look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from tap. Pours a dark red/purple color with a nice head.

Black raspberry dominated on the aromas. There is more to that with black cherries and sour berries.

Very smooth with a real refreshing tartness on the back end. Black raspberries dominate along with some black cherries as well.

This is a quality lower abv sour from cascade. There is a real refreshing quality on the feel with real good tones as well.

Had on tap at Brouwers.

A: Pours a deep crimson/purple with a small pink/purple head that reduces quickly and leaves no lacing.

S: Lots of raspberry and black raspberry with plenty of musty and funk as well.

T: Very similar to the aroma, fresh black raspberry, very nice tartness, hay and funk. Quite refreshing and tasty.

M: Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

O: A fantastic beer from Cascade. One of the highlights from the Big Wood event.

The beer comes in a gorgeous rose red color. Glowing and deep.

The aroma is probably the highlight. Intoxicating amounts of fresh fruit, tart berries.

The flavor follows with that raspberry upfront. A perfect balance of light sweetness, without being too puckering. Then onto a smooth finish as the medium plus tart quality dries away. Dangerously drinkable and truly delicious.

One of the best Cascades I have had.
