Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: largadeer on 06-24-2011

Strong blond beers were aged in fresh Chardonnay barrels for three months and then additionally aged with dried Adriatic white figs and Spanish lemon peel. Aromas of sweet malts, figs, raisins and citrus zest greet you in the nose. Hints of Chardonnay grapes, lemon peel and sweet figs roll across the palate, leading to crisp lemon sharpness in the finish that will leave a lingering sweetness on the tongue.

A - Deeper orange interchanges with hazy straw gold

S - Foreshadows the lemon-based tartness which is soon to pepper the tongue

T - Assertive mouth-puckering tartness which I like. Tart white grape and lemon. No discernable fig.

M - Nice mouthfeel.

O - One of the better offerings I tried at Cascade. Generally I found their beers quite samey, but nonetheless this was a solid offering.
