BVery (6622) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Excellent sour. Dirty orange pour, minimal head. Nose is apple and cherry. Medium palate. Great taste of mild brett, very mild/controlled tart and sour elements, cherry, some wood, and grape. Really good beer, and very approachable for a sour.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours a reddish-brown with a medium beige head. Funky aroma with notes of cherries, wood, brett and a hint of vanilla. Great flavor of cherry, vanilla, brett, oak and zin. Just slightly tart from the brett. Nice woody finish.

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a sour cherry apple aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a sour cherry and vanilla with a nice lingering lighr dry finish. Hides alcohol well, a very good sour ale from Avery.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle:   Reddish caramel, thin spritzy off-white head, fizzles out quickly, sparce lacing.   Tart fruity nose, cherry skin, some wooden aspects too.   Tart unripened fruitiness on the tongue.   Mild sweetness, somewhat dry, with a well hidden 9.59% ABV.   Smooth mouthfeel, moderate body.   This one certainly tastes real, unlike many other examples.   Overall its a tart lightly sweetened unripened like fruity (cherry) flavor with a background of some woodiness.   Good stuff!

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ Avery taproom. Red-orange, a dark but warm hue with slight haze and a nice glow. Not much to no head. Aroma is maturely funky. Sour cherry, including skins and seeds. Drinkable. I can’t believe it has as high an ABV as it does. Excellent wood character is dry, mellow, and mature. Not too acidic. Has a solid Brett + cherries character with undercurrents of funk.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
They pulled this out at the tap room - maybe not retired? Light bronze. No head. Woody, with light tartness and a little bit of an orangey note. A little balsamic accent comes through in the finish.

Geokkjer (5887) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with an off-white head. Aroma of sour berries, funk, vinegear and yeast. Flavor is sweet and sour with some funk and malt. Medium body, average carbonation. Nice sour.
