Notes/Commercial Description:
"Brewmaster Ron Gansberg based this Apricot Ale on a Belgian Tripel, putting it through 16 months lactic fermentation and aging in French oak wine barrels. The apricots were allowed to slowly ripen before introduction into the beer; the beer then aged another four months on the fruit before bottling."

2010 bottle poured into a sniffer.

A: A vibrant golden orange. a mildly frizzy bright white head that faded fast.

S: Beautiful sweet aromas of apricot and tarty and sour tones that are very forwardly present.

T: Beautiful sweetness from the apricots, and then a big dose of vinegar creeps in. followed by a nice finish back to apricots.

M: Nicely carbonated, no big bite from that. There is a kind of vinegar finish.

O: Wow, my first dabble with Cascade and definitely not my last. This is amazing. I have one more bottle of this but definitely going to age it as long as I can to see how it develops.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a copper orange color with a thin white head and a decent lace left behind. The nose is overly sweet and simple seeming a touch artificial. Candied sugars and spearamint tickle the nose as appricots take over and dominate. The taste is sugary and minty, lots of appricot roll over the tongue. Very little integration as the mint, sugars, and fruit don't seem to have a defined roll. This is overly sweet with a creamy syrupy feel, prickly carbonation in the back, and a touch wet and oily.

2009 Vintage

Pour: Murky orange/yellow with a slight white head.

Nose: Acetic acids and lactic acid as well. Big tart apricot and heavy oak with slight vanilla, yeast and floral notes.

Taste: Drying oak, bready yeast, floral notes, tart apricot, lactic and acetic acid.

Mouthfeel: Wonderful...creamy, frothy, and velvety smooth.

Overall: One of my favorite sours, fantastic blend here with great oak quality and fantastic lactic/acetic treatment.

This bottle is the 2009 vintage and pours a somewhat cloudied amber in color with a two finger and very effervescent head. The aromas are of very, very fresh apricots. It kind of smells like those candy Peach rings. It is very fruity and somewhat sweet. For the style it isn't on par but otherwise it does smell appealing. It tastes of tart dried apricots and peaches, almost like a poor man's geueze. There is a slight dryness but you do get a good amount of sweet and candied fruit. It drinks semi dry and light to medium in body. Overall this beer is just ok in my opinion. I appreciate that they made a beer with this fruit but it is just so fresh and fruity, even being the 2009 vintage. I would like a more tartness or a legitimate sourness and not so much gummy candies. If this beer was drier, and had some funk, it could be spectacular. Right now, it's just ok and not really of your $20+.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.
2009 vintage; according to the bottle label it is 9% abv.

A: Slightly hazy, medium amber color with less than one finger of diminishing off-white foam head. Scant lacing remains on the glass and individual bubbles rise throughout the column.

S: A balanced display of strong lactic and acetic notes, aromatic malt that seems floral and complex, and yeasty fruit. The addition of volatile oak, building in the nose as the beer warms, represents the perfect addition to round out this beer's aromas. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins dry, with immediate aromatic oak and bright fruity grain. This beer is intensely tart, more acetic than lactic (but showing both sides.) The middle becomes very fruity, like a yeasty and fermented apricot puree. Tartness diminishes stepwise in the finish, where some late spirituousness develops.

M: Medium to thick viscosity, syrupy and acidic on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: An excellent sour ale, this beer is not as palate-friendly as its reputation might sometime suggest. It is full of bold flavors, as suggested by its 9% abv, though pure alcohol qualities are minimized. Look for the apricot qualities to emerge as it warms, but classic aspects of the tripel style are never fully realized. The bottled beers of Cascade are always a tough buy, due to their high price tag, but time spent in the barrel is worth the extra cost due to the powerful and appealing oak qualities that are derived from it.

Opened up to a slow gush, looks infected, hope not. Its a 2009 also.
Poured a nice deep copper color with a thick and creamy white head, nice retention and good lacing.

The smell is very sour, almost a malt vinegar quality, very nice.

The flavor is dominated by the big sour flavors with and underlying tropical fruit quality, I get more pineapple than apricot, but it might be that the apricot has dropped out a bit due to age, the flavors gel incredibly well non the less.

The mouthfeel is light and a bit oily.

Very nice Flanders Style Sour.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

Pours a hazy amber orange color with a small light white head not much lacing. Nose is phenomenal, it's fruity, tart and crisp.

Taste is apricots, it's earthy, mellow, very tart and sour, but still drinkable - there's an earthy quality that's unique and tasty. Mouthfeel is light and smooth crisp and delicious.

2009 vintage.

Cascade Apricot has a golden tinged, orange body with a full-sized off-white head. Retention is quite good, a little bit of lacing stays behind as well.

The aroma has a huge sourness to it, with apricots behind it. Insanely sour aroma.

The first sip of this beers seems to be ridiculously sour to me also, but subsequent tastes seem to be toned-down quite a bit. Cascade Apricot has a moderate to heavy sourness overall; however you want to quantify it, the sourness is pretty good. Behind the sourness is an obvious apricot flavor, which is always a nice fruit to pair with a sour flavor. Beyond that, there is a dose of wood and a leathery flavor.

Not quite mouth puckering, but Cascade Apricot definitely gives me a tinge of that sensation. Fairly high carbonation.

Cascade Apricot is a solid sour that relies mostly on a sharp, lactic sourness and fruit flavors. I like it, and it was quite nice to drink.

Served in a Duvel Tulip - Thanks BuckeyeOne!

Murky golden yellow body with moderate lacing, and a nice fluffy white head. Fizzy, fine champagne-like carbonation. Head dissipates in a couple seconds.

Weird medicinal aroma, juicy apricot, white unripe plum flesh, granny smith apple skins.

More strange medicinal notes on the palate. It tastes like fake apricot. Fruity and sour as expected, though it could've been even more sour. A little funky/musty/grassy and mildly oaky. Thin, crisp mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not as interesting as I had hoped unfortunately. Real good attempt for brewing this of a base Tripel, a little less "good" as a Fruit Lambic, but I consider this more of an American Wild Ale.

Huge thanks to MbpBugeye for sharing this bottle. This was a want for most of the year for me.

2009 bottling.

A - This beer has lots of nice vigorous carbonation. There was a very loud crack as the cork was dislodged. The beer has a bit of a ruddy appearance with a blood orange color. Hints of sunflower at the top of the glass where the liquid was a little more thinly distributed. Droopy, spotty lace.

I should point out that the first pour (into Seth's LA tulip) was quite stunning. Excellent clarity with a tall head that stuck around forever. However, I have to review the beer in my glass. Otherwise the appearance would be getting a 4.5 or 5 for the score.

S - Orange, lemon, brett, and sour white wine grapes are composing the nose on this one. Apricot is missing in any sort of significant, game-changing type of way. That said, this beer smelled awesome.

T - Tart, with some orange juice flavors, and apricot finally comes out to play. It is quite juicy and very easily distinguishable. Riesling grapes rise up midway through each sip, providing sweetness and another level of tartness. This is in my top 5 or 10 American Wilds to date.

M - Nice carbonation on this one. Medium bodied for a wild. A bit sticky.

O - An excellent beer. In short... another home run for Cascade.

A: Hazy copper with amber highlights. Big bubbly head, that actually sticks around and coats the surface nicely. 4

S: Funky at first then the sweet ripened apricot comes through very nicely. A little bit of booze, some vingar tartness, oaky wood, mild must. Damn this smells delicious! 4.5

T&M: Taste is a refreshing mild tartness of apricot, sweet and sour brett tang, and mild oaky undertones. So refreshing. This is one carbonated mother but it smooths out really quick and goes down easy. 4.5 / 4

O: This is an excellent beer, awesome flavor, crisp and very refreshing during these summer months (not that Seattle got summer this year, still waiting for it...). The apricot is noticeable but subtle which is very nice. I don’t think it should dominate the palate. 4.5

The bottle was shared by Kegatron at a recent tasting, thanks Heath! Poured chilled from the 750ml into a goblet.

The color is golden peachy body with white cap of 1/4 inch and fine bead. The lace clings ok with slight film on the glass. It appears exactly as it should very attractive apricot appearance in the glass. The smell is strong and fruity with apricot and mild sweet malt note with slight floral ester and tings of yeast in the esters too with gentle tropical note and the aroma is fairly juicy scented. The feel is highly carbonated with mild sweetness and slight tartness from the fruit with a slight sweet tart qauality and mild tanginess lingering with a semi-sweet fruity finish.

This ale has a nice apricot taste, yet you get a true sense of the base beer with the malt flavor supporting very well. The taste has a semi-floral fruit tinge with some mellow candy and jammy flavors iwth light sour element in the background adding to the tangy mild and sweet essence. There is a slight tart flavor in the finish. Overall I loved this a great way to end the evening with a flavor that is both full and subtle where it counts -I would never have guessed this is 8%, it definitely has the balance of sweet and sour covered.

2009 bottling per the label, courtesy of mrand01 from our in person trade yesterday.

Pours a nice deep golden honey color with a thick cream colored 2 inch head on top and plenty of tiny carbonation bubbles.

Aromas begin quite lactic and acidic with plenty of fruity smells; apricot obviously but it also almost smells like peaches. I've heard apricots smell and taste like peaches when added to a beer. The sourness is def also present like fresh green unripened apples with a hint of oak barrel.

The tastes begin with sweet apricot immediately met with sour acidity. The oak and fruit provide a fair amount of tannins which dry out the beer quite a bit; pretty sour but not overly so that becomes a sipper or you need a glass of water.

The carbonation is quite high on the mouthfeel and the beer is very dry, especially on the finish, which I like in this style. Less sweet and quite dry; the way a fruity Belgian Flanders should be. Crazy high drinkability for 9.0%ABV. Not that I am going to but I could pound this if I had to; carbonation might slow me down but just saying...

Overall this is my first Cascade sour and I couldn't be happier with it; also my first apricot sour. Very enjoyable but just like all sours I will only really crave/want them on these crazy hot summer days when normal heavy beer is just undrinkable. Do I have to drink this again, no, but would I, definitely. Blows all that crap Lindemans brews way out of the water.

Poured into a Mikkeller glass on 6/21/11

Thanks to MbpBugeye for sharing

2009 bottling

Apricot/orange color is browned with some sediment that made its way into the glass; it's a bit murky as a result. One inch crackling head. Dissipates rapidly to a thin layer, leaving some lace.

Of course, apricots are at the fore of the aroma, offering a fresh fruit sweetness. There is a short-lived tangy note. A bit of mustiness rounds it out. More oak moves in as the beer warms.

Pow. Tastes a lot punchier than it smells, kicking up a showing of tartness. Apricots are had throughout; their application is fresh and clean. Barrel characteristics build on the latter half - musty, dank and water-logged. I dig it.

The moderate body has a sharper, crisp feel. Mellows over time and bulks up a tad. Dry, funked, barrel-laden finish.

Very well done. Alcohol is hidden almost entirely.

Thanks to the most Ale-y of Watchers for this bottle. Shared with Spider889 and Ryan011235. Poured into a Lost Abbey tulip.

Appearance
Lots of frothy head the color of heavy cream. Its incredibly long lasting, never really fading below a finger in height, so there's lots of droopy, heavy lacing. The beer is a deep peachy orange.

Aroma
Tart but its more oaky, increasing with warmth. A lot of nice funk. The funk is grassy, hay like and dusty. Apricots play a big part, giving this beer a juicy center and aromas of not yet ripe fruit. Spicy yeast intertwines with apple aromas. Some vanilla oak and a big horse blanket funk arise with more warmth.

Taste
Quite juicy. Lots of under ripe flavors that even border on bitter, providing balance. This beer has a very funky middle with lots of horseblanket. It then sweetens and becomes fruity for a crisp finish.

Mouthfeel
This is a tamer sour. It has a gentle pucker and a gentle dryness. The carbonation is sharp but soft at the same time. Alcohol is actually apparent, which is a feature I feel this beer could do without.

Overall
A quite nice beer. A tame, gentle sour loaded with under ripe apricot juiciness. Cascade does not disappoint.

Rich orange and amber in color with a good amount of cloudiness and haze to it, enough that you could barely see through to the other side. Nice light puff of white on top that faded leaving only a little bit of lace on top.

The aroma was beautiful. Rich sour funkiness with huge touches of apricot mixed in. Light peppery and spice notes come through as it warms, but the sour funk was so hardcore. The flavor was puckeringly good. Rich apricot and apple vinegar sour notes are all over this one. As it warms like barrel notes, lots of spice and a long drawn out and very dry. Super drinkable and very refreshing, this was one of the best sours I have had.

My third bottle of the Apricot. This time is the 2009 bottling

Pour is a bright orange copper with a healthy sized white head for a sour ale.

Aroma of fresh apricot fruit mixed with lemon, a bit of funk , sweet malts and flanders yeast.

Taste is a truly refreshing bretty funky apricot ale. There is a nice complex body to it with sweet fruit flavors mixing with sour ale and a healthy dosing of pale malt flavors. Caramelized sugars also chime in in the background. For a Sour lambic, this is a really nice tasting high octane sour. I have a hard time letting the glass sit on the table as it is nice and refreshing on a hot summer night.

2009 bottling date. 750ml brown glass champagne bottle with cork and cage. Purchased at Knightly Spirits OBT, Orlando, FL.

Pop! Clear orange amber body with very thin white head. Nose is packed with citrus fruit notes. Lemon, lime zest, blood orange, a hit of funk and maybe a hint of red wine vinegar. As it warms there's fruit leathers too, like apricot of course and also something like Kool-aid mix. Palate is tart right off the bat. There's enough sweetness there to keep it from being straight up sour. Apricot dominates for sure with tangerine juice and orange pulp. A hint of wood smoke appears and then vanishes. Lemon meringue and key lime pies. Yum. Tart and delicious.

9.0% ABV, 2009 Bottling, Serve at 45°-50°F

Beerwolf77 constantly scratches my sour itch and nailed this big time want of mine so it's high-time I unveiled my massive "thank-you" to him: http://www.beerfm.com/2011/05/an-ace-of-base-ode-to-beerwolf/

A - Pretty clear, the golden apricot orange beer is loaded with strong carbonation. A tall pour lets loose a three-finger off-white head with great retention and lace despite the acidic level.

S - Minimal lactic acid comes through but tons of fruity apricot and funky barnyard wild yeast notes! Goaty, horse blanket, wet straw, fantastic fruit lambic aroma with an oaky finish.

T - The apricots don't come through as much as I had hoped but that definitely doesn't hinder my enjoyment of this awesome brew! Fruity, funky barnyard wild yeast blends perfectly.

M - Super sour and tart with great lactic tartness and a ball-twisting sour finish. Medium-bodied and highly carbonated

O - Fantastic. Not a hint of alcohol. Full acidic sourness and apricot fruitiness. This is a brilliant brew! Thanks Todd!

Dark peach colored pour, damn, apricot, nectarine and peach all look so cool when done well, this one, with a clean white head, looks damn near perfect. Good bitter fruit aroma, very enjoyable.

Taste, hides alcohol well, fruit appears plenty fresh, excellent sour quality to it, plenty high, but not ridiculous to overwhelm the fruit. Leans to the sour more than sweet side for sure. Doesn't have that high fructose sweetness to it that lesser lambics and fruit beers will delve into.

Carbonation keeps it from too much heft on the palate in terms of mouthfeel and aftertaste. The slight wood finish to it is never soggy, its a dry one. Did I mention that the alcohol tastes nonexistant? Pricey at $20 a bottle. But thanks to jh1982 for bringing this to March Madness 2011. Hell of a time, we drank this one before the Marquette/Syracuse game, had me worried about drinking an orange beer that it would help the Orange. No such luck! Sweet Sixteen for Marquette!

Bottled 2009.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice. Nice whispy head with a slight lacing that remained throughout the beer. Ripe apricot aroma. Sour and tart. Musty funk. Hazy burnt orange.

Excellent balance. Dried apricot upfront. Then the sourness hits. Followed by musty barnyard funk. Delicious. Crisp in the end. So juicy and mouth watering. I have to have another sip. Perfect amount of carbonation for the style. Delicious. An excellent sour and my first apricot example. I want to buy a case!

2009 bottling, pours a cloudy amber with sunset orange hue. A heavy champagne style foam quickly builds and recedes just as fast. Nose is of sour funk, apricots, must and earth and a little spicy belgian yeast. Taste is a puckering citrus sour, stone fruits and a pleasant funk along with an unfortunate penny taste. Easy to drink and hides the abv well. Solid sour though not great.
