BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2008
GABF 2008 @ Avery. This was fantastic. Hazy orange color with a decent amount of head. Hops and a funky faintly citrus barnyard with a sour hint on the aroma. Exceptionally bitter body with the funky brett finish from the 15. This was a great way to start of the festivities at Avery (and for GABF for that matter!).

Tap at brewery, GABF ’09.
Pours a deep cheddar orange with a woodsy, cedar orange nose. Flavor is a nice musty grapefruit with cedar chunks. Coating mouthfeel. An interesting experiment that works.

That1Guy (1882) - 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.

(Draught during GABF week at the brewery) opaque golden orange pour, thick creamy lasting head. Nose is big and floral, brett, and oranges. Taste of florals, sweet malt, pine, nice balance, oranges and peaches. Slick mouthfeel, very soft carbonation, so creamy and so good.

TopTekeUWM (25) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2009
2009 GABF Taproom. Beer poured a yellow/straw color with a thick white head. Floral and citrusy hops on the nose and in the taste. Mouthfeel was of moderate carbonation and big on hops versus malts. I didn’t get much from the bret.

BuckeyeBoy (2624) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2009
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.

MIBRomeo (2537) - 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.
