4.05/5 rDev -9.6%
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.

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.

thanks to egrace84 for sharing this tonite! Thanks elliot!
reviewed from notes taken on 7/4/12.
vintage 2011 poured into duvel tulip.
Appearance: brownish red bodied beer with small whitish cap. Spotty lace.
Smell: Big granny smith apples and tart cherries with mild vinegar. Oaky and earthy.
Taste: White grapes, green apples, tart cherries. The beer is on the high end of moderately tart with a hint of funk. Nice oaky barrel notes in this brew. Maybe even some mild vanilla sweetness from the oak and cherries flavors blending together in this beer. Big tart cherry finish. Nice complex brew!
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Carbonation is spot on and drinks super easy for almost 10%! Super Tart!
Overall: Tried four Cascades(Sang Nior, Sang Royal, The Vine & Kriek) at our tasting last night and this was the clear winner by a landslide! Its up there with one of the best sours that I have drank!

. Pours a brownish-reddish color with a small white head. Aroma is of tart funk, lots of tart and sweet cherries, oak barrel and light vinegar. Taste is complex, sweet cherries, tart cherries, light lactic acid, funk, sourness, some oaky wood, and not much of a sign of the alcohol. Very complex sour, very well done.
