look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly

A very unique nose, some definite acidity but it is balanced by a malty sweetness. A definite rum-like character, pineapple, strawberries.

Slightly tannic but that works with the sweetness, balanced with the tartness, just a touch of acidic burn on the back of your throat lets you know it is working :)

Full mouthfeel, some sours can seem thin due to highly attenuative yeast but this is not the case here.

Overall Avery has made a really unique sour. Definitely not traditional nor for everybody, but if you want one with a fair bit of sweetness and heft, you will not be dissapointed, just wish I had more.

4.49/5  rDev +5.9%
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.
