In short: A golden ale with plenty of vinous barrels and a nice barnyard/farmhouse character. My type of wild ale. Great beer.yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 27, 2011
How: From a bottle at Extreme Beer Fest 2011, Night Of The Barrels
The look: Cloudy dark golden-amber body topped by a small off-white head
In long: The nose is very barnyard and with a bunch of wet barrels. I really loved that nose. Taste packs a lot of cereals but doesn’t come with the sweetness sensation that plagued all other wild/sour Averys I’ve had before. Some funk, earthy fruits, a whole lot of wet wood barrels, vinous notes, noble rot. Finish is somewhat dry, tart and a bit acidic. Sourness level is actually relatively low for a Wild/Sour ale, this is definitely more wild/barnyard than it is sour. By far the best wild/sour Avery I’ve had, they need to make this one a regular. Ok, so this beer abv is 9.91%. That’s precise. I find it amazing that we can make a beer and know exactly the % of alcohol the 0.01% and yet despite all our technologies we are still unable to make a car mirror in which objects appear exactly as far away as they really are.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an orangey golden with a slight haze and a small off-white head. Sweet and tart berry nose - quite sophisticated. Medium body, very dry and tart, again berry-like. Dry, sulphurous finish. 270411 MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2011
tepid tan-red, thin white ring. Nose is Brett in sour wheat, almost Berliner weisse, bit synthetic, watery sugary fruit. Flavor is overly sweet, brett, lightly harsh plants and plastic in finish. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
355mL thanks to beerandblues2. Missed out on this at a tasting awhile back and have been meaning to get a hold of this one. The pour is a hazed peach with a thickish, sheen, off-white head. Webby lace. Aroma is funk, cardboard, cherry, light bourbon, boozy cherries, tangerine, ice cream. Odd fruity nose ruined by cardboard. Taste is lemon tart, cardboard, vinegar, spices, fruity grape tannins, other oddities that are hard to place. Chalky palate. Very complex, but not particularly a good blend. A decent sour attempt.

Bottle shared by BeerandBlues2: Pours a clear orange amber with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh vinous oaky nose with light fruity notes and tart complexity. Starts with good fullness and finely-dissolved carbonation with a light malty sweetness and complex vinous tartness before a slightly drier and bitter finish with some lingering tart fruitiness. Well-balanced, true to style, and hides the alcohol fairly well. Seems like it should age well. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2011
Smoky brett nose with light plastic, some pepper and horseblanket. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly tart and lightly bitter, lots of peppery yeast, some phenols, some light berry. Astringent finish.
