This easy drinking NW style sour ale was aged in rum barrels for 20 months with tangerine zest, then blended with our Apricot Ale. Sweet aromas of tangerine and rum are the first thing you notice as you draw your glass near. A quenching sweet citrus, then rum spice take turns dancing on your palate. Rich rum spice and warmth lead to a lingering sweet tangerine finish like warn sand. Most rum beers only go to 10, ours goes to 11!

Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Another corker from Jason, cheers! Murky orange - amber beer, no real head. Light palate, dry and crisp. Minerals and seltzer. Big tangerine sherbet with lesser tangerine peel. Light crisp finish. A really intense fruity number.

25/III/14 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-312) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Oh my god, what’s up with these Cascade fruit beers? Little cloudy dark beige to yellow amber beer, no head. Aroma: bubble gum, peach candy, effervescent vitamin tablets, orange and tangerines, and a sort of fake fruit aroma. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: those effervescent vitamin tablets with an industrial orange flavour, that’s totally what it tastes like. Sourish, bit lemony, fake orange flavour, unpleasant bitterness. Aftertaste: little sour, medicinal bitterness combined with a citric acidity that reminds me of stomach tablets. Man, this is bad. I am the only one who doesn’t like this stuff?

A - pours a nice golden tangerine with no head and no lacing. S - interesting and complex. The standard acetic chemical sour notes mix with a pretty healthy amount of over sweet almost artificial tangerine and lightly spiced barrel notes. Some salty notes. M - nice level of tartness. thicker than expected. Full body. Sweet as hell. T - the taste follows the nose pretty well. Chemical acetic and lemony tartness lead. Over sweet tangerine, orange peel candied orange follow. The end is spiced barrel notes. O - interesting for sure. nice combo of sweet salty thick and tangerine 3.8

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Cask at Cascade Barrel House in Portland, OR on 29 May 2013. Poured a cloudy orange with a dense white head. Big fruity aroma, lots of tangerine and citrus along with some spicy notes. Deep flavour; soft fruit, sticky syrups and a nice balance of warming alcohol. Sourness sets in on the palate, but nicely rounded.

Bottle thanks to Vasili ! Pours a rich copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is inviting with candied orange, stonefruit, sweet caramel some boozy barrel presence. The palate follows the nose with a bit more of a malt profile than expected... however that being said the flavors make sense. Nice spicy orange marmalade, juicy tangerine, soft apricot, there is some booziness but the alcohol is well integrated with the layers of flavor. Really enjoyable with lingering rum soaked fruit.

750ml bottle In a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of citrusy fruits, oak and rum, some spices, a nice sourness, a little vanilla, and more fruits. Flavor the same with a great blend of everything. Average texture. A really cool sour with a nice fruit note.
