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.

Hazy red chestnut with a small off-white head. Aroma of cherry, dusty cellar, wood and a hint of caramel. Dry and slightly tart flavour with strong dusty character, some cherry, pretty strong alcohol.

trevor211 (1530) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Sampled at SIBF 2011. Pours a transparent honey orange with a small head. *Huge* apricot and madarin notes on the nose. Some funk, but mostly fruit. It has a decent sweetness in the flavor -- this is very dessert-like. Sweet citrus precedes the tartness in the flavor. Really nice and full -- I’m impressed.

2010 vintage from the cask at the barrel house in Portland - Light wood and bruised apricot in the faint nose. Tart and juicy in the mouth with a very pulpy apricot flavour and a dry-mouth, floury finish.

2009 vintage that I have been cellaring. Pours a slightly burnt orange with thick white head, very little lacing. Aroma has me excited with funk, apricots, cherries, and dried fruits. I have high hopes for this one, flavor.....high carbonation, drinks almost champagne-like, apricots shine through, nice sour kick, slight sweetness and a hint of oak. Very nice brew that I would always welcome.

2008 bottling that I’ve been cellaring. It started to leak (stored sideways) so I thought I’ve finally drink it.. been wanting to anyways. Sour aroma with some apricot coming though. Pours a hazy apricot color (surprise?) with lots of bubbles and a quickly receeding off-white head. Very tart and lots of great apricot showing through.

On tap at Raccoon Lodge with Jeff. Pours a hazy orange/gold with whiteish foam. Smells tart of apricots. Tastes tart, sweet and sour of apricots and the sensations match up with a tart apricot perfectly.

Koelschtrinker (15589) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Ausgewogen säuerlicher Antrunk, noch früh wird das Bier in Teilen penetrant. Die Grundsäure ist allerdings angenehm, die vorhandene Fruchtigkeit reicht nur bis in den Mittelteil und wird dann weitestgehend übersehen. Auch die vorhandene Süße reicht nur bis dorthin, danach dominiert die Säure eindeutig. Essignoten spielen im Abgang mit und halten sich im Nachgeschmack zumindest. Nettes Bier, das aber zumindest im hinteren Teil etwas unwirsch wirkt. Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock! 11/12/10/9/13/12

Bottle. Burnt orange our with a big white head. All kinds of carbonation. Aromas of white fruits. Effervescent with apricot, white grape, and almost champaign like flavors. Not quite as good as the Kriek or Vlad, but still very nice...

2009 vintage. 750 ml bottle purchased a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($18.99). Pours an interesting color of burnt orange with some red. The foam started overflowing the bottle after I opened it, but when poured the two fingers of beige head quickly dissipates to nothing. Aroma is full of tart apricots; also sweet flowers (honeysuckle), perfume, and quite a bit of funk. Flavor again of big tart apricots, acidic funk, and Pinkberry-type tart yogurt. Sour but with some hints of sweetness that balance it well, making it quiet drinkable. Nicely done fruity American sour, though it is quite expensive. (212, 553)

750ml bottle I picked up on my trip to NY last summer. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Aromas of apricots, good amount of tartness, and some malts. Flavor is fruity and pretty tart with a ton of apricot and a little sweetness. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation. Very nice sour.
