861041_CB_Tangerine_2012

Cascade is adding to their mouth-puckering sour arsenal this month with Figaro and Tangerine Dream NW bottles both prepped to drop out of the Barrel House. The drumroll has been going for quite a while on both of these, so lets get down to it.

Figaro details:

  • On sale Thursday, July 11 at 4:30 pm PDT at the Barrel House, Raccoon Lodge and online
  • $25 per 750mL bottle, limit 4 per person

” This NW style sour ale is a strong blond ale aged in Chardonnay barrels for 12 months, then additionally aged with dried white figs and lemon peel for up to 12 months. Aromas of sweet figs, golden raisins and citrus zest are noticed up front. Hints of white wine grapes, lemon peel and sweet figs roll across the palate, leading to crisp lemon tartness in the finish that leaves a lingering sweetness on the tongue.”

Tangerine Dream NW details:

  • On sale Thursday, July 18 at 4:30 PDT at the Barrel House and Raccoon Lodge
  • NO online sales
  • $30 per 750mL bottle, limit 4 per person

“This easy drinking NW style sour spiced old ale was aged in rum barrels for 20 months with tangerine zest, then blended with our aged Apricot Ale. Sweet aromas of tangerine and rum are the first thing you notice as you draw your glass near. A quenching sweet citrus and rum spice take turns dancing on your palate. Rich rum spice and warmth lead to a lingering sweet tangerine finish. Most rum beers only go to 10, ours goes to 11!”

Cascade Barrel House is located at 939 SE Belmont and the Raccoon Lodge is at 7424 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy. Both are in Portland, OR.
