Sampled at the brewery with Ron and Curtis, thanks again for the awesome hospitality guys, reviewed from notes, color is a dark ruby red color, one inch bubbly white head, decent retention, some light lacing, aroma consists of cherries, port, vinegar, various malts, lacto, caramel, wet oak, black currants, chardonnay, and sour apples, flavor starts off with cherry and wine-like flavors, more of the same in the middle, finish has a creamy fruit taste but finishes dry with wood, tart and fruity mouthfeel, medium bodied, moderately carbonate, could have drank the whole bottle as the alcohol was masked and it had a light feel, quenching stuff, glad we got to sample this as I was seriously eyeing it the day before at Bailey's, would like to drink again, recommended (770 characters)

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. It was part of a great tasting that included seven bottled Cascade sours.

The beer pours a murky brown color with a tan head. The aroma is dark fruit with some tart cherries. The flavor is oak, tartness and cherries. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (304 characters)

Enjoyed on draft at Cascade, poured into a snifter. Pours a deep garnet red with two fingers of head and oily lacing. Loads of tart cherries in the nose and a bit of funk. The taste follows suit, much more tart than I expected from the nose. There's definitely some notes of vinegar present. Like most of their beers, the alcohol is very well hidden. Lot's of stuff happening with this funky little brew. I recommend you try this one for yourself and let us know what you think. Cheers! (486 characters)
