Bottle at tasting. Golden fuzzy pour. Strong aroma of horseblanket and apricot. Intense flavor of apricot, horseblanket, funky barnyard, mild vinous booze, oak and red fruit. Fantastic.

750ml. Cloudy pinkish red. My initial though was this smells like feet. Not really an appealing type of funk. Fortunately that goes away after a bit, or maybe i get used to it. Apricot and raspberry are an odd combo but mixed together it comes off as like a passion fruit. Medium sour. Not bad once you get past the odd funk at first sniff.

Klimaet (1110) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle thanks to Bursprak. Pours hazy reddish orange with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is lactic as fok, cherries, raspberris, stone fruits, light vinegary, oaky, light acetone, cascade funky. Taste is lactic, same light acetone in a way that keeps it going good - not too bad. Citrussy, vinegary, stone fruits, sweet raspberries, oaky, vanilla, sweet strawberries. Fuck damn this is good.

Mep3222 (1047) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Lactic sour aroma with apricot, raspberry and oaky Woody. Taste is Woody and oaky with the sour maybe 5 or 6 of 10 lactic. Not overpowering sour but still very sour. Super complex. Not sweet. Great raspberry and apricot flavors in there but balanced well with the sour and oaky flavors. Dry oaky finish. Maybe a bit too Woody and oaky but overall awesome sour. Almost borders on a dry rose wine that has been soured in a weird way. But so tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Dangerous bottleshares #18 . Thanks to Borhspruk. Pours deep red orange with no head. Aroma of raspberries, some apricot, oak, vinegar, weak acetone and fuuuhnk for dayz. The taste is tart and sour with notes of sour raspberries, vinegar, tannins, weak apricot and some citrus. I think this is the best cascade I have had so far - which is good!

Vestergaard (1295) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #18 Thanks to Bursprak. Pours a reddish orange with a small, white head. Aroma has lots of apricot, slight raspberry, super acidic, slight acetone, tons of oak, red wine. Taste is very sour, fruity, juicy, slight acetone, slight vinegary. Average carbonation, tickling sour body.

tmoreau (3268) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing an orangey, ruby tinted hue, with a modest layer of soft white head foam, and some light ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was light yeastiness, pit fruit as apricot, just a hint of rust that may well have been my reaction to a combination of oak & raspberry, and a decent, sour nature. The taste was similar notes less the rust, a little better than medium bodied, with good effervescence, dryness, and the continued, assertive sour nature. Nicely balanced blend.

Backlog. On draft @ Cascade Brewing Barrel House in Aug 2014 with Erica and Matt. Only notes are that it was a yellow pour which was tart and sour with no specific/distinguishable fruits detectable; just an overall fruity beer. Liked it.

Op mijn flesje stond 9,94%. Nu ja, veel verschil zal dit niet maken zeker? Oranje amberkleurig bier met kleine witte schuimkraag. Fruitige neus, vooral abrikoos en wat framboos. Zuure fruitsmaak die een tijd blijft verder zinderen.
