Pours a brownish/amber color with a tan head. Smells slightly vinegary, as I sort of expected. Sweet bread and toffee malts are there. Some hints of dark fruit and a bit of oak/barrel aroma. The flavor has a nice tartness with notes of vinegar and cherries. A few other dark fruit notes in there as well as the sweetness of toffee malt. Not an overly impressive beer, but in no way bad or offensive.

750 ml bottle shared by Chris- thanks again! Pours a cloudy amber-hued brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, cherries, plums, earth, and brown sugar. Funky, tart, and sweet. Same with the flavor but without as much tartness. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Solid oud bruin.

2/25/12. Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Mild aroma with definite brett and maybe a hint of cocktail with black cherries. Sweet somewhat malty entry followed by brett, black cherry, and cutting dryness. Not bad!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep brown, thin to moderate sudsy head, sparce lacing.   Tart unripened cherry and oakish nose.   Very much smells the part!   A bit more softer, make that way more softer on the tongue.   Minor wood notes, soft semi-sweet unripened cherry, and not all that dry.   Its tart at best, with a somewhat decent woody background.   Listed as Sour/Wild, seems like Sour Red/Brown to me.   A pale one at that.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pale finish, faint unripened cherry, oak, general woodiness.   Normally at this stage this style would be dry and tart/puckering, but its not.   Very beginners like if you ask me.   Still clean and okay.   Thanks Bill!

Sampled at thirdeye11’s birthday party. Glad I got to try this one. Brown in color with some tart cherry notes initially coming through in the aroma. The flavor begins similar to a classic brown ale with some light toffee and nut notes. However, there is also some tart cherry notes, but they are fairly faint. There is also a hint of funk and some light cocoa from the base beer. Not very sour, but I believe the sourness that is there adds to the base beer and makes this a unique drink.
