Little disappointed by this one - 2012 vintage - feel like it needs some age. There is a decent grape nose but the taste was overwhelmingly like Dimetapp and fruit juice. Might have been a bad bottle. Nice pour and smell though, as expected from Cascade.

A-Cloudy orange, highly carbonated to start but it dies off after a while.

S-Grapes, grapes. Lots of them. Some wood/oak as well.

T-Grapes everywhere. Amazing. Good deal of oak and wood. Good balance, earthy/grassy notes as well.

M-Lighter, good deal of carbonation, crisp and dry finish.

O-One of the better grape based sours I've had. The grape flavor was large and in charge but in nice balance with the other flavors. A solid sour.
