750 ml bottle shared with neighborhood souress at her birthday fiesta 9.22.12.
Mostly white head small bubbles with some pink highlights, finger and a half head over pink/light red clear body, multiple streams of rising carbonation, minimal lacing. Fruitiness dominates the nose, minimal hop aromas. Very interesting taste profile, berries up front with a touch of sweetness, leading to a dry tart finish. Once the beer warmed past the suggested 40 degree serving temperature, good dose of funk, light hay and clean horseblanket, interesting. Mouthfeel on the light side of medium, very good effervescence. While I haven't had a lot of strawberry sours (Block 15's Strawberry Fields in my only other foray) I thought this was quite interesting, and with the relatively low ABV this would be a nice, though a bit spendy,, entry into the world of sours. Tasty, worth seeking out the next time it's released.

Thanks to Sam for this one. 750ml corked and caged bottle decanted and poured into a Hill Farmstead tulip.
1 Finger white foamy head with . Beer is a clear orange-pink. Very little lace. Decent.
Nose is big strawberry, some tartness. Syrupy with some hay funk. Moderately aromatic, light, spritzy and clean. Solid.
Opens tart. Lemon, strawberry seeds, dry hay, and rubber. Some cobweb and woodiness at the middle and end. Finishes tart and Brett. Strawberry seeds in the aftertaste. Fruit flavor is very mellow and subtle but overall flavor has a nice, balanced tartness. Tasty.
Light bodied with ample carbonation. Bubbly and crisp in the mouth and goes down foamy, filmy, and wet. Finish is messy with a lingering aftertaste. Showcases the flavor profile nicely.
Strawberry isn't an easy flavor to impart in sours and it shows here. Still, Cascade does a solid job of creating a balanced, interesting beer that is well worth drinking. Glad I had the chance to try this.

on-tap at cascade on a 90+ day in Portland
Pinkish hued - strongly carbonated. The strawberry plays pretty interesting - you can absolutely taste the seeds, maybe even more-so than the fruit. I scratched my head at first about the fruit composition trying to determine if I liked it - still not sure. Strawberry isn't an easy ingredient, but the Almanac Farmers Reserve #3 definitely showcased the fruit more attractively. Still snagged a bottle of this as its undeniably refreshing and will hit the spot the next time the temperatures exceed comfortable.
