In my experience, if you really want berries then you might like "Cardinal" or "Robin" better. Note that they both have maroon colored new growth. "Oakleaf" is known for its unique foliage shape and year round green foliage color, it is also more columnar than the others when it is young. "Festive" is special because it has tighter growth and can be sheared and kept in a relatively small pyramid shape. Without pruning, they all grow to about the same size. If you do prune often, you would probably limit or prevent berry formation. I hope this helps.
