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.

Ontape (297) - Valley Village, California, USA - AUG 25, 2014
2012 bottle. Pours an apricot-tinged gold, shiny and beautiful. Big sour apricot nose with barrel and bugs. Taste is powerfully sour from the jump, apricot washes it out to some degree but this is not a polite beer. I love it.

At Cascade brewpub wih Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. Pours orange hazy with layer of white head. Aroma is light melon, cantellop. Taste is nice apricot, light Mellon, medium-heavy acidity, hint if bandaid but not bad. Finish is lingering acidity with more light fruits. Not very complex, kind if one note, which is good, but a little heavy on acidity.

vyvvy (3989) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is ultra-fleshy apricots, richness, dried fruit and light sourness. It has a medium body with lots of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with apricots, spice, mild sourness, pepper and hints of oak. The finish has lots of spice, fresh apricots and hint of bugginess. Great fruited sour ale.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Murky orange in colour with a thin off-white head, light lacing. The aroma has lots of apricots, pears and tropical fruits. The flavour is of apricots, tropical fruits and candy. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sweet with lots more apricots. Very nice stuff, sour and funky.

750ml bottle opened in March 2010.
