Big thanks goes out to beeruser for sharing this one at a recent Random Sunday Tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, apricot, fruit, sour, and tart. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, apricot, tart, sour, and wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I honestly did not know what to expect going into this one as I had heard of it, but not really paid it any attention. However, what I found was really quite excellent. The apricot notes in this one were really nice and very refreshing. This made it quite drinkable despite the major tart aspect going on. A really nice surprise that showed up at the tasting that evening that I wouldn’t mind trying again or seeing how it develops with a little time in a proper cellar.

A - pours a hazy yellow-light orange with an ephemeral white head. No lace. Light bubbles.

S - nice aroma of raspberry, lacto, mild oak, faint almond and faint floral.

T - is just like the aroma with a robust sourness. Moderate lacto presence, but not cheesy.

M - light-medium body. Low-medium carbonation. Mouth watering sour finish with a long sustain.

O - this is a really nice raspberry sour. The raspberry flavor isn't huge like NG Rasperry Tart, but there is just enough to compliment the puckering sourness. Another great beer from Cascade.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance. Pours a lightly hazy peach-gold with a finger of white head.

Smell. Lactic sourness, peach, almond, sweet fruity Belgian style yeast, berries and light fruits. Yum.

Taste. Sour red berries, a little vinegar, some fruity yeast, a bit of almond and peach. Nice. Sour, but not overwhelmingly so. Really tasty.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, low+ fine and slightly spritzy carbonation.

Overall. One of the better tasting sours from Cascade imo. Really enjoying this one and wish I had bought several more bottles.
