Avery Botanicals & Barrels Raspberry Sour

Another addition to the brewery's stellar Botanicals & Barrels lineup, this is a sour ale with raspberries added, then aged in oak barrels. A brilliant mahogany color, it opens with assertive aromas of tart raspberry, lemon, green apple and barnyard. There's a noticeable oak presence throughout, though it's not overdone and doesn't overpower the fruity core, expressed in well-integrated hints of wood spice and cocoa powder. The medium-weight mouthfeel boasts a solid malt core and clean grain presence, through bright, tart berry flavors pick up the palate and the dry finish is all spice and wild funk. Lauren Buzzeo
