Draft at Bar G. Nothing too exciting about the pour, but the flavor is top notch. Citrus aroma, orange peel. Bolder citrus in the taste, mild pucker, perfect on a hot summer day.

A: Poured into a tulip to a light and bright orange topped by a fluffy two and a half finger head that fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing.
S: Smells of oak, sourness, barnyard funk, and a little bit of orange aroma.
T: Taste is a nice and bright sourness up front with some bright and juicy orange flavors intermingled with some funy and oak. Real nice balance on the flavor with the oranges coming through on the sweet side to balance out the sour. Swallow is more sourness, light funk, slight pale malt, and lingering orange with the acidity lingering the longest.
M: This beer is on the lighter side of medium in body with effervescent carbonation indicative of bottle conditioning. The acidity makes this beer finish on the dry side of things.
O: Overall this is a fantastic beer with some really nice flavors and complexity from the fruit additions, wild fermentation and aging on oak. Definitely a pleasure to drink and worth a try if you can find it.

-hazy pale amber tap pour has 1cm of foam (early) and a citrus and vinegar nose. The flavors are gentler, orange and lemon with a vinous line and oak notes. The bitterness is moderate. This style is a favorite. Wine-like and wonderful.

2016- Nice barrel character comes in to complement the orange notes. Enjoyed this one quite a bit (not that I've ever had a bad beer from Cascade). Do your self a favor and have a beer from them when you get the opportunity. Its well worth the price.

on tap at goed zuur in denver, which is fast becoming one of the most relevant beer spots in town. i had not seen this one before. its a sour done with oranges, and its really nice. it is easily one of the most delicate cascade sours i have had. usually their stuff is so bacterially acidic that its hard to drink much of, but this one just has a clean pucker, a bright tang without the teeth dissolving or the stomach turning sourness of so many of their others. the orange is fresh and young and juicy in here too, a little sweet, very natural, but also like essential oils, bitterness, and zesty intensity from the peel, kind of the best of both worlds, the whole fruit spectrum in this lighter brew. very simple pale malt grain base is nice too, the fruit really shines through it and its just enough to stand up to the sourness, this has some structure but really is quite mild overall. almost assuredly some pale wheat malt in the mix boosting it a little bit. some floral funkiness and must along with the citrusy sourness, but its gentle as well, and just adds a wrinkle without taking this too wild. i love the balance between the fruit and the yeast elements, and i like how drinkable this one is in the context of their other sours. great carbonation and brightness, super summery and refreshing, and overall just as high quality as all of the cascade stuff. i hadnt seen anything new from them in this market in a long time, so this was a pleasant surprise!
