On tap at the Barrel House yesterday.

Amber with a dense, white head with great retention and lacing. The nose is lactic and sour with a moderate acetic character. Plenty of berry character is present. Nice. The palate opens fatty, rancid, greasy with a blend of raspberries, cherries and blackberries. Mildly buttery, this is oily and greasy. Poor IMO.

Thanks to Jeff for this want! 750ml corked and caged bottle into Torst stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a coarse layer of white bubble that dissipates quickly. Beer is a clear peach and red tea. No lace, no legs. Pretty shabby.

Nose is slight tart raspberries, band-aid, oak and just a touch of funk. I guess I can kind of see the apricot presence but its very, very faint at best. Still, moderately aromatic and decent.

Opens tart raspberry and wine notes. More red fruit tartness in the middle with heavy acidity that climaxes towards the middle-end. Band-aid, oak and a mellow funk right at the end. Vinegary too. Finishes sour with a funky, Brett-y aftertaste. This one is almost over-the-top sour. Decent but very acidic.

Light to medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slick, oily, and filmy in the mouth and goes down dry and prickly. Dry finish with a puckering aftertaste. Pretty good (though I like my sours a bit flat).

An ok beer overall but for what Cascade puts out, this isn't one of their better offerings. A bit flat and way too acidic and tart. I feel like the sour really covers all the complexities of the fruit they tried to use here. Where am I supposed to taste the toasted apricot seed meat? Cool to try but I wouldn't revisit this.

Big thanks to boralyl for getting this out my way. Served in a Cascade goblet. Pours a peach color with a light pinkish tint. The nose has aromas of raspberry and light apricot, along with a pretty heavy lactic presence. Flavor is quite pungent and very acidic. Mostly lactic, but a touch of acetic. Fruit character is fairly mild.
