golden with amber tones, kept a thin layer of white foam for a good 10 minutes now (clingy as well), being fed by the carbonation in the glass, looks pretty bubbly (with small bubbles) - inviting
bready hops, citric ESB ? some underlying sweetness of malt at the end, I also detect a little isopropanol smell when I really concentrate on the odors, it is masked by the citrus mostly which causes the taste buds (well at least mine) to get active, very nice nose here
lighter body than I expected but only slightly detrimental imo. has a nice crisp carbonation signature, a hair under a soda fizz and it sort of lingers on the toungue for a little while, the tart notes in the nose are not apparent until the late aftertaste which is a blend of the aforementioned citrus and some hop bitter (not strong). later on in the glass you get more of that funky belgian yeast thing happening in your throat, enjoyable.
using belgian material doesnt make you belgian. none the less this is tasty if not very american tasting aside from the yeast profile. this is light enough to drink anytime. the belgian funk almost comes out in the nose and taste but it doesnt seem brought to the fore. regardless, this is a tasty beer worth picking up if you see it, probably not worth your while walking the earth for it though, grasshopper...

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.
