look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a copper orange color with a thin white head and a decent lace left behind. The nose is overly sweet and simple seeming a touch artificial. Candied sugars and spearamint tickle the nose as appricots take over and dominate. The taste is sugary and minty, lots of appricot roll over the tongue. Very little integration as the mint, sugars, and fruit don't seem to have a defined roll. This is overly sweet with a creamy syrupy feel, prickly carbonation in the back, and a touch wet and oily.

Hazy orange color with a short head had that rests as a constant plate.
Nice deep sour aroma with notes of orange-lemon, sulfur, must and some funky lactic.
Quite Sour and acid taste with notes of salt (lots), lemon, apple vinegar, green apples and finishing with mild apricot. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Light towards medium body with tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 7.76% is absent.
This brew sure matured well (2011). A Sour with a delicate apricot background that is able to show intense acid and sour notes without producing awkward sensations.

Muchas gracias to Jeff for cracking this with me... I love Cascade sours and apricots, so the combination should be orgasmic. Pale amber and kind of "peachy" all-around; foggy and cloudy throughout the body with only a touch of visibility to the other side of the glass. A nimbus-like head forms and grows quickly, then recedes just as fast to a silky skin atop the apricot brew that lasts for over half the glass. No lacing, no legging.

A fantastic arrangement of fresh, farm-market apricots explode upon bringing my nose to the brew. The fruity elegance is broken up by a solidifying tartness; sour, juicy, and lactic. The sourness seems to grow with each and every successive whiff, as does the acidity. Not much in the way of actual vinegar, but some vinous-oak notes reside faintly in the background. It smells fruity, it smells tart. Now I can only hope it tastes that way, too.

Well, my hopes for a sour beer were certainly met! One sip and I'm already puckering and wincing from the onslaught of lactic and acetic acid. The fruit character is astoundingly tasty, gushing with ripe apricots, lemon-juice, and maybe a hint of white grapes. Cascade Apricot is definitely a bit vinous in flavor, as the oaky and wine-like notes buckle down and start hitting the palate hard. Dry oak, damp hay, must, and horsey-funk are strong in the finish, along with the apricot's kiss of death.

Unlike the nose, the flavor also shows heavy vinegar characteristics, as well as a substantial amount of acidity. The taste is amazing, but this shit will burn a hole in your stomach lining. Granted, I had consumed a few other sour beers before this one, but each sip of Cascade Apricot left a burning feeling in the pit of my gut; I'm sure I was pushing ulcer-like levels of acidity down there.

So juicy, refreshing, and tasty, despite the fierce acidity. I was at such a personal crossroads with myself - so goddamn tasty that I couldn't stop drinking it, but I knew I would pay for each and every sip. WORTH IT. Pretty thick and heavy-bodied for a wild ale, but most of Cascade's offerings seem to be a bit stronger and heavier than those of other brewers. Lively carbonation, slick, wet, and crisp mouth feel.

All around, this is really a fantastic beer. The flavors are great; fruity, juicy, quenching, tart, mildly funky, oaky - complex and refined. Really my only large complaint is the fact that your stomach might have an easier time handling battery acid than this stuff. Although I'm not ready to blame my entire abdominal agony on this beer since it wasn't the only sour of the night, you could definitely feel each sip as it went down. But there's no doubt that I'd gladly suffer for this one again, it's far too tasty to pass up.

750ml bottle into Old Rasputin nonic glass. 2009 vintage.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, well...apricot color actually, with a billowing off-white head that frothed up quickly in the glass. It settled nicely after a few minutes into a foamy thick film that left a pretty epic sheet of lacing down the glass. Impressive.
S: Sugary sweet notes of apricots with a touch of dank barnyard musk and a light citrusy tartness. The smell is amplified after each pour and is especially perfumey and floral at times. Very inviting.
T: Not as sweet as the nose but the apricots are right there to balance out the mustiness. The finish is both refreshingly tart and funky sour. The oak barrel comes out in the finish along with some of the Belgian spices and even a hint of bitter hops from the base Tripel. Aftertaste is
M: Medium body, full yet soft carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Alcohol is completely masked.
D: Really liked the nose on this one, and the flavor and drink ain't half bad either. Pretty great all around, can't wait to try more Cascade beers!

2011 Project

Pours a hazy golden color with a massive head that slowly settled to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass.

Acidic aroma that smells slightly funky. Vinous qualities with the faintest hint of apricots. One of the more interesting smelling Cascade wild fruit ales, just wish the apricots came out more.

Apricots likewise fail to impress in the flavor. Just too subtle and hard to even identify the flavor. Moderately tart and acidic with a lot of vinous flavor. Slight oak flavor as well.

Lively carbonation helps deal with this big bodied sour. The carbonation really seems to accentuate the acidity.

Like most of the Cascade fruit wilds, the added fruit does not add much. The Kriek being the exception. Still a worthwhile sour.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - The cork blew off this one and hit the ceiling. Very hazy orange color, nice big head that disappeared really quickly and didn't leave a ton of lacing.

S - Wow, this is the most apricoty beer I have ever tasted. Smells like fresh, or maybe dry apricots, not the artificial stuff that a lot of these apricot beers smell like.

T - Apricot taste dominates. It's slightly sour, but there's a big apricot sweetness that takes over everything else. It's a very natural apricot taste that is nice and sweet and a great lambic take on the fruit itself.

M - Medium bodied, syrupy, nice carbonation.

D - Surprised this is over 8% abv. For that reason it is pretty drinkable, but the syrupy sweetness keeps it from getting super drinkable.

This is very good. The apricot works terrifically well. Nice and tart, just shy of too much, with a big fruit flavour with minimal sweetness. A little bit of funkiness, but it is pretty slim. Some oak. Quite a clean taste. Very refreshing, with a tingly body that is lively but not annoying. Really nice and a great display of apricot.

Pours a light, shimmering copper color with a light-tan head. Aroma is vivid, sweet, dried apricots. Pretty cut and dry there. Flavor is also apricot-dominated, with a bit of unripeness and a somewhat solvent acidity. Sweet at first but after the palate calibrates, the sharp tartness attacks the corners of the palate. Not terribly sour. Pretty good, the fruit is really bright and fresh-tasting.

2009 Bottling Label say 9.0% ABV... Listing says 8.3%... I'm assuming it's slightly different for each vintage.

As I've entered my exploratory phase with sours, this beer was suggested to me by several folks that I trust. I've been looking forward to trying this for several months.

Poured into my wine glass and a fluffy off white head formed. This stayed for a minute and no longer then it completely faded away. The beer is a slightly hazy amber color with orange highlights. A few wispy patches of lacing stick, but not much.

Aroma is slightly acidic, tart with some wood notes. I have to say that the first thing I thought of when I smelled this was Supplication. (that's a compliment!) As far as the fruit aroma, I would have probably guessed peach or nectarine... But I obviously realize it's apricot.

This is a fantastic beer. Initial tartness gives way to a wonderfully complex beer that's full of fruit, nutty components, plenty of oak and of course lots of character from the yeast. There is this wonderful combination of nuts and layers of malt that I've fallen in love with. As your tongue explores these there is that layer of tartness that keeps everything bright and fresh. Subtle bitterness at the end seems to compliment the apricot fruit flavors.

Body is very light and this is a very refreshing beer. The carbonation is there but it's so tiny and subdued that you'd hardly notice it. Great beer for the heat of the summer in my book. Certainly acidic.

I know I love a beer when I am already trying to figure out when to enjoy the next bottle. I just saw this at a store and I will have to pick up a couple more before this vintage vanishes. I look forward to trying this year's version. Great beer.

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.

Seven-fifty into a Tired Hands wine-style glass, about 7 months after purchase of the 2012 bottle. Paired with some inspirational Wolfpack film.

The pour produces a finger of bone-white head atop a hazy, sunset golden ale. The nose packs a big, lemon-lime and passionfruit acid punch with a good deal of apricot, green apple, tangerine, pineapple, white grape, and honeysuckle. Lighter and refreshing with a full carbonation. Oaked, crisp white wine all over this one. Flavors of apricot, tangerine, and green apple with a big crabapple sour that sticks to the roof of your mouth. Aged hops. Dry oaky, vinegar-sour finish. Sour may have moved in a little more than in my August sample. The bacteria is complex, the fruits enticing, and the oak perfect. Fantastic.

Bottle to Snifter
750 Ml

2010 release

Shared by Eric Marshall
Shared at MrHirschybars tasting

App- A very light glowing yellow with a small amount of head that fell quickly to a good amount of a pond layer. No real cling or dots on this one.

Smell- Very fruit forward and smells a lot like a dry white wine. Had a good bit of oak and acid behind it. Smelled inviting and light.

Taste- The flavors start small and then envelop quickly. Opening up with a dry flavor of yeast and slowly a little bit of wet and clean apricots come in. The acid hits next and then it becomes a bit yeasty on the finish. Very simple, very clean and enjoyable..

Mouth- A nice light-medium body with a fairly high carbonation level. Lots of residual fruits and yeast on this one.

Drink- I was just talking with Cpabeer the other day about how good Cascade was and how I needed to try more. This was one of those bottles I need another one or to go seek out some other flavors. Very clean and crisp. Well layered and I appreciate the amount of fruit in it..

big thanks to kersta and someone else for sending this one to me.

A: Pours a nice light orange hue with a small fizzy white head. No real retention or lace to speak of. Plenty of fizz though with a simple swirl of the glass.

S: Nice light dried apricot aromas. Hints of light vinegar and a touch of sweet tart.

T: Nice mild taste. Real enjoyable on a hot night. Real earthy apricot up front. A blast of acid in the middle. The end has a bit of tart under ripe peach, and some nice fresh oak.

M: Light, zippy, tasty.

D: Good, enjoyed sipping on this one while watching the NASCAR. Who says NASCAR and sour does not mix?

Reviewed on 6/2/2010. 2009 bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet apricots, peach, sweet tart candies, light funk, lactic acid. Flavor is very sweet and tart (like the candies) with some sour apricot. The sour apricot really comes out in the finish. Overall, very drinkable and tasty, quite tart. Perhaps not as fruity as I would have hoped but one of the better fruity sour ales out there.

This tart, fruited ale is first brewed as a Belgian-style tripel with a commercial ale yeast. It undergoes eight months of conditioning in oak wine barrels exposed to "free range lactobacillus" bacteria to achieve its characteristic lactic souring. This is followed by an infusion of ripe apricots and three months of further fermenting and conditioning. The beer is then bottled and allowed to condition for several more months.

The result is a golden ale with a casually hazed hue pocked by a few wayward flocs. After an initial outpouring of carbonation, no head or lace emerges. Instead, a wine-like tartness arrives with no appreciable apricot properties. This carries forward to the flavor where apricot essence is just mildly evident. A sour apple quality defines the greater part of it with a slight gingery bite. Bittering and hop flavor are deliberately withheld.

Cascade Apricot is a simple and momentarily elegant ale though it is somehow incomplete without a more fully expressed measure of fruit flavor. Give it some warming and a wishful hint of apricot does emerge.

Yellow and really hazy. Little carbonation, and 2 fingers of yellow-white head.

Smells of apricots, and its fruity with hints of sour, unripe fruit. Lambic qualities, with dusty cellar and wooden barrels.

Wonderfully sour and dry, Cantillon style all the way. Fruity apricots, but no evident sweetness. Sour lambic funk, acidic lemons, hints of wood and oak from the barrel ageing.

Thick and sour body. moderately low carbonation.

Got at Whole Foods in Santa Rosa, CA a month ago. Drinking in New Hamburg, Oct 13th, 2016. Super good brew. So close to the dry, unsweetened, Brussels classics I love. So glad to have gotten my hands on this one.

Bottle (2011 Project)

Acquired via online purchase

Hazy light amber and orange with a small off-white head that leaves dots of stick down the gueuze glass.

Complete aroma with good amounts of lactic sourness along with juicy, authentic layers of apricot, peach, sweet malt, and mild wood.

The flavor is just as good as the aroma, with generous amounts of apricot and peach flavors, a mild earthy funk, mild wood, and moderate to high levels of lactic sourness. Complete and delicious.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. A joy to drink.

One of my absolute favorites.

On tap at barrel house 04AUG12 - from notes.

pours a nice golden ale with a white rim of foam. I dive in nose first - straight childhood hit me - I grew up with an apricot tree in the backyard. This was beautiful. I can't understand how they get the apricot into the nose like this - fucking magic. I taste, anticipating a little too sweet. I was wrong. Nice and tart with a good apricot flavor and some hints of lemon and the slightest taste of copper. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off dry finish. I left with four bottles - so I musta liked it. So did my bride, so that is awesome.

2009 bottling, "ale brewed with apricots & aged in oak barrels," 9% ABV listed on label.

Typical of many a corked-n-caged bottled conditioned ale, this gushed a little upon popping the top, but not enough to make a huge mess. This beer has a tremendous look to it--a deep, coppery/reddish sunset color, with a thick dirty-white head that's incredibly firm. Tilting the glass this way and that, it leaves big rainbow-shaped lace patterns.

Aroma is very strong. I could smell it from a foot away, and bringing the nose in for a closer whiff, I have two immediate thoughts: 1) the yeast is phenomenally appealing--earthy, dirty, funky, mingling very well with the super-natural apricot character, and 2) alcohol is a little too prominent, seeming medicinal and bringing down the better elements of the nose. No matter, it's still a wonderful beer to sniff on.

Holy Extreme Sweet Tarts...this baby is sweet, and only the earthier vibe of the yeast pulls it down to earth. Very candy-like, with the apricot essence bursting like a supernova. Alcohol adds further brightness to its saccharine character. The yeast takes us from Candyland to Flanders-land, and it's right in the middle that this beer sits comfortably, from the sickly sweettoothrot of the fruit sugars to the barnyard vibe of Belgium's lambic-producing region. Of course, there's a tart/sour tandem beating up on the mouth all the while. A Sweet Tarts character lingers in the finish. Also remarkably acidic and dry.

It feels tremendous, being at once bubbly and tingly and also having the kind of heft, roundness and weight I like in big beers. The label reveals this is based on the brewery's Temptor Triple, and it's the mouthfeel that betrays the fact this is an Americanized, hybridized, gargantuan-ized sort of lambic.

I like it, but it's so incredibly bright and sweet that it's like drinking liquid candy, and at 750 ml., all to myself tonight, I can't rate drinkability that high. Doubt I'll even get through the bottle. But I love it big and extreme and alcoholic, so I do enjoy it, and can confidently say this lambic will never be mistaken as a "girly beer," as some lambics unfortunately are.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged 2009 vintage bottle into a Lindemann's Stange. Shared with schen9303.

A: Cork pops out easily but a fountain of beer quickly follows. I try to contain it... bad idea... I get showered... along with the ceiling and all the walls. What's left creates a 4 finger foamy white head with good retention. Beer is a semi-clear grapefruit yellow. Lacing is thick and layered with great cling.

S: Smells of funk, wood, yeast, apricot, cinnamon, and earth. Sweet but rather subtle with a very toned down nose that's barely detectable.

T: Apricot tartness is apparent from the very beginning and lingers throughout the whole experience. Sweetens towards the middle but this is an overall very simple and clean beer. Funk and earth mute the fruit a little. Yeasty spiciness and cinnamon at the end. Finish is sour and dry. Little to no aftertaste.

M: Light to medium bodied, good carbonation, lively in the mouth but also rather heavy with substance. Rich... if that can be a word that describes a sour. Finish is clean and dry. No aftertaste.

D: Having had the Kriek as a comparison, Cascade's line of lambics are a simple, yet very well executed take on the style. Not too tart, not too fruity, with an overall well-balanced favor that won't offend many but won't impress the heck out of anyone either. Still, I'd never hesitate to reach for one of these. Good beer.
