4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This brew poured up a clear, dark copper colored body with a creamy off-white colored head with good retention and amazing lazing. Aromas of peppery spices, dark fruits (plums, raisins), and bread dough. Flavors of caramel, toasted malts, and a light hint of citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with a crisp, refreshing finish with a nice caramel flavor lingering about.

Great easy drinking beer, particularly for the summer. Nice full body and lots of sweet flavor sort of like a cider. I doubt I would drink this year round, but its perfect on a hot day. My girlfriend loves this beer as well, probably because its so fruity.

On tap, this comes out a lovely honey-golden color with a nice head. Aroma has fruity hints. Excellent flavor provides undertones of fruitiness, and is hoppy but not bitter though it has a bit of a nip. This ale is very smooth and a pleasure to drink.

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.

From a 12 ounce bottle purchased at "Keller’s IGA" - smelled like fermenting gim-shi, tastes wonderful (but not a lot of deepth). A damn good beer.

Copper color, small head and medium flow of bubbles. Honey infuzed aroma mixed with cherry, ending in a bready wheat. Medium mouthfeel leaning towards the heavy side for this style but definitely refreshing. A buttery flavor that favors the lightly toasted malt. Just enought hops to balance. A satisfying change from the world of overly bitters and watery pales.

Great tasting beer. Does not remind me of a Belgian. Reminds me of an APA. It is a good idea to drink this beer. It is satisfying.

Nice clear golden brown color. Two finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
Spicy citrus notes are all but overpowered by bubblegum scents. A tiny bit of malt pokes through.
A small bit of spice notes right up front give way to the bubblegum/citrus flavor combo and are then followed by a light hoppy bite at the end.
Nice and creamy with a great carbonation level.
Could be a good session beer. I would have a problem with the hoppy bite it has, but could probably get around it, as it is minimal.

This beer deserves a much higher rating than it currently has. 12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Still very fresh though. Poured out a hazy orangish copper color, with a thick, sticky tan colored head. Aromas are of a classic Belgian pale ale. Fruity, dense, aromatic. Mouthfeel is thick & rich. Flavors are of fruity bubblegum, slight hops bite mix well with the malts. A more than decent take on the Belgian style.
