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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

2014 project. 8.2% ABV

750 ml bottle poured into a wine glass

Appearance: Pours a murky dark pink, or light red/orange color with about a finger of an off white head that settles to a thick ring. Body is hazy but translucent.

Smell: Funk (more than most Cascades), hay, cranberries, strawberries, damp wood with some hints of citrus and vanilla.

Taste: Tart cranberry juice, citrus, hay and wheat. Some spices , vanilla and lacto come through in the finish. Sourness is medium.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with somewhat of a creamy mouthfeel, but medium/high aggressive carbonation.

Overall: Another good one from Cascade. Not one of their best beers but still worth picking up.
