Brewed in the tradition of the Lambics of Belgium but using a blend of Ale Yeast, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Acetobacter. These microorganisms came from our culture collection as well as many collected by Dan around the wilds of Wisconsin! Fermented and aged in Oak. This beer spent the summer of 2009 aging outdoors in used oak barrels. Then bottle fermented. This is a funky and very sour beer not for the faint of heart. If you are unfamiliar with sour or Brettanomyces beers you may want to pass this one up!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle: Orangish straw, bright, faint haze, lively carbonation, soft sudsy white head, little lacing. Tart nose, bordering on sour. Just lots of funky bits happening. Smells good! Sour up front, funky, not too dry. Smooth tho. Not a real big Gueuze, a bit softer, but clean, a touch dry. Moderate body and mouthfeel. A bit woody as well. Good softer example, clean, but wished it lingered a little longer.   Thanks Bob!

Bottle (500 ml). Bottled in 2010. Thanks to MatSciGuy for this one! Bright golden/amber with a small white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of honey sweetness, light sourness, wood and light brettanomyces. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet & sour with honey, wood and light floral notes. Medium body. Light to moderate carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Slightly dry, but not enough for the style. Nice balance between sweet and sour (though it might be a little too sweet). A tad too linear, but still very interesting. Tasty.
