5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle:   Bright caramel, becomes darker as I near the bottom of the bottle, moderate to large frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Wonderful nose of flora and spices, with wooden notes from the barrel aging.   Very tart up front, smooth, a bit of fresh floral notes, some faint barnish or musty flavors on the exit.   Not too sour, at least to the point of over salivating.   This one is just right, great aroma and flavor, all being very floral like, with a good dose of tarness.   This was a pleasant surprise.   Finish shows a bit of the oak.   Moderate dryness on this one too.   Very well done!   Thanks for this rarity Kevin!

Pailhead (4808) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of strawberry candies, raspberry, light lemon, cinnamon, and oak. It pours a cloudy/murky brownish-orange with a small beige head that fades to a thick ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of strawberry candies and lighter raspberry. The finish quickly hits pretty hard with sour lemon, citrus, and a hint of oak. At times itís mouth puckering. Other times, the sourness seems to be eased by the sweet strawberry. Light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, itís very tasty, but my only slight complaint is that the strawberry flavor comes across as artificial or candy-ish at times. Generally, while I like strawberries, Iím not a big fan of strawberry candies. With that said, itís not like the flavor is overbearing by any means.

I didnít know this was so rare, but Iím happy to have sampled the whole of my bottle. Hazy deep copper coloured body with a nice off-white head that fades relatively fast with a bit of yeast sediment noticeable on the bottom. Aroma of sour cherries, tart raspberries, a touch of oak, some very minor malts and a good sweetness. Medium-bodied; Assertive sourness noticeable up front with cherries and raspberries both noticeable and a good tart puckering maltiness also around. Aftertaste shows a more well-rounded, complex note with some light malt, sweetness and more fruit flavours. Overall, a very nice representation of the style and a great beer to sample if you havenít had the style much, especially from a brewery in the states, especially Michigan. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 28-April-2011 for US$15.99 sampled at home in Washington in celebration for my birthday past on 10-July-2011.

Another big thanks to Ditmier for sharing this. Pours grapefruit juice with weak white head. The aroma has muted notes of cotton, hay, spices, herbs and yeastiness. The taste is pretty smooth with some apples, tart un-ripe cherries, herbal notes, a modest level of tartness and slightly chalky yeasty notes left clinging to the inside of my mouth.

750 ml bottle thanks to Eric (Ditmier) at the tasting. Pours a murky orange almost brown color with a large off-white head. The aroma is oak, funk and citrus. Sweet and dry, lots of fruit, citrus especially, some light sourness and oak, sort of funky. Not acidic but more of a oaky Flemish Brown sourness here. Quite interesting.
