on tap at the brewery, Portland
Shiny gold with snowy film.
White balsamic nose with fruity undertones.
Lemon, white grape, spiced golden sultana chutney, tart zestiness, more white vinegar bite, a chardonnay edge and grapefruit sorbet ending.
Lemon curd hard candy (!) finish and dry linger.
Crisp, dry, no heat at all.
Complex, subtle, balanced, and nuanced. Made to marry with goats’ cheese. Opens well, amazingly intricate, rewards revisits.
Probably the best American sour I’ve tasted.

2012 Project. Pours a hazy, golden peach color with a medium-large white head that goes down quickly. Scent is VERY inviting. A good amount of Chardonnay, along with white grape skin, sour lemons, zesty lemon peel, and barnyard funk. Quite a bit of oak as well...damn this beer smells good. Taste is sour lemons up front, the lemon sourness is spot on with this one. Followed by chardonnay and white grape flavors. More lemon and a hint of peach and other stone fruit. Lots of oak and funk with this one. Very sour, with a bit of acidity. On the back of the tongue, you get a hint of fig sweetness. Mouthfeel is bright, and highly carbonated. Medium body with puckering crispiness. Drinkability is very high...you would never be able to tell this beer is 10% ABV. Overall, another AMAZING sour ale from Cascade. These guys never disappoint. I regret not purchasing two of these bottles.
