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...

Salmoniform (652) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Poured from tap to glass at the brewery. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head that lingered. Aroma is lactic, oak, grapes, red wine, straw. Mouthfeel is great with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tart sourness throughout. Overall this is a very enjoyable brew.

drainpour (6) - Santa Rosa, USA - SEP 9, 2014 does not count
Incredible beer. Bursting with aromas of lacto on apricot upon more lacto. Smooth delicate mouth feel. No trace of alcohol despite its 9.98 abv. Raspberry on the finish, with more tartness lacto and apricot. My hands down absolute favorite cascade sour to date. I bought 5... after the first.

Light amber, some apricot and sugars, sweet but turns tart, depth of orchard fruit, touch of barrel. Yeah.

jredmond (5334) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle courtesy of courtesy of Andrew - huge thanks for this little gem. Pours a deep murky hazed orange body and light white lacing. Aroma is sour raspberries, indoor swimming pool, light musky character and vague vinegar. Thankfully no vinegar in the mouthfeel, notes of cherries, apricot, sour peach, funk, musky character and oak. Awesome.

Poured from the tap. Orangey blonde with minimal white head. Apricot and raspberry come out with mild sour in the background.

Shared at the Swamp Head Batch 600 release. Pours a funky reddish brown color with fluffy white head on top that sticks around a bit for a sour brew. Beautiful aroma of apricots and strawberries, some definite vinegar and acidic notes to go with it. Flavor follows the aroma perfectly with juicy raspberries and tart apricots, and some expected sour vinegar flavors to go along. The body is juicy and finishes dry, with medium carbonation. This is easily the best sour I’ve had from Cascade, who has been a mixed bag for me. My two favorite fruits in a sour come together beautifully here.
