tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown mahogany and mostly opaque with a huge, chunky khaki head that settles slowly. Aroma is sour, funky cherry skins. Tart with a dry, musty funk far in the background. Light vanilla and some dry oak in the finish. Taste is plenty of sour cherries and sour grapes with a big vinous and oak flavors. Very nice tartness, gets the saliva glands sweating big-time. Sweet, dying tartness, cherry and grape, oaky finish. Tasty stuff, seems to have more bottle variation than most other Cascades; some bottles have a mild medicinal tone, others are completely void.

BillKismet (4021) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Cherry-amber body, with ring of head, but otherwise flat. Lovely cherry-Flanders nose, with wonderfully aged layers of wood and malting, and tartness, with just a spice of vinegar. The body also delivers layers of complexity. Aged malts and woodiness, tinged with restrained vinegar and cherry. Prickly aged cherry vinegar at back of palate. Outstanding.
