2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Citric and sweet aroma, some not-so-sweet, dried berries. Cloudy pale pink colour. Small head. The flavour is sweet and berryish, a little grapefruit bitterness actually balances the beer. For some reason, it is actually quite drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
What a strange beer. 33 cL bottle pours a clearish, dark gold -- no real head, just some sparse, frothy bubbles that quickly disappear. Fruity, sweet nose reminds me of that syrup in a can of fruit cocktail. Interesting, mildly sweet and lightly tart flavor. Fruity notes remind me not of cranberries but brighter fruits, like pears, nectarines and blood oranges. Relatively soft carbonation with a slight, citric acidity. Light, metallic bitterness persists in the aftertaste. Could be worse. Damned interesting, anyway.

Bottle Clear, orange body. White, frothy head. Soury aroma of wood, grapes, sweet wine wine, ...Moderately sweet, lightly bitter fruity flavour, but not in an annoying cloyingly sweet way. Moderately bitter flavour. Quite different but nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very white head, going fast, leaving some faint lace over hazy orange beer. Genever nose, like juniper-gin, alcoholic and some medicinal smells, but not bad. Cranberry - but moulded ones, a bit oxydized malts ending very tart, very fruity. Dry, extremely tart palate. Very interesting beer, loved it, even when maybe, somebody looking for classical fruit might be nonplussed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (BB 03/2009)
Pale hazy orange-red color, not much head. Interesting strong alcoholic cranberry aroma. Cranberries dominate also flavor - berries’ skins and seeds are also there in the taste plus some wheaty and yeasty notes. Very interesting fruit beer - when we get cranberry-lambic?
