Drank from a 750 ml/1pt., 9.4 fl. oz corked and caged bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Served in a tulip

Deep, dark mahogany in appearance with a frothy, one-finger, khaki-colored crown. The head quickly faded to a thick, lasting collar. Streaks of lacing clung to the sides of the glass.

The aroma was amazingly complex. Lots of horse blanket mustiness and lactic-like sourness. The sourness was complimented by some sweet brown malts. Red wine notes came through front and center. Super oaky and woody. Fruity with indications of sour cherries.

Like the nose, the flavor profile was outstanding. There was a nice sweet, dark malt presence up front, which helped to balance out this tart and acidic wild ale. Barnyard funk came through strong. Super musty. Red wine and balsamic vinegar notes took over mid-palate. Lots of sour cherry flavor as well. The finish was super oaky, tannic and dry, with slight metallic notes. Refreshingly crisp and appetite whetting.

The mouthfeel was creamy and surprisingly full-bodied. Smooth and supple on the palate.

Cascade's Sang Rouge is intensely flavored yet remarkably well balanced. After trying many of the best American wild ales, I can honestly say that this ranks near the top.

750 ml bottle into a snifter and Duvel glass. Dregs of course to my Flanders Red brew. Got this on my trip to Portland March 2010.

Appearance is a dark red mahogany color with a nice head on top of it, really frothy looking, and it sticks around as well. Really nice lacing.

Aroma is perfect Flanders Red - cherry pie, a light touch of balsamic vinegar, and a light note of oak.

Taste is just as good - it starts out tart from the beginning with strong cherry pie then the oak comes on strong with the vinegar only slightly in there as it should be. Finishes dry and sour.

Mouthfeel is really creamy and retains a certain fullness to it that I like.

Overall a really amazing sour. It was good before but with an extra year on it, it's now even better. Cascade makes some of the best American Sours that I've had coming in only second to Russian River. I want more.

Snagged a couple 750ml bottles at Beaumont Market..

- Rich dark red and molasses brown ale... somewhat clear and fizzed up nicely... but quickly fizzled to a bubbling cider of sorts. If an category gets slightly lower marks.. it is this one.. though it still looks fantastic for the style.

- Where do I start? Perfect fresh sourness and fruity tartness up front... and a wonderful background of black currants, subtle sweet qualities... and oak. I do think the pinot noir shows a little on this one, but more so the oak.

- This stuff is the nectar of the gods. I can't get over Cascades sours... this one is much like their usual Mouton Rouge, and their bottled Sang Noir last year. Huge dark currants in the flavors, oak, sourness... I don't much have the vocabulary for this one. Grapes, black cherries... oak. Perfection as usual from them.

- Light bodied, bubbly watery... sour zingy mouth watering.... overall very good, and just the perfect carbonation.

- Must be my most favorite from Cascade so far, though I haven't had some of their more rare goodies as of late. I am thinking I liked the Sang Royal just a tad better than this one... though very close.
