Pours cloudy gold with a little strawberry hue. Small white head with decent retention.
Light sour berries, oak, lacto and a bit of funk. Not a powerful aroma.
Taste is just sort of generically sour. It's the typical Cascade lacto and is done well, but I don't feel the strawberries really add too much and it's perhaps a touch less sour than the average Cascade wild. A little bit of berry with plenty of oak and good dose of funk. Good profile overall, but don't specifically get much strawberry.
Medium bodied. Well carbonated.
Despite some nitpicking still a solid beer that was enjoyed, but I wouldn't see myself picking this one up again in lieu of other Cascade beers I've enjoyed more.

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.
