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!
