The beer pours a cloudy amber brown with a good amount if sediment settled in the glass and topped by a thin, off white head. The nose is tart cherries, a hint of bourbon, some spice and booze. There's a similar cherry spice character in the taste which transitions into a sweet bourbony, citrusy aftertaste. The mouthfeel is definitely sweeter cherries upfront, followed by a dry, boozy citrusy finish. This beer delivers on the bourbon and cherry front, but is a bit sweeter than expected. Delightful beer with some distinct cherries and barrel characteristics, unsure how it will age.

4.23/5 rDev -0.7%

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.
