Bottle (2011 vintage) to ommegang wine flute
A: very dark ruby red almost brown it is very cloudy and near completely opaque. It had little to no head and a very thin white lacing around the top
S: unfortunately there is a smell of alcohol is fairly strong that being said you can definitely smell the earthy wood from the oak barrels. There is however some fruity smells in there but they are definitely I the background.
T:tart upfront but not in a powerful way it fades fast and goes more into a fruit juicy. there is some sour tart sweetness in the finish, but it is mild compared to others I have had. It is not necessarily bad, just not great.
M:the tartness really does not have any real effect on the feel. It is more juicy like and goes down extremely easily and smooth. There is next to no carbonation so I have to knock off points for that.
O: honestly I was kinda disappointed I don't know if I just expected too much but this is a fairly mild juicy kriek, maybe with some years on it could develop more but overall impression this is good but not great it's worth a try for sure.

A - Beaten egg-white foam perches on the dusty red decoction.
S - Cherry pie.
T - Musty cherries with wood character and decent funk. Chocolate on the finish
M - Unobtrusive. Tied the beer together nicely.
O - Pretty much the only Cascade sour I was tempted to by a bottle of when I visited their brewpub. Came together really nicely. I find this to be slightly underrated.
Serving type: on-tap
