3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Backlogged rating, enjoyed during RBSG 2010: Poured a bronze orange hue with golden highlights topped by a thin but lasting head, spotty lace. The aroma has note of apricot flesh, fruit, and pits along with some acidic white grapes and hint of earthy horsey yeast tones. Some pils and crystal malt along with a slight minerally aspect. The taste is quite fruity and not all that sharp, sort of flabby more akin to a fruit beer than a sour ale. The malt needed to be better dealt with as well, slight sugary component. Some oak tannins upon the warming finish. Soft body and a bit sticky. Overall a big disappointment compared to the Cuvee de Jongleur.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[750ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Hazy dark gold with thin lacing. Vinegary aromas rise from the glass. Not much apricot on the aroma, but some comes through on the aftertaste after the acetic sharpness. Highly effervescent, really froths up on the palate like a champagne Ė I can see what they are doing here, but itís really not my thing

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Where the Wild Beers Are. Muddy orange pour. The aroma is apricot (I guess) and sour belt candy. A touch of artificial sweetness. Tastes like the sour crystals off of sour candy. Iím not really getting much of a flavor other than "sour." Itís a bit simplistic, but thatís not to say I didnít enjoy it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
White wine straddles this Barrel-Aged Sour Aleís apricot fruitiness, as a soft prickling slowly but surely introduces a lasting lactic tartness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the misty orange.
-The apricot aroma somehow suggests sweetness.
-Flintstone-like sugary vitamins can be hallucinated, surely a phenolic by-product.
-This is very fruity, complex, wild and engaging. Perhaps not completely mature yet, but it remains a compelling experiment.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2011 Bottle. I believe this is a 2009 bottle. Pours a clear golden honey color with a big fluffy white head that nicely laces as it settles. If memory serves me correctly I donít believe Cascade uses brett but this has an aroma of brett to it with florals and a touch of fruit. I expected this to have a more fruit forward aroma vs. the florals. Light mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. The flavor is brett-like floral with touches of sweetness. The apricot doesnít seem to be as strong as I would have liked and the flavor seems almost watered down. Not bad but I thought this would have been better.
2008 bottle: Poured into a Duvel tulip glass a hazed amber orange color with a big fluffy white head that quickly settles, leaving some lace. Strong aroma of brett floral mixed with sweeet fruit. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Nice flavor of apricot fruit, with very little brett floral taking over the profile. 2008 is much better than the 2009.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lightly hazy orangish pour with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is phenomenal! Aroma starts with some nice dusty yeast, leads to some nectarines, apples and apricots with a nice lactic tartness. Flavor is sweet and sour. Great tart apricot flavor, lemony goodness, yeast, dank flavors...some wet wood. Talk about a drinkable sour...MUST get more. My goodness.

Big bottle from Trade with beerlando. Thanks a lot. The pour is Brilliant. Kys deep orange with a hazy glow and topped with a thick snow white head that stays. The aroma holds Brett and fresh fruit where the apricots are up front , but also fresh grapes and yeast notes. Its fresh but with a nice twist. The taste is sour ina very mild way without any agressivity. Its a long taste with a creant mouthfeel. You hardly sense the alcohol. Dangerous. The finish is pretty anonymous. Very drinkable
