2.14/5 rDev -48.3%
Corked and caged bottle from Gator Beverage. Pours a deep ruby purple color with a small pinkish white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sour vinegar, sour cherry, a little vanilla oak, and some light berry notes. Flavor is oaky vanilla sour vinegar with just a light highlight of blueberry, and a hint of the vomity acidic acetone flavor I get from any beer with blueberries in it. Luckily it isn’t super of off-putting in this beer as it is hidden by the sour vinegar and oaky vanilla flavors. Light ot medium bodied with lots of spritzy carbonation. Interesting beer that leaves a good bit to be desired. This is my third Cascade brew and I continue to be underwhelmed. Hopefully the Kriek in the fridge changes my mind. At $30 a bottle I expect a good bit more, but I guess the souring and oak come through nicely here.
As I go on, this gets more and more like drinking rubbing alcohol. Not sure if this is a bad bottle or what, but not good.
This is getting worse and worse. Like drinking straight paint thinner. Just terrible. Nope.

thanks to shep for this
pours a deep pinkish purple with a nice inch of so of deep pinkish head.
lots of oak on the nose, some faint tart berry.
again, very heavy on the oak. lightly sour. blueberry is faint to non existent. the oak dominates, at times i was picking up a burnt plastic flavor.
moderate carbonation with a light mouthfeel. some dryness.
this just never really won me over. i love cascade and everything has been rock solid but this just was lacking for me.
