gyllenbock (5027) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2014
From tap at The Monks Kettle during "United Sours of America" Hazy darker golden with a small head. Nice aroma and taste of apples, oak and fairly light funk. Not that sour but refreshing and nicely drinkable. I would not mind to drink this again.

DesertDevil (542) - Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Taster during an Avery tap takeover at the Attic. A pungent sour and fruity aroma with a ton of green apple, old oak funk, and high acidity. Slightly hazy mandarin orange. Mouth-puckering sour taste with tart green apple, lemon juice, and wheat. Very prickly palate, dry astringent finish. Good stuff.

HonkeyBra (3523) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Sampled at the taproom. Pours a bright golden color with a small white head. Big green apple aroma. Obviously joked about this, but itís intentional and kind of cool. Some notes of vanilla, caramel, cake and bread. Flavor is quite sour. Some mild sweet malt notes are present but itís mostly green apple sourness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, finishes very sour. Pretty fun.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2013
On tap at small bar... Cidery hued pour and topped with a creamy white head... Cidery acidic sour notes throughout. Green apple skin... Flavors are more of the same with a prominent sour note, fairly intense with just a faint grain note coming through late. Just shy of medium bodied with semi lively carbonation. Pretty nice but intensely sour.

Westmeister (1828) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On draft at Falling Rock during GABF weekend. Wrote this down as "Avery Sour Apple" but he descriptions here seem to fit the bill. Whoa this was an acid reflux inducer here. Pours a darkish unclear orange. Big green apple, tannic, oak, a little vanilla. Lots of tartness. Really pretty clean finish that is slightly dry. Really liked this.
