A - Beaten egg-white foam perches on the dusty red decoction.

S - Cherry pie.

T - Musty cherries with wood character and decent funk. Chocolate on the finish

M - Unobtrusive. Tied the beer together nicely.

O - Pretty much the only Cascade sour I was tempted to by a bottle of when I visited their brewpub. Came together really nicely. I find this to be slightly underrated.

Vintage unknown, but most likely 2010. Pours a reddish-brown hue with a loose, half-inch head and a hazy clarity. Nose reveals cherries and a suggestion of cough syrup. Taste consistent with nose. This beer is tart, but not overly so. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body with some astringency and a residual burn at the back of the throat. Overall, a solid kriek with some brune-like qualities.
