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...

Thanks Rian for sharing! Smooth fresh nose. The beer is very sourish-fruity. Very intense sour, the fruity raspberries are there, ver fresh. Intense sour and easy to drink. Smooth and sour together. Very round and nice. Only the apricot-pits are not too obvious. Fresh sourish aftertaste. Intense-smoth, sour, very round and great. Citrus, fresh sour raspberries, intense fruity. Great!

skmikeg (1279) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours bright orange with a thin whitrwhite head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of sour apricot, raspberry, wet hay, oak, rose, almond, and light cherries. Taste is very sour and has similar notes to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy, sour, bone dry, sour, lingering finish. Overall, a another excellent world class sour ale from Cascade that is very drinkable.

RexTalionis (2985) - 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
