Notes / Commercial Description:
This NW style sour blond ale was barrel aged for up to nine months, then aged on fresh apricot for an additional six months. Aromas of sweet apricot blossoms and tart fruit are present as you draw the glass near. Deep, rich apricot flesh, then tart apricot notes dance on the palate and lead to a sweet apricot flesh finish with a lingering fruit tartness.

Hazy bright yellow color with a bit of white foam. Aroma has some medicinal fruit notes and some bright apricots​. Taste starts tart, fruity but also medicinal, quite dry on the finish. Medium body and carbonation, quite dry on the aftertaste. Not bad but it's a quite weird sour fruit ale.

Not Fou but still a great example of an apricot sour. Very tart with Apricot flesh and and skin flavor really putting this beer over the top. Can't wait to try more from Cascade.
