Cascade Releasing Their First Shandy: Shanderine

imageFrom Cascade:

As we've been working on zesting oranges and tangerines for our Crazy Navel and Tangerine Dream projects, we had the idea of creating some sour shandy-style blends using the juice from the zested fruit, and the results have been very exciting! Introducing our first shandy-style beer offering, Shanderine, a blend of our sour wheat ale aged for 12 months in an oak wine barrel then blended with freshly squeezed tangerine juice just before packaging. Much like a classic mimosa, Shanderine features flavors of fresh citrus juice and sparkling white wine with a tart, slightly sweet finish. We've only created one keg of this, which will go on draft at the Barrel House this Tuesday, March 14. As we are currently juicing a lot of oranges, expect a couple more kegs of a similar project in a couple of weeks!

Next Tuesday, March 21, is the long awaited release of Kentucky Peach, as well as the top rated Noyaux (the #1 beer on RateBeer.com for Cascade). Both beers will be available on draft and in bottles at both Cascade pubs, as well as through out distribution network.

An all-new project in our sour beer portfolio, Kentucky Peach is a blend of sour wheat and quad ales aged in bourbon and wine barrels for up to 16 months with fresh, Northwest-grown peaches. This limited project offers flavors of ripe peaches and warm bourbon with hints of oak and a light malt sweetness.

Noyaux is a blend of sour blond ales aged in white wine barrels for up to 24 months with fresh raspberries and apricot noyaux. This unique Northwest sour ale offers a complex bouquet of raspberry fruit, rose petals, toasted almonds and soft perfume notes.
