750ml bottle served into a snifter. Thanks for this one Tom!

A: Murky orange/brownish color. Thin white head that receded very quickly.
S: Citrus sourness. Burst of raspberries. Some oakiness, a touch of apricot and grapes. Tons of lactic acid.
T: Faint apricot and mango. Lots of raspberries and woody flavors. Slight vinous notes. Very sour!
M: Medium body with good carbonation. Very drinkable despite the sourness.
O: Excellent sour by Cascade. I've loved everything I've had by them so far. Highly recommended.

Drank before a Wolfpack football tailgate with James. This was one of the more unique colored beers. Has a cloudy orange/yellow/amber colored appearance and a very thin head of off white on it. It quickly vanishes away. The aroma comes close to being described as a fruit explosion. Plenty of that usual lactic sourness, always nicely done. Apricot is the heaviest, other fruit aromas take a back seat, but this one is plenty distinguishable from just the apricot sour they make. Oak is not absent in the aroma either.

Taste, this one does not disappoint, plenty of fruit character. Plenty of tart fruit notes (apricot) and sourness. Wheat? Some minor amount of cherry flavor with a stronger raspebrry presence in the mouthfeel. Throw in more and more citrus sourness and acidity. This is not a mild sour by any means. Carbonation is powerful. Hides the alcohol wonderfully.
