COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Manhattan NW, a NW style sour ale that was, until recently, a secret. It’s a blend of Blond Quad aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels on 150 pounds of sour pie cherries for five months before additionally aging on apricot noyaux for three months. Aromas of cherries, Bourbon, sweet candy and hints of spice are noticed up front. Tart cherry skins and Maraschino cherries on the palate lead to a dance of rich cherry notes that are followed by slight Bourbon sweetness. Much like the process to make fission, the steps involved here are greater than the sum of their parts. What isn’t a secret? At 11.32% ABV, you’re going to need a designated driver

chinchill (4939) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2016
2014 edition on tap in June 2016 at the brewpub in Portland. Lovely red-orange body that sparkles with highlights and is covered by a fine white head. High level of tartness that goes well with the boozy (whisky) and fruity Some significant cherries in the aroma elevate the aroma well above an average sour.

Mep3222 (1544) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Lactic sour, cherry, oaky Woody, dry tannic aroma. Very clean, not funky. Taste has all the same with some slight bourbon flavors in the finish, but they are subdued. All the flavors work so well together and are so balanced. Sour maybe 6 or 7 of 10, not overly sour (but still pretty sour), perfectly balanced. Get a little more Woody bourbon vanilla flavors as I drink more, but still slight bourbon. Dry fermented cherry, not sweet. So good. One of the top cascade sours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Draft at Republic - so nice to have Cascade in Minnesota finally! Beautiful dark pink pour with slight white lacing. Jammy cherry nose. Big tart cherry bomb, but with much more depth than some of Cascade’s sours: cherry skin, light bourbon sweetness in the finish. Legit.

3.6
ippopotamo36 (2356) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 10, 2016
On tap at Cascade pub in Portland-USA. Reddish Amber pour clear, little lacing. Nose: cherry sour notes, funk. Mouth: sour strawberry blast, tart lime peppery finish. Still sweet in some ways. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
