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.

A: Pours a hazed apricot color with a one finger white head that disappears pretty quickly.

S: Good lord, Cascade. This is amazing. The second I take a sniff of this, my mouth starts to water from the intensely sour aroma. Tart green apple, underripe raspberry, apricot pits and lemon mixed with a spicy oak note. As the beer warms, I start to get a jammy apricot note that's just incredible.

T: Opens with a big sour kick in the teeth. Sharp lemon bite, tart apricot and green apple and a ton of lactic sourness. There's a hit of dryness on the finish that seems to suck the moisture right out of your mouth. Once the dryness fades, I get a lingering jammy apricot note with some underripe cherry and oak. One of the best sours I've ever come across. I would love to be able to get this on a regular basis.
