One of the highlights of our trip to Colorado was going to Avery. It was an awesome brewery with lots of indoor and outdoor spots to hang out in. They also had a lot of rare beers to sample, which was awesome. They had smaller sampler sizes to get, so I could have a bunch of beers while I was there. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Since 1993 our brewery has been committed to producing eccentric ales and lagers that defy styles and categories. Our beers are thoroughly American at heart: blending Old World tradition and expertise with ingenuity, creativity and boldness.”
Random: I love the glass that this beer was in. I’ll have to get one.
This beer poured with a quarter finger of pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and orange in color. It had some carbonation visible. The nose had a significant sourness to it with lots of vinegar. There was some leather along with a touch of vanilla as well. The taste had a lot of berry fruit, along with vinegar sourness. I picked up limes, white grapes, lemon and currants. There was also an undertone of kumquat as well. I picked up some leather and vanilla to attempt to balance out the sour fruit. The body was on the medium side with generous carbonation. The finish was lengthy and mouth puckering. I liked this beer a lot, but I couldn’t have more than one.
