2011 Project, 750ml bottle poured into Russian River Tulip
A: Cloudy-murky Orange / amber color body with two finger head that quickly disappears. Good amount of lacing. Warning* watch out when you open this bottle. It gushes a little bit. I lost about maybe an oz of beer
S: Smell-wise, it just smells like any other Cascade Sours. Citrous, yeast, funk, some bready malt. All normal (in a good way here).
T: WOW. Awesome. It's subtle but the "Noyaux" - whatever this is (I still can't quite figure out what it is after reading the description of what it is) really comes through nicely. It sort of rounds out the acidic sourness that is common in Cascade sours. This beer is definitely sour, but I would say it's not as acidic and sour as "the Vine". I get apricot, peach, citrus, sour grapes. After taste is bready malt. Very tart.
M: Medium to light body with lots of carbonation. Dry.
O: I think this is my 2nd favorite beer from Cascade (first one being Nightfall). Quite pricey though at $25 a bottle. Seek this one out!

1804th review on BA
Bottle to Cascade snifter
750 ml c/c
App- Out of the bottle I really wasn't sure what color this would be. I figured more pinkish orange for some reason. Was a little surprised by the solid orange with some yellow highlights. A very nice long lasting 1-1/2 finger head was there. For a sour BA beer a ton of cling. Quite beautiful.
Smell- When I brought this one up for a smell, I was a little let down. A bit one dimensions. Standard Cascade-sequel nose with some oak and yeast and sour. Small fruit aromas.
Taste- I was surprised at this one when first opening and letting sit. A first sip was more oak and vinegar and took some time for the fruits to come out. As it warmed a citrus flavor and tartness came in. More oak barrel shown through and lingered for a bit.
Mouth- Between the appearance and the feel of this beer it was only off on the flavor a little bit. The fluffy and creamy aspects of this made it a superb beer on the tongue. A big medium body with a lower carbonation made this drink really well.
Drink- It was a good beer. A tad $$$ for what it was. I am glad I got my hands on a bottle since I missed this one when I was at cascade last year.
