Draft at Jerry’s. Hazy yellow with decent, creamy, white head / Rich, elegant nose of banana, soap, citrus, and hay / Full body, creamy and sweet, but resinous and with good hopping and nice, bitter finish / Flavors of banana, pear, passion fruit, orange, coriander, hay, clove, and oak / A beauty. harry13 (11) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 26, 2012

Bottle. Celebrating my 23rd Anniversary on the job with a Nineteenth Anniversary beer. Pours with a fizzy appeal ... the carbonation settles into an interesting island in the middle of the beer. This drinks with a full-on Belgian bearing, fruity and creamy ... mellow pineapple, red apple, yeast. This is some delicious stuff.

Hazy light golden with a persistant white fluffy head. Lovely sweet abbey aroma of hay, sweet earthy cereal, a light herbal tone like lavender or basil or something...just really nice. Flavor was the same, sweet and pale-malty with a nice Belgo yeast spiciness paired with some sort of perfumy herbal action, without being too bitter, with hay and lavender notes. Really tasty. Not very dry...not a complaint, but not what I was expecting. Onionkid (390) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
22oz Bottle. Aroma is pretty mellow, but has fruit, spice, and yeast to it. The taste is of heavy yeast with some spice, a bit of fruit (some peach, banana, some others I can’t really tell) along with some notable pepper and again...yeast! A good, well bodied beer with a solid mouthfeel and a great finish. Smooth, carbonated and to the point. This is absolutely up there with the rest of Avery’s best! 8.2% abv.

This an excellent tripe,. Looks and smells light. The flavor is simple but easy to drink and tasty. Nothing out of the ordinary but done well.
