante. Les cerises sont marqués en fin de bouche. Un produit très intéressant. 8/10

A: pour reddish brown with a large bubbled finger of off white head. Does leave some small spots of lacing. S: very tart aroma at first, then that leads to a slightly sweet cherry, also the dryness of tart cherries. T: initially and while very cold its all sour. But as it warms the sourness seems to subside and dry tart cherries, sweet cherrys and a small amount of sweet malt start to show. Nice long lingering tart cherry sourness M: tart and drying, good carbonation O: continuing my liking of sour ales I like this one alot. The last few sips seem more like a gueuze to me.

Bottle @ bros house. Cloudy, red-brown appearance with a tan head. Potent, sour, acidic, somewhat woody, cherry aroma. Moderately to highly sour, acetic, tart cherry flavor. Tart cherry aftertaste. Nice brew.

November 13, 2010 - Waterloo tasting with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. 750ml bottle courtesy of j&m. Bottom of bottle pour for me. Very murky, some floaties, deep brick red with more red than brick - solid creamy beige head. Smells like a kriek - sour cherry, has a fair bit of dry herbal bitterness to it, also moderately funky/yeasty, tons of cherry - not complex, but what’s not to like? Taste is VERY sour, classic simple kriek - can’t fault it - sour, yeasty, background sweetness pretty much completely overpowered by acidic funk, just what I love. Thick, acidic mouthfeel, decent if low-level carbonation, with a nicely long dry acidic finish and linger .... very solid, if straightforward - I would drink this again, and hope to one day.
