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.

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.

(750ml bottle). Pours cloudy orange/apricot color with nice off-white head. Aroma is funky, ripe apricot, and so delicious. Taste is a sour, but not overly sour. There is the sweetness of the apricot there also. Medium bodied with a smooth finish. The carbonation is prickly. If you like sours and apricot, then you should like this beer. Itís yummy.

Appearance: apricot and peach hues with a slight haze and creamsicle head. Cork popped loud and clear with a slow rise in bubbles which threatened to overflow before reaching my glass; not a gusher though. Fades in bubbles and pockmarks and lace. Swirls thicker along sides.
Nose: tart and meaty apricots and peaches. Tinge of must in the back, a mťlange of fruit pits, leather, old dusty books. Woolen blankets and afghans. Dried grass in the back. Marmalade and cobbler under and along the edges. Works together well and separate.
Palate: soft and frothy with a light lively springtime essence. Tartness tickles top of tongue, fading into the middle where she is sweet with apricots and peaches, then the tartness creeps back into the finish along with some nice tannic bitterness. Apricot and peach skins. Marmalade and sourdough, softly juicy n chewy. A bit fizzy, an attribute of her youth. Peaches and tart cream. Playful all around; lovely.
Final Thoughts: awesome, and having since had a bottle not quite as young, the carbonation settles down, the flavors melt together even more, and beervana was mine once more. Cascade may not be in Belgium but they have a bit of Belgium in them.

Bottle shared by CaseyK...thanks Casey! - Pours hazy light orange with a bubbly off-white head. Nose is incredible--apricot jam mixed with dried apricot. Lightly sweet and something I could smell all day. Tastes smooth and sweet, citrus and apricot with some lactose and a yeasty malty backbone. Not terribly tart, but wonderful. Creamy and smooth, pretty full-bodied, and just a wonderful beer.
