Orange/apricot colored beer, murky (like the other Cascade brews I've had), with no head (it dissipates rapidly). Lots of carbonation bubbles while you drink. Very sour, fruity aroma. Just take a whiff and you know your palate is going to be working hard. A taste presents a hard blast of sour and fruity tartness. Very well balanced beer with tons of flavor. Some sours get hard to drink as you work through a bottle because the sourness builds and builds and your mouth just gets tired, but this beer is extremely drinkable and a 750ml didn't wear me out. Zero hints of the alcohol in this brew. I thought this had lots of prickly carbonation, really tickled my tongue as I drank it.

Overall, if you like sours, you will want to try this. Absolutely delicious beer.

On draught at the barrel house, Noyeaux is a hazy dark peach with a small white head that leaves scattered lace.

Smell is mostly on the sweet side, some raspberry, but with a nice little funkiness on the tail end.

Taste is great, a nicely balanced level of pucker really plays well with the robust raspberry flavor, with a nice wash of white port on the finish. This is super tasty, a really drastic improvement over when it first came out (1+ years IIRC). I'm surprised how much the raspberry has come out, with the port mellowing, and the overall complexity increasing drastically. I could personally stand a stronger pucker factor, but I like my sours to the extreme, and this is still a great beer. I'm not sure how much I'm getting for the extremely manually intensive toasted apricot nuts though.

Mouthfeel is on the slick side, lighter bodied, nice, fine carbonation.

Drinkability is pretty high, this is an amazing beer.
