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.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange almost red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, dough, funky earth, slight lacto, lemony notes into a bit of tart fruits, some bretty, yeasty notes as well. Taste was a mix of tart lemon, lacto, some bread, biscuit into a bit of caramel, some yeast into some doughy notes with some nice funky, earthy notes, finishing fairly tart. Pretty nicely done.

Dogbrick (9460) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
Sample at the new brewery. The beer is a clear dark orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, tart fruit and yeast. Light to medium body with flavors of funky fruit, oak and earthy yeast. The finish is moderately tart with an oaky and citrusy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Oaky woody lactic aroma and taste. Maybe 5 of 10 sour. Dry finish. Not sweet. Full flavored, but very drinkable not overly sour, sour. Quite nice. Lighter color, like a soured golden (Belgian pale ale apparently). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Weak odor. The taste is good. Typical Belgian beer. Decent aftertaste. An okay beer to drink but not much more. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ 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? i’m 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 won’t drink is karma, not bad karma, but regular karma. regular karma is bad, bad karma is good.

douglas88 (7252) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2011
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.
