Strawberry (2012 Project) – Cascade Brewing

From Portland Oregon’s Cascade Brewing comes their “Strawberry (2012 Project)” an American wild ale or sour ale.  The base beer for Strawberry is a Wheat Ale.  The beer pours a very cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of mild strawberries, wheat and mild tartness.  The flavour is of tart strawberries, sour, wheat, oak and yeasty notes.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.1%.  This is not anywhere as powerfully sour as most Cascade beers.  This is an amazing sour to be consumed on a patio in the summer!

Commercial Description:  This NW style sour is a crisp, refreshing wheat beer that was barrel-aged for seven months then additionaly aged with strawberries for another eight months. Bright, sweet strawberries and light candy notes greet you in the nose. A light tartness and berry sweetness intermingle on the palate, giving way to a light, sparkling fresh berry tartness in the finish. It is better as a breakfast beer or a dessert? You decide.
