Opened in August of 2015. The years of aging has this drinking awesome. The sharp fruit notes have mellowed to rounded out mellow tones. Almost creamy smooth. Worth the wait.

A - Creamy brown sugar head on top of a dark brown beer.

S - Moderately sour aroma with a great interplay of nutty malt and peaches. There is a corn husk smell you might get from bourbon, and slight oak, too.

T - Loads of cherries and red wine tannins. The toasty, nutty malt really shines, even though the beer is punishingly sour... in a good way, of course!

M - Medium body and covers the mouth with tannin sweetness. My only complaint is that the beer has a much too sweet aftertaste.

O - Wonderful malt forward sour with a nice touch of tannin character. Absolutely worth seeking out!

Ok, first off has anyone noticed all the awesome sours in the background of this beers picture? Holy shit.

12 oz bottle poured into my Duvel tulip. Bottled Aug 17 2011.

A- Pours a dark brown color with slight ruby hues around the edges. Creamy khaki color head just barely covers the top of the beer. Very fine bubbles, its a nice change of pace from sours that dont have much of a head.

S- A ruthless blast of funk on the nose. Sweet green apples, tart fruits, the oak starts to shine through, grapes, wine, acidic lemon. God this smells great, im hoping the taste follows the nose here, my mouth is watering.

T- Delicious, mouth puckering sourness. Green apples and white wine, followed by relatively strong oak notes that creates kindof a clashing buttery flavor on the back end but its just barely noticeable. A little sweetness on the palate, acidic lemons, more wine, Brett funkiness, lingering oak. Amazing.

M- Mouthfeel is thin, carbonation is good, not as dry as i would like it, but im not very concerned about it.

O- This was an amazing beer. I get so stoked on sours that i tend to give high ratings, but this one is definitely deserving of the badge of honor im giving it. Drink this one slowly folks, it sneaks up on you. Bravo Avery, bravo.
