Dank u wel for all the help, Gast! It’s been very relevant! An expansive Flanders-esque blend as complex, assertive, an infectious as its namesake - although quite a bit more acidic and less injury prone. Proost! 67% ale aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, 17% ale aged in bourbon barrels, 8% ale aged in rum barrels, & 8% ale aged in Chardonnay barrels.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2012 Amazing sour. Funky blend of 4 different types of barrels. As this get warm its puckering sour. Amazing

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks arminjewell). Looks solid; a cloudy dark amberish brown with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and oaky with a moderate acetone presence alongside notes of vinegar. Tastes like it smells with a mild vinous presence as well. The acedone is fairly hidden when cold, but comes out as the beer warms and opens up. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied. Not good.

I can’t smell anything from this bottle. Nice sour brown taste to it. Very solid sour, but I’ve had many like it.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a clear copper with no head. The aroma is dark fruit, vinegar, wood. Thin mouthfeel with very sour vinegar, dark fruit, wood. Good.

From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear dark brown with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is super sour lemon vinegar with nice toasty chocolate malt and some dark cereal. The flavor is the same sour attack up front, moving to the dry chocolate malt. The body is medium and quite tannic with just under average carbonation and a long, very sour and toasted malt finish.

12oz bottle thanks to BeerandBlues2. Poured a light hazy ruby color with a small tan head. Aroma was notes of brown sugar, light acidic notes. Flavor was light dark fruits, tart sour cherries, touch of rum and bourbon notes in this one. Alcohol was nice and mellow, tartness was tasty. Light vinous notes.

"3500 baby! This sour ale was significantly sour and acidic, as most of Avery’s sours have been. Dark malts and all kinds of barrel complexity, all complementing the base beer. Some vinous notes from the red wine, and more bourbon presence than the others, though I’m sure we’d be able to tell if they were absent."

marcus (9216) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle from Tap & Handle. Pours dark brown with a tiny beige head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a magnificent sour brown flavor with a lot of substance and a lot of sour. Almost, but not quite puckeringly sour.

Hmmm....judging from the recent ratings seems to be some bottle variation on this one. Cellared at 50 degrees since release from brewery. Cap comes off with a puff....thick pillowy slowly fading head. Great carbonation. Sour wood, red fruit, red wine barrel on the nose. Tart red fruit (cranberry, currant), pineapple flavors, lemon tartness, and red wine elements. Delicious stuff.

Wow this one was pretty rough. Poured a ruby red color with a small off whtie head. Aroma was of super sour vinegar and rotting vegetables and bourbon. Falvo was pretty similar, mouth puckering, vinegar, odd saltiness and barrel. Just weird and not in a good way.
