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.

Pours a copper orange color with a thin white head and a decent lace left behind. The nose is overly sweet and simple seeming a touch artificial. Candied sugars and spearamint tickle the nose as appricots take over and dominate. The taste is sugary and minty, lots of appricot roll over the tongue. Very little integration as the mint, sugars, and fruit don’t seem to have a defined roll. This is overly sweet with a creamy syrupy feel, prickly carbonation in the back, and a touch wet and oily.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Murky medium orange body, just a few cream-colored bubbles at the surface. Beautiful apricot nose, funky, earthy and fleshy with bitter pit too. Pulpy, tart apricot puree body, sour, sharp, tart, and funky. The sour bite accentuates the apricot. Very nice.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2011
2009 vintage, watch for gushing. Rusty golden color, darker belgian. Aromas are faint apricot, some sweeter sugar notes. Palate right off the palate is sour up front, but the apricot fruit flavor is not overpowering, not cloying or sweet, a bit big in the finish. The sour edge goes down as you continue to sip, and more of the apricot shines through. Very full bodied. I think however is that this could use more time to get even better.

On tap at Cascade Tasting Room with mcberko. Pours a clear golden yellow/light orange. Aroma of apricot, with slight tartness. Flavour of sour apricots, tart, chardonnay, orange zest, and some soap. Dry, tart, really nice.

mcberko (12897) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at Cascade Tasting Room, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with minimal head. Aroma of pretty much only apricot and some tartness. Flavour is immensely complex -- where to start -- apricot, tangerine peel, chardonnay, lemon zest and a soapy quality. Finishes dry, zesty and soapy. Very intriguing.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2011
Pours a hazy and copper beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is flowers, the, peach, malt and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose with additional acidity. The palate is dry and acidic. Overall a good beer.

dagimp (935) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2011
From a corked and caged bottle picked up at the brewery. IIRC, this is an ’09 project. Pours into a brandy snifter with fizzy white head but little to no lacing. Awesome aroma of apricots and lemon... simply fantastic. Mouthfeel is over carbonated at first but quickly gets down to a manageable level. I was expecting this to be mouth-numbingly sour like the most recent kriek was, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t at all. It was tart with plenty of apricot flavor. In fact, that’s pretty much the taste to it. Tart with plenty of apricot and a good dose of funk. Extremely good beer. I would be happy to buy it again if the brewery wasn’t 3000 miles away from me. Good reason to visit the relatives! Hey, they love good beer too!

On tap at Stone Sour Fest. From notes. Pours a nice orange color with off white head. Aroma of sour and some nice apricot notes. Taste is outstanding with nice amount of apricot at the front with a very mouth puckering sour at the end. Overall a great sour if you like apricot and a nice pucker.
