2011 vintage, thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head disappears pretty quickly, typical sour fashion, hazy reddish orange color.

Nose is nice, lots of strawberry, light tannic earthy seed, a bit of a creamy wheat and nice acetic acid, a fermented strawberry like sour aroma, nice generic tart sour fruit aroma.

Taste is quite sour, tart fruit, little generic sour berry, but lots of nice strawberry, juicy fermented strawberry juice like a concentrate version, with more earthy flavours and tannic seed. Into acetic acid, little creamy wheat soured, light flemmy with nice overall tartness, bit of a frozen strawberry. Finish is flemmy and little sticky but dry, nice long sour and tart fruit, again frozen strawberry and tannic seed.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, too much carb, light acidic bite.

Overall good, nice strawberry and sour fruit, good acid and tartness, strawberry is a bit more like frozen fruit.

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.
