Sang Rouge (2015)
A Note on This Beer
If you went to Portland in 2015 and asked locals where to find the best Sour Ales, they’d direct you to Cascade Brewing and tell you to order a bottle of Sang Rouge.
A blend of Sour Red Ales brewed by one of the pioneers of American-style Sours themselves, Sang Rouge quickly proved itself a mouth-puckering favorite.
But then, the multi-GABF Medalists at Oregon’s Cascade shocked local craft fans by hiding this beloved Sour away for two years in Oak Red Wine Puncheons!
Now in 2019, Sang Rouge is back in all its oak-aged glory. Leave it to the 4.12 UT-rated Cascade brewers to stop bottling one of their most popular beers with the express purpose of elevating its complex and jammy fruit character through barrel aging!
Grab a bottle of Sang Rouge (2015) now and start impressing everyone at your next bottle share! Or keep this 7.8% ABV tart sipper all to yourself and see why years in Oak Wine Barrels is, hands-down, one of the most flavorful brew methods of all.
Each sip is naturally layered in tart cherry, tangy-sweet raspberry, dried currant, roasted malt, cardamom spice and charred oak! You’ll swear Cascade added fruit and spices, but the flavor here is “au natural” thanks to the brewery’s meticulous barrel-aging and well-crafted Sour Red base.
Grab your bottle of Sang Rouge while you still can. We don’t know how many years it will be before Cascade reveals their next barrel-aged masterpiece!
