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.

shared 750ml bottle. Cascade makes some damn good sours! And this is one of them - Cascade Apricot Ale pours a deep orange color with a thick 2 finger white head (which falls down to a solid 1/4"). The nose is filled with Oak, light apricot and lots of tartness from the lacto. Wonderful nose! Medium tart body with smooth sides and an aggressive front and back. Very carbonated at first... The body is overall pretty sour - with layers of wood, apricot and some yeast. The finish is a very dry tart apricot. Excellent Sour Ale from Cascade. Going to GABF? Hit these guys up - no lines and their sours are amazing!!!

Bottle shared by notch at SL... Nice fruity (apricot) aroma...duh? Pours a pale yellow color, good head. Taste is nice, sweet apricot, but a sourness to it. Simple but good. Very light and refreshing beer, great for a hot, sticky summer night. Thanks notch...

The aroma is fruity and sour with sweet and medicinal notes. The appearance is cloudy orange with an average head. The taste is like the aroma with a junky garbage finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a beer only a sour beer lover could stand.

Doodler (312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2010
750 ml. Popped open with a shotgun bang and a mild gusher. Beautiful color - creamy gold with a tangy nose, Fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Nicely dry on the front end, a bit of funky apricots and vanilla on the back. A slightly fruity, nicely carbed brewski through and through. Very pleasant.....even my wife liked it. Superb job again by the CB/Raccoon gang....a great summer ale.
