Poured from a 2011 Project 750 ml corked and caged bottle into a Cascade Brewing Barrel House branded short stemmed tulip glass
Pours a hazy gold with amber accents. A big fluffy two and half finger bright white head adorns the glass, fantastic retention and gobs of lacing are left clinging to the sides. Floral and grassy notes, apricot, bready, slightly funky yeast, vinegar, and hints of oak on the nose. Oak, juicy apricot, Juicy Fruit bubblegum notes, yeasty esters, light barnyard funk, that finishes with lactic acid and white wine vinegar sour and tartness. Light medium bodied, moderate effervescent carbonation. Smooth and silky mouthfeel with syrupy accents. One deliciously complex American sour. Definitely one that shouldn't be missed.

on tap at the brewery, Portland
Hazy platinum with no head.
Apricot fruit roll-up on the nose with a touch of white vinegar.
JuicyFruit, bright orchard fruit, a touch of funk, lemon zest and a bit of chalk.
Bracing fresh fruity finish and white spice linger.
Crisp, light, no heat.
Champagne-like. White vinegar and Belgian funk hidden under fruit, but still very acidic, in a good way. Probably the most accessible sour ever.
