3oz sample at the Spagio Cellar's October Beer Social--Adam Avery is present, and laments that he must leave his "Demons of Ale" line in the car due to silly Ohio ABV laws.
The color is copper with a golden orange hue. The warm and toasty nose is comprised of orange and lemon peel, cloven spice, honey and yeast. The flavor profile follows the nose rather closely.
The mouth offers some slight complexity, is bright on the front palate, then bogs down a little in a syrupy morass, then a surpising nip of alcohol for a 5.2 ABV beer on the back.
Certaintly not a bad brew--I haven't sampled anything from Avery that I would not gladly imbibe--but this one seems some what lightweight and lacking in character, a bit off balance. Not one of the best from Avery.

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.

This isn't going to be real inciteful. Not much I have to say about this beer. It was the only one on tap that I hadn't had, soooo.... Typical belgian yeast and crispness in the taste. A little bit of amber ale flavor. Tastes like a belgian version of New Belgium's Fat Tire. There you go.
