Reviewing the Odio Equum from Avery Brewing Company out of Boulder, Colorado.
Bottled 09/21/12. Served in a Doom teku-like glass and enjoyed on 06/27/13.
Appearance: Dark caramel in color. Transparent and clean in appearance. Minimal head off pour. Minimal lacing and minimal retention too. Nice color with a fade to a yellowish hue at the edges. 4.25/5
Smell: Oak, tart raspberries and berry jamminess. Red grape sweetness too. A dash of yogurty lacto, but in a complex-imparting rather than prominent way. Candied rapsberry and vanilla notes come through as this beer warms and opens up. 4.75/5
Taste: Very tart! Candied raspberries and fresh raspberry flavor throughout. Some of grape, oak and a dash of vanilla. A little more lacto than nose, but still very slight and not funky at all. Lots of tart sour fruit flavor going on, which I love. This beer is a sweet and sour wonder! 4.75/5
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, low carbonation. Super tart, like a warhead candy in how puckering and mouth-wateringly juicy it is. Truly delightful. 5/5
Overall: This is one of my favorite American sours. Complex, tart and clean. I drank this side-by-side with a bottle of 2012 Framboise For A Cure, which I also love, and frankly this beer practically put it to shame by comparison. I wish I had a case of this brew. I really hope that Avery remakes this down the road.
Cost: $10 for a 12 oz bottle.
