3.2/5 rDev -18.8%
12 oz bottle, bottled on 3/31/10. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange with a fizzy off white head that quickly goes to a thin film.
The aroma is woody lactic pie cherries and red wine.
The flavor is sweet and tart pie cherries with a nice sour twang with some wood, red wine and maybe a little oxidation and band aid in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, a decent sour cherry beer. I wonder if I hung on to it a bit long though.

Thanks to duff27 for bringing this beer to share! Thanks Duff!
poured into tulip glass.
bottled march 31, 2010.
Appearance: medium red bodied beer with a small white head.
Smell: oak, vanilla, and sour cherries.
Taste: moderately tart cherries. nice oaky notes. A touch of vanilla. linger sour that is not over powering.
Mouthfeel: moderate body with low carbonation. gets syrupy as it gets to room temperature, but not distracting at all.
Overall: nice sour ale with cherries. i am really impressed with this wild beer. It showcases the cherries very well. Good job Avery's! I am becoming more and more of a fan!

Initial head turns to collar nearly right away. Murky dirty copper colored. No head or lacing after a bit.
Gave my nose a hissyfit. Wine note definitely come though, sour cherries all the way.
Woooo. Cherries in the forefront. "Oaky, vanilla." Mostly oak. Cherries melt into the wine characteristics.
Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation.
Good wine barrel aged beer here. Reminiscent of Gilgamesh. Boozil hit ya without warning. Avery.

12 oz bottle. Bought long ago for $8.99. Bottled March 31, 2010.
Appearance: Cloudy brown lakewater with a very short lived head and no lacing. Its not attractive, but it is an aged beer...
Smell: The cherries are very noticable and smell sweet like cherry pie more than tart. Other berry aromas, vanilla, and oak from the zin barrel. Obvious brett funk in there too.
Taste: Tastes much different than the smell. Smell is sweet cherries and fruit with oak, taste is strongly oaky, vinous, spicy, almost sharp. Lots of funk and some booze.
Mouthfeel: Appears pretty flat but feels adequately carbed. Smooth and a bit tannic on the end.
Overall: I think this was a success, but it could be better. All the flavors don't work perfectly, but its still a tasty beer.

3.65/5 rDev -7.4%
Appearance: Pours a cognac color with a very modest head that quickly fades to a ringlet leaving a few dots of lace
Smell: Unsweet cherry and vinous Zinfandel barrel elements; after two and a half years it is still somewhat boozy
Taste: Cherry and Zinfandel barrel flavors building in tartness through mid-palate; the barrel elements arrive, after the swallow, along with a building funky character
Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation; puckery
Overall: While an interesting effort, the flavors never really come together on my palate, as the fruit and the brett clash in the finish
