Thanks to caesar! 750 ml. bottle sampled as “Cascade Sang Rouge” @ ZZT 2017. Dark brownish red. Nose is vinegar massive acidic puckering oak USA style, vinegar & glue sour but in a odd pleasant way, acidic cherry pits,… Taste is balsamic vinegar, pucerkig, glue, thick enough for it too work balsamic vinegar malt, puckering cherry pits, oak,… Thick glue, vinegar acidic body. I shouldn’t like it but it strangely tasty & drinkable. Very nice puckering rich sour. Very tasty, another wonderful Cascade. Benzai (16696) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2017

As Sang Rouge. Thanks Matt! Perfect balance between a full maltiness, red grape notes and acidity, both in taste and the aroma, soft and clean. All in all, while the sample wasn't the larges, this is pretty much without even minor flaws and an obvious classic. Gerbeer (4022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2017
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark red/brown with little head. Aromas of dark red cherries, oak, and a little balsamic vinegar. Flavors of dark cherries, dry red berries, more oak, and light fruity vinegar. Very nicely put together. Great stuff - except for the pricing... tapefuzz (826) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2017

Robe rubis dense, presque brune, belle mousse abondante. Nez puissant sur la cerise, la griotte, le bois noble, pointe balsamique, note vanillée, une superbe complexité. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, le bois est présent, la bulle est délicate, la matière impressionnante, avec une longue finale acidulée et concentrée. Un superbe bière qui pourra évoluer de nombreuses années. Un délice Svartvit (967) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2017
