2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 :(

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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)
