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

750 ml bottle poured into a wine glass. 2013 project. 8.0% ABV

Appearance: Pours a dark reddish orange with 1 finger of a fizzy off white/eggshell colored head that settles quickly to a very thick ring. Body is very hazy but still translucent, with quite a bit of visible carbonation.

Smell: Strawberries (surprise!), with lesser notes of oak, wheat and slight spices. Straightforward and clean for the most part, but with a hint of a bandaid/medicinal character that I get in a lot of strawberry sours.

Taste: Medium/high acidic sourness. Strawberry mostly with hints of vanilla, oak and lacto, but all of those are much less prominent. Like the aroma there's also distinctive, what I can best describe as, bandaid character that comes out more in the finish and aftertaste. It doesn't completely override everything else, but it does take a bit away from the overall enjoyment.

Mouthfeel: Fully end of medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation borders on high. Alcohol is hidden reasonably well, but does begin to produce a warming sensation in the chest the most it's consumed.

Overall: Good, but definitely one of Cascade's weaker offerings. I'm beginning to think strawberries are just not a fruit that's meant to be brewed with as I've yet to try a great beer that uses them. As for this specific one, go ahead and try it if you're a fan of Cascade, sours or strawberries in general, but I doubt I'll be getting this again.
