4.7/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a hazy amber/brown with a nice cap of foam.

S- Fresh, raw, white grapes. Slight hints of tartness and mild citrusy tones.

T- Outstanding! More tart than the nose lets on, but exceptionally well-balanced. the flavor profile is actually somewhat reminiscent of a saison with mild lemony/pepper tones in the backgground, but the foreground is a wonderful melding of fresh and sour grape flavors.

M- Fine carbonation and light-bodied.

D- This is one of the best lambics I've ever had. Well-balanced and smooth.

4.1/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750 mL pours a hazed gold color with a bright white head that snap-crackle-pops its way down to a small collar.

Nose is very much white wine - like a pinot gris. Maybe some grape kool-aid powder too. Crazy good.

Tastes like wine flavored SweeTarts...very nice. Not overly sour, but walks the line between dry tartness and sweet grains. Bubbly carbonation almost gives it a champagne feel. It is very good. Not my favorite Cascade, but another winner for sure.
