3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is nice with some medium light funk and a bit of acidity. Light lemon notes with a bit of an light herbal, funky note. Light oak with some cranberry notes.
Pours a nice bright pink color with some haze and medium sized, thin, slightly ink head that recedes to the edges where it lingers a bit. Light lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is nice with medium acidity, but soft with some medium light lemon citrus notes. Moderate cranberry notes that work nicely with the acidity. Some light oak and funk notes. Light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice cranberry sour with faint funk notes. Nice, soft beer with a bit of acidity that works nicely. Needs more funk though, but this is otherwise great.

Nice purple red pour. Nose of tart lactic cranberry and raspberry. Flavor initially starts with moderately tart cranberry and raspberry with some light lemon and vinegar before fading to an off-vinyl flavor, raspberry yogurt, light vanilla and wet wheat. Lingering vinyl/plastic. Hopes dashed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Pat’s. Thanks, Jake. Bright red pour without much in the way of foam or head retention. Smells a touch like cranberry sauce. Very fruit forward, if nothing else. There’s a lot of sweet red fruits and also lemon and tartness of the cranberry. Flavor is more dry than the nose would lead you to believe. Big time cranberry sauce. Lemon zest and a pleasant acidity. Slight grass, raspberry, and sour cherry. Pretty good, though not too much going on.
bright red, no head. Cranberry, tart lemon, sweet cranberry sauce, super fruity, some red berries, sweet fruit, dry, nice. 4/7/7/4/15

750ml. Unfiltered pink-red body. Cranberry tones are big, but the sour tones dominate the overall experience in a sort of unruly fashion. OK.
