Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany color that is slightly hazy, with dark ruby hints around the edges. There is about a half finger of dark tan head that reduces pretty quickly, leaving a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Big currant scents on the nose. Also black cherries, oak, very light funk, a bit of lemony sourness and vinegar. Seems like this one is going to be fairly sour.

Taste: I get a lot of black cherries and currants up front. Hints of oak and a good deal of sourness on the back end. Lots of vinegar notes. Finish is oak, sourness and currant intermingling.

Mouthfeel/Overall: This beer is light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of spritzy carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. Not my favorite of the night, as it does turn a bit more sour as I'd like to see. I would definitely have it again though.

This one was a part of cmrillo’s 40 Beers* @ 40 Birthday Bash! Shared by cmrillo at his own party! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a reddish brown with a half finger khaki colored head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart, subtle funk, dark fruit, and wood. The flavor was of sweet malt, sour, tart, funk, and wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. This one was tasted in series with the other Cascade brews and it was another continuation of solid brews. I really like how this one took all the aspects people have grown to expect from the style and make it shine. I really wish there would have been a fruit aspect going on. It would have helped out with the tart and sour dominance of this one. Definitely worth seeking out if you have not had it.
