Thanks to Choice City Butcher for stocking up on this-- Allowed me to try a 12oz bottle, months after Avery's release event. I poured into a tulip glass.
A -- Pours a gorgeous cloudy auburn color with a swirl of solid carbonation. Nice fizzy beige head of about one-half inch.
S-- Sourness, grape, blackberry, blueberry, Cab Sav. Slight oakiness.
T-- Wow. Bitter, tangy melon flavors. Hint of cantaloupe on the finish. The heavy alcohol is part of the experience. Not for the timid. You've got to love beer and red wine.
M-- Medium bodied and somewhat creamy. Well carbonated from the get-go and the carbonation is pretty relentless. Nice quick finish leaves you feeling puckered and wanting more-- but not too much more.
O-- I estimate this bottle had been aging for four months or so. That must have helped. I bet I would like this beer anyway, but it seems to be aging very well. Excellent. I tend to like Avery's experimental stuff, and this is another feather in their cap.

On tap for Churchill's Renaissance 2013 at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.
Pours a hazy copper with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a sour fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some nice sour flavors that make it easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
