Pour from a bottle thanks to Robert. Darkish red in color with not alot of carbonation. Flavors from the Zinfandel barrels present. Dark fruit and grape flavors up front. Good dose of sour tartness in the mix. Liked this beer for sure.

Aroma: Sweet red wine, caramel. Very funky.

Taste: Tart, tannins, dark fruit caramel and fennel seed.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, low carbonation.

Overall: Familiar to the series, but still very unique for a sour.

Bottle; Pour is murky dark brown / amber highlights - with a mild khaki head in this glass. The nose is excellent - funky, earthy, leather, cherry, vinous nose - the flavor profile has more of the vinegar, citrus rinds, sour cherry, earthy oak and vanilla elements - it is heavy on the vinegar but I enjoyed this one immensely.

Bottle from adnielson. Thanks aaron! Dark brown with a reddish edge and a small off-white head. Aroma is sour and loaded with sour cherries, tart grapey notes, some light wood, balsamic vinegar. Flavor is sour and just damn delicious. Lots of fruit, vinegar, wood, cherries, vinous notes. I fucking love these sour beers from Avery. Bad ass!

Draught at Beer Trappe. Vinegar. Cherry. Little bit of red wine. This is a puckery sour and well done as are all in this series.

hivemind (840) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2011
On tap @ RnH w Streets and James. Dark purple pour, magenta hue. Looks like a port wine. Cannot even get a head if I shake it up a little. Aroma is tart, taste is the same. Really nothing distinguishable but just a really well done sour with the perfect amount of mouth-puckeriness. Some grape. Guess that comes from the zinfandel barrel. Good sour.

jredmond (6651) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Draft at rattle with Brendan and streets. Pours a deep hazy red body with no head. Aroma is extra spicy, vinegary sour. Mouthfeel is light thinner than expected with notes of vinegar, sour fruit, and dry spicy tart.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2011
12oz bottle poured into snifter. Dark murky color with a soft beige head. Aroma is slightly sour with hints of cherry and mustard. Flavor is sour but not too tart, the mustard really kind of confused me a bit. Not too bad but not great either.

RSRIZZO (1905) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2011
12oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 42°. Color is a near black brown with good carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is slightly sour with the scent of grapes, a hint of oak and a light wine note. It has a lighter medium body with a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor of tart black cherry, a sweet grape taste, oak and a touch of raisin. After taste is tart and dry with a touch of wine coming out. Overall its a very good brew with an extremely complex flavor palate.

bottle thanks to Ratman197 and my 100th Sour Rating!. dark brown pour with a small tan head with lots of tiny bubbles. leather, funk, oak, red wine barrel nose with a touch of lactic acid. medium body - big round bright sourness hits the mouth with zinfandel barrel notes, grapes, pedio and lactic acid. vinous throughout. lactic dry immensely tart finish that makes your head sweat a bit. light cherry on the back. another great sour from Avery!
