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 project. Super sour nose with more funk than expected, slightest hint of fruit. Taste follows the nose almost identically. Not as fruit forward as I expected it to be, definitely sour. Reminds me of a quality gueuze.

skmikeg (1671) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Pours bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits fresh and dried apricots, vinager, light sweet malts, and some wet hay. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry, pretty sour, long, lingering finish. Overall, an outstanding sour ale with some great apricot flavors.

NikkTwist (2546) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Bottom of a keg first tapped at a Cascade event last week. Murky golden orange pour. Just a very thin fizzy white ring. Huge overripe apricot flavor. Very sharply sour (as expected) but much fuller than the bottle. Juicy. Piquant. Gigantic. Notes of bruised peaches, fresh cut hardwood, green apple sour candy, figs, kiwi and thistles. Fantastic!!!

stevoj (3701) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2016
Bottle from Albertsons. Not a big fan of yours, but Cascade is an exception. Hazy golden pour, big fruity nose leads into a taste and experience that tickles the palate at all levels. I don’t even like apricots that much, but this is tasty.

Lilja (2574) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2016
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av aprikos, torkad aprikos, aprikoskärnor, aprikosgodis, jäst med toner av trä och vita vinbär. Frisk, stor syrlighet, lagom sötma, torr, viss strävhet, mycket gott.

ordybill (1225) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Poured from a 22 OZ bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is a light slightly murky orange with a small white head. The aroma is full of apricots and wood. The taste is sour apricots with some oak tossed in. This is an outstanding beer.

eiriko (7) - NORWAY - FEB 26, 2016 does not count
Aroma reminds me heavily of gueuze. Hint of apricot. Brett. Light golden color. Head dissipates fast. Very sour. Heavy apricot flavor. Even though this is the 2013 version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
