Pours deep golden with nice white head, aroma is apricot, apple, and some acidic tannins. Taste up front is sweet and slightly tart apricot, leading into a nice sour middle with taste of sour apples, and a dry finish. Excellent sour brew, apricot works well with the sour to create a nice balanced brew.

Pours a cloudy orangey golden color with a thin white head. Solid aroma of apricots, wood, mild sweetness and sourness. Good flavor of apricots, wood, sourness and mild sweetness, the flavor feels less intense than the aroma. Yet another solid offering from Cascade!

750 from Bruisin Ales. Fantastic lambic aroma. Nice orange body. Taste is slightly fruity and wine like with solid lambic tones. Fantastic. Well done sour.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is ceadr-aged apricot, sweet orange, barnyard floor, and hay-infused strawberries. Flavor is a sour rush of apricot soaked in cedar and left in a barn near a horse blanket. Simple, yet complex. The flavors wash over the tongue like a steady rain. Thanks for the recommendation on this one! Now, send more.

75cl bottle. Clear orange color with a small white head. Intense dried apricot aroma with a sour lacto tinge. Sweet apricot flavor like apricot jam but also very acidic. The bright apricot flavor is so intense that you really don’t notice the high acidity until a little way in. Interesting stuff and quite enjoyable. A great fruit beer but not so much a sour, in that the fruit really is the dominating character, with the acidity supporting it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 Hazy dark peach colored pour, nice white frothy head. Aroma is full of funk, apricot, and delicious yeast. Flavor is comparable to the nose, with excellent nectar fruit character. Very solid sour ale.
Re-Rate 4/7/14- So much more incredible tang than I remember. What a treat. I want this more often. Upping my rating. Original rating 4.0.

Pours a light, shimmering copper color with a light-tan head. Aroma is vivid, sweet, dried apricots. Pretty cut and dry there. Flavor is also apricot-dominated, with a bit of unripeness and a somewhat solvent acidity. Sweet at first but after the palate calibrates, the sharp tartness attacks the corners of the palate. Not terribly sour. Pretty good, the fruit is really bright and fresh-tasting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle poured into stemmed snifter glass. Pours a peachy yellow with a bit of haze and yeast sediment. Aroma is of brett wit a hint of sweet fruits, apricots. Mouth feel is full with good carbo. Taste is sweet and sour, really makes your mouth pucker. The apricot is not as prominent at cooler temps but comes out as the beers warms. Great sour ale. 8.5% hidden very well

2009 bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet apricots, peach, sweet tart candies, light funk, lactic acid. Flavor is very sweet and tart (like the candies) with some sour apricot. The sour apricot really comes out in the finish. Overall, very drinkable and tasty, quite tart. Perhaps not as fruity as I would have hoped but one of the better fruity sour ales out there.
