Appearance: Pours a fairly clear cloudy rust.
Aroma: Funky sour fruit, acetic yeast. Fermented peaches.
Taste: Blush wine barrel. Tart vinegar funk and some metallic brett in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, astringent.
Overall: This beer has a familiar profile to some of the other wine barrel aged Avery Barrel-aged’d beers. Very complex.
A wonderful drinking experience. Pours a reddish orange with a nice stickiness. Quite funky, leathery, earthy. Not that sour but fuckin drinkable. An excellent beer. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Tap @ the Avery Anny fest. Pours a lightly hazed reddish orange with a small off white head. Nose holds tart red wine grapes, dry oak and some Brett funk. Palate is medium tart and quite vinous. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle generously shared at Woodshop - thanks! Hazy yellow pour with slight foam. Aroma is heavy, semi-rough sour/tart with some red wine type of influence. I get the wine barrels in the taste with a fairly thick and rough sour profile. Bit of tart in their as well but not really much funk. beastiefan2k (3921) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - AUG 27, 2011
12oz beer shared by Tim by way of JB, thank you guys. Pours a clear, glowing copper-orange-reddish color. Aroma is thin cherry sourness that is about all. Alcohol is well hidden though. The flavor has a little more substance but still pretty one-dimensional - thin cherry sour. Meh. I would drink it regularly if it were like $10 a sixer.

On tap at Avery Anniversary Party 8/7/11. Color is an amber orange with good carbonation and a thin tight head. Aroma is sour with brett notes of hay and barn. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is sour up front with a mild brett note, then it goes sweet and a light fruit taste of pineapple and pear. In the after taste the sour comes back up and lingers on a bit. Overall its a very good sour. Doodler (318) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a cola colored brown with a thin, tan head. Crazy nice nose of dark fruit and apricots. Mmmm...love sticking my nose in this one. Balanced flavors of barrel wood, sweet cherries. sour funk, straw and citrus. Finishes mildly dry. A very nice wild ale /sour and another winner from Adam and the crew Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2011
12oz bottle dated Feb 11, 2011.
Deep red pour with a small amount of tan head that receded into a ring. Smells woody, fruity, and very tart- delicious. Taste is very acidic with lots of oak and sour cherry. I really enjoyed this and am glad I was able to find it. JaBier (7871) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle purchased at Buckeye Beer Engine and shared at OBW on 7/13/11. Hazy copper pour with a thin beige head. Malty and caramelly nose with sour cherry notes. Malty and funky brett flavor with caramel malt richness before a sour fruit finish. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Copper beer with a cream colored head. Tart/sour aroma with malt. Sour, light acetic flavor with light green apples. Medium bodied. Sour/acetic notes linger with green apple and light woodsiness.
