A Note on This Beer
Boozy beer fans have been dying for Avery, aka "the kings of big ABV beer," to make a Quad worthy of their namesake. And when they did, nothing but the best barrels from Woodford Reserve would do for their monstrous 11.2% ABV Barrel-Aged Tangerine Quad.
Aged in award-winning Bourbon oak, this high-proof Quad is then infused with real tangerine peel for a candied fruit, top-shelf treatment of a perfect Old-Fashioned Cocktail:
Bourbon- Woodford Reserve barrels bring their signature vanilla and spice sting to the Quad’s decadent apricot and dried cherry notes.
Citrus- Tangerine’s brighter, tangier take on the pivotal orange slice gives a citrus spike that cuts through the booze.
Sugar- Dark Belgian candy sugar boosts the sweetness, yet keeps the body smooth with caramelized tones that amplify the bourbon character.
Bitters- Spicy Belgian yeast and citrusy Sterling Hops go beyond Angostura, giving the woody bite of oak a kick of zesty bitter.
Designed by Avery specifically to be the last word in Old Fashioned cocktail beers, Tangerine Quad was highly anticipated upon its release. Draft Magazine put it on their 7 New Barrel Aged Beers they had to try, saying: “Avery gets a little ridiculous with this one. Sign me up.” Most of us have had an Old Fashioned before, but Avery’s Tangerine Quad, with all its barrel-aged Belgian richness, might just be better.
