Shared a bottle with a friend of mine by a campfire on a cold summer night.
A: An interesting mixture of dark ruby red and brown. Decent head with considerable lacing.
S: Woah. Lots of sour lactic aromas going on here with a nice malty, fruity background. Just by the smell you can tell this is going to be a sipper.
T: At first you're hit with a puckering sourness that tickles the back of your tongue. The first two or three sips all I really got was lactic sour. After my palette got accustomed to the sourness, I was welcomed by gushing sour cherry flavors with an interesting malty background. Very nice.
O: A little pricey, but well worth it. I'm just getting into sours, and this one gave a nice interesting twist on how I perceive them. I've basically only had fruit lambics from Cantillon before this, and it was nice to see an almost brown ale aspect built into the sourness. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on it. I look forward to trying other stuff from Cascade.

on tap at the brewery, Portland
Leathery brown-ruby with pink film that trails.
Big sour woody nose with balsamic and pomegranate hits.
Deep red fruit - currant, sour raspberry - with hints of chocolate, wood, vanilla, bourbon, and cherry stone.
Tart finish and lean linger.
Lt-medium, dry, a bit of cream, no trace of heat.
Lots of complexity. Wood and cherry are down in the mix, making it that much more harmonious. Well-integrated sour - if not quite magical.

2012 project. First beer for me from Cascade based on high recommendations from fellow BAs. Very pleasant aroma and for the first half of the bottle could not stop from enjoying it before every taste. Loved the sweetness and sour cherries. Very easy to drink and the 9.8% snuck up on me. I'm so glad I had ordered more than one. Can't wait to try this brew again after some aging on my other bottles. Enjoyed it so much I burnt my dinner.
