4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Cascade charges a lot for their beers. Despite this, I think they are the best brewery in Portland. This should say a lot for their beer. 8 ounce little glass from the brewery for six bucks, but I’d still say it’s a bargain. I’d rather have a tiny bit of this very beautifully crafted beer than a bunch of rounds of cheaper IPAs or stouts. The body is very well balanced and the smell is deliciously sour with a trickle of apricots to seal the deal. Great stuff.

Bottle: The aroma is heavy sour lemon and moderate apricot. It pours a hazy amber with a two finger white head. The flavor starts with a very quick yeastiness. The finish has heavy lemon sourness and light-moderate apricot. Overall, not mouth puckering, but pretty much the perfect amount of sourness.
