4.13/5 rDev -2.4%
2011 vintage. 750ml bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a slight hazy golden with a finger of bubbly white head that slowly faded into a fuzzy film and collar leaving wispy lace down the glass.
S: Lightly tart, lightly dry notes of white grapes and woody dry oak, vinous white wine, slight golden fruit, and slight peach.
T: Follows the nose with flavors of white grape, vinous oak barrel, and golden fruits in the finish. More fruit develops as it warms, and I get a hint of mint and bubblegum yeast.
M: Clean but not as dry or crisp as I was expecting. Medium-fuller body, fizzy active bubbly carbonation. The foamy carb adds some lightness to the mouthfeel.
O: Really solid wine barrel sour, smooth but not as dry as I like nor as crisp. Really enjoyable flavor though.

draft at the barrel house
Served in a stubby chalice, the beer is a deep, golden color with a frothy white head. The nose is loaded with oaky white whine and white grape notes. Sweet malt. Following are earth, pear, and belgian yeast. The flavors follow suit, with an additional light tart. Light-medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Not my favorite Cascade, but unique and enjoyable.

A - pours a hazy apricot type color. Just a bit hazy/cloudy. Super tall, loose head. Dissipates at a medium pace (points if you get the reference).
S - lots of tart/sourness, apples, cherries, white wine, some funk that grows more pronounced as it warms, musty smells come out as well.
T - nicely sour. Smooth punch of sour to start, just a touch of the vinegar notes, lots of sour fruit, apples, some grape, the white wine notes are there big time in the finishing stages. Nice element of funkiness comes in at the end.
M - very good. Avoids getting syrupy and stays crispy smooth throughout.
O - another excellent sour from cascade.
