12oz brown bottle (no freshness date), releases a dirty peach with some bright copper hues. Pours a 3 finger head that's white, foamy, and sticks all over the glass and leaves its trail as you drink it down. Good retention. Watch out for the dark dregs in the bottle.
Soft floral plum in the nose, with suggestions of honey, white pepper spiciness and bell peppers.
Light-ish body, crisp, with an even feel about it. Nutty, yeasty, wheat-like tannins, with a toasty caramel flavor, but then it's gone. Some sour / tartness melds with a moderate watery rind bitterness with hop leaf notes. This part is actually quite quenching and more-ish at the same time. Dry tannic finish is slightly overwhelming, and a bit of a mood killer.
Too many tannins for me, and not enough sweetness / malt profile to balance things out. If this is Karma, when do I get the balance?

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.
