4.1/5 rDev -6.8%
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.

Pretty red, not candy red color, but an earthy red, with some light brown mixed into it. Aroma was amazing, sour cherry, red ale, massive sourness in the nose that doesn't cover up the sour cherry aspect. Alcohol not to be noticed in the aroma, nor are there any vinegar notes, just splendid.
More and more waves of sour cherry and lactic tart notes. Amazing this is an abv of over 9.3%, at no point does it taste or smell anything like it would be around that level, big props. Didn't taste sweet, like I feared when I read this was partially aged in port barrels, the red wine barrels too aren't over the top, very nuanced red wine with red ale, but this is all about the cherry and sourness.
Hey these aren't cheap, but I'd order them over and over, as I plan to keep doing. Thought the carbonation was just right. Cascade is sooo underrated.

A - Dark brown with reddish tint and light golden accents. Off white head
S - Cherry, lots of cab sav barrels, tartness, lactic acid, and lemon peel. Really good and lots of tartness as this picks up.
T - Tartness up front, lots of cab barrel, cherries, lots of lemon peel and slight lactic acid throughout. Great flavor of the dark wine and fruit contrasted with a sharp tartness.
M - Highly carbonated with a dry finish.
O - Really good beer with lots of cherry, cab sav, and tart lactic acid bite. I really enjoyed this one and would be curious to see how it compares to a fresher bottler

Huge thanks go out to unrivaled trader, JohnGalt1 for this bottle. Above and beyond tobes, thanks.
Pours a deep mury brown/red color with a nice off white head that lingers unusually well for the style and leaves ok lacing, good for the style.
Nose is full of lacto bite. Clear cherry and oak in the nose, some almost green appley presence as well, minimal vinegar.
Hmmm. This beer is alot like consecration...only better. Big tartness is melded with oak and cherry flavors, balanced extraordinarily well. There is some vinegar presence, but minimal compared to something flemish in nature, this is clearly a sour wild ale. The finish is bone dry and puckeringly tart. Aftertaste lingers with some flemish notes, cherry, and lacto sourness.
Mouthfeel is perfect for the style, high in carbonation and minimally viscous. Very dry and crisp on the finish.
Drinkability is really rather remarkable for the abv. Barely makes its presence known at all. The major lactic bite is there, keep in mind, but style wise, this is nearly as drinkable as they get.
Overall, yet another very impressive cascade wild ale. Really a wild ale with some slight flemish overtones. These guys are quickly becoming the under the radar authority on sour beers in the northwest, and rival the other west coast big boys with some of their offerings. It's too bad their stuff is so limited, because it really is a treat. Great beer.
