A: Poured a lighlt cloudy strawberry reddish color with a moderate whispy white head with decent retention leaving some faint bubbles with pink highlights

S: Barf, plastic, horseblanket and underlying strawberry

T: Initial pvc pipe, a burnt plastic wrapper of sorts with some musty/Earthy notes, with underlying strawberry, like second runnings of old strawberry jam. The finish is like a lingering plastic, some funky bitterness, lingers with some puree mashed strawberries. Not really pleasant.

M: Well carbonated, medium body, more plastic

O: Worst Cascade beer I have had to date

On tap at the barrel room yesterday.

Orange in color with a white head. Nose smells like bile, curdled stomach acids, strawberries, pepper and pain. Palate is thankfully, not as sour but with plenty of unripe strawberries fragrant and floral. Moderately sour with no funk. Ultimately, this tastes like white wine vinegar with strawberries. Meh.

On tap at the Cascade tasting room on Belmont. This is the 2013 project.

Smell is something chemical with extraterrestrial fermentation going on. Some kiind of Chinese medicine. I keep thinking of spar varnish. Color is tawny sherry with no foam.

Intense flavor from another universe. There is a totally bizarre light funk taste. The woody barrel taste seems to be the residual aftertaste of some kind of plastics industry. This is kind of fascinating in a horrifying way, but a few sips was the most I could manage.

Aroma: very strong plastic phenol that dominates other aromas, I thought it would dissipate after a few minutes but was still very strong after having been open 15 minutes, after that there is a candy like strawberry aroma along with a some butyric acid (vomit)

Apperance: light amber in color, quite hazy, one inch thick head that was mostly small bubbles but dissipated after a few minutes

Flavor: flavor is very tangy upfront with the strawberry being very subdued but being becoming more prominent in the aftertaste, very low bitterness, both plastic and vomit from aroma aren't nearly as strong (very subdued), finishes very dry

Mouthfeel: medium light body, medium low level of astringency, medium high to high level of carbonation lending some carbonic bite

Overall: the plastic phenol in the aroma tanks this beers and I only drank half of a glass, very disappointing compared to other cascade offerings

2014 project. Stored at cellar temperature.

This one was a gusher! Be careful when opening.
Super Phenolic and very astringent. It's like drinking a bandaid that has been puréed and fermented with strawberries. Then I kept sipping...and sipping...and it changed!!! It became more drinkable and actually somewhat enjoyable. Still nothing like some of the other flavors I have had from Cascade but not the worst either. I don't know if this would age well or not but perhaps some additional months in the cellar would have done a bottle good.

Cheers,

Wade
