Tap @ Avery SourFest III. Orangish/red appearance with an off white head. Somewhat vinous, sweet malty, lightly spicy, a bit fruity, boring aroma. Some fruit in the flavor (grape, plum, citrus) but it was quite boring and didn’t have that many redeeming qualities.

draft. has the same Cabernet and Zinfandel barrel influence and strong esters of most of their other blended sours (froot loops, tropical fruits, maraschino cherry, canned pear) with some Chardonnay flavor, acid and effervescence, which seems to suit the body well.
