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.

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.

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.

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.
