Avery Ten

Avery Brewing Co

USA

Bottled in 2003, to celebrate their tenth anniversary, brewed with "a very complex blend of 10 malts, 10 hop varieties added 10 different times, 10% abv, and 10 years of brewing excellence", you'd think this beer woulda tasted better. Most likely the aging muted the hops presence, but I was a little put off by all the riotous fruit flavors pinging around in this otherwise pleasant beer. At least the alcohol wasn't aggressively present, like so many other big beers. Still, I wish I could've tried this beer when it was younger; Avery's beer are, for the most part, pretty darn hoppy.
