4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Livery 9th Anniversary party. Pours is a hazy amber, maroon hues, small bubbly head. Aromas of cherry chapstick, wet oak, cobweb and a light spice. Taste is loaded with tart cherry flavors. I wish a higher carbonation would have pushed them further. Still, the mouthfeel was of a nice, medium-bodied beer. Plenty of tartness and acidity creep into the finish. More oak, cherry and funk culminate in a harmonious finish. Great stuff!

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Draft to snifter at The Livery. Looks good; a hazy dark amber with off-white lacing. Smells good too; oaky and mildly funky with a nicely balanced cherry presence. Tastes like it smells with a surprisingly smooth mouthfeel, especially considering the abv. Good stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!!!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
