Straberry raspberry and a hint of tartness (must be the cranberry and lingonberry combo) come from this mostly clear paleish ruby red ale with a white head and tiny rising bubbles. I taste light body tartness followed by citrus then the sweetness of the berries. Not bad for a tart ale. After the aftertaste what lingers on my tongue is what i think the birch and maybe the herbs.

Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light fruity nose and flavor is tart fruit, some sweetness, high ABV is hidden. Take out the hops and it would be close to a wine. Pricey at $14.00 for a 750ml bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

.75 l bottle. red brownish pour, clear, white head. Heavy on the berries and syrupyness, a lot of tart/sour cherries. Interesting brew. Not sure what it really matches with though.

Poured from a bomber. Aroma is of tart berries and a bit of vanilla. Head is off-white and dissipates to one finger relatively quickly. Taste is of cranberry and raspberry and an old world taste. Nice tart aftertaste.

Clear color, little smell. Off taste, too complex. Compete with each other. Palate has medium lasting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from Oak Tree, 2/15/14
Aroma: The nose is sweet and fruity, lots of cranberry and other fruit, plus some sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a pinkish-amber color with a frothy beige head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is sweet, but not cloying, with some tart notes and a little earthy bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth, clean feel, soft carbonation, and a dry, tart finish
This is a kind of a nice fruit beer. Even though it is rather sweet (especially on the nose) it still works nicely due to the balance from the light tartness and the earth notes. The combination just works nicely overall.

Pours a clear amber color. Aroma is a little on the sweeter side. I can smell mslts, berries, figs, brown sugar, and yeast. Thick, yet carbonated palate. Flavors include malts, yeast, figs, resin, brown sugar, molasses, and cranberries. Leaves a sweeter malt finish. These guys are pretty good with their traditional ales. I likes.
