On tap at Capone’s. Lightly hazy yellow color with a smaller sized head. Fruity, pears, apples, and spices. Tastes of the same fruitiness, spices, caramel, and yeast. Some alcohol in the finish. On the sweeter side.

22, capped and foiled. Pours a cloudy medium gold with a scant loose white film atop. Mild green apple nose showing dust and hay. Fizzy medium body. Toast, caramel, green apples, dust, and hay on the mid palate. Mildly acidic finish. Not too bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Tap pours hazy pale yellow with lacy white head. Mild aroma of grainy must and fruit. The taste is kind of simple and traditional, very yeast driven indeed but with a healthy depth of grain and hops. A lot of fruits, banana, nectarine, some musty lemony sweet character. Very good lightly herbal and scarcely dry hay like hop, a bit of a green grass and musty hay with the carbonation bringing out a small amount of balancing sweetness. There is a mostly wheat centric spice from the grain giving a nice warming touch while the alcohol is mostly mute. Solid tripel showing some roots from Avery.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a moderate white head. Has a terrible smell - like old cheese. But a nice light taste with the subtle hints of sweetness that I expect from the Belgian styles.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy, hazy yellow with a small white head. Smells bready and lightly fruity. Taste is mild, fruity, with a bready kick, yeast and wheat dominate this beer. Light-to-medium bodied with a slightly wet texture and less than expected mouth-carbonation, Avery Anniversary Nineteen finishes with some slight bread-like characters.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow. Not much head. Nose is bubblegum, fruitiness, not much spice. Taste is much the same but with a hint of spiciness. A little sugary and thick on the body. Almost an hefeweizen flavor. Does not compete with the true Belgian triples and is just an average beer. The Avery anniversary beers continue to underwhelm-I’ve not found one since 14 that has stood out as an outstanding beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Hazy apricot body, thick puffy cream head. Estery nose with wet grass, clove, white grape, hints of bubblegum, and pear syrup. Nicely balanced. Dry, estery body with yeast bitterness, light fruits, clove, and hints of bubblegum. Floral with warming alcohol; vinous. Nice complexity and a pleasure to sip.
