JorisPPattyn (8035) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2010
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...

Acido fruttato da urlo, intenso e penetrante, a cui si accostano note variegate di bacche rosse (non ho la piý pallida idea di che gusto abbiano i cranberries [it. ossicocchi] ma solo che musica facciano). Abbastanza corposa, grado ben mascherato. Questo tipo di aciditŗ, rivitalizzato dallíanima giŗ di per sť acidula di bacche e frutta rossa, a mio parere Ť davvero sublime!

Kestral (506) - Ňrnes, 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. Itís 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 havenít really had cranberries a lot, but I guess theyíre 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. Itís not a sessioner, itís too sweet for that. Itís 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.

This is a great fruitbeer. caramel, citrus, golden, cloudy, tan foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium sourness, Almost a barleywine with this refreshing touch from the cranberry. Even my wife enjoy it (a winedrinker)

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2010
(on bottle) Murky red beer, steady, beige head; looks akward, but cool. At first a small fruity/sour sent; cranberries allright. Then a new aroma; paprika and charcoaled bellpeppers. tasting the beer, it feel like a juice in the mouth and keeps the tartness from the berries. The taste evolves into gets thicker, more heavy. Gets notes of vanilla, tobacco and honey. A nice, rather complex beer, so different, I really donīt know if I really like it.

Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass. Thanks Phil! I LOVE controversial beers, and a raspberry, oak-aged, smoked beer strikes me as being reasonably controversial. Love it! Pours murky raspberry-bronze, with a very thick off-white head, with rather exceptional lacing. Nose is raspberry and smoke, some yeast, generic fruit, and peat also, but very much in the fruit-smoke realm. Flavours are bacony-smoke, with some raspberry. This kinda works, like when your blueberry syrup spills off your pancakes and onto your bacon at breakfast. At first youíre all "Fuck! I donít want Fruit Bacon!" but then the bacon is sitting there in the oil, and the fruit and youíre thinking "it would be a shame to waste bacon". And then you finish your toast, and youíre left there watching your date/girlfriend/wife pick at her eggs, still kinda hungry, and you decide "Fuck it! Fruit bacon it is!" and this is that moment, distilled down into a beer. This is bacon, peat, and raspberry syrup, Together at Last!!! this is an unholy abomination of a beer. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!!!

Pyrmir (3553) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2013
500 ml bottle. Reddish amber with off white head. Aroma at first with massive cranberry, after a while it subdues a bit and sweet and sour notes becomes more present. Taste is very well balanced between sour and sweet notes, lots of cranberry juice. Very nice beer

Gerbeer (2003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a light mahogany color with medium head of big bubbles that dissipate quickly. Aromas of biscuits, light cranberries, and green wood. Flavours of dry mixed red berry juice, some citrus, light malts, and light citrus notes. Not too tart or sour - just pleasantly so. ABV is well hidden. Excellent.

Copenhagen beer festival. After a total disappointment with Svejk, this shows Hornbeer in top form. Hazy brown. Lovely fruity, sour, but not acidic, refreshing. Very drinkable.

olsvammel (3578) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2010
Draught at SBWF 2010 (Elixir Wine). It poured a hazy brown mahogny liquid. It had a fruity flavour with a touch of sourness. Refreshing and easy to drink.
