3.36/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- Served a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast leaving only a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell-The aroma is heaviest of a toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Mixed with these aromas is a presence of citrus as well as some notes of an herbal nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and toasted malt base mixed with lighter fruit flavors of citrus and light fruits like pear. The fruit fades with some caramel taking the place of the dwindling fruit flavors. As the taste advances further flavors of a spice and a lighter herbal and floral nature come to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to its end where a crisp, mainly malty, and mildly Belgian flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the medium side to slightly lower side in terms of its thickness with a carbonation level that was quite average. Both were fairly nice for creating a very drinkable brew while still accommodating the malt and lighter fruit and spice flavors rather well.
Overall – A fairly easy drinking brew with a decent amount of flavor. It makes a rather good session, but overall is nothing too special.

Poured on draft at the fabulous Duckworth's on Park Rd, Charlotte, NC.
Pours gold with minimal lacing, initial blush of Belgian candy sugar folds into a lightly malted pale ale. This isn't something I'd seek out - but considering it's 5.2% - it's not a bad session beer. Maybe this is more to the liking of others - but I'm one and done with this brew. Big fan of the brewery though.

3.4/5 rDev 0%

Pours a lively amber color with a nice white foam head that dissipates quickly. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the edge.
Aroma leads with some grassiness and a bit of lemon zest, with a hint of orange. Floral hops. A little bit of roasted malts.
Unfortunately, there's not much going on in the taste. More of the grassiness from the aroma. Wheat. Sugary. Very subdued.
Mouthfeel is extremely thin and watery. Moderate amount of carbonation. Best thing I can say about this one is that it's refreshing.
Overall, A disappointing first experience from a brewery that I've heard good things about. I won't be giving up on Avery just because of this, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend this beer.
