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."

2011 750ml bottle poured into a 51oz chalice.

Pours orange with a bleach blond 1/2" head.

Nose is wheat, musty oak, tropical fruits,

Flavor is tons of tropical fruit, lactic sour, white wine, oak.

Mouthfeel is pretty full bodied for a barrel-aged sour. Great carbonation.

Overall- excellent. The best Cascade sour I've had.
