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.

Aroma: Tartness wafts through nostrils with a hint of burnt caramel. Appearance: Pale copper with thick, creamy white head. Nice retention and beautiful lacing structure to foam. Taste: An excellent balance of bready sourdough like malt with hints of apricot and earth fruits, finished with a nice tartness that gives it a fantastically subtle yet complex profile. Palate: Nicely carbonated with appropriate viscosity. Overall: Though many prefer the flanders cherry sour... I think this beer is every bit its peer (if not better). Simply put, one of my new favorites

shared 750ml bottle. Cascade makes some damn good sours! And this is one of them - Cascade Apricot Ale pours a deep orange color with a thick 2 finger white head (which falls down to a solid 1/4"). The nose is filled with Oak, light apricot and lots of tartness from the lacto. Wonderful nose! Medium tart body with smooth sides and an aggressive front and back. Very carbonated at first... The body is overall pretty sour - with layers of wood, apricot and some yeast. The finish is a very dry tart apricot. Excellent Sour Ale from Cascade. Going to GABF? Hit these guys up - no lines and their sours are amazing!!!

Bottle shared by notch at SL... Nice fruity (apricot) aroma...duh? Pours a pale yellow color, good head. Taste is nice, sweet apricot, but a sourness to it. Simple but good. Very light and refreshing beer, great for a hot, sticky summer night. Thanks notch...

nick76 (4312) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2010
The aroma is fruity and sour with sweet and medicinal notes. The appearance is cloudy orange with an average head. The taste is like the aroma with a junky garbage finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a beer only a sour beer lover could stand.
