App- A very light glowing yellow with a small amount of head that fell quickly to a good amount of a pond layer. No real cling or dots on this one.
Smell- Very fruit forward and smells a lot like a dry white wine. Had a good bit of oak and acid behind it. Smelled inviting and light.
Taste- The flavors start small and then envelop quickly. Opening up with a dry flavor of yeast and slowly a little bit of wet and clean apricots come in. The acid hits next and then it becomes a bit yeasty on the finish. Very simple, very clean and enjoyable..
Mouth- A nice light-medium body with a fairly high carbonation level. Lots of residual fruits and yeast on this one.
Drink- I was just talking with Cpabeer the other day about how good Cascade was and how I needed to try more. This was one of those bottles I need another one or to go seek out some other flavors. Very clean and crisp. Well layered and I appreciate the amount of fruit in it..

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.

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.

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.
