look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured on-tap at Cascade in a 2oz taster. Reviewed from notes.

A- Tiny white head, fades to a ringed one. Red-brown color with nice clarity.

S- Bourbon notes with heavy cherry influence. Sour, but not strong and acrid. Nice smelling beer.

T- Very sour and some bourbon, barrel-aged notes. Strong beer. Tasty.

M- Fizzy carbonation, dry finish.

O- Lovely beer. But not as amazing as the score would make it seem. Maybe I just need more.

Pours a reddish cola color with a reasonable brownish head. Not gonna lie, this looks like Dr. Pepper.

Smells fruity and tart--red wine, sour apples, berries, some oud bruin type ketchupy sweetness, whiskey on the finish. Predictably complex and enticing.

Flavor is lots of sour green apple, cherries and blackberries and other fruit, tart red wine. Whiskey is lighter than in the nose but still present. Extremely complex and pretty darn sour, also a decent sweetness to balance it out. Biggest single flavor I get is green apple. A beer with this much going on could easily be a big mess, and other Cascade experiments have been a little sloppier than this, but this beer is delicious and the complexity just makes me want more.

Mouthfeel is good, nice carbonation but not over carbonated like Cascade beers sometimes are. Very drinkable, the complexity of the flavor just makes it more drinkable too.

Awesome beer overall, definitely the best beer that Cascade has bottled so far. I'd drink this all the damn time if I could.

9.3/10
