3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a bottle for $10.99 (ouch). I’ve been game to try one of these Avery barrel aged beers ever since I liked Sui Generis so much. Bright yellow color, hazy. Smell is a little stinky, grapes, wine, and booze, ehhh. The taste was nice, chardonnay, grapes, wine, slight booze, barrel, brett, a nice melange of flavors that in my opinion did not quite match the smell which was good. Overall I thought this was a good beer but my only complaint about the Avery barrel aged sours is why can’t they make one that is low ABV? I think they are all 8% and up.

A tasty an sour beer. Wine notes with grape show up along with oak but the brett provides some sourness and funk that tempers it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A steady pour into my Bruery tulip produces a two finger thick, pale, off-white head that recedes somewhat quickly. The beer is a pale amber / gold color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright yellow-gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells funky, musky, with lots of concentrated sweet / floral grape notes. A lactic sharpness, perhaps a hint of vetegal character, perhaps a hint of funky, musky baby vomit, some toasted oak character, and lots of white wine character that leans towards mineral, touches of tropical fruit, a touch of green fruit character, and a definitely peppery oak character. There is also a soft, backing pale toasted cracker like malt note in the finish that plays a supporting role.
Well carbonated, even fizzy, and surprisingly light bodied, with lots of grape like flavors. There is a lot of funkiness from the muscat character alone, but there is also a mustiness here, as well as a touch of musky, phenolic notes from the wild character; dry, mineral like, touches of star fruit, and lots of just plane funky muscat wine like notes. The oak character plays a supporting, but quite noticeable role here with flavors of toasted oak, light spicy wood character, hints of buttery notes, and perhaps sa touch of soft vanillin. This definitely has a green character to it, definitely under-ripe fruit, but also a touch of vegetal character.
Not bad, I definitely like the expressive muscat character that this beer has, but somehow it just is a bit flat (despite the ample carbonation) somehow. Definitely worth trying, but I was hoping for quite a bit more from this beer.
