Without a doubt one of the (if not THE) best beers Cascade produces. This was a 2010 barrel tasted in July 2011.
Pours a good orange hue with light head fading to a nice lace. Good carbonation despite being cask conditioned.
Amazingly aromatic with super sour apricot right off the bat with a hefty dose of sour funk. Amazingly rich nose, though rather simple and straightforward (not a bad thing).
Palate is super tart apricot with a sweet mango or peach kind of thing balancing out. Amazing flavors, just pure and expressive.
Lovely medium body with great intensity of flavors, mild alcohol presence, despite the 8.5%. Really nice balance.
Overall a stunning beer. Not the most crazy thing they make but consistent and very, very high quality.

A: poured into a tulip to a light orange that is a little cloudy with a small white head that is quick to fade to a good sized collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of sourness, apricots and some oak
T: taste is lactic sourness with a lot of apricot flavor that mixes with some oak and a hint of funk. swallow is more sourness and apricot flavor with a bit of vanilla
M: lighter side of medium in the mouth with effervescent carbonation that bristles on the tongue. The beer has a drying finish.
O: Delicious and fantastic. It's a very good beer with a lot of sourness and a huge fruit flavor. Very well done.
