Bottle shared during RBESG 2014 - big thanks to Kernel rotbox. Pours clear amber with a creamy white head. Big booze-soaked berries, wood, bread. Medium sweet flavor with acetic berry burn, alcohol, old wood, raspberry. Full bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Warming finish with more acetic burn, ripe berries, sweat. Punchy stuff.

The taste is bitter, sweet, tart, tangy, red grape, tangy, vinous, sherbet, strawberry, jammy, some acidity, wood and some alcohol with a dry, fruity finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very nice. Good depth.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. hazed almost purple body with a lasting small bubble head. yep, this is gonna have some pucker factor to it. sour cherry is my 1st thought, some banana in the finish. like a tart grape with strawberry. man, almost feel it in the cheekbones then it fades. banana really gets stronger as this warms. sour cherry banana juice in a good way. a bit too sweet, but i like it.

Bottle shared by Brad @ Armin’s - thanks! Dark amber pour, clear with almost no head. Slightly sour nose. Sour taste - strongly acetic. Maybe this is lactic and oak? Just ok.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shamefully forgot who sent it to me :(. Pours hazy red amber with TONS of floaties, small beige head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, vanilla, funk, perhaps a touch of turpentine. Flavor is the same, fruity and woody, vinous almost bourbon-like barrel notes. Initially sweet, then dries out quickly to a very dry finish. Only lightly tart, with just a tiny bit of funk present and light astringence. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. ABV is quite well hidden. For me all sours of this class are held up to RR Supplication, and this one stands up quite well. Kudos to Avery!
