Another from Skyview. Sour fruit with wheat and yeast. Pink in color. It really is sour, with fruit and yeast. Thanks to Skyview for this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Soft pink color. Great first tart fit, and then fizzles of flavor like a fireworks display in my mouth--a bright hit against a dark sky, and then gone, disappointingly. A little sickly at the back end. The fruit flavors are not multidimensional enough. There is some classic pungency that suggests the brewers have wider visions of the lambic/sour style. A great effort. (growler shared by Skyview)

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Growler] shared by skyview. Pours a rosy clear pink with a smallish off white head. Aroma is slightly underripe crabapple and a touch of plastic. Flavor has a fairly sour/tart front that fades quickly. Berry flavor that isn’t immediately identifiable as cranberry and still a touch plastic-y

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler courtesy of Skyview. Clear, light pink color with a medium head. The cranberry aroma is there, but not as screaming as I had expected. Definitely some wheat and hay. Much the same in the taste, though the cranberry is much more pronounced. Light tartness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the brewpub in downtown Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a clear salmon colored brew with a light pinkish white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a spotty white lacing. Aroma of some apple, tart berries, cranberries and a touch of wheat malt. Taste is slightly tart/sour with more cranberry in flavor than its aroma with a nice wheat and golden grain malt background. Finish continues its semi-tart berry character aftertaste with a slight metallic texture. Definitely would try this one again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The newest beer on tap at Grumpy Troll. Pours a clear bright pink colour with no head. Aroma is of strong over ripe fruits- peace, lime and cranberries. Sour taste, lemon and green apple flavors. All around i thought it was decent.
