750ml bottle from Julioís. 2009 bottling.
Appearance : Clear amber with a medium head.
Aroma : Great sourness and tartness with nice dry apricots. Light barnyard. Light tropical fruits. Awesome nose.
Taste : Awesome sourness with nice apricots. Light tropical fruits. Finish has a great tartness with great fruity apricots.
Overall : Wow this is very good. Had this twice in 2 weeks and I was amazed both times. For my taste, this is much better then their kriek or the sang royal. The Vine eas better though. The fruits were very nice with a great tartness. Not too sour. Enjoyable light barnyard profile, could be funkier of course. Great summer drink.

The beer pours a honey gold, apricot?, with nice carbonation. Light white, rises about three fingers and is gone right away. The aroma is very strong tons of a sweet apricot. Its almost like honey, not a lot of tart here at all. The epitome of a fruit beer. The taste is a little let down to me. I was expecting something that was a really nice sweet, instead its a weird carbonated juice. There is some light apricot and a hint of a sour finish, but otherwise disappointing. A very light feel, easy to drink but kinda blah that wouldnít make me want to drink much.

Reviewed from notes. Iíve had quite a few bottles of this now and itís certainly one of my favorite American fruited sours. Pours a nice pale apricot color with a bit of a white head and some lacing. The nose is really quite tart with lactic sourness and a good dose of apricot and peach flavors. Some light green apple as well. The taste brings in a bit of oak and a really nice sour to fruit ratio. The mouthfeel and drinkability are both out of this world, as the fruit and sourness levels combine quite well. This is just short of the level where the sourness begins to affect drinkability. My favorite of their sours to date. Iím very, very glad they ship this out to Philly.

Bottle pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma shows notes of tart apricot, peach, oak, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional earthy notes as well as lemon and some light vinegar. Fruity with moderate acidity.

Nice fruity apricot nose, medium sourness in the flavor that is well complemented by the fruit.

Pours medium golden with a large off white head. Tart apricots, wood and some malt sweetness in the nose, with more tartness and a bit of funk in the flavor. Lively on the palate with a decent woody finish.

Bottle shared by Eric: Pours a clear deep golden with a pillowy froth of white head. Has a floral apricot nose with some tartness and pale malty sweetness. Starts with a light malty sweetness and good fruity complexity. True to style and quite drinkable. Should age well.

750 ml. bottle from Malt and Vine. This is an í09 bottle. Corked and caged. What else can I say aboot this beer? It was a bit of a gusher, at first, but no worries; everything is under control. It has a nice translucent orange appearance, with a hint of brown mixed in there, as well. Lots of apricot on the nose, with a bit of a sour aroma to back it all up. This has a very nice sour apricot aroma to it. The oak doesnít come out whatsoever, but the important thing that Iím looking for is the sour. This has a nice sourness at first that jumps all over your taste buds. The sour eventually fades away and leaves a nice fruity apricot flavor in your mouth. I canít say that these Cascade sour beers are very nuanced, but they are awesome sours. Iím getting a little oak in this actually. I think the fact that this bottle is a wee-bit older has helped it a bit. Nice sour start leads to a nice deep fruit flavor. This beer is delicious. My bottle says 9% ABV, so Iíll start feeling this beer in a few minutes.
