COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This live NW style sour wheat ale is a special single barrel project from the blenders that was barrel aged for six months before aging on 200 pounds of fresh apricots for an additional nine months - 200 pounds of fruit far exceeds our goal of two pounds per gallon by more than 1.5 pounds! Aromas of dusty apricot skins and blossoms are present at the start. Huge, rich, tart apricots cover your palate and lead to a dry fruit finish with a cotton candy note. Close your eyes, it’s like drinking a fresh apricot. This is tarter than the Apricot Blend; this is blender strength!

On tap at the brewpub - Pours yellow / orange with a white head. The aroma has dried apricots, heavy richness, dank sourness and the stones of the fruit - it’s like a bag of dried apricots made extra sour. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with apricots, lactic sourness, pepper, rich nectar and some leather. The finish has citrus, apricots, spice, vanilla and mild alcohol heat. Really nicely done.

On tap at Cascade, from the barrel. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A massive apricot nose, almost pushing toward white wine. The flavor was over the top super sweet, dry, but also tart apricots. Perfumy. Wow. Concentrated apricot. Damn nice. Soft. Good.

Draft at sb. Pours a murky burnished medium amber with golden brown highlights. Dense creamy white head. Huge piercingly tart apricot nose, with intense lemon and white vinegar compounding the sharpness. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sharply piercing tartness on the mid palate, balanced by soft fruity notes for complexity. Great beer for sure.

On tap at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House in Portland, OR. (This was listed as Live Barrel Supracot at the brewery). Pale yellow pour. Aroma is surprisingly flowery with only a hint of fruit and is actually somewhat perfume-like. The flavor however is solid; bright apricot taste with a nice balance of tartness and oak. Not as fruity as Cascade’s Apricot in my opinion but still great.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2012
On tap at the barrel house. Live from the barrel - pours a hazy amber with very little head. Big time apricot aroma and flavor - almost like a jar of fresh jam. Some sweetness and funk - woody and tart.
