Tasted at EBF. Didn't compare to other Cascades in my opinion.

Thanks, Jason.

Clear crimson body with a head that crackles away quickly. Smells strongly of bourbon and acetic acid, with an unpleasant metallic note that dissipates as the beer warms up. Vinegar seems dominant over the typical Cascade lacto character. Cherries are barely present on the nose. The palate is similar, very bourbon-heavy and rather sweet, with milder vinous notes and a hint of cherry. Stomach-churning acidity is pervasive and makes this beer a chore to drink after 2 or 3 oz. Pretty harsh and unrefined stuff, but not bad.

Great share from Al, missed you today bud. 4 oz. poured in an FFF Rastal on August 18th, 2012.

A - Dark brown coloring with slightly red hues. Virtually no head, retention, or lacing.

S - Natural and dominant cherry rinds. Light granny smith apple tartness, oak. Not too complex.

T - Quite sour with overripened cherry juice, vinegar, lime, and very lightly charred oak. Was this really in a whiskey barrel?

M - High carbonation, light body, pretty dry finish

D - I like this but im not blown away. The cherry is very natural and well done and reminds me of RR.

For the price, definitely not worth it, way to 1 dimensional almost boonesfarmish. Hopefully, I spent $25 on a lesser bottle, otherwise I do think this should be $5-$8 a bomber. Honestly, I had 5 or 6 better beers on tap in their tap room while trying their flights.
