Poured into a tall stemmed tulip glass from a 740ml bottle.
Pours a very nice slightly pinkish/rose amber color. There is a nice quarter inch white head that is of medium density with some tighter bubbles sprinkled around. The color of this brew is gorgeous. A perfect mixing of pink, ruby and copper hues.
Aroma is delicious as well. Notes of sweet pie cherry filling with some underlying mild tartness. THe notes of sugary cherry jam and maraschino cherry notes are delicious and intermingle with a slight boozy heat in the nose as it warms. Notes of clove and slight cinnamon spice are present as well as some underlying notes of sweet Bourbon.
Flavor is pretty delicious. As is typical of these Cascade sours. Things start off with mild and approachable sweet-tart acidity and sourness. Notes of intermixed cherry tartness and sweetness roll around in the palette while some nice underlain notes of bourbon barrel, cinnamon spice and some slight woody vanilla notes. Mouthfeel is nice and fluffy.
Another great brew by Cascade. The cherry notes are delicious and its not overwhelmingly sour. A great beer.

I obtained this bottle in a trade with a great trader @thebeerprophet. Brought this to a bottle share at Proof. Pours a hazy very dark peach color. Good amount of head on the first pour that dissipated fairly quickly. Second pour got more head than the first. Nice medium white collar. Aroma is very earthy/woody and sweet-tart cherry blend. Taste is amazing. Very similar to the aroma, with some of the caramel/wood coming out. Mouthfeel is viscous for a sour; like chewing an overripe marischino cherry. Nice carbonation despite the low head. Pretty thick body. So glad I traded for this to share with good people.

Drank this on 4th of July, prior to the awesome Weidman/Silva parlay card I won! Pours a unique color. Pink, rose etc. . . thin head on it, dissipates very quickly.
Aroma was complex, cherry, berry, apricot, bourbon. Cherry and bourbon most prominent. Lactic tartness as always, all over this one.
Taste throws in some oak, coconut, vanilla on top of the aforementioned aromas that are tasted as well. Continues to develop in complexity and intracacies throughout. The quad base is obliterated. Drinks nowhere near as powerful as it indicates on the label. A chocolate undercurrent develops, probably from the Heaven Hill barrels. It is mildly sour, nowhere near most of their beers, even their other bourbon barrel sours like Vlad and Bourbonic seem to have a little more going for them in the straight up sour department.
A very good beer. Worth $30? Once, yeah. But I won't be stocking up on this one when there are just as good (if not better) options from the same brewery for only $20.

on-tap @ the barrel house
A ridiculously described beer, for sure. Glowing pinkish-red body, light pink film. Not particularly sour - the barrel imparts, or rather sledgehammers, notes of coconut and vanilla that make this a particular fitting beer to consume in a sunny spring day in Portland. Tons of sweet cherry, booze, tropical punch. Interesting stuff - not too upset that the direction of the night prevented me from buying a $30 bottle to go.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep reddish amber. Small off-white head with a thick collar. Not much else going on, but the color is nice
Smell - Cherry pie aroma. Acidic cherry. The noyaux comes through with the booze in the very back end. The bourbon is the best part, though. Gives it a richness that counterbalances the cherry.
Taste - Much more cherry dominant. Cherry pie, with a decent sourness. Again the noyaux is an afterthought and more of just a flavor to the alcohol, which is strong. Pale malt actually comes out. Bourbon lends a lot of vanilla and a nice liquor flavor. Not as rich as the nose.
Mouthfeel - It's boozy, but not too much. Moderate sourness. High carbonation. It could br a bit richer.
Overall - Multilayered sour. Very nice. The cherry is strong, but the bourbon is a good counterpoint.
