2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Avery Sour Ale Fest. Not crazy about this one. A strong medicinal presence in the nose and flavor really put me off to this one. A bit of fruity tartness, but not much in the way of raspberries. The finish is of stale bread and yeast.

Draught from Avery Sour Fest. Orange with thin white head. Aroma is spicy, orange and berry fruits. Taste is sour but smooth caramel and an oily texture. Ends kind of weird and flat, long, and wet.
