Pours a murky brown/amber with a nice bubbly brown/amber head that dissipates quickly, although the bubbles are continually making their way to the top. The smell is of sour cherries, with some belgian yeastiness and lots of tart funk. could be a little stronger.
The flavor isn't as "explosive" as I was expecting it to be. What I mean is that its a little undercarbonated for the style. The cherries flavors are of sweet, ripe red cherries, and really lack the tartness I was expecting/wanting. The sourness that is apparent gives off a sweet tart flavor that seems a little artificial. Lots of bready yeastiness in the finish/aftertaste. The oakiness gives off a more robust flavor that comes out only after a few sips have already been taken. A good beer for sure, not the best though.
The body should either be thinner, or the beer should be more carbonated. This may be a tough one to get through the whole 750ml, but I think I'll make it.

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
