look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy yellow color with a small, very lightly off-white colored head.

S: The aroma is quite funky and sour offering up notes of apricot and floral qualities.

T: Taste is more of the same. Fairly aggressive sourness, tart apricot, lemon, floral notes, just a hint of berries and some light oakiness.

M: Body is on the lighter side as is the carbonation. Aggressive sour tartness without anything to balance it out.

O: Had this one immediately following a Sang Noir, so the comparisons are inevitable. Noyaux had a better nose to it, but Sang Noir tasted better, offering up more fruit and a better balance. Overall, a nice beer, but not one that I think I'd want a whole bottle of.

2014 Bottle Poured into two 16 oz tulips

A — Pours a reddish peachy hue not too unsimilar from the label. A puffy white head forms and actually sticks around the edges leaving some lacing behind.

S — Smell is pungent and punchy with notes of raspberry, peach, lemon, and white wine.

T — Tart and tangy with notes of raspberry, cherry, peach, apricot, melon, white wine, oak.

M — Medium bodied, lingering finish.

O — Fantastic overall, a great depth of flavor and a tremendous beer through and through.

A teardrop glass ($5), early evening on Thurs 3/25. Sat at a booth in the Den, watching NCAA hoops and guys play video poker.

A: The cop-out would be to call an apricot-based beer 'apricot' in color, but it's just about the perfect description...guess I'll go with 'butterscotch' to aptly characterize the hazed orangeness roiling in the glass. Plenty of carbonation rises to a 1/2 finger of dense white cream. Head dwindles shortly, long drips of lace trail each sip.

S: Big and pungent, an earthy nose that shares its tart fruitiness liberally. Apricots, of course - then a bracing sting of woodsy mustiness that sweetens and mellows when given some time.

T: As brash a tartness as one could ask for: a tangy citrus-like squeeze from the start. A bit of Meyer lemon, a murky tartness (that sometimes seems more like raspberries or blackberries) of white grape and the requisite apricots. Sneaking nuttiness that speaks of the 'noyeaux'/apricot pits used in crafting this...a mellowing sugariness that balances the sourness. Wonderful blend, a joy to sip.

M: Crisp carbonation, refreshingly quenching in a way that only fresh-squeezed lemonade can mimic. Medium body that never builds as much as the higher gravity and yeastiness led me to suspect; stayed lively/springy. Cleaner finish, fine notes of 'barrel' smoothness the further into the glass I went.

D: For an 8.5% brew that smacks of all things tart and funky - well, it's pretty damn drinkable. The subtlest boozy glow, but really the test is how much 'wildness' one's palate can accept. The 10-12 oz. in this glass was plenty good in a short sitting, but I coulda/woulda/shoulda enjoyed another had I had more time to spare. Worth seeking.

Appearance is cloudy yellow with almost no head. The nose is somewhat musty with a huge dose of earthiness, with tons of apricot and oak. Taste is very tart up front with a nice amount of sweetness. Oak is a little lighter on the taste than the nose. Cherry, apricot, and oak come through the strongest. Overall, very nice with to a of flavor.

The beer pours a nice white foamy head that is pretty thin and dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is very nice a clear pale amber color that has as beautiful orange and light brown hues that strongly resembles the color scheme of a peach. It actually is very good looking and definitely appealing.

The smell is absolutely wonderful. It has a strong raspberry smell with it's nice sweet fruity and slightly sugary smell with its strong tart smell. The smell also has some a nice moderate brett funk note that mingles well with the tart note. The peach note hovers around but isn't really that prominent.

The taste is delicious and much better than the smell. It has nice mix of fruit notes that go well with the tartness. There's almost no hop bitterness and mainly raspberry mixed with peaches. The rapsberry notes provide a slight sugary sweetness that is not overdone while providing a nice jam tartiness. The beer also has a great peach taste that adds its own nice juiciness

The feel is pretty good. It has a nice medium body. The carbonation is fairly light and gives a nice pillowy feeling. It isn't too light that it doesn't add anything but not so heavy that it's crisp and biting (which would be too much given the slight bite from the sour dryness).

Overall, this is a fantastic beer and worth getting your hands on. The beer is little pricey to the point where some people might not be willing to go for it. However, this is definitely for the die hard sour/wild ale fan.

2011 Project
ABV 8.94%

A pink hued golden ale with a loose surface of grey-white foam. Smells of raspberries, bits of marzipan, and a little oak - really reminds me of Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus. Some hints of almond. Taste is crazy sour - ripping my enamel sour! Raspberries are in there, but fuck, this is SOUR. Some acetic quality, but tons of lemon, and hints of apricot in the back end. Thin beer with low carb and a dry finish, but the tartness makes me salivate Pavlovian style. Crazy beer.

Thanks to Jeff for this want! 750ml corked and caged bottle into Torst stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a coarse layer of white bubble that dissipates quickly. Beer is a clear peach and red tea. No lace, no legs. Pretty shabby.

Nose is slight tart raspberries, band-aid, oak and just a touch of funk. I guess I can kind of see the apricot presence but its very, very faint at best. Still, moderately aromatic and decent.

Opens tart raspberry and wine notes. More red fruit tartness in the middle with heavy acidity that climaxes towards the middle-end. Band-aid, oak and a mellow funk right at the end. Vinegary too. Finishes sour with a funky, Brett-y aftertaste. This one is almost over-the-top sour. Decent but very acidic.

Light to medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slick, oily, and filmy in the mouth and goes down dry and prickly. Dry finish with a puckering aftertaste. Pretty good (though I like my sours a bit flat).

An ok beer overall but for what Cascade puts out, this isn't one of their better offerings. A bit flat and way too acidic and tart. I feel like the sour really covers all the complexities of the fruit they tried to use here. Where am I supposed to taste the toasted apricot seed meat? Cool to try but I wouldn't revisit this.

The beer pours like a can of seltzer would with a loose white head that fades as quickly as it forms without lacing. The body appears to be a cloudy, dull, rusty amber with a nose reminiscent of vinegar, berries (in this case raspberries and cherries) and no distinct notes of toasted noyaux. The beer drinks with a lot more fruit forward sweetness than expected followed by a tart, dry, yet sweet palate washing. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, tart, and semi-sweet. It's definitely one of the most drinkable sours I've had since figaro. I'd recommend trying this beer, it's at least worth a try.

On-tap at Belmont Station for the Puckerfest Cascade Event

a - pours a bright golden amber, one-inch white head with good retention and lacing, quite hazy

s - sour lemons, grapefruit and raspberries, light nuttiness and leather notes, also light oak barrel aromas on the nose

t - sour lemons dominate up front, raspberries show up on the midpalate with more tart citrus, very acidic, there is a light nuttiness, perhaps from the toasted Noyeaux, good deal of oak on the finish along with lingering lemon and raspberry flavors and some spices, alcohol is fairly well hidden

m - medium-to-light bodied with moderate carbonation, pretty dry on the finish, not much alcohol warming

d - very clean and refreshing on the palate, complexity is enough to keep it interesting, alcohol isn't ovewhelming, nor is the tartness/sourness

Very good stuff, but it probably took 3rd place at the event behind Sang Noir and Manhattan Transfer. Unique stuff that's different from anything else I've had.

A: The head is a lacy ivory white head that disappears quickly. The body is a light beautiful pink tinged orange color.

S: A rich aroma of berries and funk. There tart comes off potently and blends perfectly with the essence coming from the berries.

T: Sweet and tart at the same time. The berries add a pleasant flavor and the souring yeast is very obvious and delicious. In the background of the beer there is a creaminess that finishes the beer nicely. Well blended and perfectly balanced.

M: A little thin body but great carbonation.

O: Graet sour. On of my favorite. Well worth actively seeking out.

750ml corked/caged bottle. Took my sample in a tulip. It was a gusher -- I hate that. It's been resting in the fridge for nearly a week, so it shouldn't have been agitation. This is the 2013 project -- didn't notice any other dates, but didn't look.

Pours a nice mostly clear golden amber color with a medium head that doesn't seem to be fading. It's supported by plenty of fine streamers of carbonation. Smell is tart -- very apricotty or unripe peachy.

Taste is tart, sweet-tart characteristic that is heavy on the stone fruit.

Mouthfeel is very dry. Overall, very nice beer. Happy to be drinking this.

750ml bottle.

Pours hazy copper with an orangy hue and a thin, whitish head. A thin bead rings the glass with a few streaks of lacing for the duration of the glass.

Aromatics lead off with soured fruit and bright acid. Tannic, tart apricot pits with appleskins and a hint of raspberry. A bit tropical with hints of grapeskins and peaches.

Medium bodied with a sharp, crisp mouthfeel. Puckering and a bit perky in the jowels.

Sour, tart orange fruits with aspirin-dusted peach and apricot pits start the palate. Vineous and quite sour with loads of under-ripe fruit and lemon-pulp following through.

Finishes with a lingering soured fruit assault, jowel-watering and puckering in nature, with a pithy intensity.

One of Cascade's more intense beers. Very nice but some funky brett would really blow this one out of the water.

On tap at the Raccoon Lodge on St. Paddy's Day. Thanks to ramnuts for DDing. From notes, so pardon the brevity.

A: Pours a very murky glowing orange-amber body with a half-finger of off-white head, short retention, thin collar, no lacing.

S: Raspberry tartness, apricot, lactic sourness, citrus (orange, lemon), spice phenols, oak.

T: Tart raspberries up front, delivering an undercurrent of apricot. It segues neatly into lactic sourness balanced by white port sweetness, orange, lemon, and oak. The finish is dry, bringing out spices, some nuttiness.

M: Light-bodied. Low carbonation that is amply replaced by the acidic body, which creates a fairly clean finish.

D: I enjoyed this one. The market saturation of American Wilds is producing a lot of high-quality beers. This isn't in the top tier, but it's enjoyable enough to be in the next one.

Drank from a 750 ml/1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz. corked and caged bottle purchased at Appalachian Vinter, Asheville, NC
2014 project
Served in a tulip

Really attractive appearance. Ruby red grapefruit juice came to mind. The pinkish-peach colored body was capped by a big bubbled cap of froth that broke apart into a lasting film. A thick collar encircled the liquid. Steaks of lacing stuck all along the glass.

Fantastic aroma. Really fruity and bright. Crisp, dry and tart. Underripe raspberries came through strong. Hint of peach. Perhaps some strawberry notes too. There was a slight vinegar quality. Big powdery yeast notes were also apparent. Slightly musty as well.

The flavor profile was very similar to the nose but contained less fruitiness. Super tart and quite acidic. Lots of lemon and white vinegar. Good amount of green apple too. Slightly oaky on the finish. Crisp, dry and refreshing. Powdery yeast notes lingered after the swallow. The vinegar and the overall acidity increased as the beer warmed.

Medium bodied mouthfeel. Slick and smooth. Crisp. The liquid contained a fine, subtle effervescence that turned frothy on the palate.

Cascade makes some of my favorite domestic sour beers, but a number of their offerings merely fall in the middle of the pack. This beer is definitely one of the latter. A flavorful and interesting beer for sure, but I was hoping to taste more of the raspberry and the "noyaux." At $35 a bottle, this is definitely a one time purchase for me.

Reviewing Noyaux from Cascade Brewing out of Portland, Oregon. This is an intentionally soured blonde ale aged in white port barrels with raspberries and apricot pits.

Score: 98

2011 project (2012 release) bottle served in a Goose Island Chicago Flag snifter and enjoyed on 02/23/13. Review is from iPhone notes

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange color with a thin amount of white head that settles to a ring around the glass. Below average lacing, average retention. No floaties; clean in appearance. 4/5

Smell: Apricots, sour raspberries and oak. A touch of vanilla and some peach notes too. A little plasticky funk too, but in a good way akin to how Cascade Strawberry smelled. 4.75/5

Taste: A nice medley of tart raspberries, tart apricot and peach. Lingering tart citrus zest and peach flavor. Nice tartness and growing pucker as it warms up. Faint oak too. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied, low-medium carbonated. Super tart, nice pop on the palate. Dry and slightly sticky. Increasingly tart as it warms up. 5/5

Overall: This just might be Cascade's best beer. I enjoyed this more than Sang Royale and Sang Noir, which I absolutely adored. I love how tart and fruity this brew is.

Cost: $25 for a 750 ml bottle.

Pours hazy dark ping, with a one finger white head, which has good retention and lacing. Nice tart aroma with raspberries, oak, apricots, lactobacillus, almonds, and white wine.

Tastes like it smells. Acidic. The raspberries come through stronger than the apricots, and are more dominant in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes somewhat dry. Another very good Sour from Cascade.

Tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark tangerine color with a bit of white head while fizzles out quickly to a still surface. No lacing or retention.

S: Raspberry in the forefront, with moderate oaky and spice notes, apricot, lactic acid, and orange. I love the interplay of the two fruits with the oak. Despite the name, I get more raspberry than apricot, but either way it's very nice.

T: Moderate sourness up front and throughout the sip, apricot is more forward here, light barrel, finishing with the same lactic sourness.

M: Medium-full body and medium carbonation.

O: Tasty stuff, in the style of Cascade's other sour beers. I like the combination of fruit, and the barrel treatment adds a nice element. Sourness is a bit fatiguing and can limit the drinkability.

750ml
From the fall 2012 release
5oz Pinocchio's mini snifter

A: Pours cloudy grapefruit purée like. Not a lot of head but good carbonation. Streaming up from bottom. Lots of tiny bubbles rising up.

S: Awesome nose here. Really fruity and tart. Getting lots of those raspberries initially. Digging in you do pull some apricot as well. Some mild oak, but the fruit really is center stage and extremely pleasant with the funkiness going on.

T: Really tart up front. Get that raspberry. Big tart fruit. Plus some sweetness from apricot. The ABV is extremely well hidden. This is a dangerous drink at 8.5%. The mid palate the sourness isn't as cloying and you do pull some of that oak character. This leads into the bone dry close. Very similar to white wine.

M: Medium bodied.

Cascade Brewing Noyaux
2011 Project

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a very nice deep and dark orange color with some nice amber hues. There is a nice half-inch white head that form and is quite lively, receding quickly to a thin ring around the glass. (4.0)

Aroma starts with some nice tart notes. Fruit sourness mostly. Apricot sweetness and sourness comes through the nose with intense raspberry notes. Nice and fruity with some slight wood notes. There is some awesome mild sweetness in the nose as well. (4.5)

The flavor starts with sharp fruity tartness. Big apricot and raspberry notes that are tart and sharp but also have a nice sugary sweetness on the back end. There is a nice woody oak note to the flavor as well, slightly earthy. This brew has an amazing sour fruit flavors with some nice fruit notes and a great woody balance. Mouthfeel is light to medium with complex flavors but a clean and crisp finish that is also dry. (5.0)(4.5)

I have yet to be disappointed by Cascade. Quickly climbing my favorite brewers list. There is a great combination of flavors with some nice woody notes. This is an amazing brew with mix of raspberry and apricot flavors. (5.0)

This is what American sours should strive for, don't imitate but do something unique and wonderful. Looks magnificent for a sour - apricot orange to amber with a dense, creamy head that is thin yet manages to throw down sticky lace. Aroma hints at tartness but comes through as bright peach and white wine with just a bit of lactic acid. The complexity unfolds on the palate. Yes, it's tart and lactic. Yes, it has some definite fruit character. But it seems to be integrated into the overall complexity of the beer. Surprisingly, the noyaux is more influential than the raspberry. While the raspberry seems to balance out the sharp sourness with a mild fruitiness, the noyaux lends an earthy, nutty almond note that lingers from start to finish. In between, there is plenty of nuanced sour and funk to keep the beer interesting. The brewing/aging process employed here clearly represents a brewery/brewer that cares about crafting something special. This is unique and represents everything that American sour brewers should be aiming to create.

From 2013 project, cellared well for a year. 2 finger very light cream head good lacing and full cap that lasts. Color is clear honey with lots of champagne like bubbles. Smell is phenomenal! As soon as cork pops it fills the area with Gueze like aromas. The taste is very powerful, big and complex with Granny Smith apples, cherry, raspberries, slight citrusy and possible apricot. Lots going on here! Aftertaste is full of tart funkiness. As it warms the sourness is more pronounced. I can’t quite get any barrel age flavors to come through but I’m sure they are there. Overall this is an intense full flavored sour that I shall try and get every year from now on. I just got 2014 project and I’m extremely exited to try it soon! 4.90

750mL (2013 project) into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden amber w/ a 1-finger head that settles to a thin film and collar. Bubbles are fine and soft, as is often seen with ales fermented with wild yeast.

Aroma is both tart and sweet, grainy and fruity. Great blend of contrasting elements in relatively equal amounts.

Taste is puckeringly tart, crisp. Green apples, sweet ripe berries, bready wild yeast. Again, great balance of different flavors gives this one nice complexity.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry with high carbonation that keeps it a little prickly.

Overall a very nice sour from Cascade, glad to have finally tracked down a bottle.

750 ml bottle, 2011 Project, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden apricot color, produces a thin white head, has nice retention and leaves a bit of lacing.

S- Lots of raspberries and skins, as it warms the noyaux aroma really comes out, which has a really interesting sweet, almost almond-ey character.

T- Sharp lactic acidity, lots of fresh raspberry and a hint of apricot, the noyaux is nicely present again, with some sweetness and almond flavors, it's really interesting and unique.

M- Medium-bodied, I wouldn't have guessed this was 9%, has a sharp acidity with a dry and tannic finish.

O- A damn delicious beer, so far I haven't had anything from Cascade that wasn't excellent, and this is up there with Sang Noir with my favorites from them, the use of noyaux is really awesome and unlike any other beer I've had before, this is a really great beer.

2014 vintage - 9.29% Poured from a caged-and-corked bottle into my 3 Fonteinen tumbler.

Cloudy vermilion body with coral highlights and an active yet lasting finger of white-smoke micro-foam up top. Fine even lacing; excellent retention.

Pungent sourness in the nose with white wine, raspberry-vinegar, and wild rose. Vaguely musty at times. Complex and difficult to parse.

Bracing palate entry subsumed by a moderately oaky tang. Flavors develop slowly but fully. Remarkably long finish, drying at first, but with an increasingly nuanced sweet and nutty aftertaste, haunted by the ghost of fruit and wood. The apricot meat notes come forward more as the beer warms, though this seems best served well chilled.

Somewhat thin yet almost oily mouth-feel - I didn't like it at first, but the tongue-coating sensation becomes more pleasant as the flavors are delivered to every last receptor. Quite warming, but not fusel.

Masterfully crafted, subtle and unique - one of the more thoughtful sour ales I've had the pleasure of trying; expensive, but I think you get what you pay for with this bottle.

Pours dark orange with some red hue. A small bubbly white heads that recedes quickly with no lacing.

Raspberry puree aroma with some strong lactic notes and some oak.

Again tons of jammy raspberry flavor. Don't get a ton of apricot although there is something fruity in addition to the raspberry I'm sensing. Sour lactic acid and drying oak on the end.

Medium body and carbonation.

In the vein of most other Cascades. Lactic sourness with fruit. Probably about middle of the road in terms of the Cascade fruit sours I've had. Some complexity is there, but raspberry overshadows some other flavor nuances. Still tasty.
