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.

2012- aroma acid, fruit, vinegar. Clear straw/yellow with a white dissipating head leaving no foam. Taste was quite tart and acidic, very dry and delicious

Excellent apricot and tart aroma. Fair size oak comes through on back end. Really good sour tart funk and blended well with the overall apricot flavors.

Thanks to bitbucket tasting. Huge fresh apricot aroma is decadent. The apricot flavors really come out in the taste, along with mild sourness. Fantastic balance and really came together smoothly. 8.35%? Would never know.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2010 GABF 08’: Glorious apricot essence all over this beer, tending to be more like dried apricot than fresh, which is better when you’re looking for a strong apricot flavor. The nose was softly tart and full of apricot and the flavors were chewy apricot beyond recognition. Not sure how their kriek won the award and not this one, the apricot blows the kriek out of the water.

boFNjackson (4186) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle... Poured orange with a white head that stayed with a nice ring around the glass. Aroma of light fruit and tart wine-like characters. Dry palate. Very sweet, and the apricot was just perfect. Very subtle and played off the sour note perfectly.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange amber with a small but lasting white head. Smells tart and oaky with distinct apricot. Tastes the same. Apricot lingers through a dry finish.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Pure, pure aroma of apricots explodes out of the glass. Acidic, but not very funky; more clean fruit. Tartness is medium sour. A delicious expression of the apricot through this beer.

Had this on tap recently at the Raccoon Lodge in Portland, OR. Colour... very cloudy deep orange with little head. Nose... highly acetic and tartaric with loads of dried apricot. Palate... lots of vinegar and quite tart, bitter ’round the edges of my palate, pit-ish, phenolic, woody, sulphitic, and oh so good!

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 bottle from the brewery shared with kylie on orcas isalnd while sitting on lake cascade. everything called cascade in this damn region. pours a hazy orange with pinkish red highlights. frothy dirty white head. aroma of marshmellows, plastic, basement funk. flowers, blueberries. flavor is candied sour apples. tart bretty orange peels and lactic acid. dry. medium body. moderate-heavy tartness. good carbonation. would have guessed 6.5% abv rather than 9. more like sour fruit salad conconction than straight up apricot. not as dry as fou foune, though it might be silly to compare the too. no big complaints. awesome beer.
