Absolutely phenomenal Wild Ale. Delicious blend of quad and blonde Ales barrel aged to perfection. Peaches, vanilla and of the good wild stuff come together with a wonderful complexity smoothed out by the bourbon and wine barrels. Cascade does this better than anybody else and it isn't even close.

this is so good, some of the best cascade out there, sick to score some on tap courtesy of the handlebar, they seem to always have some heady cascade stuff in the house. this is a blend of barrel aged sours, some in bourbon and some in wine, done with peaches, and its amazing. not a ton of head from the tap, or rather it settles fast, a rust orange tone to it, some light haze, a little viscosity too teasing the higher abv. the nose is awesome, quite sour as so much of the cascade stuff is, but the peaches are obvious, surprisingly i get as much wine as i do bourbon, and it almost smells kind of belgian too, candy and fruity esters together, woody, complex as they come. the flavor is great too, nice and barrel forward with some of the alcohol peaking through right away, the peaches are ripe and obvious, almost caramelized or grilled or something, stewed, cooked, neat with the barrel char, and overall this is very tart but not as acidic as it smells, and not as intense as a lot of cascade beers, even though its still pretty sharp. the peaches are super well integrated, they play amazingly well with the malts in this, richer chateau type grain bill here, some of the quad in the blend is evident to me as this warms. for me it could use a little more carbonation, it sags a little and gets heavier as it comes up to temperature, but i love everything about this, the flavors are awesome, and i like the mix of wine and bourbon on it, makes it super unique. one of the better cascade beers i have had in some time, impressively dynamic. yum!

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a deep golden orange tropped by a dense and slightly rocky finer and a half of off white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of a nose full of juicy peaches and sourness with a touch of oak and funk.
T: Taste is huge sour peach note with some nice funk going on along with a little oak. Hints of vanilla at times along with a little bit of leather. Slight musty barnyard and wet hay as well at times. On the swallow there's more sour peaches, oak, light vanilla, and slight lingering funk
M: This beer has a body which is fairly middle of the road with a slightly syrupy feel to it. Carbonation is effervescent and slightly prickly at times while the beer has a drying finish due to the acidity.
O: Overall this beer hits just as advertised. Really nice juicy peach notes with a balancing amount of sourness. This is a little more funky than some of the other Cascade beers but that's alright with me. Well worth a try if you can find this one.

Pours a foggy, murky burnt-orange with a finger of off-white foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is peach - first and foremost - with a little lemon squeeze, clove, flower, and toasty, nutty malts. It has a distinctly sour note, but not as in 'the peaches went bad.' Flavor profile is deep and fleshy peach with a ripe finish. Lemon, clove, flower, caramel and toasty and nutty malts offer up a little depth and support, but the narrative is - peach and sour. Lactic sour bite at the finish grabs the tongue and gives it a firm twist. As a '16 bottle consumed in '19, the sourness may have taken off a bit more as the beer aged. Mouth feel is a prickly, crisp effervescence with a lightly soft texture at the finish. It has a medium-thin consistency. Overall, peaches through and through and sour with a solid and firm bite.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 750mL bottle. 2016 bottle. Consumed 8/12/19.

(750 ml 2017 bottle... split between two snifters)

Hazy, peachy-orange liquid with long-lasting cottony foam on the pour; scant lacing... brief pop of perfumy peach liqueur on the nose, but it quickly gives way to acetic, nose-moistening noise; intensity is fantastic, if aroma definition chunky and mangled; a ton of wood presence, but only a little bourbon nuance... on the palate: intense acidity and sourness all the way; intensity in attack forceful, but little clarity from the fruit adjunct - the result: a generic (non-berry-like) fruity base with some subtle wheat character and a ripping wash of sour with each sip, subtle vanilla note from the barrel in the aftertaste... sourness lights up the palate with each sip, humming; the alcohol seems to hang in the background, perhaps enlivening the puckering punch, but not providing much heat, which is nice... nice the first few sips, but soon a taxing task; one glass is enough; something to share once in awhile - the Cascade sours are all fairly one-note, but this may stand out a little from the pack

Another winner from cascade! They have their patented sour and tart finish on full display, while also featuring the bourbon booze and brown sugar sweetness on the end. Well done on getting the peach flavors to really come through without the mineral aftertaste. Supporting cast includes oak, funky yeast, hibiscus, pineapple, and pear. Nice balance while allowing flavors to flourish together!

750ml bottle split between a pair of small Cantillon glasses. 2017 bottle. I don't see any dates aside from that.

Pours clear golden with a little bronze, no head, light carbonation. Smell is tart, peachy.

Taste is peachy, oaky, tart.

Mouthfeel is thin, dry, and too flat. Overall, it's not bad.
