Poured from the bottle into a wine like tasting glass. From the DC bottle share, much thanks! Vintage 2011.

A real nice looking brew. A very quick fast fading head unfortunately, it did appear to be pink. Body color is real unique, a sort of pink and real nice peach amber body which is also opaque.

Nose brings a light solid acid quality. Raspberry like fruit, peaches, cherries with a little bit of strawberry sensing smelling sweetness. Fruit angle really is complex and varied it seems quite impressive, big fruit basket quality to this.

Palate on first sip is very spritzy. Comfortable tartness in the mid palate, with lots of fruit and a super quick finish. Fruit angle matches the nose but more in the front of the palate. Mimosa and champagne like qualities with a good quenching quality, nit juicy.

Overall a real enjoyable Cascade brew, very enjoyable.

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.
