Bottle snagged at Mr. B’s on my trip to Denver. Apr. 7, 2014 bottle poured on July 25, 2014 as the first beer in a 3 beer BA sour ale tasting for myself to celebrate the last day of my 20s. Pours dark brownish red with very little light showing through and a small quickly fizzing off white head. Aroma is lightly sour, lots of chewy oak, vinous red wine, black cherries and currants. Flavor is lightly sour, big vinous notes, definite oud bruin influence, some black cherry, lingering oak, really nice. Medium bodied with nice crisp carbonation, juicy up front, and a lightly dry finish. This is excellent. It reminds me of Consecration, but is much lighter and easy to drink. My first sour from Avery and I am impressed.
