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.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass, 2012 project. Beer pours a hazy golden color with two fingers of loose off white foamy head. Head dissipates quickly, leaving some light lacing and a thin collar. A few tiny bubbles streaming up from a few spots in the bottom of the glass.

Nose is apricot, sweet with some light skin astringency, lactic acid with lemon sourness, light woody note, white grape/wine.

Nice apricot flavor, lactic acid, oak, white grape.

Light body with some nice soft carbonation.

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.
