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.

Poured a ruddy, hazy red with two fingers of off-white head. Relatively mild aroma of tart cranberry.

Moderate carbonation and a full, smooth mouthfeel. Cranberry up front with a wheaty backbone and a slight tartness on the tail end. Less sour that expected; the tartness is more an undercurrent and the fruit and malt comes through a little more.

Nice overall, but not as impressive as many other Cascade brews. (414 characters)

Poured on draft at Cascade:

Pours a raspberry color with a fluffy white head and ample lacing. The nose is berry-rich and yeasty. Oak is present as well and the taste follows suit, and is slightly tart. I'd definitely consider this a nice entry to sours for a newbie. Oddly, I don't detect much cranberry in the nose or taste. There's some berry there, yes - but I expected more of a cranberry presence. Really good beer. Try one yourself. Cheers! (448 characters)

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. (329 characters)

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.
