3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby with an off-white head. Aroma of funk and tartness like all the beers from this brewery, cranberries, spices, light malts, and light oak. Flavor the same with a lot of cranberries. Average texture. A really good beer, but cranberries are not my favorite fruit, and there’s a little too much for me.

Taste is a mix of cranberry, tart berry, lime, earthy, oaky notes with a hint of biscuit into a big hibiscus, slight nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger, finishing tart, slightly bitter.

Bottle, tasted 02/17/2014. Pours dark reddish amber, thin white head, thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is holiday spices, peppermint, very light cranberry, slightly medicinal, hay, subtle funk. Taste is subtle cranverry, pronounced spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, light barnyard. Light medium body, drinks easy. Alright holiday brew, but much prefer the base beer.

Hazy rosey tangerine/copper with a thick pillowy white head. Nose is fun and complex with light cranberry and citrus peel, a bit of sour lactic acidity, and a touch of winter spiciness. Tart and sweet flavor with nice notes of cranberry sweetness and lactic sour yeast, oak, orange peel, and a touch of cinnamon/winter spice. Tart and sweet and complex. Very lovely.

Smell was offputting. Sour cranberries with a hint of flowers. Taste was better than nose but certainly wouldn’t have this again
