Bill Becker's rating

Bill Becker (906) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Purchased online from the Brewery. Its an orange coloured brew , cloudy, small head of foam that shrinks but doesnt go away totally. The little bit of foam still does leave some nice lacing behind and, oh, I see the beers entry has the name spelled wrong. Its Noyaux. Update to be sent. The smell, well, its just heavenly. Big apricots, almost as big raspberries, the aroma you get from oak barrel aging...sourness supreme but I suspect, the taste wont 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 doesnt 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 Ive had the pleasure of drinking and none that Ive had came close to disappointing me. A BIG thumbs up to Cascades brewing efforts!

Beautiful sour but that was to be expected from Cascade. The fruit flavors are not clear but add to the mix. Just the right sourness. Bottle shared with the Oproer guys

BrettTaylor (748) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Poured from bottle into goblet. Pours a very rich gold with small-bubbled white head. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is full of tartness, apricot, and just a touch of raspberry. Pleasantly tart with balance from the fruit. Wishing for a bit more raspberry notes, but very good.

750ml bottle @ home(thanks Jamey). 2014 Vintage
Pours a cloudy pink/golden colour with a white head. Nose is classic Cascade sour, and stone fruits notes. Flavour is also classic Cascade style, quite sour, however dry, oak barrels, and a nice fruity character which comes from the raspberries and apricots.
