This beer pours a dark purple to brown with a small white head. It has medium low carbonation. The beer smells of dark grapes, black cherry, port, bourbon, and cinnamon. It tastes of dark grape skins, black cherry, port, bourbon, and cinnamon. It has a full body, with good complexity. This is s great sour from Cascade.

Poured from a 750ml corked bottle into a stemmed wine glass. Purchased in Attleboro MA.

Pours a muddy hazy brown body with an off white head that reduces to a single layer with some spotty lacing.

Aromas are lactic with dark fruits with some oak. Taste is pretty sour with cherries and dark fruits, lactic sourness, slightly acetic, sherry, definitely sweet, plums, brown sugar. Finish is tannic. Medium body with medium low carbonation.

Upon entering the pearly gates and making myself at home, just after I wake up and saunter to the kitchen for breakfast, I imagine this is what Miranda Kerr would be juicing me. A bouquet of super dark fruit and red wine for days, are met by a perfect lip puckering punch. Does Raul say hallelujah for Sang Noir? I think he does.

Good God. I'm not even a big sour drinker but every time I put Cascade in my face I'm filled with joy. Had this minutes before A Cantillon Kriek. No contest, this wins.
