On tap at Cascade Brewing Barrelhouse in Portland, Oregon.

Pours a dark purple-brown body, one finger white head with good retention. Nice lacing and moderately sized film that sticks around a while. Smells of cherries, dark fruit, acetic acid, oak, raisins, fig. Quite acidic. Flavour is similarly acidic; lots of oak, a moderate contribution of cherry and dark fruit, not quite a true Kriek but the cherries are here to supplement the acidity and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, on the thinner side of the spectrum, good carbonation, hefty dose of acetic acid makes it a bit tough to scarf down. Overall, a very sour ale with a nice cherry presence.
