On tap at the brewpub. An unclear dark orange coloured beer with a small, off-white colored head. The aroma is sweetish, resiny and quite fruity, with alcohol and a faint herbal touch. It’s full bodied, warming and soft on the palate, with some alcohol flavors. Bready malts, fruityness and some sugar in the flavor, a nice herbal bitterness too. Lasting sweet, herbal finish. Well, decent indeed, but not my kind of beer. 150621

Bier Abby, Schenectady, NY APPEARANCE - vibrant burnt amber color, very clear. NOSE - Light undistinguishable fruity notes. Hint of the 10.0% ABV. FLAVOR ? Extremely light flavor. Almost tastes like a super light barleywine. But that could be the alcohol in it accompanied by quite a bit of lighter flavored fruits. Complete lack of hops. NOTES - Definitely another interesting recreation from DFH. I thoroughly enjoy it, and think it would be a great session drinker if not for 10% ABV.

BierMeHoos (328) - Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Poured from a large bottle, gift from my neighbor. Appearance is a copper color and a cloudy consistency. Aroma is fruity (hello cranberries), honey, and malt. Taste is cranberries, syrupy, honey, herbs and malt. Palate is good amount of carbonation. Light-bodied. Pretty damn good, but for special occasions or the right food.

jsquire (3727) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2015
Reddish orange color with a foamy ivory head. Berry nose with a bit of tart cranberry. This is a berry forward beer with identifiable cranberry juice taste and something that I will assume is a lingonberry. Honey and white sugar sweetness with a bit of a tart pinch in the finish. Pretty tasty.

Sloe, concord grape. Cloudy copper, thin head. Vinous apricot, cranberries, grapes.Medium body, soft carbonation, warm. Surprisingly not a lot of nuance. Weird and very grapey, not bad.

A semi-transparent brownish-amber color with minimal head. A fruity (cranberry? cherry?) aroma. VERY fruity flavor, kind of lambic like. A nice aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strange, as one would expect from something pulled out of a chemical sample of a clay pot from a few millennia back. Exotic berry aromas are big here, and honey and syrup add a viscous sweet and tangy element. Pours dark amber with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish. Tap at Right proper.
