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.

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 26, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2015 Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is loads of funky, rotten attic bones. Taste is citric acid, atomic warheads, dry fruit skins, fruit pits, lemons. Extremely astringent, pulls at your teeth. Very little apricot coming through. Amazing aroma, disappointing taste.

jc1762 (386) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2015
Poured into a plastic cup showing cloudy yellow with sparse white foam. The nose show strong notes of juicy and tart apricot. The palate shows moderate carbonation, full bodied, juicy fruit forwardness, very slightly over-tart but flavors and clean with a good presence of fruit on the finish and the linger.

Vestergaard (1147) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle shared in the line for Blåbær Release 2015. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very funky, lactic, lots of nice apricot, seems very sour! And so it is. Taste is sour, lactic, slight yoghurt, spicy, peppery, fruity and citric fruity. Crisp to burning sour body and high carbonation.

Watering Hole Cascade event. Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Apricot nose with some persimmon and lemon juice. Quite acidic on the palate and I really enjoy sour beers. Lots of white grapefruit and lemon on the finish. Can’t really taste the apricots as the acidity is quite high, but still enjoyable. Probably the most acidic beer I’ve had at this point.

Sample @ home
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.
