A: Dirty burnt amber red color. Faint layer of head. No lacing. Looks fairly still in the glass, but that might also have to do with the tiny glass.

S: Big dark sour cherry. Some of that red ale character. Hints of vanilla. Some of that dry oak. Tannic notes. Love that lactic sour coming through.

T: This is probably my favorite Cascade ever. Big tart Cherry sourness on the tip if the tongue. Mouth puckering for sure. Then you get some of that tannic oak dryness. Some of the red ale character: nuttiness and vanilla. Prickly carbonation. Dry finish with lingering sour.

M: medium bodied high carb

Sang is a beautiful cherry mahogany color on the pour. The nose is grenadine. Sang is more restrained sour-wise than the other Cascades I've tried -- and all the better for it. No need to grab for the Tums. The cherry and oak interlace perfectly and the bite of sour cherries is rounded out nicely by the malt. I had a Supplication last night, so it's interesting to compare the two. Supplication is more complex, but Sang is an excellent beer.
