2012 bottle tasting. Not what I was hoping for. Has aroma and flavors of those round candy buttons you have to bite off the shiny paper when you were a kid and didnt even know how bad of a candy it is. Theres obviously some white wine stuff going on here but its ruined.

baraciisch (2957) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Clear dark golden in color... Aroma of Belgian biscuit malts, candi sugar, white wine grapes, oak, citrus... Flavor is fruity and citrusy up front, gives way to vinous undertones, light white wine on palate... Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Vine 13, on draft at the barrel house in Aug 2014 with Erica and Matt. Light gold pour with very washy lacing on the glass. There is a wheaty aroma and its there on the palate as well. Yeasty sourness to it, not tart or acidic really. I described it as a solid "hefe-like" (?) sour.

ajnepple (5448) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Draft pour at Tap And Handle. Clear bronze appearance with a small white head. Aroma of acidity, fruity esters, light candy sugar, caramel malt, toffee, light oak, vanilla and banana bread. Similar flavor, mildly sour with a light herbal bitterness. Medium to full body with soft carbonation, a smooth creamy feel and a light puckering finish. Complex and fun to drink.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a quickly vanishing head. Nose is a weird combination of malt and... Red Bull (I kid you not). Some peach as well. Medium body, quite sweet and a bit sour, and some tannins - interesting. Unagreeable and unnatural red bull flavours coming back. Mh.

Un de mes coups de coeur chez Cascade. Merci Alexandre Mathieu pour la dgustation! Je suis immdiatement conquis par ce nez de raisins bleus, frais et vrai. Pour avoir pu comparer plusieurs produits fruits de cette Maison cte cte, je retrouve dans cette bire lquilibre parfait entre le fruit et lacidit que Cascade propose dans lensemble de ses produits. L je suis conquis! En bouche, lacidit est moyenne et tire ses sources dans un citron jeune. Leffervescence est moyenne. La bire est juste assez ronde pour une bire fruite forte en alcool sans quelle ne soit rellement sucre pour autant. Trs beau produit!

Sour grapes and Chardonnay balance. Lacto tartness and a perception of a tart Belgian candy. Medium carbonation with a dry blanc character.
