Thanks to GrassrootsVT for the generous share.
Cork pulls tight but releases with a fresh pop. Nice frost that pours into a straw-to-tangerine colored beer with a white head. Head settles from two fingers into a sticky, spotty cap that lasts for the rest of the glass.
Aroma of wonderful brett, tart apples, and funky grass. Spicy aromatic fermented fruit flavors.
Flavor matches aroma exceptionally well. Nice tart, funky flavor with mild fermented fruit, wild...farmhouse-ness. Underlying cider qualities come through as it warms. Delicious, balanced and drinkable.
Soft, sparkling and sweet-tart. Super drinkable.

2011 project into a snifter
Pours a clear golden orange with a finger of foam that receded pretty quickly into a right around the glass. Very mild carbonation, lacing isn't too bad. Not much not to like
Smell's of tart cherry and apricot, vinegar, oak, leather, white wine, plums, Belgian spice, and funk. Comes together pretty well
Taste is very belgian. All the fruit and spice notes you'd expect from a a quad and a triple coupled with tart fruits, cherry, tangerine, and apricot being the strongest. Notes of vinegar and leather help the sour notes. Oak, wine, notes of bourbon, and some alcohol on the finish
Feel is medium sourness, medium body with a sticky finish. Alcohol hidden well, easy to drink
Overall not a bad beer, probably my least favorite from Cascade thus far. That said, still blows most competitors out of the water
