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.

750 ml bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks! Pours a hazy copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is a nice peachy fruity tartness. Fruity sourness prevails throughout. This is real fucken good...

2012 bottle. Cloudy light straw with big foamy white head. Good mouth watering funky aroma, with notes of light fruit, and spent fireworks. Huge... mouth-puckering tartness.... WOW. Medium/light body. The tartness does give away to some nice fruit sweetness at the finish, with the apricot coming out subtly in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is champagne like. This is superb.

I really enjoyed the look of this beer. Poured into an oversized wine glass. Tons of bubbly white head that stayed throughout me drinking. I would get to the bottom of the glass and still have some of that sticky bubbles at the bottom, each new pour brought more beer, and lots more bubbles. A great peachy-orangy-ambery-yellowy color that I found extremely inviting. Aroma was a bit lack-luster: citrusy acidic tartness with nice fresh apricot. Taste was a punch in the mouth sour. I found my mouth watering from the aftertaste. Really dry, super tart, and great balanced fruitiness (apricot/kumquat) with some mild woody-spiciness. This beer literally danced around my tongue and had a nice light body without being watery.

Bottle @ Uiltje bar, medium sample. Hazy golden to orange color, medium off-white frothy head. Lovely aroma of apricot, slight lactose tartness, funk, slight spicy notes. Soft sour in taste, slight dry and sweet. Full bodied. Stunningly good stuff.

Hazy. Mad tart, sour, funk. Oakiness near the finish. a tang of Apricot sweetness mixed in at the end . Bursting with flavor.

2008. Loud forceful pop, yummy apricot, tart orange and lemon aroma. Hazy mustard, creamy white head. Sweet and tart apricot, juicy then dry. Strong tannic oak bite. Flavors ebb and flow from sweet to oak and in between. Glad I have another bottle.

Off yellow pour, hazy with lots of head. Smells of apricot funk with lots of sourness. Very nice balance of the apricot and the sourness. Thanks to the bartender at monks for this one! Shared with james and pat.

shared 750ml bottle. Cascade makes some damn good sours! And this is one of them - Cascade Apricot Ale pours a deep orange color with a thick 2 finger white head (which falls down to a solid 1/4"). The nose is filled with Oak, light apricot and lots of tartness from the lacto. Wonderful nose! Medium tart body with smooth sides and an aggressive front and back. Very carbonated at first... The body is overall pretty sour - with layers of wood, apricot and some yeast. The finish is a very dry tart apricot. Excellent Sour Ale from Cascade. Going to GABF? Hit these guys up - no lines and their sours are amazing!!!

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 Pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma is sour peaches! The taste is so spectacular. Super sour peaches, balanced by a slight sweetness. One of the best sours I think Iíve ever had. Iím a huge fan. This is the first beer Iíve had from this brewery. I had it on tap and in the bottle while in Seattle and I was equally impressed both times. Really good for sour freaks.
