750ml bottle from the brewery.
A: Deep purple bordering on a shade of midnight. Very thin berry colored foam. Slides off glass.
N: Red and green grape. Lactic acid as expected. Currants and plums. Fair amount of acetone and glue. More sharp lactic acid and some leather from the pinot barrels.
T: Tons of sharp lactic acid. Leather and currants. Sweet tarts, lemon,and sour clementine. Plums and vinous grapes. Some tannins.
M: Oily and slick, as is the Cascade norm. Alcohol is light.
O: Don’t know how much this has benefited from extended aging in the barrel. Puckeringly sour and lacking dimension. Meh. It doesn’t taste bad, but it no beauty, either.

2009 project in a snifter type glass. This beer is amazing.
A. Deep, deep ruby/mahogany. Fairly clear where you can actually see trough the darkness. Off white head is a thin layer of tiny soda bubbles, dissipating to next to nothing.
S. Lactic, lots of sour cherries, a little bit of funky barrel, a little red wine
T. Lots of lactic tartness, lots of tart cherries but with a little residual sweetness, just a faint red wine barrel. Not very complex but absolutely delicious. If I had to complain, id ask for a little more funk to balance the sweetness and add to the complexity.
M. Medium-light carbonation, medium bodies until the finish, where a nice slickness coats the mouth, leaving a lingering flavor of tart cherries.
O. First off, the cherry-ness is perfect. Not medicinal, not cloyingly sweet, not overly candylike, but like good ol' Belgian kriek cherries. The beer is fairly one dimensional, but lucky for it (and reeeealy lucky for me), it is an amazing dimension.
