Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The first release in our Tap Room Only series, it’s a strong sour ale with a moderate lactic acid bite, a hint of acetic acid flavor, and some mild farmhouse funk that melds well with the red wine aroma.

Had this at the brewery on 9/24/11.

Served in a mini snifter (right on). The beer is vigorously carbonated and readily replenishes its foamy head. Leaves really nice lace for a sour. Slightly hazed, garnet in color.

The aroma is of really tart cherries and green apple skins. Acidic.

There's a nice lactic bite to the flavor, as well a a decent amount of sour cherry. Tart with some caramel on the finish.

Strong carbonation with fairly prominent alcohol heat.

Really nice beer... glad it was my first pick upon stopping into the brewery tap room.

Note: this was listed as Eremita III on the board. I'm assuming it's the same recipe.

Pours a rusty brown, clean and clear at Avery tap room. Small head, but poured that way

Puckering aroma, but not nasal burning. For me, sours can be offensive. This one flashes hints of sourness, but I wouldn't call it offensive. Tart dark cherries, some wine tannin.

The flavors are muffled by the feel. The dark cherries are probably the dominant. Some wet wood. Nice earthy spice. The sourness takes the cake without being a tongue killer.
