2008 Oude Rouge at Cascade Brewing Barrel House
Tonight’s Tap It Tuesday at 6pm is pretty amazing – 2008 Oude Rouge is a blend of vintage draft and barrel aged Northwest style sour red ale that’s been sleeping in our cellar for almost five years; it’s essentially a vintage version of the Sang Rouge. Dusty aromas of dark cherries, dark caramels and currants come alive as the glass warms in your hands. Rich red malts and tart dark cherries on the palate give way to notes of dark caramel and dried fruits that linger in the dry finish. This is a special celebratory barrel to announce the new oak tank, or Fodre, that we just received, which we will be filling with Sang Rouge; we hope to have this version of the Sang series always on tap. 7.5% ABV, $8 glass, $3 taster.
