look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle poured into a wine glass. 2012 project. 10.12% ABV.

Appearance: Pours a very dark red brown color with less than a finger of a tan head that dissipates quickly to a thin collar. Body dark and just barely translucent.

Smell: Sour cherry, red wine, oak, leather, tobacco, black currants.

Taste: Similar to the aroma. Black currant, sour cherry, red wine, leather, lacto, toasted oak and some port like character and sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied with medium carbonation. Surprisingly light considering the ABV. Booze hidden really well for 10.12%.

Overall: Another great sour from Cascade. Lots of barrel character that works well with the base beer. Worth seeking out.

Shared at a 10K review beer tasting; drank from a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter.
Thanks to iguenard for the bottle!
2009 Vintage, Poured Sep 2014

Pours a deep brown, ruby red color, hazy with a short-lived bubbly tan head with no lacing. Big tart nose here, loaded with sour cherries, lemon rind, a bit of funk. On the palate, the first sip assaults the sour taste buds on the back of ones tongue; it is an intense blast of vinegar! The flavor does transition nicely though, especially as the beer and my palate opens up and the subtleties come through, again, sour cherries, grape skins, oak, wet wood, and vinous notes. The body is medium and the carbonation keeps it light. This was a really interesting beer.
