Bottled on 07/30/14.

Pours a reddish amber. The 1/4 inch off-white head quickly disappears completely and leaves no lace.

The smell is of cinnamon and honey with a faint herbal presence.

The taste is herbal up front with faint berry sweetness and honey.

The texture is medium bodied with low carbonation.

A solid effort overall. The berry and herb combination works better than I expected. I dig the idea of recreating ancient recipes for the modern world.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 6/10/14, thanks Phyl21ca for sending the bottle

A glowing amber with some of the tiniest bubbles I've ever seen and lots of them and they just keep coming, two fingers of dense light tan foam has decent retention leaving a few patches of lace

S gummy bears and wine gums, spruce tips, honey, cherry jolly rancher and cough syrup, has a minty, earthy thing going on that's hard to place but interesting

T lots of earthy herbal notes with lots of cranberry and cherry with a hint of booze but well concealed for 10%

M has some body to it, a little syrupy, slick on the palate and just a little sticky on the lips, gummy candy and herbal notes I can't place linger

O something different that's for sure, interesting and unique, drinkable for 10%, worth a try as its unlike anything I can think of

I 'm not sure if I'd look for this one again but I'm glad I tried it once, I could've swore this was listed as a Kvass yesterday, oh well

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. No lacing to speak of.

S: A very fruity aroma (the advertised cranberries), honey, and malt.

T: Tasted of cranberries, a syrupy quality, honey, herbs and malt. This is an odd flavor, but somewhat likeable. It's fruity, but herbal. Not quite as substantial as you might think, but still pretty decent.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: Since this is the first kvass I've ever had, there's no context for it. Still, this is an unusual beer with some great attributes. A typically off the wall Dogfish Head concoction.
