3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a fairly bright dark reddish color with a medium white head, some slow creeping. A fresh interesting nose of berries, some Flemish sour like notes. The flavor is more fresh earthy tones with big berries, pine, some sweet brown malts, caramel. I really enjoy this. The cowberries are unique and tasty. A bit like sweeter cranberries.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark reddish copper with an off-white head. Smells like fruit juice, with blueberry and red berries. Slightly malty and yeasty. Taste is more berries, cranberry-ish, dried blueberry, dusty, yeasty, malty. Slightly tart bitterness that mirrors the cranberry note. Makes sense I guess, because crowberries are in the same family. Pretty light bodied. This was a pleasant fruit beer with something different to offer, but I was ultimately a little underwhelmed.

Everything about this beer and brewery always. Delicious in ever aspect, and gorgeous red carmel pour with a effervescent head. Has a nice carmel body that is slightly bitter and becomes slightly sweet and bubbly. Points for using local and traditional ingredients of course.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 4/29/12. Boring color and appearance. Smell of malt and faint blackberries. Doesn't really taste like anything initially, warms to reveal a bit of caramel malt and not much else. Meh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 btl. Murky medium red amber colour, off white medium head. Smells..crisp berries, some light kriek like sour berry, some light spice/pepper hints, a little malt too. Tastes.. A great balance between spice and fruit. I’ve never had crowberries, but the berry taste is fresh/crisp adds to a palatte cleansing mouthfeel. Quite spicey in a peppery sense, some malt too. I’d absolutely buy another one.
