Generally a big fan of Avery, Avery Old Jubilation Ale left me with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. Don’t worry, though, I won’t hold it against them since some of their other offerings have truly been outstanding. I am also willing to concede that maybe the moons are the starts were aligned just right and my tasting was a bit off… so if I see it again, I will have to buy some more to test my first reaction.
As far as the taste goes, this is a hoppy, sour beer that brings you a very bitter aftertaste. At 8.0% ABV, this beer doesn’t hide the alcohol and it may even be a bit over the top. In the end, the complete package just doesn’t deliver, keeping this in the middle of the pack.
