2012 Project, 7.2% abv.

It pours a cloudy reddish brown, has a small head of foam but does a good job with the lacing.

The nose is big with lots of sour cherry goodness and a strong oak presence. I could sit and sniff for quite a long time if I wanted to.

Glorious sour cherry flavour up front mixed in with a vinegar like sourness and an in the somewhat background taste what oak barrel aging brings. It is beers from Cascade like this that bring me back to their online page to order again and again.

Nice combo of carbonation and body makes it eminently mouth pleasing.

Another great brew from Cascade. Big surprise there..
