4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle split with jamesy on 7/16/16. This does so many different things so well. The underlying beer is really complex, with a pretty puckering sourness that’s also balanced by a long time aging in the barrel. But it’s the additional raspberry and apricot infusion that really elevates everything. The berries add a straightforward "fruity" flavor and a great reddish tint, and the apricot accentuates the crispness and the dryness of the base beer. Phenomenal.

Bottle at Bar Gernika. Thanks Jared. Sour not my favorite, but Cascade always rocks. Berries and pit fruit combine beautifully, ad always a mellow sour vibe. Just gorgeous.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. The pour is a dirty rusty color with a small gray head that falls down with no lace. The aroma is more raspberry up front with a nice apricot and a strong funkiness. There is a little lemon present as well. The flavor is similar. There is a nice funky tart berry and peach combo that offers a little vinousness. The mouth feel is a little heavy for what I’d like to see in a sour, and it’s relatively well carbonated. The aftertaste is all fruit and funk on the back end. This is a pretty interesting way to start the tasting off!

Pours hazy grapefruit with a thin eggshell head. Aroma features citrus and fresh malt notes. Sharply sour flavor delivers grapefruit and woody tones. Body and fizz are both good. Ride the cascade!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A 750ml corked and caged bottle from 2014 project, poured into a To Øl teku glass. It poured a slightly hazy strawberry red colour with a half finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aromas were funky, oak, raspberries, lemon and a hint of apricot. Tastes sour, tart, oak, raspberry and strawberry. Dry, medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall some very nice funk, easy to drink and definitely does not feel like 9.29% abv. I did not know what apricot noyaux was but apparently it is from apricot kernels. I guess this explained the lack of apricot I was expecting in the taste.
