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.

A - Hazy red as of raspberry.
S - It smells very sour yet I'm struggling to pick out particular strands.
T - A little more oak character than in most other Cascade beers. Musty blueberry although its faint due to being such a mild fruit on such a sour beer. A tiny bit of bitterness to the finish.
M - Medium-low carbonation with a bright and refeshing feel on the palate.
O - Blueberry is overpowered by sourness.
Serving type: on-tap
