4.4/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours murky reddish brown with a minimal head and a few spots of lacing. Looks more like a red wine than a beer.

Lots going on in the aroma. Lots of tannins and oak, but I get a distinct buttery chardonnay smell as well. Some caramel notes and also faint traces of a sweet spirit most likely the rum.

Again very complex, but with different elements than the nose. Rich caramel and chocolate stand out. Tannins are just as strong as the nose, but I get way more of the cab presence in the flavor. Heavy oak and tannins make this one a bit harsh (in a good way for me, but dry red wine haters may want to stay away). Rum and bourbon kick it up just a notch and are really background players adding some complexity rather than standing out on their own.

Medium bodied with carbonation levels on the lower side which helped support a lot of the vinous flavors.

Really came together as it warmed and the deper into the bottle the more I enjoyed it. Very complex flavors with different things hitting through the process of warming. May be my favorite Avery sour I've tried yet.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a JP Sobrehumano snifter

A - Tawny brown, turbid, caramel, rubyish

N - Lemon rind, grape vine, sugar and spice, brown bread, very tart cherries, champagne, macerated oranges, grapefruit, brown sugar, fried apples.

T/M - Competing flavors of super tart cherries and peat, some brandy-ish qualities, port, rolls over the palate, velvety mouthfeel and an alcohol burn in the finish; stone fruits, grilled peaches, it's a hefty sour. Teeth chattering puckering.

D - Complex, wonderful, drink a shitload if you got it.

From Chris. Thanks!

A: An almost lifeless mahogany with red/purple edges. Head fizzes out quickly. Could be a lot more enticing.

N: Deep oak, acetone, vinegar, and cherry. Vinous wine grape as well as sweet red grapes. Some leather and a touch of tobacco leaf.

T: Puckering sourness and a very, very sharp acidity. Some light sweetness and more of the acetone/vinegar. A bit sulfuric.

M: Alcohol is well hidden. Body is spritzy and biting, and it's a bit dense and oily.

O: Enjoyable, but I'd like a touch more sweetness for balance and a slight reduction in ABV to loosen the strings a bit more.

Bottled June 14, 2012.

This is the most delicious beer I've had in a long time. The Cab Barrels really shine through on the nose. Vinegary, sour w/ a strong cherry character. Tastes just like it smells, delicate at first then the sourness hits you and finishes smooth with the sour cherry coming through at the end. A delicious sour beer. I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive...well worth the treat though. I had it with a bit of chocolate...they went very well together.

Aged for approximately a year.

Appearance-It is a reddish/brown in color with very little head. It has a nice reddish tint throughout, perhaps some to do with the raspberries.

Smell-It has a very subtle scent of the raspberries and wine.

Taste-It is immediately complex. The sourness is the first to hit the palate, followed by the wine notes. This is then rounded out by the raspberries. It is just absolutely fantastic!

Mouthfeel-It is very smooth and the sourness puckers the mouth immediately.

Overall-Amazing! The best sour I have ever had!
