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.

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.

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 :
