Bottle from tasting at Manderes.

A - Dark copper, medium head, dissipates quickly.

S - Cherry, with light candi sugar.

T - Dark cherries, cand sugar, and citrusy hops.

M - Oh so smooth, well balanced.

D - More please. Interesting beer, Vinny and Adam fight a death match with collaboration.

Poured entire 22oz. into oversized tulip. Lovely cloudy amber, a little sediment.
Smelled the way I want my strong belgian ales to smell, sweet malts, belgian yeast.
Taste and Mouthfeel were outstanding very smooth/balanced drink, the best domestic belgian style I have had so far.

The Closest I can get to a Russian River for now and I loved it, i would have another if I would of bought two.

Batch 6

A: Pours a beautiful brownish amber with light white head that creeps at the edges of the glass.

S: White grapes and estery floral notes that explode from this lovely gem

T: A lovely blend of very light cinnamon that falls in the background of apple, pears, and gorgeously blended fruits. 

M: Welcomely dry and holds up extremely well in the flavor department

O: This is a phenomenal beer that i cant help but keep buying. And i cant wait to try the Batch 5 that has been cellaring in my basement for over a year. A flavor bomb that does nothing but please my taste buds. Highly recommended.

From Batch #2. Pours a clear amber color with a fluffy, fine beige head that fades at a medium pace to a nice coating and lacing.

Funky, fruity, malty nose. Alot of different stylistic notes come together in the smell. Grainy, yeasty corn, mango/papaya tropical fruitiness and malted milk combine for an olfactory overload!

Taste is a Belgian yeast explosion! Brilliant use of bittering and flavoring hops to provide a clean finish to this wonderful concoction. I also get a bit of sugar-toasty sweetness in here. A top notch beer. While the Avery Salvation is good, this beer is great. Makes me want some Russian River stuff even more now.
