COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1st release in our new Tap Room Only series. Eremita I is a strong sour ale blended on 5/11/2011 from three different barrel-aged projects and ten different red wine barrels (Cabernet and Zinfandel). The oldest project has been in the barrels for over two years and the youngest is almost exactly a year old. The overall blend is around 9.5% abv, a moderate lactic acid bite with a hint of acetic acid flavor, and some mild farmhouse funk that melds well with the red wine aroma.

Incredible funk-fruit-winey-woody aroma. Amber in color with nice white head. Winey-woody with a tart funk...super complex.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ taproom. Hazy burgundy. Nice cap. Vineous character is sherry-like. Nice sweet, juicy body. Maybe it’s too sweet but it’s mellow. Higher level of acetic acid than expected. Balsamic. Has a wine vinegar character that is not altogether inoffensive, but is too simple to be yummy.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Muddy bronze. Accents of brett, wood and some light fruitiness on the nose. Quite sour with light fruitiness on the palate. A little bit of bitterness late. Interesting beer.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2011
draft. medium acid, lightly fruity and phenolic and waxy. bit fatty across the middle with spritzy and effervescent acid and carbonation. pretty similar to most other avery sour blends: fruity, waxy, oak-heavy with moderately dirty phenols.

zizzybalubba (1448) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2011
On tap for the GABF Tappings at the Avery Tap Room on September 28, 2011. Dark orange pour with a slight off-white head. Tart, slightly funky aroma. Beautiful sour flavor with notes of zinfandel and lemon. Finishes clean with no evidence of alcohol. Just a touch of vanilla on the finish. A wonderful sour from Avery.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Hazy amber - nose is of moderate oak and quite a bit of the wine character - lightly tart lacto and a hint of background acetic notes - round and full in the mouth - quite a bit of wine here too, a bit more of the zin than the cab - alcohol completely masked - more acidic than funky, with a bit too much acetic character for me, especially in the finish - a bit vinegary on the tail end - a decent sour.

wchesser (1197) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Nice magenta brown-looks almost identical to Fred’s Mom, but with considerably more carbonation. Nose is a lot of barrel and wine notes with some sour cherry funk. Taste is the same. Very reminiscent of the Dépuceleuse.
