3.55/5 rDev -17.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
750ml corked and caged brown bottle poured into a tulip.
A: Pours an orangish light copper with good clarity. Decent head on the pour with a thin skim of retention. Some lacing.
S: Tart and sour notes of tangerines and apricots. Some if the spices pole through as well as some of the alcohol and very light bourbon. Not much funk.
T/M: More tart and sour fruits. Spices are still there. Not very dry and crisp with a bit fuller mouthfeel and only mild to medium carbonation. There's also something slightly off... Maybe burnt plastic? It's almost undetectable.
D: Not a bad American wild but not cascade's best, either. I wouldn't mind trying this vintage again in a couple years but I don't think I want to trade what it takes to land one of these.
