Bottle. Cloudy burnt orange pour with an off white head. Delicious grilled apricot aromas. Acidic and tart but not overly so with raspberry, apricot, and stone fruit highlights. Good body with perfect carbonation and balance. Bravo. The boys at Cascade never disappoint...

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange in color with a whitish head. Funky fruityness, bit of sweet almonds, tart raspberries and citrus notes in aroma. Really refreshing vibes from the start here. Apricot and wooden barrel notes later on. Sour notes upfront tastewise, fruity apricot and funkyness too. Refreshing one. Citrus, tartness and wooden notes in the end.

Draft pour at the Sixgill. Cascade brewery night. Pours a bright orange copper color with almost no head. Fresh orange, apricot, and apple aroma. Flavor is juicy, and wonderfully sour. Fresh apricot, orange, and mixed berry holds on forever. love the lingering tartness to it. Another great addition to an already outstanding lineup from these guys. Wonder what’s next.

Draught at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Portland, OR. 2013 vintage. Sourness, mild tartness, funky notes and moderate sweetness in an intriguing aroma. The flavour is berries, dryness, sourness, mild funk and mild vinous notes. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hoprider (144) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2015
Slight hazy orange pour. The nose is very tart with lots of abricots but in a fresh fou foune type of way.. Other stuff going on but cant/wont pull it apart. The taste is somewhat like a mixture between a very fresf fou foune and a barrel soaked 50n4e if you see what I mean. So big on abricots and big on sweet barrel notes. The mouthfeel is fuller though and maybe slightly less refined..? The raspberries aren’t coming through on the palate much but the flavours are about as complex as I’ve seen in a sour. Lots going on. One thing I could put my finger on is the heavy abv.. It kinda comes through a lot I think. So this is no lightweight... Cascade is definitely contending with the big boys with this awsome expression. Impressed!

bytemesis (4267) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear burnt umber, small off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a ring with some lacing. Aroma is oaky, apricot skins and stems, a touch of raspberry present, a bit of funkiness, and a slight touch of acetone. Flavor is fully tart, very light funk, lots of oak and apricot, raspberries come through once my palate has adjusted to the bruising sourness. Medium body, low carbonation. A bit hot maybe? Otherwise a really sound beer.

Poured a light orange color with aromas of peach, wet wood, light funk and some apricots. Flavors were a mixture of jams with some sour notes, not over the top sour, but enough to say hello. Very enjoyable beer from Cascade.

April First Tuesday Libertine Bottle Share. Wow! This one caught me off guard. Pours a light orange to yellow with medium white head. Aroma is apricot and peach through and through. Taste is a mild/medium sour which is nice from Cascade as they are usually puckeringly sour. The fruit then goes to work with the stone fruit coming in first and the raspberry then coming in near the middle and finish. Light sweetness but it works so well. Probably my favorite Cascade ever.
