On the verge of gushing, to towering, very dense, fine, amberish-coloured head, tenacious, over quite muddy, dark-red beer. Extremely nice nose with old oak, sharpish wood and fruit (strawberry, mainly), and a faint aroma of sharp cheese. Stunningly good old fruitbeer flavour, that Iíve experienced only once - took me awhile, but it is a blueprint of my Heyvaert kriek - from the eighties. Extremely specific flavourprofile of great lambic, with real cherries, but sweetened with saccharine (which explains the smoked impression, BTW). Short bursts of fruitacids, titillating MF, medium bodied at best, fruit-filled. Superb. I withdraw any negative-sounding comment I might ever have given about Hornbeer products. This is something to pardon any former cardinal brewing sin. NB - the fruitflies like it too. And in the run of years, Iíve developped a healthy respect for their judgment...

espenra (840) - Kurland, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2010 50cl bottle at Olympen. Advertised as only Cranberry Bastard, but the bottle says Oak Aked Cranberry Bastard. Reddish brown colour with a huge off-white creamy head. Aroma is sour and not suprisingly laden with cranberries. Flavour is a tad bitter, but not as much as expected. Cranberries is dominant in the flavour, but thereís also notes of citrus. After the initial tasting it becomes more sweet and raspberries comes to mind as well as brettanomyces, the yeast used in Orvals trappist beer. Short aftertaste. A fun experiment, but not something I could drink several bottles of.

Beer4000 (4323) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Murky brown with a small beige head. The aroma is dominated by fruit. Flavor is fruity with fruity sourness, smoke and a hint of caramel. Very nice and balanced.

bierkoning (9829) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown color. Oak, twigs and red fruit in the aroma. Slightly tart but fruity flavor with oak, red berries and twigs. Earthy notes. Sweetish, thanks to the red fruit. Enjoyable.

5 Sweet fruity cranberry aroma, mostly like cranberry juice, and rather lacking beer
4 Decent reddy brown, small ring head
6 Very much cranberry juice up front, and in the retronasals. Itís only on swallowing that a rather pleasant toffeeish roast malt appears.
3 Gentle carbonation, smooth texture in the mouth. However, itís not all positive. The cranberry juice aspect provides an unwelcome watery sharpness akin to juice. Itís not a lambicky tartness, donít misunderstand.
11 Seems like someone took a good english strong ale and threw in a load of cranberry juice. Thatís just dumb.

Had this one @ CBF 2010. Muddy brown colored brew. Some cranberries and oak in the aroma. Flavor has cranberries, some oak and sweetness.
