3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a mostly clear body, golden in color, and with some microfloaties. Dense, two-finger white head. The aroma is a tad alcoholic, with white sugar, pale malts, lemon and some banana, generic fruityness and some pine cones, grass and spices. It’s full-bodied and quite effervescent, not to an annoying degree though. Some metallic notes. Lightly warming, with some white sugar, even though it’s quite dry. Bitterness, spice notes, yellow apples and banana hints. Lasting bitter and lighlty warming finish. Pretty nice this one, although a tad warming I think. Easy to drink though, and quite tasteful. 130823

Clearish straw yellow pour with decent soapy white head. Fruity, some banana, vanilla, clovey yeast. Moderate carb with a semi-bitter lemon citrus dry finish. Pretty decent, but not amazing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, a good amount of caramel malts, some light fruits, and light hops. Flavor mainly of the spicy yeast and the light malts. Average texture. A really good interpretation of the Belgian style from an American brewer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Avery’s Nineteenth Anniversary ale pours a very hazy and peachy light amber. The Nose of the beer is a yeasty and slightly fruity blend of esters. Taste is a light but complex blend of apricots and a bit of orange zest. Body is fluid and full. Finish is light on the alcohol and just a bit bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled April 2012. I would really have liked to try this beer fresh. By now hops have faded significantly and bitterness is all that’s left. Malt is fighting the brave fight, so the beer is still drinkable and has some interesting flavor from yeast. The beer is wildly acidic for a Belgian style which is rather interesting and appealing in its own way.
