Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.
