Appearance - Clean bronze, messy lacing
Aroma - Blackberries, vinegar, wet grass
Taste - Bitter cherries, lemongrass, tart

This was a very light drinker - most sours are a lot more intense than this one. Still a good drink... I just wished it was with cranberries (I read wrong).

I was glad to get to try this. Thanks Chipalsa. Bottle pour. Body is plain brown with a miniscule head of big clear bubbles. Aroma is of tart berries, some acidic notes, and a touch of funkiness. Taste was pleasing. I got tons of berry/strawberry notes, a touch of tartness, and some tannic qualities. The aftertaste was surprisingly fruity (berries and bananas). Overall I enjoyed this one because the tartness is reserved compared to some of the other sours I’ve had.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle:   Dirty amber, very cloudy, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Unripened fruity/berry nose.   Tart on the tongue, unripened berry that is a bit non descript.   Slightly dry.   Seems like dried cranberries.   Not quite the traditional sour I thought, but still nice.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft, dry, semi-sweet pre ripened berries on the finish.   Its a bit like cranberries, but there is something else.   Decent tart fruity beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a slight ruby hue and an off white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of a tart tropical fruit note with backing sweet grains and red fruit. Flavor has a good amount of earthy tropical with a bit of yeast and backing sweet grains.

Reddish-brown color with a 2 finger off-white head that disappeared quickly. Sour cherries and barnyard funk were the most prevalent aromas I picked up. I also picked up a slight biscuity note. The taste is sour throughout and there is very little hop presence the sour mouthfeel is still there. Overall a great beer even though this is not my favorite style. Worth trying out if you can find this ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, at the brewery. More or less clear, just a little haze. Amber in color and topped by a thin layer of off-white bubbles. Quite fruity aroma, very smooth, with the crowberries quite evident. Smooth, tart and dry on the palate, with berries and some lemony sourness hints. Fruity, berryish finish. A refreshing beer that maybe was a bit young. 111015

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt, as well as some cherries, grapes and light funk. The flavor is a little bit more complex than the aroma. I get a lot of vinegar and acetone, as well as some leather and tobacco notes. There is also a little bit of cherry and grape notes, but they are hidden in the background. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Smells of a flemish ale. More vinegary than tart. Lots of berry flavor...in particular taste big strawberry notes.

Bottle. Pours red. Nose/taste of tart berry, caramel, cherry vinegar, old wet wood and musk. Some hints of bandaid off notes in background early in the bottle. These off notes went away after mixing in the sediment at the bottom. Light acidity. (My rating is with the sediment mixed in and the off notes gone) Medium body.
