I'm not crazy about fruit beers in general but DH is one of the companies that does them well, so I gave this a whirl.

Initial reaction was non-plussed at first sip, but it grew on me more and more. There's a bracing grapefruit-rind-like bitterness on the back end that's really pleasant, and the fruit quite reserved, but there. I kind of wish they'd skipped the cranberries and gone all-lingonberry, as that would've fit the Scandinavian theme better. Herbs are well balanced, hard to place - either dill seed or caraway, maybe both in there. The more I drank the more it seemed to reveal - but most important, in a chilled glass it was just wicked refreshing on a hot August day. Good stuff.

A: Somewhere between red and brown and gray; not attractive. Weak head. Bright bottle art is appreciated though.

S: Not a ton. Some cranberry and other tart fruit- I guess that's lingonberry? Some sweetness. Mostly I get something like a molding cleaning rag. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and say my glass is somehow dirty, even after just coming out of the washer.

T: Wow, the lingonberry really comes through here! For real, cranberry and a hint of cherry, leafy herbs definitely present as well. The honey is restrained, just enough to give a bit of sweetness. I overall like this, but the flavors muddle together and form strange, pleasing, frustratingly indistinguishable notes. Alcohol is well, well hidden. Finish is a chameleon, just like the rest of it, and stays a polite amount of time.

M: Mouth-drying, a little filmy, but light enough to be pretty drinkable.

O: Good, no doubts there. Gimmicky? Yes. A breakthrough beer experiment? No. Repeatable? Yes, for a pretty conservative price. Should you try it? Sure.

Split with duffextracold while watching reruns of Brewmasters (I now know why DFH beers are so pricey - they seemingly dump a stuck batch of beer every other episode).

Coppery pink color with wispy ring retention. Smells like cranberry and bread crust with a metallic copper element. Cranberry juice dominates the flavor profile with a little wheat bread and pollen must. I don't get much honey or birch syrup (never having had birch syrup I don't know that I would be able to identify it if it was obvious) but having brewed with cranberries before I'm assuming it's balance out the acidic tartness of the cranberry/lingonberry which is mild. Lingonberry is pretty much viking cranberry right?

I don't care for this beer in the sense of it being tasty and pleasing to drink. I love this beer in the sense that DFH allows me to take a journey back to fermented beverage history. Thanks for brewing.
