4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle mail ordered from the brewery. Pours a golden orange, lightly hazy, lively carbonation and decent body. Aromas are deep sour apricots, a nice funkiness, caramel malts underneath but very nice tart apricot and light funkiness that dominate the nose. Heaven. Initial is apricot, sour and tart with a good kick, underlying funkiness, oaky dryness, a bit of barnyard funkiness, lively carbonation. The body is sufficient, the tart and sourness is spot on for a more sessionable sour. Good oak and dryness, sweetness is there, but falls back substantially to let the fruit, sour, and barrel take the lead. This is a lively brew, good sourness, light sweetness, dry and oaky sweetness. Aftertaste of fresh apricots, a bit of warmth. Coats the mouth. Finish lingers on. Wonderful.

In short: An intense sour ale meets a sweet fruit ale (apricots). Tasty interesting result.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh soon after purchase. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Cloudy dark golden body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is intensely apricot with a nice barnyard character in the back. Taste is rather straightforward but quite effective. The beer is sour, very sour. Medium acidic level. Somewhat sweet, a little too much so me, I prefer dryer sour ales. Apricots and more apricots. The apricots work well here but I was getting the sensation of a gueuze-ish non-fruity sour ale with added fresh apricots. Like if it was an intense sour ale blended with a sweet apricots fruit ale instead of being one unified beer. And thanks to people like me Cascade have all the fruits they need to experiment and make those kick-ass beers.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 750mL Bottle. Very nice perfumed dried apricot, fresh apricot juice, and some fleshy fresh fruit. Poured a very clear peachy-colored golden, extremely crystal clear, with a just off-white head. Rocky. Foamy, explosive strong citric acid juice. Vibrant and acidicly heavy. Sweetness balanced with alcohol and acid. Nice fruit character. Clean acids. I might enjoy some more softness and funk. Otherwise, very decent.

Nose was tart with nice vinegar notes.
Poured a lite orange with brown tint capped with a very small head.
Highly carbonated, tart, nice apricot flavors without being too earthy, nice and fruity and dry with a slightly sweet finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml shared by my stepfather on a visit a few months back - thanks, Peter! Never had the base tripel. I was immediately impressed by the full, very carbonated pour. A deep, slightly dank orange body - slight sediment making it pretty thick - and a surprisingly thick and creamy head. Soft apricot notes go so well in the nose, nicely complementing the wood character. Wood is in the lead in the flavor, but only until the beer settles and warms a bit. Then it’s a really lovely Flanders with perhaps slightly too prickly carbonation. Lively, refreshing, and nicely complex.

Bottle. Amber-brown beer with an off-white head. Tart, light musty, apricot aroma. Apricot flavor with tart/sour notes (decent acetic backing), light earthiness, light malt, and dried apricot. Medium bodied. Apricot lingers with sour notes and light malt. Nice acetic/fruit balance.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy, swampy sunset orange with a fluffy off white head that left some spotty lacing. Nose was mostly sweet sweet and tart apricots with some citrus and light vinegar. Sweet flavor with apricots being dominant and hints of sweet oak that showed in the background. Brew finishes with a mixture of tartness and semi sweet. I like how Cascade doesn’t try to do too much with their sours, always very drinkable.
