Bottle to snifter (shared with alexsdad06 and DrSilverworm; thanks GAbell). Looks good; a hazy reddish orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart and a bit funky with mild notes of cranberry. Tastes like it smells with a light, tart mouthfeel. Some mild spice too. Good stuff!
