750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 10/11/2013. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart berries, cranberry juice, strawberry, pear, apple, red grape, honey, toast, bread, light pepper, light woodiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester, fruit, spice, and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tart berries, cranberry juice, strawberry, pear, apple, red grape, honey, toast, bread, light pepper, light woodiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart berries, cranberry juice, pear, apple, red grape, honey, toast, bread, light pepper, herbal, light woodiness, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of yeast ester, fruit, malt, and spice flavors; with a great malt/fruit flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and lightly slick/syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice fruit/spiced ancient ale style. All around good balance and complexity and balance of yeast, ester, fruit, spice, and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Color is an amber red with an off white to cream colored head. Head shows carbonation with tons of tiny bubbles.
Smells of tart berries, fruits, and like a fruity red wine.
Tastes of juice, tart cranberries, lots of honey and spices come through.
It feels like a medium body but also lighter with lots of carbonation.

Overall, this beer surprised me. I expected a lambic tasting beer that would be sour. It has a great balance of tart and sweetness that makes it so delicious. I definitely recommend trying it.

Amber hued with good clarity. A quarter inch head of off white foam covers the majority of the beer. Brussels lacing. Aroma of cranberries and faint lingonberries. The body is surprisingly light but a bit sticky. The flavor is slightly tart cranberries balanced with a bit of sweet honey. You can also sense a light malt base

A: poured into a tulip to a reddish orange with a finger of off white head that fades to a small pool and collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells like grape jelly with a lot of berry notes. very sweet
T: taste is berries with a bit of tartness and honey sweetness. the tartness and the sweetness do battle on the taste buds for dominance. swallow is more berry flavor with a bit more tartness and some herbal notes
M: fairly full in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation. finish is slightly drying
O: Overall a very solid beer. It has good flavors and definitely isn't your run of the mill fruit beer.

Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light fruity nose and flavor is tart fruit, some sweetness, high ABV is hidden. Take out the hops and it would be close to a wine. Pricey at $14.00 for a 750ml bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.
