Cerise Nouveau 2012 Project
8.12% ABV
750ml Bottle

A: Wine color. It looks like carbonated Cabernet ^^ One finger head.

S: Typical Cascade sours aroma, cherries, citrus, some sweetness, funk, jam

T: It's not as strong, but you can definitely get the cherries. Sour, tart, oak, funk.

M: Perfect amount of carbonation, dry finish.

O: I am very biased since I happen to enjoy all (most) Cascade sours and this one was no exception. Bing cherries aren't very dominant in the aroma or taste (although it definitely dominates in the appearance). Recommended but there are better sours by Cascade (like Noyaux, Sang Noir, Nightfall blackberry, etc.)

Edit: I let the beer warm a bit and it tasted a whole lot better. Bing cherries can be tasted more and it adds more flavor and tartness. I adjustd my scores to give a 4.5 average.

Shared by Rutager.

A: Deep red with a slight white head.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium to low level of carbonation.

O: Excellent, very refreshing and tasty.

thanks joe

the beer pours a deep, dark, cloudy, slightly rusty maroon with a head that disappears in a blink. the nose is cherry forward and sweet with a slight tartness. the taste is definitely slightly danker, but hugely tart cherries forward. it drinks with a lot more character compared to the kriek. it's medium bodied, drinkable, dank, tart, semi-dry, and distinctly cherry. the beer definitely lives up to my cascade standard, great cherry, worth trying.
