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.

2011. Hazy orange with a clean white head. Lots of citrus aromas, lemon; clean sour; light funk. Apricots hide in the finish, tartness dominates the palate with a biting sour character that sits at the back corners of your tongue. Light body with a mouth-watering finish and medium carbonation. Light but complex sour notes make this a great American sour. Worth seeking out to try, grab a bottle to age.

mansquito (3962) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2015
The Sampler, NYC bottle: pours orange with white head. Aroma is apricot, brett and a good bunch of it, and vinegar. Taste is apricot at first but the sourness takes over. Brett is real prominent at the finish. Quite good. Very sour.

rosenbergh (8245) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Draught at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Portland, OR. Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. Dryness, fruits, sourness and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is super sour and tart... I don't know if there's some apricot notes or not, it's just pure sourness... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
