Draft at barrelhouse. Faint fruity nose. Face puckering sour. Tart, drying acidic finish. Not much apricot flavor, but awesomely sour. Just the way I like them.

Bottle of the 2011. Hazy pale orange with a good pale head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is apricot, sour funk, lemon zest, coriander. Very tart on the palate with some sweetness that comes in later, fruity finish. Taste is apricots, sour peach candy, dried apricots, citrus peel, cider vinegar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 2011 bottle.
A - pours hazy apricot straw with almost no head that leaves a little white ring. S - sour! Lacto something fierce (apparently much like perm chemicals according to my girlfriend). Some hints of apricot, sweet tarts and very musty. M - tart! Ok, very sour. Lactic burn. Medium body, average plus palate. High vibrant carb. Lightly salty. T - taste is much better than the aroma. Lacto, lemon juice, and must dominate with white Wine notes, dried apricots and oaky barrel notes quietly on the back.
O - good but very very sour with a salty tinge, like and aggressive gose. 3.8

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap, poured in to a snifter. Aroma of apricot carries from a foot away from the glass; less apricot, more funk and sourness as you bring it closer to the nose. Quite sour, vinegar, apricot, lemon somewhat of an earthy/wild berry flavor. Medium body, leaves mouth tingling and only slightly dry. Overall a solid NW sour and one I’ll drink again.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured a 750 ML bottle of this into my 12oz Goose Island Tulip. Thanks for the brew Dan! 2011 Project Vintage.
Aroma- Big fruit and musky sour aroma. Hits with a hint of apricot in the deep background if you search.
Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that has average head retention. Has a deep reddish-orange glowing color. Leaves a few suds behind.
Flavor- Sour huge with a tart fruit flavor. Apricot is in the background again but after each drink, this character becomes more definite.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Sour Apricot flavors from beginning to end and nice pucker at the finish.
Overall Impression- Haven’t done a review in a while so when I popped this one, thought it would be a good one to start back on! Super sour and has a great apricot background. Highly Recommend this one and wouldn’t mind picking up another one of these in the near future! Trade anyone?

Bottle thanks to Jeff. This actually tied scores with Cantillon FouFOune. Aroma is very minimal giving off a slight apricot smell. Pours peach colored with a clearish body and small head. Taste is amazing with tart apricot up front. Great notes of oak and a band aid funk follow with a puckering apricot throughout. Much more intense than the cantillon and an easy favorite. Will have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep gold, hints of amber, bright. Thin ring of white, coarse, heavy head. Aroma is straight-up sour, fairly intense. Body feels medium due to carbonation being on the lighter side (maybe?). Flavor is a burst of sour with apricot notes coming out after a second and lingering in a complex with some light nutty oak. Very good, like most Cascade brews, but not great (as their Sang beers are). Probably not worth 20$ a bottle, better to try their other beers first.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Barrel House. Slightly cloudy orange-amber color with a medium thin white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of fresh apricot, yeast and citrus. Medium-bodied with flavors of apricots, earthy yeast and wheat. The finish is lightly sour with an apricot and citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.
