Bill Becker (1105) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 11, 2012
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!

Happy to finally get to try this. Incredibly sour and tart, nice mix of dried apricots and raspberry seeds, oak, vinegar and malt. Low carbonation and moderate body. Dry and acidic, dirty copper with no head.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Beautiful red mahogany color. There’s a liquor in the Alps called "nocino" (based on green walnuts), the aroma and the flavor remind me a bit of that one, but without the intensity; there seem to be a lot of raspberry, providing some woody character, tannins, and final astringency.
Compared to the other Cascade beers I tried tonight, this one starts having some complexity, but still no depth.
