Pours a rose/raspberry color with a foamy white head that laces. The nose has non-distinct berry notes, some vinous oak, a hint of latex and yeast. It drinks with a similar flavor profile - tart berry, some grain, and sour culture - which dominates the palate. This is a relatively approachable sour for cascade, it's not overly sour/dry and has a great berry presence. The oak is not overpowering and alcohol presence is minimal. I don't think most people would say "this is cranberry" during a blind tasting, but they say you're other senses are enhanced when you're missing one. I wouldn't buy this again for the price :

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy red body. White head. Good retention.

Smell - Bubble gum. Some fuzziness. Like alpaca wool left out in the rain. Berry aroma.

Taste - Berry. Grainy. Bubble gummy again. Wheaty. Mildly sour.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Weird. And not very good.

Extremely impressed by this offering from Cascade. The cranberry isn't necessarily overly strong in flavor but the layers of flavor consisting of cranberry, tartness/sourness, oak, and some tart apple was excellent. Complex, drinkable, and a solid medium bodied mouthfeel and body.

The second Cascade sour I've had that I didn't enjoy (the other being Vine). A lot of tartness from the Cranberry but I didn't enjoy the flavors from it. That said, I think canned Cranberry sauce is better than fresh, so maybe I just don't like Cranberry.

Thanks to hopodyssey for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

2014 project.

Pours a murky light orange-red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, fruit, cranberry juice, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit, citrus zest, spice, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

This would benefit from aging. 2014 vintage. I will not try anything sooner
