UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 Slight sour-lactic aroma. Nice amber-orange hue. Flavors are sweet and sour...a bit of cherry with a defined port character....unbelievably good! Notes: Brewery visit during ’09 GABF

Tap @ Stone Sour Fest 2009. Pours a beautiful sunset orange with a thin off white ring. Nose of Brett, citrus fruits and tart lychee. Flavor held lots of tart fresh citrus and a touch of brett on the finish. Brew finished crisp with a faint sweetness at the end.

First beer sampled during gabf week 2009. Draft from taproom. Great way to kickoff this party. Awesome brew with a hint of Brett sourness and the saltiness of a bw matched with port undertones.

Tap today at Stone Sour Fest. took me a while to get to this one, but damn it was worth the wait. Pours cloudy orange with a 2 finger tan head. Nose is sweet, and tart and tasty. Taste is sweet, tart, funky, robust and rich with a wonderful full mouthfeel.

On tap at Avery poured a hazy amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of horseblanket, cherry, light oak, light carmel and light vanilla. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a tart finish. Flavors of brett funk, leather, fruittiness, oak and hints of carmel and spice with a crisp lingering tart funky finish.

Avery tasting room GABF week 2009. Dark gold. Very winey with the brett not overwhelming. Tart and also a bit sweet. Deep rich undertones and too easy to drink. My favorite from the tasting room.

Draught at Avery, GABF week 2009. Pours amber with an average, rocky white head, somewhat diminishing with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel, straw), average hop (flowers, perfume), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of plum, date, cherry, port, and wood. Medium bodied, mineral texture, average carbonation, and a sour finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and sourness.
