What a weird color this one pours out into a snifter glass. Parts pink and brown! Aroma brought the complexities, cherry, berry, apricot, bourbon. Cherry and bourbon were the strongest aromas out of it. Its Cascade, so color yourself shocked when I speak of the lactic tartness all over this one.

The taste hits up vanilla, oak and coconut on top of the previously mentioned aromas that melded well. Continues to develop, ramping up the complexity and intracacies throughout it. This is a quad base? Wouldn't know from all the additional fruit and barrel treatment. Hides alcohol well. Heaven hill barrel kinda takes top fiddle over the sour cherries. Mildly sour, nowhere near as sour as most of their beers, even other ones like Bourbonic and Vlad bring more sour to the party.

A good beer, worth $30-35? No, haven't bought any more of these. Too spensive.

Drank this one at the 4th of July party, man I will never forget that Weidman/Silva parlay card.
