On tap 9/14/10 @ The Cheeky Monk. Avery only provided a small keg, and our waiter said they emptied it (about 40 pints) in about 10 minutes. Pours a very hazy brown orange, like a dark hefeweizen. Huge off white fluffy head when poured, but quickly recedes to leave a small cap on the beer throughout the drink. Left some lacing, not much though. To me it smelled primarily of cherries, but hints of oak come through, as well as raisins and pineapple. I just sat there with my pint smelling it for 10 minutes because it was so dang complex. Taste was the same way. I must have sipped that pint down over the course of 45 minutes, just trying to comprehend it. Taste has a complex hodgepodge of flavors, including blackberries, cherries, wood, currant, earthy maltiness, pineapple, banana, and clove. All these tastes came and went as the beer went from cold to warm, and were noticeable at multiple times throughout the drink. The finish is where the hoppy grapefruit and some wheat come through, leaving a perky, if not astringent, finish. Not in of itself a great tasting beer, but gets points for being complex to the point of being confounding.
