Bottle pour for Best Damn Night Of The Barrels held at The Beer Company in San Diego, CA.

Bottled 8/17/11.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki 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 malt, grain, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with a super sour fruity wine 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 good beer that is tasty and quite sour.

Decent sour, I sort of enjoyed this one. Beer is amber / brown with a white head, low retention, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is oaky, sour, cherry, red wine. Lactic mostly.

Beer is fruity with a tannic finish, nice oak, decent amount of fruit left in here. An interesting beer.

A - Head is quick to disappear. Dark beige/tan in color. Body is a deep root beer/brown color. No lacing since foam disappeared so quick.

S - A lot of red wine and sweet. Some earthy raspberries and lemon. Not very aromatic. Green apple.

T - So much earth and funk and not enough sour. Classic horseblanket, but way too much of it. The funk hits you in the back of your mouth. Little bing cherry flavor. Some alcohol.

M - Puckering and a little drying. Nice carbonation and a pretty good body.

O - A little heavy on the funk side and not enough sweet. Sour is a little lacking too. A nice little beer, but not spectacular.

Dark brown in color with an off-white head. A touch of vinegar on the nose along with lots of black cherry, red wine, and oak. Just a little bit of grassy and earthy funk. Pretty solid Flanders Red sort of aroma. The flavor is nicely tart with some balsamic vinegar notes along with a strong fruity quality. Nice cherry, grape, and raisin with red wine flavor, tannic oak, and a mild grass.

My man Kiddwhiz hooked this up, thanks man! Poured from bottle to Duvel tulip. Bottle dated 8/17/2011. The beer pours a deep rich black color with clack edges, only towards the end of the glass did I see a deep mahogany hue when the beer was thin, otherwise very dark. A nice 2 finger light tan head with good retention and lacing. The aroma is prevalent the second you crack the bottle and builds with intensity as the beer warms. Tart and sour upfront with hints of fruit: apples and a hint of cherry, a distinct oaky zinfandel tone that works well with the fruit. A hint of funk on the back end as well. Smells great. The flavor starts very much the same with an immediate sour tartness on the tongue. The apple and cherry fruit flavors are more pronounced and work well with the sourness. The oak zinfandel is less prevalent but provides a gentle tone that lasts throughout the beer. Finishes dry and sour with a lingering sour apple flavor. A thin caramel malt flavor and mild bitterness accompanies the more dominant theme of the beer. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this beer was a treat and a half. I wish I could find more to enjoy, extremely recommended.

12 oz. bottle, bottled 8.17.11,

A: Pours a deep red mahogany with a fizzy off-white head. Poor to fair retention. Good colour.

S: Red currants, blackberries, notes of acetic acid, balsamic vinegar.

T: Full notes of black and red currant, the Zin barrel is clearly there. Some vinegar, a lot like a Flanders Red in some ways.

M: Medium-high acidity, not cruel as the bottle states. Lightly tannic with some wood notes. Medium/full-bodied.

O: A very good sour beer from Avery. Fans of Flanders Reds and/or Zin will enjoy this. Big wine barrel character.
