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
