3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

Smells slightly sweet and berry like with some spices. The taste is dominated by the berries, very tart but not in the way a wild ale is, as it warms it sweetens considerably. Overall it’s a good beer, cool concept but not something I would drink all the time

From a capped 750 ml bottle purchased at the North Coast Coop in Eureka, CA. Pours a reddish copper with a beige head. Good lacing. Nose is a melange of fruit aroma with berries, herbs and birch. Medium body. Flavor moves from berry into birch as it warms. Other flavors here adds complexity. Really interesting and unique brew. Quite good.
