Couldn’t wait any longer to open this. Opaque, reddish plum pour, orangey highlights. A little tan head. Huge oak tannins on the nose, cabernet grape, hint of raspberry, citric zest. Big tartness up front gives way to blackberry, raspberry, musty basement, chewy root. Massively dry finish. Complex and challenging.

All of the first 10 from the series were shared by craftbeerdesign. Mostly clear brown orange pour. Tart and sour red/tannin nose. Sweeter, tannic, fruity, lemon a bit, wine grape skins. Super crazy dry with a long tart finish. REally nice.

Tap at Sourfest. Darker than I expected in the pour. Medium head. Aroma was more lacto sour with some belgian spices here. Sourness in the taste was again more lacto and some deep dark malts. From the wine barrel? Mild mouth feel as most Avery sours.
