TheAlum (7041) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft on tap at The Source (Denver, CO). Pours a deep dark brown hue, some blackish depth with just a hint of ruby glow. Cakey frothy tannish head atop. Good stick around, lacing is ok and pretty. Aromas are a bit deep and dark, cherry, oak some carmelized malts. Gentle toast, spice and faint smokiness. Some funky brett, farmhouse and straw. Initial is a bit deadened, toasty and carmelized. Some sour dark fruit, black cherry and oak. Some earth, funk, and more oak. Firm wood influence, gentle spice. Middle is a bit more funky, brett and cobwebs with oak, basement and house yeast spice. Backend is a bit more tart but some bitterness comes in, earth and gentle sourness tapers out, tannic oak. Ok, a bit funky, the sourness never rally asserts with some solid red fruit influence. Nose a bit deadened.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle:   Nice aroma of sweet and sour vinegar, under and over ripened cherries, with a bit of oak as well.   Similar tongue, smooth, very tart, not an overly sour example.   Good balance.   Seems to have the right amount of sweetness to that tart aspect.   Clean, doesnt linger too long.   Very solid example of the style.   Could stand to be just a touch chewier, but as is its fairly smooth.   I like how its not overly tart or has a long lingering sourness that makes my mouth water.   Better for us acid reflux peoples.   Good stuff!

Bottle: The aroma consists of cola sour cherries, light lemon, vinegar, faint dark fruit, and vinous notes. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cola and a touch of vinegar. The finish has light sour cherries, lemon, oak, dark fruit, cognac, and oak. Its medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat thin mouthfeel.
