Avery Odio Equum
From Avery – No. 13 – Odio Equum :: Availability: 465 cases produced. Bottled: September 14, 2012 :: Such a strong and ugly word, but unfortunately true. Our vintner friend just doesn’t appreciate the depth and character of the aromas and flavors that Brettanomyces creates like we do. Like you do. But the dude has some seriously fine Cabernet Sauvignon barrels that he shared with us to help create this wondrous sour ale. Our lucky #13 in this series. Aged for 12 months in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels.
Avery Brewing – Aver yOdio Equum – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 7.89% abv.
Appearance: Pours a dark ruby with a thin tan ring.
Aroma: Rasperries,melon vinegar, wet wood.
Taste: Super tart juicy raspberry, metallic bret. Musty wood.

Overall: One of my favorites in the series so far. Much more depth than your average American made Raspberry sour.
