Another interesting beer from Dogfish Head. It’s as advertised, a tart beer with sweet backbone. You would not be able to pick out cranberry tartness in a blind taste test, but it’s there. Also for an ALE that is 10% abv, it is very well hidden. Definitely not a must try, but if you’re looking for something different and not offensive you might want to try this.

Draft at ebp. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy thin tan head that settles gradually. Tangy tart sweet nose, showing clear lingonberry note. Creamy thickish body with soft carb. Big lingonberry attack, like the jam but without the sugar, very clear flavor--no malt or yeast stepping on it. Then the flavor flattens completely into a closed out finish.

tillmac62 (478) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a red hue. Poor head volume, lacing and retention. Light nose of fruit (cranberry mostly) over a sweet background. Medium body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish. The flavor profile is rather good, but unique. It begins with a semi sweet background that fruit flavors ride above. Cranberry is predominate, but subtle hints of other tart berries. As the tartness fades, a sweeter note is evident with a herbal hop aspect. The finish is where alcohol is most evident and slowly fades with a tart background.

Hazy , copper/ brown color . Thin, off-white head. Aroma of berries , malt , hint of herbs. Gentle tartness in semi-dry taste with light bitterness in the end. High ABV isn't very noticeable. Another great, fruity experiment from Dogfish Head.

Draught @ Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Pours hazy orange with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, dried fruity and caramel finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

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 (383) - 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.

Bottle from Total Wine. Over a year of aging. Pours a reddish brown with a fluffy head. Aroma is tart cranberry, ligonberry, spices, and cherries. The taste is similar with cranberries, spices, and tart cherries. Medium mouth, delicate tart finish. Moderate carbonation.
