I bought a bottle of this very cool named beer at Martys today for about twenty dollars. Poured in to a wine glass, color was darker than expected; almost an opaque strawberry brown, with a full finger of white head. Nose is of tart cherries, berries and more vinous fruits. Sourness in the taste is not too overpowering, in fact it is fairly gentle on the palate. As expected, body is light and crisp. Drinkability is very good, though this beer will sneak up on you, so be careful. This is a damn good offering from Cascade. They are definitely gaining momentum with their beers.

Nothing like a $600 kitchen plumbing disaster to make me want to crack open a $20 beer. Sang Royal is the winner tonite - into the Duvel tulip this C&C 750 goes after a light to moderate pop off the top...
If it wasn't a bit cloudy and turbid it'd be next-nigh perfect. Beautiful light-ginger 1 ½-finger head with a chunky seam topping a body that's a cross between a true Dunkel color and a jar of that sour cherry nectar/juice you find at Whole Foods. It takes a while to pour - there's some viscosity here. Intriguing to see the least. Head retention is pretty solid...lacing is tight. Sparse visible carbonation has some ups.
The funk on this is quite mild and meshed with moderate to ample carbonation scent it is very clean indeed. Mild spritely sour cherry scent layered with milky sour brett and more of a pine than a vanilla oaky backbone.
Light enough on the calmer side of Funkytown to be in the gateway sour space but it has enough complexity to keep it interesting. Definitely a little bit of wine barrel booty in here with the nice, mild acidic goodness of sour cherries. Synergy is solid here - nothing's overpowering but this works in Beautiful Chemistry...even at colder temperatures.
Nothing offensive on the palate feel. Carbonation keeps it jumping and diffuses this fine offering to all the senses quickly. Light oakiness/balsa wood cuts any heaviness of the huge dollop of cherries going on. Finish is one of the most crisp for a sour I've encountered...especially for one with an exceptional amount of fruit.
This would make an excellent nightcap, but I'm having this early in the evening. Doesn't make it any worse; this is well-constructed while being exceptionally accessible. There's a little heft in there but it's some wicked good $#!+. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em.

On-Tap @ Bailey's Taproom and poured into a 12oz. Snifter glass.
Pours a dense burgundy with a frothy, light reddish-tan head that slowly dissipates into a medium ring around the glass. Aroma is tart cherry and cranberry and maybe a big of sour funk/yeast. This beer is fairly tart with cherry and cranberry, flight bitterness and is most certainly mouth puckeringly sour. Its a light, crisp effervescent beer and is extremely drinkable and gets a bit hotter as you sip it.

Update, at time, I was comparing this to consecration batch one.
Did not know much about this beer besides it was a blend of different sour reds and then had cherries added to it.
A dark reddish brown with no lacing. See-through, can see that there is a lot of carbonation from looking at glass.
S tart cherries, oak notes, and wine/port funk.
T Wow! citrus, wine, with cherries, oak and port on the back end. tart at first and then sour on finish. enjoyable! Reminds me a lot of the Consecration. In fact I like it better than the consecration and it is a bit better of a value. Smoother and less acidic that the Consecration. Amazing blend.
M) Excellent. Consistent to what a sour should be. Makes me pucker up.
D) underhyped like all of their beers. Could be my favorite from them. Really looking forward to aging this bad boy. would choose this over Consecration and it's cheaper.
