A-Deep ruby in the glass, not much carbonation.

S-Cherries, lots of them. Caramel, the red ale base is present and there is a slight oak note.

T-Nice sour notes and cherries, oak is there and once again a bit of the red ale base comes through.

M-Medium bodied, well carbonated.

O-A good sour, the red ale base added some depth to the beer but nothing spectacular.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Bright blood red. No head. Just a few stray bubbles.

Smell - Wow, cherries. Cherry pie sweet and tart aroma. Malty and kinda musty.

Taste - More sour, but it's mostly sour cherry sourness. Less sweet than the smell suggests. Musty and grainy malts more prominent. Sour, but it dies down with the malty sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium heavy, even a little syrupy.

Overall - Excellent cherry flavor. If you're into the intense fruit beers, this is good stuff.

Poured into a wine glass form a 750ml bottle.

Pours a deep dark ruby red with a nice off-white thin and dense head. The head recedes very quickly and is quite active and effervescent.

Aroma is strong and acidic. Starts off with notes of sour cherries. Acidic tartness mixed in with notes of delicious sweet cherry juice and cherry jam. There is definitely some oak barrel wood notes in the nose as well as some lactic and chalky notes.

Flavor starts off like most Cascade beers. Sour. Sour. Sour. Notes of tart acidic cherry juice creep up with some nice yeasty earth tones. Notes of barrel and funk can be perceived slightly in the flavor. There are some slight hints of cherry sweetness that can be perceived but for the most part the lactic and acidic sharp tartness dominates. Very similar to the Sang Noir. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with nice lower than usual carbonation.
