09 bottle

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

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.
