Vinous sour smell dominates the aroma. Taste is very pucker sour. Think the Granny Smith apples really bring it out. Balances well though with being so sour. Apple is subtle enough and sweet is well balanced with the sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Avery Sour Fest poured a hazy orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of apple, carmel, barnyard funk and citus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of apple, carmel, citrus and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry lingering tart finish.

12 months in an oak barrel, with Granny Smith apples added for the last 6 months. The Granny Smiths are very very sour, one of my favorite sours. A sweet beer overall, light appearance with orange; thin head. Be prepared for the initial hit of sour.

Tried this at Snallygaster 2013 in Washington, DC. Tart and fun - the granny smith apples did come through in both the taste and the smell for me.

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.

On draft at Avery taproom. Holy Sh$t!!! This was one awesome sour. Sour apple aroma/flavors pretty much dominate this entire beer, but Im cool with it.

DesertDevil (448) - 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.
