Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice clear pinkish wheat hue with as thin wispy white head that leaves moss thin wisps. Solid for a wild.

S - Aromas of light floral strawberries, more like strawberry candy than fresh berries. Still, very pleasant with light wheat notes and faint oak.

T - Taste is a combination of strawberry candy and flashes of ripe strawberries. Faint seed notes, nice sour vinegar, floral berries, lingering light sweet jam.

M - Mouthfeel is super brightly carbonated, almost distracting so. Quite sharp.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, great strawberry notes, delicious and fragrant.

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.
