Aroma - Faintly sweet with a little tart background. Not overpoweringly aromatic
Appearance - Yellow and hazy. Typical coloring of an unfiltered wheat.
Taste - One of the absolute best sour beers I’ve ever had. It is very sessionable, has a tart and sour taste to it that isn’t overpowering at all with a sweet undertone. Very light feeling for a beer of this much flavor. The wheat is present but is covered up by the Bret.
Palate - feels great going down. Has perfect carbonation, and a small head on it that dissipates quickly.
Overall - I had this at the Avery Tap Takeover, and was super impressed. Was served as a 10oz draft pour in a 12oz belgian style glass. Asked the waitress what the best sour they had was and she recommended this. I’m glad she did! I’ll be going back, and I hope they still have a little left over!

I had this in the taproom in a 10oz pour. It was hazy, straw yellow color with little to no head. It was tart and citrusy. It was suggested to add peach syrup, which gave the beer a different twist bit subtle enough to keep the flavors.

Tasty, tap room exclusive. Barn yard, musty aroma. Biting sourness, almost like a lambic at the first sip. Probably the most different Avery brew I’ve ever had, I was really happy to see them attempt a sour. Ratman197 (14976) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2012

Flavors of wheat, straw, citrus and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry tart lingering citrus finish. Mep3222 (1577) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Nice vinous sour aroma. Taste is more tart than a standard Berliner. Carbonation is a bit light but a nice full flavored Berliner.

Tart and fruity. Pours a straw yellow with not much head. Aroma is tart, apple and yeast. Taste is very tart but not like a sour. The finish is dry and very refreshing. Really enjoyable. ineedbeer (2175) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at brewery.
Aroma is full of wheat with a light citrus and moderate lactic aroma. Light fruitiness and some barnyard funk.
Pours a pale, cloudy straw yellow with a medium thick white head with average retention and moderate lacing.
Flavor is very wheat forward with a light lactic acidity. Faint funkiness a with some nice tropical fruit and citrus notes. Low but present bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light bodied but very silky and soft with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a really nice Berliner with a bit less acidity than some of the others out there. A nice way to start my trip to Denver. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Hazy yellow pour with a fast dissipating white head. Aroma is fruity, sour and tart. A nice vinous grape notes in the taste. Pretty good stuff. ajnepple (6707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap at Avery. Golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of lemon zest, tart fruits, mild sour notes, rustic yeast and wheat malts. Similar flavor, sour and tart with light herbs and a touch of spice. Light body, crisp and smooth with a light puckering feel. Pretty refreshing.
