750ml bottle into a FW tulip. 2012 project

Pours a dark golden color with not much of a head. didnt "pop" when i opened it either. Smell is very much like white grapes, much like welches white grape juice! Taste is very similar as well. It has only a tiny bit of tartness to it, definitely the least sour tasting cascade ive had. The white grape flavor is very prominent and pronounced and it lasts through the finish and lingers. Its definitely what it promises. No tartness almost at all is quite a shock..not sure as intended? body is medium and carbonation is quite low. I will have to try another bottle to see if the tartness is just off in this one. Overall though the flavor is on point... maybe better fresh

Serving type: bottle
