This one was a part of cmrillo’s 40 Beers* @ 40 Birthday Bash! Shared by cmrillo at his own party! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a reddish brown with a half finger khaki colored head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart, subtle funk, dark fruit, and wood. The flavor was of sweet malt, sour, tart, funk, and wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. This one was tasted in series with the other Cascade brews and it was another continuation of solid brews. I really like how this one took all the aspects people have grown to expect from the style and make it shine. I really wish there would have been a fruit aspect going on. It would have helped out with the tart and sour dominance of this one. Definitely worth seeking out if you have not had it.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter. Thank you Scott for sharing!

(A)- Pours a pale blush red color. Some off white bubbles and foam.

(S)- A dry oaky funky vinous vinegar-like funk with fruits.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. A funky fruit and almost vinegar-like oaky bite at the end.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Tart, but mostly possesses a dry oaky funk.

(D)- A solid wild with some nice complexities I enjoyed very much. I continue to look forward to trying more of Cascades' sours.
