Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: barleywinefiend on 12-12-2011

This NW style sour wheat ale was barrel aged for up to 12 months with cranberries, orange peel and cinnamon. Soft aromas of cranberries and light floral notes start this beer off. Tart, dry notes of sweet cranberries with hints of wild strawberries on the palate give way to a pronounced dryness and a lingering finish of cranberries and spice.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

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

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Weird. And not very good.

A: The beer is hazy yellowish red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of funk, sourness, oak, and cranberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of oaky wood and cranberries along with slight hints of cinnamon. The spices become a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat tart and acidic on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has pleasant amounts of sourness along with notes of cranberries.

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.
