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.

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..

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2011 vintage. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of huge tart green apple, apricot, lemon, raspberry, white wine, oak, clove, white vinegar, leather, hay, straw, musty funk, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with great balance and complexity of tart fruitiness, oak, and funky/acidic yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart green apple, apricot, lemon, raspberry, white wine, white vinegar, oak, clove, hay, straw, pepper, leather, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Big fruity acidic sourness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour green apple, apricot, lemon, raspberry, white wine, white vinegar, oak, clove, musty funk, hay, straw, leather, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible balance and complexity of tart/sour yeast ester, fruit, and oak barrel flavors; with a good fruit/sourness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very acidic, crisp, and fairly smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding fruited sour ale! Amazing complexity and balance of apricot fruit with fruity/sour yeast ester and oak barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on even with the big acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

Thanks Chris, I really wanted to try something from these guys. Beer poured into a tulip glass. Beer is yellow and hazy with not a lot of carbonation and a nice head that leaves a little lacing on the glass.

Beer's aroma is quite fruit with almost a cherry air to it with nice sour and apricot notes.

Beer tastes great, very tart, nice acidity and good fruit flavors with a mild sweetness. Very tasty overall. The sourness is a little subtle but a great beer all around. Loved it.

Wow, what a beer. Always wanted to try an apricot sour, and this was a great way to do it.

Smells of tartness and a hint of apricot.

Beautiful light orange color.

Taste is heaven. Tart acid, sweet apricot, pilsner malt, sweet to tangy finish.

Loved the mouthfeel due to the solid carbonation to help carry the flavors.

Absolutely world class.

This beer was part of a great tasting that included seven bottled Cascade sours. We took the cage off the beer and let the bottle sit there for a few minutes while we waited to drink it. With no warning, the cork shot off with a loud pop and hit the light fixture. The beer slowly gushed out after the cork shot off.

2009 vintage. The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is strong apricot. The flavor is heavy on the apricots with some light tartness. The beer is semi-dry and retains a little of the sweetness from the fruit. Very drinkable. High carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

vintage 2008

pours a nice light orange and straw yellow with a quick fizzy head.

very malty with tons of bread and biscuit with a nice funk. light apricots.

apricots and LOTS of them. i was shocked at how well this held up over two years. the apricot flavor dominated. not nearly as sour as i had hope or expected but thats ok. a nice barn yard funk crept behind the apricots but really held back.

nice moderate carbonation, light body, drinks easy.

this was amazing, blew away my expectations. flavors kept interest.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass, 2012 project. Beer pours a hazy golden color with two fingers of loose off white foamy head. Head dissipates quickly, leaving some light lacing and a thin collar. A few tiny bubbles streaming up from a few spots in the bottom of the glass.

Nose is apricot, sweet with some light skin astringency, lactic acid with lemon sourness, light woody note, white grape/wine.

Nice apricot flavor, lactic acid, oak, white grape.

Light body with some nice soft carbonation.

Served in a Sweetwater mini-snifter.

Big thanks to homebrew311 and Bellabananas for sharing this bottle!

2011 Project. Apricot always was one of my favorite Jolly Rancher flavors... Anyway, this stuff pours a mildly hazy golden-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises apricot jam, tangerine zest, mandarin orange, lemon zest, and a vague sense of sweetening spices way in the background. The taste holds notes of lactic peach, funky wheat, and lemon flesh. It's a bit simpler than the nose, but tasty and effective nonetheless. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, a highly enjoyable fruity sour, one I really wish I could try over and over again. Good times.

On-tap @ Rattle N Hum West in New York, NY.

Deep gold color and hazy with a small but persistent white head. Fantastic, complex aroma filled with apricot, oak, and funk. Flavor is fruity with a strong tart/sour presence. Carbonation is high, which keeps the beer lively and refreshing. Medium-light bodied with a dry finish.

What a treat to have on-tap. Very tasty with all aspects of the beer on point. Not sure I'd pay big bucks for a bottle, but this is a fine sour from Cascade.

750ml corked and caged bottle shared with some hoser 6/5/13 thanks Rutager for the bottle

A hazy golden orange with a few bubbles and a film for foam that leaves a few spots for lace

S big apricot nose with lots of wood and funk, a little vinegar and faint cheese, straight forward but great

T very similar to the nose but just toned down slightly, the intensity of the fruit just doesn’t quite match the nose but still tastes great

M light and sour but not puckering, turning my mouth inside out sort of thing, fairly dry and just a little grit left behind after the fact

O mellow on the sour and a very solid beer all around, worth looking for

Something I’d drink again but I know it’s not cheap, pretty stoked I have the blueberry version to look forward too

750ml corked and caged bottle i picked up while out in boston for EBF/NotB. the bottle cost me $20.25. drank from my duvel tulip. 2009 edition.

A- this one pours out a hazy burnt orange colored body with a large bright white head on top. the head lasts for a very long time, and leaves behind unattractive globs of lacing.

S- the first thing i pick up with the nose is a definite lactic sourness. after that i get a little bit of pale malts and a some wheaty notes. musty and earthy smelling. a little bit of fresh apricot in here also.

T- the taste starts out with some pale malts and a little bit of malted wheat. after that i get some lactic action. definitely sour, but not overly so. some fresh apricots after that. musty and earthy yeasty funk.

M- medium bodied and highly carbonated. nice dry finish. sour but not overly so.

D- very enjoyable. the subtle flavor of the apricot is very well integrated here. something id look for again, even with the pretty substantial price tag.

Split a 750 ml three 4 ways. Poured Into a duvel tulip.

A: pours a hazy peachy golden with a nice half a finger of slightly off white head and a touch of lacing.

S: smells of oak and sourness, peach fuzz, apricots, nice!

T: nice tartness right up front, touch of vinegar, then into an awesome peachy/apricot juicyness, delicious, a nice bit of oak on the end. Great sourness, and fruitiness, reminds me of a delicious peachy lemonade.

M: nice light medium mouthfeel with some great creamy carbonation, dry and tart on the finish with a touch of oak. And a nice lingering aftertaste that reminds me of drinking pink lemonade.

O: this beer is delicious, great balance between sweetness and tartness, with an awesome mouthfeel, awesome!

750mL bottle poured into snifter - 2011 project

Hazy light golden pour, thinner crop of white head fades into a small collar of filmy retention.

Fruit forward in the nose, juicy apricots with lactic sour scents. Funky yeast, white wine, oak. Inviting, slightly warm - I can't wait to try this.

Boom - apricots, ripe fruit, biting sourness. Lactic, slightly acidic but not overboard. Tempered amount of oak, hints of wine and white grape skin. More juicy apricots and funky, bretty sourness. Finishes with lingering fruit tartness and slight alcohol warmth.

Medium body, decent carbonation, dry and lasting on the tongue. This might be my favorite wild ale from Cascade yet, next to Vlad.

2011 Project bottle poured into a tulip glass. Note that I did have some sediment/leakage around the cork but the beer (and carbonation) appeared intact.

A: Pours initially with a very large, thick 1-inch head that disappears completely in about one minute. The beer is straight-up golden in color with visible haze. Lacing is excellent. Overall, pretty straightforward, if not unremarkable, visual presentation.

S: Initial smell is of citrus fruit: green apple, lemon, with a hint of apricot. In the background is the Brett funkiness you'd expect, along with a hint of blue cheese, lacto bitterness, and oak. Maybe it's just me, but I get little to no apricot smell at all from this beer.

T & M: Wow - just wow. I'm a big fan of sours and this may be one of the most balanced sours I've ever tried. It's acetic without being overpowering. On the sourness scale, I'd give this a solid 5. The fruit - especially apricot - is present, but not overpoweringly so. The oak is definitely in the background and lends this beer a solid backbone .Mouthfeel is excellent - a tad bit thicker and less dry that most sours (which I love). Carbonation is excellent. Really, the only complaint I have is the lack of apricot fruitiness.

O: The appearance and nose of this beer is underwhelming, but the taste is simply divine. It's really a perfectly balanced sour: acetic without being overpowering, the fruit and oak delicately balanced on the tongue. If youre expecting a fruit beer with tons of apricot character, you'll be disappointed. For all other sour-heads: highly recommended.

A - pours a nice golden orange color with a light foam. Looks like what you'd expect an apricot sour ale would look like.

S - funk, Brett, sour, tart, lemon, not getting a ton of apricot. Fairly typical wild ale/sour aroma.

T - assertively sour initially, but finishes with a very nice fruity sweetness. Definitely getting a ton of apricot and other stone fruits on the finish. Very bright acidity. Some vinegar, white wine, citrus notes.

M - starts out with a sharp carbonation but still has a nice lingering finish. Light syrupy aftertaste.

O - a very good sour ale. The fruit isn't overwhelming but instead compliments the acidity very well.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color with some amber hues. It poured with a thin white head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is a little sour but has oaky flavors from the barrel aging along with light notes of apricots.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and very tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has very nice amounts of sourness and tartness, but neither of these are over the top and are somewhat balanced off by the apricots.

Bottle labeled "2011 Project" poured into 50W tulip glass

A: Pours a cloudy bright orange tangerine color. Bubbly 2 finger head forms and fizzle quickly leaving little lacing. Appears to have a high carbonation level.

S: Tart funkiness. Belgian yeast. Oak. The apricot waft isn't strong, but it's there. A little hay and grass.

T: The apricots are much stronger in the taste than the nose suggests. The tartness is strong. Tons of funk. Oak is the underbelly of everything, balancing the sweetness well.

M: Dry. Light body. High carbonation. Sweet and a bit sticky. Prickly.

O: Once again, Cascade doesn't disappoint. My favorite offering from them to date. The Apricot in this one is perfect.

Really great sour. Mouthfeel and carbonation is on point. The flavor was nice, but there wasn't as much apricot presence as I would have liked. Pretty tart, but not overpowering.

poured into a pint glass.

The head was thick and long lasting. The color of fresh Apricots. Very lactic nose. Sweet smelling with funky aroma. Extremely lactic in taste. Very little brett flavors. The balance of the Apricots and that high levels of Lacto was near perfect. Tons of mouthsweat and puckering on this one. 9% for real? The alcohol was bearly noticable. Some points take from drinkability as it was very very sour and quite a slow sipping beer.

Awesome beer. I really like what Cascade is been doing. 2 of the three I have tried homeruns.

This is a extreme beer. Not for everyone. If you are into sours however I would highly reccomend this one. It's a really good American take on a sour beer. Perhaps one of the best I have had.

750ml into a wine glass. 2011 bottle.

A: Murky orange-gold body with a nice white head.

S: Pleasant bretty damp funk, pale malt, hint of tart fruit, some subtle spicy esters behind.

T: Nice lactic tartness and lemony acidity, big apricot presence, slightly phenolic tripel base can be detected in the finish.

M: Prickly, fine carbonation and a light body.

O: The fruit presence on this beer is awesome. Really impressed.

A: Pours a cloudy apricot in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some golden yellow + orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering about 75% of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of funky tartness with some lighter aromas of apricot and oak.

T: Upfront this beer is very tart/sour with some slightly lighter amounts of funkiness. Moderate flavors of oak with some lighter apricot fruit notes in the mid-palate. There is a pleasant lingering flavor of apricot in the finish without very much sweetness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth, almost creamy, with a moderate amount of acidic prickliness.

O: The alcohol in this beer is very well hidden, almost dangerously so... This beer has a lot of sourness and tartness, so it is not a fast drinking or sessionable beer but is very enjoyable. I would be happy to find this one again.

Reviewed from notes from 12/14/13. Enjoyed out of a dark brown 750 mL cork & cage bottle with "2012 project" marked clearly on the label. Poured into a 16 oz standard tumbler glass for lack of anything better.

Appearance - The color is pretty flat, with an apricot, light yellow-orange hue to the body. Some translucence, but overall, you can't see through the beer, as it's mostly opaque. Head is fairly light in volume, about a finger thick before fading away into an ethereal film atop the body. Minimal lacing.

Smell - Apricot, lactic tartness, and generic fruity elements with some notes of jam/preserves. Mostly sour, but there is a funk that provides a bit of heft to an otherwise piercingly acidic aroma. It's the type of sinus-clearing aroma that I love about really sour beers. The only minor quibble I would have is that it's a bit one-dimensional, sorta like the color.

Taste - Here we depart from the one-dimensional nature of the color and smell. Lots of things going on here, with apricot, mango, some apple cider vinegar, again some notes of peach preserves/jam as well as sweet white wine, like a sauterne or muscato. Nice mouth-puckering effect that becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. This one is nicely refreshing in addition to being so sour, almost like a really tart apricot lemonade.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium body with nice prickliness in spite of moderate to light levels of carbonation. As noted, there is a puckering factor, as well as characteristics that prompt me to start salivating, like really sour things can have a tendency to do.

Overall, it's probably my favorite out of a limited sampling of Cascade beers. What minor shortcomings it has in look and smell, it more than makes up for with a fantastic taste and a nice, invigorating mouthfeel. As one of the more reasonably-priced Cascade beers, it's one I'm likely to try to get my hands on again. Outstanding stuff.

The bottle was shared by Kegatron at a recent tasting, thanks Heath! Poured chilled from the 750ml into a goblet.

The color is golden peachy body with white cap of 1/4 inch and fine bead. The lace clings ok with slight film on the glass. It appears exactly as it should very attractive apricot appearance in the glass. The smell is strong and fruity with apricot and mild sweet malt note with slight floral ester and tings of yeast in the esters too with gentle tropical note and the aroma is fairly juicy scented. The feel is highly carbonated with mild sweetness and slight tartness from the fruit with a slight sweet tart qauality and mild tanginess lingering with a semi-sweet fruity finish.

This ale has a nice apricot taste, yet you get a true sense of the base beer with the malt flavor supporting very well. The taste has a semi-floral fruit tinge with some mellow candy and jammy flavors iwth light sour element in the background adding to the tangy mild and sweet essence. There is a slight tart flavor in the finish. Overall I loved this a great way to end the evening with a flavor that is both full and subtle where it counts -I would never have guessed this is 8%, it definitely has the balance of sweet and sour covered.

Thanks for sharing this one, Arne. 750ml bottle into a couple of pint glasses. Straw-colored with good clarity, for the first pour at least, with a small 1 finger head that dissipated pretty quickly. Big fruity aroma with a touch of musty barrel beneath. There isn't much tripel character left in the aroma beyond the faintest hint of pale malt. Nicely balanced on the palate; not bracingly sour by any means. Light lemony tartness, just a hint of funk. Dry and grainy, big apricot flavor minus the sweetness. Little bit of cardboard-like oxidation in the finish. Great stuff; it lands somewhere between a standard fruit beer and a wild ale.
