Pours hazy copper with an orangy hue and a thin, whitish head. A thin bead rings the glass with a few streaks of lacing for the duration of the glass.
Aromatics lead off with soured fruit and bright acid. Tannic, tart apricot pits with appleskins and a hint of raspberry. A bit tropical with hints of grapeskins and peaches.
Medium bodied with a sharp, crisp mouthfeel. Puckering and a bit perky in the jowels.
Sour, tart orange fruits with aspirin-dusted peach and apricot pits start the palate. Vineous and quite sour with loads of under-ripe fruit and lemon-pulp following through.
Finishes with a lingering soured fruit assault, jowel-watering and puckering in nature, with a pithy intensity.
One of Cascade's more intense beers. Very nice but some funky brett would really blow this one out of the water.

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.
