COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

2012 bottle. Slightly hazy deep gold with a massive white head. Big yoghurt and meaty apricot on the nose. A bit of manure and bitingly tart unripe fruit. Strong lactic sourness. Very aggressive, not for the faint of heart. The rich, meaty apricot flavor balances it out somewhat. Light body, zippy carbonation. Pleasant, but I couldn’t take down a whole 750 of this by myself.

Thanks! Sampled bottle @ ZBF 2014. Hazy citrus, only some bubbles on the side. Nose is lots & lots of dried apricots, very fruity and juicy, lovely, slight lactic feel, touch wood. Taste is same, oodles of apricots, slightly lactic, touch apple and wood, citrus, lemon acidic sour in the finish. Very light and easy to drink. Pure apricot goodness.

Bottle sample. Pours light yellow with a steady head. Aroma of super fresh peach, apricot, apple notes, citrus. Light body, nice fruit tart, but a bit high on the acidity.

Draft. This is an incredible beer. A lot of lemon, orange, and apricot on the nose. Initially sweet, but a long, very sour finish. Apricot sneaks in at the end. Tartness lingers forever. Love this.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
2011 bottle. Pours a hazy orange, little head and moderate spotty lacing. Aromas of apricot/peach/tangerine. Very fruity nose. Taste follows the nose with a medium to heavy body. Almost feels like drinking juice, aside from some nice tartness and funk. Pretty slick and lingering finish with some acidity. Nice fruited sour!

DrSilverworm (6027) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Tasted at a bottle share in a hotel room after the most recent Jackie-O’s bottle release. Hazy peach orange yellow color. No head or lace. Awesome apricot, bigger tart taste. Moderate to bigger sweet, too. Bigger body. Lightly slick, lighter, smooth carbonation. Awesome amount of sour. Met my expectations.

Cloudy golden color. Big white bubbles that fall fast. Slight tire aroma with some fruit notes and funk. Taste is the same rubbery note with a bit of vomit.

Lukaduke (2065) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottled shared thanks to JBPortland. Pours a slighty hazy yellow golden color with a finger of gaseous bubbles. The nose is amazing... so much juicy apricot, tangerine, citrus and some underlying funk. Palate follows with great apricot fruit, some lactic tartness, vanilla, citrus and musty funk. A touch of vinegar on the finish but a solid apricot offering without a doubt !
