750 ml bottle thanks to apocalypsezombie. Cheers Tom!
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. Who'd have thunk. Oh, and there's some good lacing left behind as the foam shrinks slowly.
The smell: fruity tartness, big, oakiness medium, vanilla, hints. I can't 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 it's a more than hazy. The foam was also easier to deal with, about a finger's 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 doesn't hurt the drinkability at all.
I wish this came in smaller packages so I wouldn't have to finish it in one go. I'll be sad when it's gone.
Medium bodied, medium carbonation, excellent mouthfeel.
Clearly, another great offering from the gang at Cascade!

A - Looks like what it used to be; a blonde ale.
S - Wild flowers and apricot.
T - Not much funk due to using soley lactobacillus. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Apricot is fairly subtle. A little more sweetness and fruitiness would enhance this beer.
M - Fizziness is refreshing and beer is suitably substantial to carry its abv.
O - I was a little disappointed with this beer as it's so highly rated. The apricot character did not come through to the extent I'd have liked.
Serving type: on-tap
