Beer #2

When I pulled the cork there was absolutely no pop. As I pour the beer I'm not getting any bubbles to speak of. Right away I'm thinking this is an unblended lambic. The beer pours a light reddish amber color. The smell is tart and slightly funky with just a touch of lemon juice. The flavor follows with a strong vinegar and lemon sourness. There is just enough funk to but the tartness is the dominant flavor. The finish is really tart. The body is medium with a dry finish and no real carbonation. Overall I thought this was a good sour beer even without any carbonation. My guess is Doesjel from 3F.

The reveal: Cascade Noyaux

I totally missed the fruit in this one. The fact that it wasn't carbonated really threw me. I just had a bottle of this last week, and it was carbonated, so I'm not sure what happened. The good news was that the beer was still quite good, just a different experience. I was definitely fooled.

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.
