Brewmaster Steve took his Belgian Amber Ale and re-fermented it in a merlot cask with 100# of sweet Michigan cherries from Husteds Farm Market. He than moved the resulting beer into another cask with 30# of tart cherries. 5 fermentations due to wild yeast and 9 months later, we have our version of a Belgian Kriek. Named after our good friend and musician, April Verch.

From a growler at Cajun Cafe on the Bayou Sour Fest. Pours a hazy amber brown with an off-white head. Nose is some sour cherries, some caramel, some vinous character, some earth, some wood, and some brett. Flavor is similar with caramel malt, some earthy brett, some sour cherries, some sweet cherries, lots of vinous character with added funk. Medium in body and a nice and complex sour overall.

I believe FlandersNed graciously shared this with me at Jackie O’s. My first beer from the Livery. LIving in South Bend for a big chunk of my life I have to say I was definitely excited to try this. Cloudy pink pour with a fizzy white head. Funky aroma with subtle hints of cherries. Spritzy mouth-feel. Tart, fruity and refreshing. Dry I cant wait to try more sours from these guys. send em’ my way!!!

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a nice clear deep red with a light creamy off-white film head. Aroma is delicious, cherries, caramel, sweetness, light sugary. Highish carbonation, dry and elegant mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, cherries, tartness, tomato(?), oranges, viniousness. Light burning in my throat. Somehow it all doesn’t add up.

livery fifth anniv. reminds me of a cherry oude bruine as well but huge acidic cherry notes all over the place, and an intense sourness that pretty much defeats all other aspects of this beer. very good tho

On tap at the brewpub. Pours reddish brown with a thin beige head and a cherry and alcohol aroma. There is a rich malt flavor, very sour with noticeable cherry taste. Nicely aged in a merlot cask, this is every bit as good as some of the better Belgian krieks, but with an American spin.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 On tap at The Livery 5th anniversary party. Poured brown with a yellow hue and minimal head that dissipated completely. Aroma was full of tart cherries with a strong oak note. flavor was slightly sweet with cherries in the beginning, but quickly became tart with a oak undertone throughout the beer.

2009 Bottle - Thanks BBB63!! - Been holding this for a while and was able to share with some friends this past weekend...Pours clear and rusty red with a small off white head...aroma is massively funky, buggy lactic wood, cherry skin and flesh...flavour is similar, incredibly acetic and lactic, but not vinegary in the slightest, intense fruit sourness, tannic oak, smooth vanilla sweetness on the end...no noticable alcohol at all... this was incredible...
