Poured from a bottle. Dark amber in color. Slight amount of head. Smells sour. Tastes sweet, sour, and very plant like. Has a very prickly pear after taste. After taste Stays in mouth for a long time. Light amount of lacing is present.

nimbleprop (4600) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2014
12oz bottle pours a hazy, burnt orange with some spitty, white head. Big pickle nose, pickled swiss chard, wood, fruit, but a lot of salt and herbs. Flavor is tart, boozy, heavy lime, cleaning fluid, candlewax. Just tartness to the face. Boozy finish too.

Sammy (8395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Great sour, some spice, with tequila in the finish. Mouthfeel felt like fruit pieces. Very drinkable. Tequilla nose.

Salmoniform (469) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Aroma is lactic, fruity Brett, sugar, acetic, papaya. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium blight body and high carbonation. Taste is tart sourness throughout with a watermelon finish. Overall this is great sour brew and tastes exactly like a watermelon jolly rancher :-)

zoucrew102 (468) - - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Sour pear aroma with notes of tequila and oak. Pours a bright pinkish copper color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Slick, bubbly mouthfeel with sweet peachy flavor followed closely with tart pear. Dry, tart finish with hints of tequila with the tartness melding on the palate well after sip is done. Good, lively sour with excellent balance of flavor.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
shimmering gold, thin white head. Peach and lemon nose, light cigarette, filmy and foamy. Very citric nose, grapefruit sourness and peach sweetness in good balance through thin, sour, sparkling finish.

solidfunk (3660) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Comes together well. Finishes with medium to high sourness, a little mouth puckering. Golden pour with ok head and lacing. Citrus and plum, I guess prickly pear though I don’t have a good idea of what that tastes like. Bottle thanks to Iphonephan at Epic Sour Tasting.

wchesser (1114) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pretty, pinkish gold. Very clear. Delicate floral nose with light oak and green quality to it. Tart, very clean with long finish of strawberries, ripe, dry pear, and presumably the prickly pear. Very complex-one of the more interesting sours from Avery in recent memory.

Bottle shared at DC Annual Epic Sour Tasting, thanks Iphonephan! Golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of tequila, light funky cheese, pears. Tastes of tequila, pears, citrus, tart notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Interesting.
