Cascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Citrus Noyaux (2019) on May 14, 2020.
Arriving as one of Cascade Brewing’s newest projects, Citrus Noyaux (8.4% ABV) is a Sour Blond Ale “aged in oak wine barrels for up to two years with fresh orange, grapefruit and lemon peels and apricot noyaux.” For those unfamiliar with that last ingredient, the brewers at Cascade Brewing “extracted noyaux kernels from the pits of locally sourced apricots by hand and added them to the beer, imparting notes of almond and maraschino cherry that are complemented by the juicy fruit flavors of the citrus peel.”
Citrus Noyaux (2019) will release at Cascade’s two Portland pubs – Cascade Brewing Barrel House (click here to pre-order for local delivery or pickup at the Barrel House) and Lodge at Cascade Brewing (pickup only at the Lodge) – on Thursday May 14 and distribution is scheduled to follow shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 500ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Cascade Brewing’s distribution area. Prost!
