3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orangish color with white head. Fruity, yeasty, estery, spicy aromas. Yeasty, plum, spicy, apricot flavors. This was one of my favorite beers when I was first getting into craft beer, 8 years ago. It has been at least 4 years since I last tried. It has a stronger plum, apricot, fruity flavor than I remembered. Still enjoyable, but not as good as I remembered in 2006.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-7-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- Served a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast leaving only a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell-The aroma is heaviest of a toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Mixed with these aromas is a presence of citrus as well as some notes of an herbal nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and toasted malt base mixed with lighter fruit flavors of citrus and light fruits like pear. The fruit fades with some caramel taking the place of the dwindling fruit flavors. As the taste advances further flavors of a spice and a lighter herbal and floral nature come to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to its end where a crisp, mainly malty, and mildly Belgian flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the medium side to slightly lower side in terms of its thickness with a carbonation level that was quite average. Both were fairly nice for creating a very drinkable brew while still accommodating the malt and lighter fruit and spice flavors rather well.
Overall – A fairly easy drinking brew with a decent amount of flavor. It makes a rather good session, but overall is nothing too special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear dark amber body with a quickly dissipating head that leaves a very thin light tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is bold and fruity with papaya and pear initially with strawberry and banana beneath it.
Taste: The flavor matches the aroma very well, papaya up front with light strawberry through the mid. Some phenols towards the back with a dash of vanilla and banana. Very mild and enjoyable.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a very nice beer, one I would like mid-afternoon as something light and slightly sweet. This is soft and enjoyable, very fruity.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 For an Avery I’m dismayed at the reviews. My guess is most people haven’t explored farmhouse or sours. It exhibits the wild yeast as well as any sour or farmhouse I’ve had, yet it is very tame and not vinegar. It will, however bite your tongue and make you pucker up some. I love it, and I really suggest testing all the farmhouse and sours this time of year. I had a dogfish that sizzled it was so tart, the Peche. Oh enjoy the brew friends, its a mind full.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a amber-orange with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, ripe fruits, funk, bready malts, apple juice, and light grassy hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a somewhat tast Belgian Ale that is pretty easy drinking.
