look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Poured a lighlt cloudy strawberry reddish color with a moderate whispy white head with decent retention leaving some faint bubbles with pink highlights

S: Barf, plastic, horseblanket and underlying strawberry

T: Initial pvc pipe, a burnt plastic wrapper of sorts with some musty/Earthy notes, with underlying strawberry, like second runnings of old strawberry jam. The finish is like a lingering plastic, some funky bitterness, lingers with some puree mashed strawberries. Not really pleasant.

M: Well carbonated, medium body, more plastic

O: Worst Cascade beer I have had to date

On tap at the barrel room yesterday.

Orange in color with a white head. Nose smells like bile, curdled stomach acids, strawberries, pepper and pain. Palate is thankfully, not as sour but with plenty of unripe strawberries fragrant and floral. Moderately sour with no funk. Ultimately, this tastes like white wine vinegar with strawberries. Meh.

look: 5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Aroma: very strong plastic phenol that dominates other aromas, I thought it would dissipate after a few minutes but was still very strong after having been open 15 minutes, after that there is a candy like strawberry aroma along with a some butyric acid (vomit)

Apperance: light amber in color, quite hazy, one inch thick head that was mostly small bubbles but dissipated after a few minutes

Flavor: flavor is very tangy upfront with the strawberry being very subdued but being becoming more prominent in the aftertaste, very low bitterness, both plastic and vomit from aroma aren't nearly as strong (very subdued), finishes very dry

Mouthfeel: medium light body, medium low level of astringency, medium high to high level of carbonation lending some carbonic bite

Overall: the plastic phenol in the aroma tanks this beers and I only drank half of a glass, very disappointing compared to other cascade offerings

Another beer served without an actual name. If anyone knows the name of this beer, please combine with the proper listing.

Served in tulip. Poured a light golden amber color with just a thin ring of white head that had OK retention and no lacing. The aroma was mostly tart, not really sour, with some faint berry sweetness and basic graininess underneath.

That description also applies to the flavor profile. Nicely tart, but not palate wreckingly sour, a bit of fruitiness and a touch of malty grain reach the tongue. The body was on the thin side and had a nice lingering finish. The drinkability was OK, it may not be sour enough for some Sour fans, but I enjoyed the tartness. Overall, a nice, but not great, little beer. Worth trying if you see it. Or know what it is called.
