COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cascade Apricot Ale is based on our Temptor Triple Ale that has undergone over 8 months of lactic fermentation and oak barrel aging. Ripe NW Apricots are fermented with this beer for 3 additional months. This hand packaged and bottle conditioned ale will only get better with age ... good luck waiting.

Serve at 45-50 Degrees F.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Location: Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14

Aroma: The nose is fruity and funky, quite acidic, and balanced nicely by the apricot
Appearance: It pours a cloudy reddish-orange with a creamy colored head on it
Flavor: The flavor is on the same trail, great combo of apricot, acidic funk, and some wood
Palate: The body is medium, it gets a little over-carbonated, but has a nice funky dryness
Overall Impression: This one totally worked for me. Sometimes these fruit sours can get way too sweet, but that was not the case here at all. This, and the other Cascade beer I had at the festival, remind me that I need to drink more Cascade beers.

maxwelldeux (3665) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle, 2012 project. Pours a cloudy golden color with a moderate white head that disappears quite quickly. Nose is sour and dry, almost to the point of being a tart champagne, but has a small but noticeable apricot aroma coming off it. Taste is decidedly sour and dry, and will make your mouth pucker; feels very effervescent, too. Really fun drink.

Draught @ Cascade, Portland, OR

Pours clear yellowish golden with a small head. Aroma of tart apricots, wood, wheaty yeastiness and floral notes. Taste is smooth, sourish and tart with some hints of apricot and floral notes. Finish is sourish and tart with some apricot and wood. Perhaps the sourest of the bunch I tried.

b3shine (5427) - Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
750 ml bottle to snifter (2013 Project shared with the Mrs; thanks Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy deep apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells tart and mildly sweet with loads of apricot and some oak as well. Tastes like it smells with notes of lacto and a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. You can almost taste the fuzz on the apricot. Good stuff.

Bottle. Aroma of apricot, citric acid, stone fruit pit, and finishes with a nice peach. Taste is tart with with aromas that come forward of wood, funk, and reenforces the apricot. Dry lingering tart finish.

Bottle received in trade. Thank you nicks6217. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny sour and fruity with crackers apricots, sulphur, hay, dry soil,lemon zest and leather. Taste is very sour with crackers, apricots, pineapple juice, hay, dry soil and sour milk. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, mouth-puckering, slightly burning acidic and light to medium bodied, finish is very sour with crackers, apricots, pineapple juice, mineral, hay and dry soil. Too sour I’m afraid,
