4.1/5 rDev -2.8%
A-Almost black in the glass, but a clear ruby when pouring, one finger pink head that dissipates instantly.
S-Cherries, not much oak, and slight funk.
T-Mainly cherries, they are not overly sweet though. Mild funk and tart notes. Very mild oak.
M-Lighter nice carbonation.
O-Avoided the cherry flavor being too sweet which was a huge plus for me.

4.01/5 rDev -5%
750ml corked/caged bottle split between two large snifters. Bottle says it's the 2012 Project (7.2% abv), so I assume it's the 2012 batch. No bottle codes or dates that I can see beyond that. The other glass got more sediment, so I'm reviewing the glass with less sediment -- also, there's a crapload of sediment left in the bottle. Served at fridge temp, which ought to be close to 41 F.
Pours cloudy brownish-red with a smallish light brown head that fades slowly. Lots of very fine, very slow carbonation. Smell is quite tart, rich, cherries. Maybe slightly musty.
Taste is extremely tart, with a very "unripe cherry" sense to it. Very much on the tart side of sweet tart. Some vague bitterness.
Mouthfeel is extremely dry. Overall, this is quite good.

4.04/5 rDev -4.3%
Appearance: Rich dark reddish purple with a brownish tint in color. Cloudy. Completely opaque. A 1-2 finger creamy white head when poured that dies down quickly leaving some remnants of foam on the surface of the beer and sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Fruity with a smooth sour aroma; kind of brandy-like.
Taste: Starts with a delicious fruity flavor (cherry and berries) followed by tart, slightly sour acidic finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, lots of medium carbonation that has a slight fizzy feeling on your tongue.
Overall: Another outstanding Cascade Brewing beer, though not as good as the Apricot or Blueberry in my opinion. High price though at over $30.
