3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy tan color with a nice head. Smells of apricots, sour apple and citrus. Taste of apricots, orange and spice. Really good sour beer. I liked this better then the cherry. Not sure if Iím a huge fan of the fruity apricot addition...save that fr the lambics. Overall, another one well done by Cascade.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Very attractive beer, pouring a slightly hazed and glowing orange. Fizzy head that dissipates. The nose is absolutely fantastic. Notes of peach candy, dried apricots, wheat bread, candy lemon drops and a hint of ginger? Like fantastic peach preserves. On taste, strong prominent note of fresh apricot. The acidity is super clean and fresh. No weird musty or mildewy notes that you can get out of a lot of sours. Absolutely clean and fantastic. Nice lemon drop and candied apricot. Finish is super dry. This is world class stuff. The acidity is not over the top, more of a Brett character than bacteria. Awesome.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a clear bright dark yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of sour notes with light acidic notes with some light tart apricot notes. Taste is also a very nice mix between some light acidic notes with some tart and sour notes with lightly sweet notes of apricot. No notes of oak and apricot notes are very subtle. Very nice beer and drinkability is quite high with alcohol being well hidden.

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.
