poisoneddwarf (2493) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - NOV 13, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle. 2011 Project, 7.76% ABV. Pours cloudy orange with a medium off-white head that falls in about a minute into a skiff of foam. Aroma is full of apricot, dusty brett, Band-Aid. Taste is mouth-puckering sour, acidic, apricoty; finishes dry. Carbonation is pretty high, full-bodied. Excellent.

2011 project. Super sour nose with more funk than expected, slightest hint of fruit. Taste follows the nose almost identically. Not as fruit forward as I expected it to be, definitely sour. Reminds me of a quality gueuze.

johnnnniee (4177) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2012
2009 bottling Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of tart pitted fruit with a solid shot of funk. The nose is full of citrus and lactic aromas. The flavor is quite tart and acidic. A solid shot of lemons and sweet tarts with some light tart fruit, a hint of alcohol and a sneaky bit of oak and vanilla. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart lactic bubbly mouthfeel. This is a really nice sour ale, I really enjoyed this on the night before hurricane Sandy.

Bill Becker (970) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 30, 2012
2011 Project, 7.76% abv. It pours a hazy orange..apricot colour with a huge head of billowy foam. The tip of the foam looked so inviting so I tongued it. Hehe...sour apricot. Whod have thunk. Oh, and theres some good lacing left behind as the foam shrinks slowly. The smell: fruity tartness, big, oakiness medium, vanilla, hints. I cant wait to take my first "official" sip. Ahh...sour apricot is so delicious up front and in the finish. Just the right amount of oak and light vanilla notes rounding off this most excellent brew. The second pour done and its a more than hazy. The foam was also easier to deal with, about a fingers worth. The sourness never goes over the top so this, I think, would be a great beer to share with someone newish to the style. I also like how the abv is approachable; some slight warming but it doesnt hurt the drinkability at all. I wish this came in smaller packages so I wouldnt have to finish it in one go. Ill be sad when its gone. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, excellent mouthfeel. Clearly, another great offering from the gang at Cascade!

DuffMan (10139) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
On tap @ the brewpub in Portland. Hazy bright orange, small white head. Yoghurty sour aroma, with less definable fruit than the kriek, but more funk. The palate expresses the unripened stonefruits character a little more than the nose. If anything, the fruit here rounds out the palate a little, lending drinkability to what would otherwise be quite an acidic beer. Lots of barnyard funk, some oaky notes, light leathery dryness. Beautiful!

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 Pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma is sour peaches! The taste is so spectacular. Super sour peaches, balanced by a slight sweetness. One of the best sours I think Ive ever had. Im a huge fan. This is the first beer Ive had from this brewery. I had it on tap and in the bottle while in Seattle and I was equally impressed both times. Really good for sour freaks.

michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Light golden pour, moderate disappearing head, sour, acidic, vinegar aroma. I do not get much apricot in the aroma, unfortunately. Flavor is primarily intense sour. If the apricot is there, its so buried in the background that I dont drink this and think, "apricot". Like all the sours Ive had from this brewer, the flavor it there from the start and lingers well through the finish; I love it. I can almost chew this beer, its so tasty. So while this doesnt come off as apricot to me, I still like it. Would just like to see a stronger fruit character in it.
