“The Belly” brought this bad boy over the other day and we just had to partake. Not a cheap brew at almost $20, Cascade Cuvée du Jongleur had some high expectations to meet… and meet them it almost did.
This big, bad boy is definitely a sour… but not a super strong sour, by any means. Very approachable for the style, giving you a good introduction, so to speak. The head is nice and white with a light brown pour, the nose has a nice sour aroma… sweet and oaky. A bit of cherry in there somewhere. As noted, the body is sour but not strong, like a sour with training wheels. Finish is high and tight with just a faint linger before a clean departure.
Overall this isn’t a bad brew… really pretty good for the style. For the price, though, it isn’t one to take lightly. I will sparing buy this again, I am sure.
