Sample while checking out the expo at HomeBrewCon. Slightly hazy light copper color with a decent off white head. Tart berries light earthy herbal something to counter. Weird for sure but it kind of works.

chinchill (4001) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Large botle served in a Belgian snifter. Bottle Date: 8/6/15 Appearance: slightly hazy copper-amber; not much lacing gets left on the glass, though. Aroma: fruity, moderately strong and pleasant. Suggests both tart and sweet elements. Hints of honey and berries. Taste: Strong. Tart and sweet in about equal measure, with a bit less bitterness. Cranberry is pretty obvious; lingonberries less so; birch syrup not at all. Suggestions of plums and faint cherries. Feel: Near medium carbonation. Medium-full body; near puckering tartness. Overall: very interesting but not challenging. I’m glad I got to try this. Caution: very well hidden alcohol.

CObiased (264) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bomber - Weird but well made. It looks like a typical amber ale....clearish colored amber ale with a med off white head. However, the aroma is fruity....cranberry, sour plum, wild yeast and raspberry. Tartness! I taste more cranberry, dry hibiscus, crabapple and a hint of cereal malt.

oldrtybastrd (4914) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2016
Pours a deep amber. Aromas of dark berries/wood and a hint of grass/hay. Flavor of semi-sweet malts and mellow berry taste. I was really surprised by the overall flavor of this beer, excellent.

patrick767 (3918) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2016
bottle - Pours amber and smells mainly of tart cherries. I see it doesn’t have any cherries in it, but that’s what I thought of. It has a sweet, malty flavor with loads of tart berries. It’s medium to full bodied and the 10% abv is mostly hidden. Very enjoyable and interesting beer.

Leafs93 (2059) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is earthy, cranberry, raspberry(maybe the lingonberry) and herbal tea. Taste is acidic berry bitters with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, slick texture and overall very solid. Dangerously deceptive 10%, delicious.

Headbanger (3773) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draft 2/5/15 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours amber with a small head. Aroma of berries, malt, dried fruits, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew was not bad but was not sure what to expect either.

Nice Amber body with tab head. Aroma of barn yard and taste of bitter cranberry, malt and a hint of sweetness.
