notalush (4823) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Tap at Avery - lovely hazy gold pour with an impressive, thick, lasting head - the flavor is pretty much what you would expect - an aggressive, citric hop profile with a fair amount of brett - it works, though - the brett is fairly prominent in this, with a lot of horseblanket and barnyardy character, as well as moderate phenols and come pineapple character - the hops compliment this fairly well - the sweetness is a little higher than I like in my bretty beers, but otherwise a neat and tasty experiment.

That1Guy (1892) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Avery Sour Ale Fest. One of the definite highlights of the tasting. Tons of earthy, grassy, funky, spicy notes flowing through this one. Lots of horseblanket and leathery goodness in the flavor. Very, very cool beer.

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2009
Straw colored pour w/ viz carbonation and a big whtie well coated head that laces well. Good well coated palate. Flavor is a west coast IPA hints of tangerine w/ the grapefruit and grass a tiny bit of sourness comes through in the aftertaste. Aroma of graepfruit and grass w/ hints of an earthy dirt & horseblanket. Good but odd, not heavily funked.

Tap at Avery Brewing Tap room Pours out a gold topped with a cream head. Aroma was of light brett, bread, malts, and some floral notes. Taste more of the brett funk but a good mix of floral and pine hops. A light caramel sweetness helped round it off.
