On tap into a tulip at the barrel room.
A-The brew has a pure white head with pretty decent retention for a high-ABV sour beer...dense and puffy. The beer is light, light golden in color and surprisingly clear.
S-The aroma is huge on the apricot as you might expect. It is pure and intense. The sour factor is pretty high, too. The juicy tart apricot flavor combines with a musty, dusty peach flavor and some white wine. Really nice.
T-The taste is also pure, unadulterated apricot. It is tart and semi-dry with a hint of juicy sweetness. There is a nice dry and tart wine-oak character in there, but mostly it is juicy apricot.
M-The feel is light to medium in body with a spritzy carbonation that is fine and assertive.
O-This is a great fruit-forward beer. I don't think it packs the complexity of a Fou Foune, but it certainly beats out many other lesser imitations. The apricot flavor is pure and authentic tasting and the balance of fruit and sour is almost perfect. Another well-done sour by Cascade.
