Wood aged Pale Quadruppel. Imagine a blend of Scaldis and Cantillon Pure Kriek. Forget it, there is nothing like it (yet). Vlad is shocking to your sour beer senses and taste buds, which do not understand that such a balanced delicate sour beer can be so drinkable and appeal to so many people while being extreme. But dont forget, it will still open a can of 10.6% whoop-ass on your ass after all the pomp & circumstance of what an amazing beer it is subsides.

wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2012
2009 Vintage
Tasted on 9/30/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle sent to me by Chris, big thanks. Pours hazy dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sour and dusty with some sweet caramel malt, funky yeast, and some oak treatment that has both vanilla and vinous notes. The flavor is a bit more barrel focused with the vanilla and vinous notes taking over, a nice sourness, and sweet caramel malt, very interesting. The body is full with a bit of an oily texture, some tannin, average carbonation, and a long sour and vinous wine barrel finish.

Cybercat (5670) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Pours dark honey with minimal beige head. Aroma presents sharply tart pomme pine and stone fruit notes, while fresh malt and a pinch of hops provide support. Flavor delivers sweet and tart fruit, fresh malt, a hint of honey and a touch of hops. Firm mouthfeel has good fizz. Get imp-aled.

Oakes (17172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Dark amber. No head. Aroma mixes bourbon with tart, wood...a complex and interesting mess. The sweet bourbon in the finish, with the tartness, the wood, and the raisiny, date notes...pretty nice.

Pours nice straw yellow. Nice autumny sour aroma, vanilla and some oak.This beer is surprising me with its balance, fruity, some pear. Sourness nicely balanced - and again, no way this beer has abv in double digits!

Flat, almost no carbonation, very big sourness, with oak, cherries, vanilla, a bit of bourbon in the nose. Low carbonation, very sour, tons of bourbon, oak, great depth and balance. Sourness fruit oak and light bourbon finish. Awesome. Fairly warming

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Clean light amber color. Some wine and glue aroma. Strong body, with residual sugars; woody, with good malt body, some vinegar, candies, light berry juice, and final astringency.
Good, but I find it a bit confused.

Batavi (386) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2017
Geproefd tijdens Borefts 2016. Licht troebel goudoranje kleur, met een crmekleurige schuimkraag, die mooi stabiel blijft. Fruitige wijnachtige aromas van; witte druiven, abrikozen, eikenhout, citrusvruchten als sinaasappel, citroen, met vanille en een vleugje bourbon. De smaak is zurig, maar wel heel gebalanceerd en zacht, met zoete fruitige tonen. Vineus karakter, van witte wijn, eikenhout, zoet citrusfruit, abrikoos, perzik, met een verwarmende finish van vanille bourbon. Zachte carbonatie, verborgen alcohol. Ook dit tweede bier van Cascade wat ik proef is weer uitstekend van kwaliteit, hoe mooi kan een Sour zijn.
