smells very good...taste is a bit bitter but unique...malty...almost like modern beer but slightly off. I guess slightly more fruit based...wish it was slightly sweeter...nothing special at all :(

Chalsk (1051) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours and amber color with red and orange hues. Aroma of berry, caramel, and herbs. Sweet berry taste with a nice caramel and tart layer. Well balanced. Not enough hops for me, but I could see how some would really enjoy this beer. Especially if you enjoy berry and sour beers.

Pours bright and amber. Taste is very tart forward rounded off by honey sweetness. Very unique and different while maintaining approachability. Great beer for a special occasion.

Braudog (5591) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. DFH has got to be THE pioneer for crazy stuff like this, wild, quasi-historic styles made with interesting different things. Here’s another great example. Rosy red, amply carbonated, thin head. The aroma is deeply caramel and fir, almost like a Christmas tree. This drinks with a viscous syrupy swirl up front, then brings about a big-time attack of sweetness ... sugary sweet and candied. Pow. This is a sipper, and only for dessert. (#5525, 5/24/2014)

Reddish color with a large white head. Aroma is lightly fruity with a bit of bread. Flavor is tart and fruity with noticeable cranberry. Effervescent and light on the tongue with a sweet, syrupy finish. Wife: 3.75
