December 30th, 2011 - The second in the noble dynasty of Avery’s Erimita line was by far the most expensive sampler in the batch, served gently from behind the bar. On the walk back to my table someone gave me a knowing nod, and another patron warned me that "good things were to come from the Erimita." I never knew the first in the family, but the Erimita stands out amongst the other Avery brews in flavor. The aroma is tight and punchy, stuffed with the scent of tangerine and sharper than a single-edged razor. Orange peel, apple sauce, clove, and mashed, saccharine peaches as well as a solid chunk of apricot round out the smell - and all of these are found again in the flavor. The palate is light, but buoyant with bubbles, and overall the Erimita is wonderfully fruity, natural and yet sour and puckering, and above all memorable. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2012

@ Avery Sourfest 2012. Hazy rustic copper, no head. Very sour aroma with notes of plastic chemical, funky herbal yeast, and sour oak. Flavor is a little too sour for my taste, with a drying herbal sour tone that reminds me of coriander and/or hibiscus, along with oak and bacteria.

Tap at 3rd Annual Boulder SourFest (06-02-2012). Really glad they had this one. Poured a hazy peach/apricot color with little-to-no head with good lacing. Smell is funk, peach, apricot, citrus, straw, pear, and hints of white tine. Taste is much the same with flavors of peach, apricot, funk, lemon, oak, and light lacto. Damn good apricot sour with hints of wood melded perfectly into the flavor, finishing tart and dry. Very sour and the 10% ABV is not noticeable at all. Well-done! craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2012
