pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Hornbeer oak aged cranberry bastard. On tap at schouskjelleren... Pours a mostly murky deep toffee brown and topped with thin to medium off-white head... Aroma of tart, sour cranberry with a little oak and tart cherry and very light vinegar. Some pale malt in the background... Flavors are much ofthe same, sourness is a little dialed down but then a smokiness presents itself midway through. Medium, pretty full bodied with light to medium carbonation. Nice and different take on a sour/wild. 7/3/8/4/14

ClubGonzo (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle sample @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011. Pours a hazy, near-murky nut brown body with a small beige head. Aroma is oak, cranberries, hints of pine and black berries. Taste has the wooden tones and cranberry thing going all right, along with hints of smoke, peat and herbs. While this might sound pretty awesome, it wasn’t. Weird stuff, and this beer doesn’t work too well in my mouth. Some extra points for originality though, and I can totally imagine someone taking a big liking to this.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2011
Tap@Schouskjelleren. A dark, hazy reddish brown, with a thin creamy beige head. This is like smelling a glass of blackcurrant syrup. It’s insane how similar the aromas are to home made blackcurrant syrup. I made a bunch last fall, so this I know. The only thing different is the slightly smoky note on the nose when it warms, along with the oakiness. I haven’t really had cranberries a lot, but I guess they’re similar to blackcurrants. The flavour is just juicy as hell, loads of berry sweetness and tartness, more wood than in the nose, and more smoke as it warms. Well balanced. Carbonation is calm, medium bodied, which I feel suits it well. It’s not a sessioner, it’s too sweet for that. It’s not very complex either. It was however a damn good drink that I thoroughly enjoyed, if only for its incredible juiciness and similarity to a berry I very much enjoy.

dnstone (2112) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 2, 2011
Smokey aroma. Thick light-tan colored head, murky brownish-red in color. Smokey (too much for my taste) with cranberry juice fruity sweetness (also too fruity and sweet for me).

suprchunk (1955) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a very murky brown. Huge cream-colored head that drops a little and leaves a nice lacing. Very murky. Sour. Little bit of maltiness. Not much nose to this one, which is strange considering the cranberries and oak that is purported to be in here. Very bourbony. Little tart. Sweet with malt. The cranberries start coming out after drinking for a bit and the oak (read: bourbon flavor) starts to mellow. Cloying. Not much, but the sugar sticks to the corner of your mouth and you have to lick it off every now and then. The oakiness starts out heavy, but mellows as you get used to it, but the tart from cranberries picks up where the oak leaves off. Not bad. The oak seems to stick around in your mouth for a bit afterwards. But you can’t ding a beer for that when it’s in the name.
