Blackberry sets this one off, along with the orange. Very nice wish I could get it locally so I could enjoy it whilst at the house...

If you like mulled red wines, spicy ciders, or strong Chai tea, and have never found a beer that really appealed to you, do yourself a damn favor and splurge on this. You?ll be so glad you did.Side Note: Perfect for Halloween parties and World of Darkness LARPs. This looks like prop blood and tastes a lot better.

Brought this one to Kramers christmas party. Beautiful ruby red color really sets up the amazing aroma. Tons of berries up front with the clove, orange zest and honey sweetness bringing up the rear. Taste is pretty much the same with tons of fresh picked juicy berries and clove dominating with some sugary sweetness rounding it all out. Overall one of the better national releases from these guys. I will have to grab a few more next time.

Pours a cloudy off purple color with nearly no head. The aroma is cloves with blackberries. The taste, like the aroma, is mainly cloves but the blackberries play a role. Full and smooth with ample carbonation. The finish is long and semi-sweet with berries. Very interesting.
