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

A: Almost clear dark reddish brown. Very translucent. Forms a thin, whitish head. Leaves some very light lacing.

S: The aroma is rather odd. Oak and apple with some musty basement and dust.

T: The taste is nothing like the aroma. Slightly sour, tart cherries. Apple juice. Some very mild oak and a touch of vinegar. However, there is a mild sweetness that brings balance to the tartness.

M: Medium bodied, lower carbonation. Tart, but balanced.

O: Thankfully the aroma is nothing like the flavor, because I enjoyed the flavor a lot more than the aroma. Ended up being a very enjoyable brew.

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

Appearance is cloudy reddish with minimal head, plenty of lacing. The nose is full of red apples, cherries, oak, vinegar, and pithy character. Taste is very tart up front with plenty of acidic character with oaky notes. The finish is plenty sour with an adition of some earthy character. Mouthfeel is heavy with moderate carbonation. Overall, nice unique brew with plenty of tartness and fruity character.

Cascade Sang Noir
2011 Project

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a very nice dark copper color with some amber notes. There is a 0.5 inch light ecru head that forms that is dense to medium dense that recedes quickly down to a thin film. The brew is nice. (4.5)

Aroma starts off with some nice tart notes. Slight vinegar notes with more of a tart fruitiness. There are some awesome cherry notes in the nose mixed in with the vinegar. Slightly sweet but also tart. Definitely some nice funk notes and some notes of oak. The Bourbon notes are slightly less noticeable than I would like. But the brew is still top notch in the nose department. (4.5)

Taste starts off with a sharp sharp tartness. It is mostly fruity but there is some slight vinegary notes to it. There are some nice woody notes and there is also some slight Bourbon notes. The bourbon notes offer some slight caramel notes and some vanilla on the background of the brew. The tartness definitely dominates the palette though with some nice cherry tartness and some slight sweetness. Nice wine notes as well with some slight acidity. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Very flavorful brew. (5.0)(4.5)

Overall this brew is a very good wild ale. The Cascade crew knows how to do them. There are some nice slight bourbon notes mixed in with intense tart notes. Great sour fruit with some slight vinegar and some nice cherry notes. There is a nice woody and tart finish with some nice wine acidity and tannin.(5.0)
