This was Harrison’s seasonal fruit beer. Served in a small wine glass. But for 3.25, I won’t complain to much about the size. Very murky brown with red hints and a ring of a head. Really perfumy nose. Cinnamon and fruit. Pears, red apples, and cherries. But as a whole the nose with the cereal grains and sugar, it reminded me of fruit loops. ... Flavor is more of that sugarry red fruit with toffee and caramel malts underneath and more hints of fruit loops. Fruit beer is somewhat accurate. I assumed as it warmed that complexities would come out of this beer, but I failed to see any. Ok beer, but it seems far from most barleywines.

Those of you who’ve been to this brewpub will probably be (like me) surprized at this offering on two counts. First, that Harrison’s even has a barley wine on tap. Second, that it’s actually pretty good. Served in a wine glass, it has a murky brownish amber body with some clusters of bubbles for a head. The aroma has a lot of cinnamon followed quicky by toffee, caramel, and a hint of dark red cherries. Pretty smooth, it tastes pretty much as it smells, although the malt becomes more assertive. There’s also a touch of dark dried fruit and other brown spices that are blended in. Not too shabby.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Orland Park. Cloudy, nearly opaque brownish red pour, with a perfumy, sweet and flowery nose, raisin, cereal and cinnamon throughout. Nice, tight finish but no alcohol aftertaste. Outstanding.
