Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Ratman197 on 02-14-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A sultry blend from twelve Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, Eremita III is comprised of ales from five different creations in the Avery Barrel Aging Cellar. Ranging from a blonde saison to a black saison to a strong Belgian amber ale, they spent between 9 months to over 3 years in their respective barrels. Eremita III is a sour ale without the training wheels.

In house sampling of the latest version of their house sour series proved to be fantastic once again. Avery just knows how to make a beer, and sours are no different. It was a beautiful day in Boulder, and I started with one of these.

Dark and cloudy, with a small amount of head and slightly pungent nose. The sour hits you immediately, and you get the oak bite from the barrels, but this is softened by the Cab Sauv that it mingled with. If you're on site and like a good sour, this is a must try.

On-tap at the Avery tasting room. This 4oz sampler was $5 and the 10oz pour was $10. Dark brown and clear, a thin ring of foam clung to the edges of the small snifter. Dark fruits (predominately cherry) with some toffee and burnt sugar. Aggressive but clean sourness dominates. Some peach and leather come out as it warms up. The sourness just keeps coming. High gravity sours can be hit or miss, and Eremita III is a bullseye hit.

On tap at Avery Tasting Room poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, barnyard funk, cherry and tobacco. Mouthfeel was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of toffee, cherry, tobacco and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry tart lingering funky fruity finish.
