Beer #201 Avery Nineteen

Avery Nineteen

Avery Nineteen

Name: Nineteen

Style: Tripel

Brewery:  Avery Brewing Co  website

Country: USA

Region: Boulder, Colorado

ABV: 8.23% abv

How served:  22oz bomber with a silver foil wrapped cap was poured into a Westmalle Chalice.    

My Overall Opinion: Very Good.  4 Stars a

I paired this beer with:  Publix lemon pepper rotisserie chicken in a “box”.

Tasted on:  Tuesday June 6, 2013

Notes:  This is Avery’s 19 anniversary beer which was bottled in the spring of 2012.

The beer poured an opaque golden color with a 2 finger white fluffy head which left a thin sticky lacing on the glass.         

The nose was full of cloves and pepper with mild hints of citrus and pears and at the very beginning I got a faint note of banana. 

The taste followed the nose with cloves and spicy pepper mixed with coriander, pears and hints of green apple. There were also mild hints of candi sugar however this brew was not sweet and finished fairly dry.

This beer had a medium body with a low to medium level of carbonation and left a nice warming sensation on the palate.

Overall this was a very good brew and a very good representation of a true Belgium made Tripel, however it was not quite in the same class of some of the classic Tripels like the one from Westmalle.

On the Label:  Bottled in April 2012

Celebrating nineteen years of brewing could kind of get overlooked what with the big 2-0 coming.  But we will never forget 2011!!  Not only was it our largest growth year ever, but we also began designing our new brewing facility!  In excited anticipation of 20 years and the new brewery, we concocted this very traditional, yeast driven, dry and fruity Tripel.

Thanks to those folks (you know who you are) who have been such an intergral part of our longevity and success!

Peace to all and follow your dreams!

Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, malted wheat, flaked oats, Belgian candy sugar, hops and an infamous Belgian yeast.

The hallmark of Belgian Triples are fruity esters balanced with a dry finish that fall in the range of 7-9% ABV. And for this year’s 19th anniversary celebratory brew, we decided to create a stylistically perfect beer—something unusual considering our penchant for producing eccentric beers that defy styles or categories.

Availability: Bottled in May 2012. One and done.

Food pairing: The peppery Czech Saaz hops in Nineteen pair beautifully with a spicy guacamole, and fried plantains with sour cream highlight the banana esters from the Belgian yeast. Because this triple is true to style, we also like a traditional combo of moules-frites (mussels and fries).

Peace to all and follow your dreams!
