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!

750ml bottle served into a snifter. Thanks for this one Tom!
A: Murky orange/brownish color. Thin white head that receded very quickly.
S: Citrus sourness. Burst of raspberries. Some oakiness, a touch of apricot and grapes. Tons of lactic acid.
T: Faint apricot and mango. Lots of raspberries and woody flavors. Slight vinous notes. Very sour!
M: Medium body with good carbonation. Very drinkable despite the sourness.
O: Excellent sour by Cascade. I've loved everything I've had by them so far. Highly recommended.

Drank before a Wolfpack football tailgate with James. This was one of the more unique colored beers. Has a cloudy orange/yellow/amber colored appearance and a very thin head of off white on it. It quickly vanishes away. The aroma comes close to being described as a fruit explosion. Plenty of that usual lactic sourness, always nicely done. Apricot is the heaviest, other fruit aromas take a back seat, but this one is plenty distinguishable from just the apricot sour they make. Oak is not absent in the aroma either.
Taste, this one does not disappoint, plenty of fruit character. Plenty of tart fruit notes (apricot) and sourness. Wheat? Some minor amount of cherry flavor with a stronger raspebrry presence in the mouthfeel. Throw in more and more citrus sourness and acidity. This is not a mild sour by any means. Carbonation is powerful. Hides the alcohol wonderfully.
