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.

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.

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.

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

Murky rosy color. Small-ish head. Some yeast sediment. Smell is bretty and vaguely fruity. Moderate sourness. Subtle berry notes. OK. Not worth the money, though.

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.
