Avery Brabant (No. 1 in Barrel-Aged Series)

Avery Brewing, Boulder, CO
Brabant Barrel-Aged Wild Ale
Bottled Feb 10, 2009. Production: 694 cases
8.65% ABV
12 oz. Bottle

OMFG, this beer is a horrendous carbonated cherry cough syrup. Avery brags on the side of the bottle that they are “all about” making beers that “defy styles and categories”. In this case, that also means brewing a beer that is seriously overpriced and mega-gross. Frankly, I don’t care that this dark ale was aged for 8 months in Zinfandel barrels.  It may as well have stayed in those barrels forever.
