This one-of-a-kind NW sour is a blend of Belgian strong blondes aged in white port barrels with raspberries, then blended with select barrels of strong blondes that were aged on the toasted meat from the apricot nut, or Noyeaux.

On tap at the barrel room.

A: Reddened clay color with a scattering of lace and leftover lace.

N: Cherries, raspberries, lactic acid, oak, black peppercorn. Hints of acetone and vinegar. Some dried apricot in here.

T: Starts out very sweet and them moves to explicit sour. It’s the patented Cascade sweet-tart effect.

M: Sticky, carbonated, and medium bodied.

O: Pretty good and definitely enjoyable - a cut above some of their other offerings. That said, you couldn’t get me to pay the asking price for a bottle.

Poured from the bottle into a wine like tasting glass. From the DC bottle share, much thanks! Vintage 2011.

A real nice looking brew. A very quick fast fading head unfortunately, it did appear to be pink. Body color is real unique, a sort of pink and real nice peach amber body which is also opaque.

Nose brings a light solid acid quality. Raspberry like fruit, peaches, cherries with a little bit of strawberry sensing smelling sweetness. Fruit angle really is complex and varied it seems quite impressive, big fruit basket quality to this.

Palate on first sip is very spritzy. Comfortable tartness in the mid palate, with lots of fruit and a super quick finish. Fruit angle matches the nose but more in the front of the palate. Mimosa and champagne like qualities with a good quenching quality, nit juicy.

Overall a real enjoyable Cascade brew, very enjoyable.

Blind BIF Beer #2

Super tart mouth puckering taste. Overpowering everything at first but still not unpleasant. Fruit flavors along with slight sweetness are revealed after becoming accustomed to the puckering.

Slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Nothing super unique about this beer but nothing off-putting as well.

Almost no carbonation.

I had no idea what this was. I have had Noyaux twice in the last two months, and I don't remember it tasting like this at all. The other two bottles all had more carbonation than this one did, so we were thinking slight leakage maybe...
