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...

This a 2014 bottle and it’s still pretty sour and funky. Raspberries barely come through.

Cybercat (4855) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Pours hazy grapefruit with a thin eggshell head. Aroma features citrus and fresh malt notes. Sharply sour flavor delivers grapefruit and woody tones. Body and fizz are both good. Ride the cascade!

A 750ml corked and caged bottle from 2014 project, poured into a To Řl teku glass. It poured a slightly hazy strawberry red colour with a half finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aromas were funky, oak, raspberries, lemon and a hint of apricot. Tastes sour, tart, oak, raspberry and strawberry. Dry, medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall some very nice funk, easy to drink and definitely does not feel like 9.29% abv. I did not know what apricot noyaux was but apparently it is from apricot kernels. I guess this explained the lack of apricot I was expecting in the taste.
