BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Oregon, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This NW style sour wheat ale was barrel aged for up to 12 months with cranberries, orange peel and cinnamon. Soft aromas of cranberries and light floral notes start this beer off. Tart, dry notes of sweet cranberries with hints of wild strawberries on the palate give way to a pronounced dryness and a lingering finish of cranberries and spice.

Surprised -- Looks like sherry in the glass. Expected something several shades darker.

Love this brewery. Will do backflips when I see something new from them.

Aroma is sharp. Smell the alcohol right away, plus a tease of that famous cascade lacto culture. Also bubble gum. Like opening a bag of big league chew. Which is kinda awesome.

Taste is almost medicinal. Really sharp lacto bite followed by equally tart cranberry snap. Then you get a front row seat to the battle between orange and cinnamon. Spoiler alert -- nobody wins.

Also -- at 8%. It's waaaay too boozy. Ok. It's on the bottle so it's my bad but this is winter Warmer duvell level strength. Not cool.

Interesting but not my favorite from cascade. Glad I tried it all the same.
