3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewery.
Pours a deep mahogany with a nose of cedar cherry chips. Flavor is flat cherry (sour) powder. Tingly but thin on the tongue. Not bad, but one is enough.

on tap at the Avery Tap Room during GABF week on 9/25/09... pours a light brown... sour funky nose... medium body with a touch of caramel, some dryness to it and a nice tart finish. I prefer this to the regular Old Jubilation any day.

I hope this review is in the right place, it was listed as Oude Deux at the Avery taproom. I was told it is Old Jubilation fermented with a rochefort belgian yeast strain. It was the same color as Old ju but tasted like chocolate with fruity notes. Too bad it upset my stomach really bad, my stomach just doesn’t like certain belgian yeasts. The drinkability sucked big time for me. Give me regular Old Jubilation any day.
Serving type: on-tap

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
GABF 2008 @ Avery. This one looked exactly like a cola. Light fizzy brown body with an effervescent faint head. Light barnyard funk and a huge vinous oak character. The body was much the same with a delightfully funky flavor and a blessedly bourbon free oak experience. A very smooth mouthfeel and a faint sourness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 2008 GABF week @ Avery. Unfiltered brown colored body with a thick foamed tan head. Nicely dry and dusty in the nose... dusty cracker malts, uncooked dough, a little raisin/date/brown sugar abbey yeast character... flavor is dry, tannic and woody up front - some caramel and toffee in the middle, a mild sweetness (brown sugar, maple, sweet tobacco) in the finish. Crisp and fresh tasting, chewy and rich over the middle. Solid stuff. This is the Avery I like.
