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.

Benzai (9575) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle @ ZZT XI. Hazy almost opaque yellow color, average sized white to off-white head. Aroma is sourness, yellow fruits, apricot indeed. Taste is very sour, apricot, sour yellow fruits. Lingering sourness, lightly dry, sour fruitpeel. I must admit, one or two years ago, I would have rated this as dreadful or undrinkable. Guess this it what happens to you when you gain experience. Do I love it? No, not this one. Do I think it’s sour? Yes, very. But I can drink it and I like it, although I must admit a 75 cl bottle would probably be too much.
