32oz growler thanks to George. Pours a relatively clear mahogany with almost no head. Not flat but with just enough carbonation to sustain the mouthfeel. The nose is raspberry and cherry with some lactic sourness and a fair amount of woodiness. Sour up front in a lactic way but not overy acetic. No real vinegar notes. Body is well rounded with notes of caramel and sour cherry. Finishes with just a touch of bitterness and lingering raspberry sourness. The best sour I’ve had from them. Quite nice.

Avery Sour Ale Fest. Well, it was at least a bit sour. Run-of-the-mill sour ale. Got some like fruity sour flavors, but nothing extremely special. Finish gets really sweet and cloying, but overall ok.
