2012 project poured into a 6oz curved glass. Initially this was going to be a gusher but I plugged and lost nothing.

A: Pours a rust brown. Nice deep red pinot character. Lovely frothy head. As far as sours go this is tits. This is exactly what a sour should look like.

S: Nice deep cherry character. Sweet but subtle tannin character. Little bit of chared barrels from the whiskey but so subtle.

T: What can I say? Deep cherry, tart raspberry, sweet booze from the bourbon but not a bourbon burn. The lactic component comes in during the finish with a lingering wood stickiness that just coats the roof of your mouth. Lovely. Not overly sour just the perfect amount.

M: Perfection. Start to finish. Goes down buttery. The carbonation is a little explosive at first but it really enhances the flavor profile. Just frothy clean finish. Some of Cascades can come off overly acidic and this blend is so enjoyable.

Overall: Cascade.. probably the most consistent sour producing brewery out there. I've had this in the past and prior I got more of a sour bomb with heavier lactic component. This is still amazing, hasn't changed much. This goes in the top 5 Flanders Reds I've ever had. Pairs amazingly with a cave aged gruyere.
