Thanks to b3shine for tapping me off to a special sour event at Dutch’s in Cincinnati. Getting a shot to try this for about the same cost as a bottle before later picking one up was a nice opportunity. I will definitely look forward to cracking it open with some other sour fans along with a few other Avery releases.

Aroma / Appearance - The rich brown base is the color of mahogany with icy muddy legs. Vinegar, raspberries, Cabernet, and a boozy base meld into the aroma of a soured bottle of wine.

Flavor / Palate - Tart red raspberries scour the tongue. Next a strong blast of vinegary red wine tickles the throat. Very drinkable without being too intense this mixes sweet and sour effectively. I’ve only tried a few of these but this one might be the best to date. I may have to start paying more attention to the series.

From a bottle. Aggressively sour, with a healthy dose of funk. The sweetness is balanced. Raspberry flavor is good.

Bottle. Poured a clear ruby color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

Poured into HF wine glass at 45 degrees. A- Pours a ruby verging on brown that looks brilliantly clear with a brown to off-white half inch head that very quickly fades to a ring around the outside of the glass. Minimal retention and lacing. S- Starts off with a big acetic blast that took me aback, but underneath there is a really nice jammy raspberry that makes me look forward to taking a sip much more than the initial vinegar shock. A very small tobacco/cedar note, maybe the barrel coming through? There doesn’t seem to be a ton of barnyard, maybe a little mustyness on the back end. As it warms the vinegar dies down and the raspberry really comes out to play. T- Wow- much better than I was expecting by the first shock of acetic on the nose. This has an amazing raspberry and cherry flavor that really blew me away, followed by a fairly weak acidity on the back end. Not overly complex, but very good. M- Very dry. Up front, the high, prickly carbonation is evident in your mouth, followed by a huge blast of cottonmouth. I’m left wanting some water in between sips, in addition to moistening my gum line with my tongue. Not the driest, but definitely a thirst quencher. The bad news is the high carbonation up front doesn’t lend itself to drinking fast. O- Meh. I was really impressed with the beautiful color (especially when you hold it up to light), smell, and taste, but the dry and thin nature of the beer didn’t leave me super excited to take another sip. It definitely loses some points on the drinkability aspect. Glad I got to try it, but not something I would actively seek out again.

12oz bottle, thanks to chuckaduck! Mostly hazy dark red color. Thin sort of grey / khaki bubbly head. Head fades to minimal. No lace really sticks. Awesome, big puckering sour taste. Very nice big raspberry, with a lightly spicy tart raspberry kick in the finish. Bigger body. Sort of lightly sticky in the finish, with a long tart raspberry and lightly spicy woody finish. Hint of chocolate. Some cab sauv type grape. Very enjoyable, aggressive, lightly spicy (in a raspberry way) sour.

Juicy flavorful raspberry jam and shart lacic yogurt tartness accompanied by nice oaky vinous notes that add a lot to this beer.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours a dark amber color with a fizzy off white head from a 12 ounce bottle. Aroma is very oak/wine/sour with some malt and caramel, very complex. Flavor is very sour but very smooth with some wine and oak. Finish is astringent but awesome. Mouth feel is dry and sour and carbonation is average. Overall this is a delicious beer.

Pours amber with a reddish hue and a small tan head. The aroma has caramel, cabernet, blackberries, dark cherries, raspberries and a really nice tartness. Very complex and as wine notes are noticed than beer. Medium body that has a sharp crispness to it and small amount of subdued carbonation. The flavor starts off with sharp tartness that has the berry / fruit notes on the aroma. There is a malt backing it, but its not as assertive as it is on the aroma. The finish has a smooth maltiness that comes in and reminds you its a beer and smooths out the flavor a lot. There is a spiciness that is somewhere between phenolic, hoppy and minerals, so not sure what’s contributing. Fruit sharpness lingers for quite a while. Excellent beer. I was debating about opening a beer or wine and this nicely met both tastes.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 25, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Murky deep copper pour with a fizzy tan head which disappears almost immediately. Aroma of wood & cherries. Tart right off the bat, gives you that pinch at the back of your jaw. Fruit is very present along with the funky sourness. Mellows to a nice winey flavor, with the barrel quite present. Pretty interesting.
