look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

hazy copper orange thin tan head. Nose has fair amount of ripe cherry, decent bit of wood, notes of red wine an lightly tannic, lactic acid in back, plum pits. Taste is more lactic, faintly acetic in back. Fruits are more muddled, cherry, dark grape, almost candied, and some plum pit. Note of olive in the lingering light to moderately sour finish. Body is a touch oily, light and well carbonated for easy drinking. Flavored aren't extremely bright, they have a fair amount of depth but slightly flabby. Decent stuff.

Bottle (2009)

Adam Avery's First Barrel-Aged Dinner
Stone Brew Co.
Escondido, CA

(Aged for 2.5 years)

Cloudy dark amber with a moderately sized khaki colored head. Nice retention and appropriate stick. Very pretty.

Complex, evolving aroma, especially as the beer warms. At initial temperatures, the yeast and lactic sour character is most present, but as it warms interesting notes of cherry, plum, and apple combine. Good oak presence as well, but I wouldn't name a particular spirit.

The flavor is a nice combination of funky yeast, fruit character, oak, and a moderate to high level of sourness. Complete, very drinkable, and the alcohol is remarkably well hidden.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation; dry finish.

Fantastic.

Bottle pour at the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a murky honey brown with a foamy white head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some malt, wood, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with only a mild sourness. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
