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.

Aroma is interesting with apricot and fruit candy. Flavour is rather tart and acidic with lots of lemon and grapefruit. Also some lactic acid tones. So acidic that drinkability suffers. The flavour and aroma are really far from each other on this one.

Jultsu (714) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
75cl pullon pohjat. Utuisen samea väri, ok vaahto joka häipyy nopeaan. Intensiivinen hiilihappoinen hedelmäinen tuoksu. Samettisen kuohuva suutuntuma, kuivan hapokas, hapan kurkussa asti tuntuva jälkimaku. Aika muikean hyvää.

75 cl bottle @ ISKTR V.
Pours pale hazy yellow color with a large head. Very tart on the nose, herbal and yeasty notes, gooseberry bush, some spices and apricot. Apricot, rowan berries, gooseberries, some faint yeast, maybe some acidic notes, wood and earthy funkiness. Tart and fruity, maybe slightly too harsh acidic notes though.

Bottle from the 2010 Project. Aroma is surprisingly apricot forward with some light oak notes. Moderate acidity with some nice, bright citrus notes. Hints of melon with some mandarins and tangerine. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a large, rocky, slightly off-white head that quickly recedes to a thin film that lingers a bit on the edges. No lacing and moderate legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with some tannins from the oak and apricot skins. Moderately strong apricot notes. Some nice citrus notes of tangerine and mandarin with a bit of grass character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a much better beer than I was expecting though the price is still too high. The apricot character is really nice and the citrus notes work well. Some decent tannins with some light grassy notes.

From notes. 08/07. Madison. The pour is a beautiful orangey yellow color with a thin spritzy head and no lace. The head falls off immediately and completely disappears. The aroma is pretty sour. There is a good Brett or lacto character that brings it together nicely. The apricot is pretty reserved here. I guess I was expecting a little more resemblance to Fou Foune. Then again, shame on me. There is a little funk there, but it's a touch disappointing. The flavor is good. There is a nice sour and there is not a whole lot of fruits here. The sour and funkiness are pretty good, but it's just bland for what I was hoping for. The mouth feel is thinner with a lack of carbonation for a watery mouth feel and a lingeringly sour, slightly fruity aftertaste. Not bad, but I was hoping for so much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle big thanks to Andrewje41 for this brew! Pours murky hazy orange hue with a small fizzy soda white head and vigorous carbonation. Nose is big sour apricots, lite woody notes, not all that complex of a nose. Flavors exhibit bigtime sourness and apricots. However, the Apricot sweetness and wood age really does develop this brew into something unique. I must say the palate is very heavily carbontated however, that detracts from the ABV, which is virtually unnoticible. Long finish of apricots, tart sourness, lively oak woody notes and that spritzy carbonation. Cool brew!

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Vintage 2014. Aroma is sour, apricot, funk. Appearance is hazy golden/orange, off-white head. Taste is apricot, sweet then sour. Mouthfeel is biting, harsh carbonation as expected and not great mouthfeel. Overall, not a huge fan of the style so it’s hard to take my word.
