COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This third iteration of Eremita is strong and dark with rich malt complexity, an earthy yeast profile, and mouth-puckering sour bite. A sultry blend from twelve Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, Eremita III is comprised of ales from five different creations in the Avery Barrel Aging Cellar. Ranging from a blonde saison to a black saison to a strong Belgian amber ale, they spent between 9 months to over 3 years in their respective barrels. Eremita III is a sour ale without the training wheels.

From tap at the Avery taproom. Dark mahogany with an off white head. The barrels are evident on the nose and I frankly couldn’t get enough of it. Medium bodied with balsamico and tart berries, endless finish.

Taster at the Avery taproom. Pours a hazy dark brown with an off white head. Dark fruit, red wine, oak and light funk on the nose. Med body with lots of oak, vinous notes, lactic acid, dark fruits and some lingering acetic acid. Tart finish with dark fruits and lactic acid. Great as usual!

Dark brownish black with a thin beige head. Lovely aroma of not-too-sharp white wine and oak barrels, along with some delightful "Belgianness" of sour raisins, rusty earthy dark toffee tones, and wine. Flavor is plenty sour, would probably be puckering if my palate wasn’t used to it. By as it is, I found it playful yet assertive. Very full flavor of sour citrus, some Cabernet, some light oak tones, dark Belgian yeast tones, and some earthy sweetness following through and rounding out the sourness.

Tap at 3rd Annual Boulder SourFest (06-02-2012). Tasted this side-by-side with I and II. Poured a dark brown with a small off-white head. Smell is muscat, oak, tannin, light funk, toffee, and cherries. Taste is sour grape, light funk, wood, with a lingering sour and dry finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Really sour beer and although very different from Eremita II, a tie overall in the series. Mouth-puckering deliciousness.

Ratman197 (15350) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2012
On tap at Avery poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, barnyard funk, cherries and tobacco. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of toffee, cherry, tobacco, barnyard funk and light citrus with a crisp dry tart lingering funky fruity finish.

(Draught) Pours a slightly reddish brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of cabernet, cherry, brett, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of cherry, caramel, pedio, cabernet, some citrus, and wild berries with a dry finish.

3.9
gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Poured a brown hue with moderate head. Smells incredibly earthy with a bit of ammonia. Tastes a little of cherry before the sourness blows away your palate. Delicious sour, wish I could get this in California.
