Purchased online from the Brewery. It’s an orange coloured brew , cloudy, small head of foam that shrinks but doesn’t go away totally. The little bit of foam still does leave some nice lacing behind and, oh, I see the beer’s entry has the name spelled wrong. It’s Noyaux. Update to be sent. The smell, well, it’s just heavenly. Big apricots, almost as big raspberries, the aroma you get from oak barrel aging...sourness supreme but I suspect, the taste won’t be way over the top. Apricot sourness, raspberry sourness, woody notes..man, this is one hell of an American Wild. Every new sip seems to kill the previous sip and this is one example(of many) of why certain brews *should* be bottled in the 750ml format. 8.94% abv? It doesn’t drink that strong at all; this is dangerously drinkable. Medium bodied, lightish to moderate carbonation(lightish on the front, moderate on the back end), the mouthfeel is just right for the style. To sum things up, Noyaux may be the best Cascade brew I’ve had the pleasure of drinking and none that I’ve had came close to disappointing me. A BIG thumbs up to Cascade’s brewing efforts!

Echilibrată cu lacto (dominant) puțin aceto, fructe ușor care ii da un fel de brightness si prospețime.

Dégustée chez Alexandre Mathieu. Cheers! Bière couleur pêche dont la teinte principale se rapproche beaucoup de la couleur de l’étiquette de la bouteille. Petite mousse en surface mais rien d’impressionnant. Brassée avec une quantité appréciable de noyaux, cette bière offre une palette aromatique, tant olfactive que gustative, vaste qui aux abricots très présents ajoutent une forte quantité de noix et d’amandes. Ça goûte tantôt la fraise, tantôt l’abricot, tantôt la cerise noire, toujours avec une amande verte italienne comme trame de fond. Acidité faible pour un produit Cascade, cette bière est un coup de coeur dans cette généreuse dégustation offerte par Alexandre. Merci encore mon vieux!

Thanks Rian for sharing! Smooth fresh nose. The beer is very sourish-fruity. Very intense sour, the fruity raspberries are there, ver fresh. Intense sour and easy to drink. Smooth and sour together. Very round and nice. Only the apricot-pits are not too obvious. Fresh sourish aftertaste. Intense-smoth, sour, very round and great. Citrus, fresh sour raspberries, intense fruity. Great!

Pours bright orange with a thin whitrwhite head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of sour apricot, raspberry, wet hay, oak, rose, almond, and light cherries. Taste is very sour and has similar notes to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy, sour, bone dry, sour, lingering finish. Overall, a another excellent world class sour ale from Cascade that is very drinkable.

Bottle. Hazy orange in color with a whitish head. Funky fruityness, bit of sweet almonds, tart raspberries and citrus notes in aroma. Really refreshing vibes from the start here. Apricot and wooden barrel notes later on. Sour notes upfront tastewise, fruity apricot and funkyness too. Refreshing one. Citrus, tartness and wooden notes in the end.

shared bottle sample by a kind soul at a bar. somehow some of these cascade beers see distribution to the netherlands. very glad i got to try this one. poured a hazy orange to amber colour with a small creamy ring on top. nose of fresh apricot, stone fruits, apricot skin, peaches, oak, tart, lactose, vineous oak, getting some sour fresh raspberries aswell. apricots, really clear fruit notice. vanilla from the oak aswell. tart fruits, wild yeast, low carbonation, but a nice full creamy mouthfeel. lovely for a sour ale

Draft pour at the Sixgill. Cascade brewery night. Pours a bright orange copper color with almost no head. Fresh orange, apricot, and apple aroma. Flavor is juicy, and wonderfully sour. Fresh apricot, orange, and mixed berry holds on forever. love the lingering tartness to it. Another great addition to an already outstanding lineup from these guys. Wonder what’s next.

Draught at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Portland, OR. 2013 vintage. Sourness, mild tartness, funky notes and moderate sweetness in an intriguing aroma. The flavour is berries, dryness, sourness, mild funk and mild vinous notes. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
