Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ccrida on 04-18-2008

This NW style sour blond ale was barrel aged for up to nine months, then aged on fresh apricot for an additional six months. Aromas of sweet apricot blossoms and tart fruit are present as you draw the glass near. Deep, rich apricot flesh, then tart apricot notes dance on the palate and lead to a sweet apricot flesh finish with a lingering fruit tartness.

Poured from a 2011 Project 750 ml corked and caged bottle into a Cascade Brewing Barrel House branded short stemmed tulip glass

Pours a hazy gold with amber accents. A big fluffy two and half finger bright white head adorns the glass, fantastic retention and gobs of lacing are left clinging to the sides. Floral and grassy notes, apricot, bready, slightly funky yeast, vinegar, and hints of oak on the nose. Oak, juicy apricot, Juicy Fruit bubblegum notes, yeasty esters, light barnyard funk, that finishes with lactic acid and white wine vinegar sour and tartness. Light medium bodied, moderate effervescent carbonation. Smooth and silky mouthfeel with syrupy accents. One deliciously complex American sour. Definitely one that shouldn't be missed.
