4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 Project, 7.76% abv.
It pours a hazy orange..apricot colour with a huge head of billowy foam. The tip of the foam looked so inviting so I tongued it. Hehe...sour apricot. Who’d have thunk. Oh, and there’s some good lacing left behind as the foam shrinks slowly.
The smell: fruity tartness, big, oakiness medium, vanilla, hints. I can’t wait to take my first "official" sip.
Ahh...sour apricot is so delicious up front and in the finish. Just the right amount of oak and light vanilla notes rounding off this most excellent brew.
The second pour done and it’s a more than hazy. The foam was also easier to deal with, about a finger’s worth. The sourness never goes over the top so this, I think, would be a great beer to share with someone newish to the style. I also like how the abv is approachable; some slight warming but it doesn’t hurt the drinkability at all.
I wish this came in smaller packages so I wouldn’t have to finish it in one go. I’ll be sad when it’s gone.
Medium bodied, medium carbonation, excellent mouthfeel.
Clearly, another great offering from the gang at Cascade!

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.

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...
