look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.

Pours a cloudy reddish dark brown with a layer of off white head that fades to a ring around the pour. Smell is a bit funky with some vinegar and tart wine. The taste is rather sour, I'm getting vinegar and berries. There is some dark funk in the finis. The wine notes are layered nicely. Quite complex.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2009 Project, which I guess means 2011. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep red. Small off-white head with wisps.

Smell - Very acidic. Slightly acetic. Cherry. Lots of red wine.

Taste - Cherry sourness. Remarkably clean sour flavor. Tons of red wine. Acetic acid seems to be gone here. Nice red wine flavor, although the variety is indiscernible to my crap palate. Very tart.

Mouthfeel - It's a sipper of a sour. Very tart and medium heavy.

Overall - Really nice combination of flavors. Better than the sum of its parts for sure. Cascade always seems to have the ability to make a beer that you know is good, but you can't pick out exactly why it's so good.
