750ml bottle poured into HF sherry glass. 2009 Project. Thanks Lymph for sending us this!

A- Pours a dark purplish brown, not much of a head with a thin ring that forms around the edge of the glass. Decent consistent carbonation.

S- Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, cherries, a bit of oak, faint hint of port, balanced malts, some funk. Fairly aromatic.

T- Vinous Cabernet grapes, some light funk sourness, well balanced port and Pinot noir characteristics. Finishes lightly tart with a nice grape cherry lasting aftertaste.

M- Medium bodied, decent carbonation, hides abv very well, easy drinking.

O- This is a fantastic sour from Cascade that has a great balance between malts and sourness. The barrel complements the beer nicely. A little bit overrated but easily one of the better sours in the US.

2009 project. Teku glass.

A: Pours a deep burgundy with hints of brown, an inch of burnt cream colored head which recedes moderately quickly to a sturdy ring. Excellent clarity, very good retention, and a few streaks of lacing.

S: A gorgeous marriage of lactic sourness up front, moderate funk, and a hint of red wine and red fruit and barrel spice.

T: Mouth puckeringly sour, at a medium-high level which stretches out through the finish. Notes of juicy fruit, funk, bright red wine, with a little oak and vanilla on the finish which really brings the flavors together. Clean flavors overall.

M: Fizzy, Pop Rock-like carbonation with medium-light body. Alcohol is extremely well hidden.

O: Excellent. Very drinkable, and I think on par with Sang Noir and other of the better Cascade BA sours.
