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.

This is a nice fruit shot. It is not terribly complex but solid from top to bottom. It’s good and fruity with a solid apricot note brought out by a bit of sweetness but this is solidly sour beer, bracing but not harsh. It finishes with a lingering tartness and is slightly astringent with a good bit of fruit.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
From the January 2014 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a golden amber color with a medium sized soapy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was musty, dusty, tart and sour with moderate apricot. The flavor was very sour, almost vinegary with notes of cracker, dust, must and vague apricot. Very long sour finish. Medium body. Ok but fairly disappointing.

Thanks to Bytemesis! Bottle pours a hazy lemon yellow with a small fizzy head and little lacing. Aroma is nose tingling with lemon citrus, tart apricot, and oak. Flavor is tart, acidic acid. Tangy goodness.

2012- aroma acid, fruit, vinegar. Clear straw/yellow with a white dissipating head leaving no foam. Taste was quite tart and acidic, very dry and delicious

bytemesis (4599) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch, medium off white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is apricot, pits, skins, dust. Light funky basement aroma. Flavor is fully tart, very light funk, fruity, apricot and other stone fruit notes. Medium plus body, silky mouthfeel. Solid beer.

BVery (7957) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Sampled from a bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Hazy orange pour. Tart, apricot, a little funky. Lighter and bright. Another awesome sour from Cascade.

slowrunner77 (7091) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"this one manages to be a seriously fruity beer (smells like putting your nose in a bag of dried apricots) and a nice sour ale. this would make an amazing summer brew. oaky, quite tart all the way through, with loads of fruit flavor but only a hint of sweetness."

stoutnick (730) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2014
Dirty peach colour, nice fizzy head. Aroma is outstanding - beautiful sweet dried apricots. Wow! Taste is immediately very sherberty with a big fizz, nice sweet apricot vinegary sour. As warms it becomes more sour than fruity. Finish is tangy. Overall, great fruit sour, one of the best I’ve had from the states.

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear golden to light orange color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is dry, tart, oak, citrus, apricot. Flavor packs a punch of sourness, with huge apricot notes as well. Slight oily palate with a strong lingering tartness. Excellent sour!
