Tap @ the brewery. Pours golden orange with a frothy off white head. Nose is fairly tart with some citrus and barnyard funk, a very interesting brew.

Weak odor. The taste is good. Typical Belgian beer. Decent aftertaste. An okay beer to drink but not much more. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings

one of those happy surprises. darkish body that is mostly brown with a thin head that does not last. the brettish nose that is both disgusting and one of the most inviting at the same time. promises a band aid or tart greatness. ahh yes, tart greatness. how can something that tastes like leather, blended with citrus and grapes be good? iím just glad it is. brett notes linger long after in the finish. now i have to clarify when i say the only avery beer i wonít drink is karma, not bad karma, but regular karma. regular karma is bad, bad karma is good.

On tap during GABF at Falling Rock. Not sure about the Belgian Ale listing- this is pretty wild. Pours a copper/red color with no head. The aroma is sweet oaky, fruit, some light yeast. The flavor is very tart with loads of vinegar, berries, earthy dusty tartness, low carbonation, despite being quite tart very mellow. Enjoyable.

Tap @ Avery. Beautiful, dark florescent orange appearance with a white head. Brett, lots of citrus, belgian yeasty, moderately sour aroma. Actually fairly sour, tart oranges, brett, mild funk, belgian yeasty flavor with a moderately sour, bretty aftertaste. Pretty nice brew.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy copper/brown with an average, frothy off-white head, short retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is funky, barnyard yeast with tart grape notes, light oak, and spicy phenols. Flavor is tart fruit and funky yeast with vinous notes. Medium-light body, low warmth, and medium carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
tap at the brewery - Pours orange with a mild tart aroma that includes just a hint of citrus. The flavor is tart with some of that barnyard funk. What got me was the really freaking weird finish. I kept sipping it wondering what I was tasting. Itís very earthy and not in a good way. I once had one of those deliberately bad jelly beans (harry potter things) thatís "dirt" flavored. It tasted like potting soil smells. yeah, this finish reminded me of that for some reason. Not good.
