4.7/5 rDev +6.8%
A: poured a dark burnt orange in color with slight reddish highlights and a thin bubbly head that left little wisps of lacing sticking to the glass.
S: plenty of raspberry fruit were noticeable upfront in the aroma with nice funky character, a bit of acidic notes in a good way, signs of apricot, mild vinous barrel coming through and hints of citrus.
T: the apricot fruit character was more apparent on the palate alongside great raspberry fruit flavor, oaky wood accents, good vinous barrel notes, a touch of vanilla, subtle apple and acidic tart qualities. Mmmmm
M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a fruity, vinous, woody, acidic, mild sweet, slightly funky and tart finish.
O: exceptional beer all the way around and definitely glad I have more to crack open at my dispose. Geeahh!!

Pours dark orange with some red hue. A small bubbly white heads that recedes quickly with no lacing.
Raspberry puree aroma with some strong lactic notes and some oak.
Again tons of jammy raspberry flavor. Don't get a ton of apricot although there is something fruity in addition to the raspberry I'm sensing. Sour lactic acid and drying oak on the end.
Medium body and carbonation.
In the vein of most other Cascades. Lactic sourness with fruit. Probably about middle of the road in terms of the Cascade fruit sours I've had. Some complexity is there, but raspberry overshadows some other flavor nuances. Still tasty.

Opened at a tasting 1/26/2012.
Pours a light apricot color with only a hint of pink, very nice but doesn't look like a raspberry sour.
Smells bright and very acidic, apricots and other light fruit, hints of raspberries, butter, and nuts.
Taste is similar, very bright and very sour, some apricots, more raspberry than in the nose, some of the same butter and nut flavors I got from the nose, hints of malty spice in the finish. Fruit is definitely present but doesn't dominate. Delicious sour.
Good carbonation, pretty drinkable despite the high acidity.
Excellent sour, my second favorite Cascade after Sang Noir. Maybe the most sour Cascade beer too.

4.26/5 rDev -3.2%
A: Pours a dark tangerine color with a bit of white head while fizzles out quickly to a still surface. No lacing or retention.
S: Raspberry in the forefront, with moderate oaky and spice notes, apricot, lactic acid, and orange. I love the interplay of the two fruits with the oak. Despite the name, I get more raspberry than apricot, but either way it's very nice.
T: Moderate sourness up front and throughout the sip, apricot is more forward here, light barrel, finishing with the same lactic sourness.
M: Medium-full body and medium carbonation.
O: Tasty stuff, in the style of Cascade's other sour beers. I like the combination of fruit, and the barrel treatment adds a nice element. Sourness is a bit fatiguing and can limit the drinkability.

Poured from tap into a snifter. Pours a lovely medium gold color with a foamy head.
There is a lot of tart qualities to the aromas of navel oranges, green apples, tart pears and a nice touch of funk as well.
Medium/full bodied with a great feel and good tartness on the backend. The flavors of green apples, tart pears, and some funk balance very well together.
While this isn't their most sour beer, it's a damn good one. Very well balanced with a real good tartness to it as well.
