Sampled on tap at Cascade Brewpub, pours a hazy orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet raspberries with some tartness, oak and vanilla. Flavour of sweet and very tart raspberries, subtle oak and vanilla characteristics. Nice balance of the sweet and sour. Very nice. floppydu (7) - USA - MAR 27, 2012 does not count
Pours a light peach, aroma is wood and funk favoring the funk. Taste is barrel up front with a fruity funk, I think raspberries, lite acidic finish. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2012

A copper amber ale with a thin creamy lacing off white head. In aroma, smooth cherry pulp, vinous treacle, Brett notes, quite nice. In mouth, a smooth corky sourish mash, with tingly mouthfeel, lactic acid, raspy mouthfeel. On tap at brewpub July 31 2011. BTW, its noyau (singular), noyaux (plural), so it should be nouveau noyau....
