very clever wild ale here, the addition of vanilla to the strawberry balances tartness and adds a cool wrinkle to it, makes it almost candy-like. i would say this one is a step or so below the level of the other fruit sours ive had from cascade. it doesnt come through as clean or as forward, the sourness is a little disjointed from the berry, and the overall beer has a little more residual sugar than i care for, at least in high doses. still, this pinkish red cloudy brew is a rare treat, and the layer of vanilla running through it is a nice touch, i think it brings out the creamy side of the strawberry, like a parfait or something. the sourness clashes just a little with that richness, with its astringent lactic tartness, trying to quicken the finish, but not quite getting there. age may fix that. strawberry is a fruit thats tough to execute well in beer, so its impressive to even get it as forward as it is, unmistakable for sure, but with a jammy sweetness that is one level too far for me. sits a little odd in the stomach as a result, but the vibrant carbonation and medium body are both soothing. i will have to revisit this one when i am not in a session of other incredible wild ales, it was lost in the shuffle a little bit, but a really tasty and unique use of strawberry overall.
