On tap at Essex Ale House. This is my first Avery sample and I must say I was pretty pleased. Poured into a small snifter glass, the golden orange colored quad produced a nice fluffy white head that hung out for quite some time before breaking down into some nice glass coating lace. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and sweet. Resembles apricots and pears a bit. Flavor is a huge, juicy gulp of red grapefruit juice. Nice clean and balanced hop flavor balances out the sweetness. While this flavor is delicious, I was a little disappointed that I couldn't find much else in there. I was hoping for some depth and complexity for a quad. Body is full and smooth with a nice scrubbing carbonation. Not a bad beer at all. It is quite delicious but I was just hoping for a little more.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a brownish orange. Beige head is fairly thick.
Smell is complex. Dark fruits. Brown Sugar. Malt, yeast and spicy smells at the end.
The taste is similar to the smell. Dark fruits, malt. Some oak flavors as well. Very sweet though.
Not enough carbonation. Too flat and syrupy for my tastes.
Great quad that is only hurt by its excessive sweetness.
