3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. Empty mineral nose. Pours clear dark henna and copper, with a foamy off-white thick head. Flavors come across to me mainly in hops, rosehips, and metallic, sharp malt sugar. Surprisingly bitter and noticeably thin in the cranberry flavor for me, I guess. I mean, I see it there, but it isn’t dazzling me. Was glad to see that this didn’t come across as punishingly sweet. Hard to tell how I really feel about this beer...

Bottle picked up at Arlington Whole Foods and drank in TN. Middle of the roda fruit beer. You get a little tartness from the berries but they’re muted overall. Fine.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Less objectionable than I expected. The aroma is caramel, cranberry, bread. The appearance is clear, deep amber, whit head. The flavor is cranberry upfront, bready. Medium in body, actually a little thin. The finish is tart, cranberry, no hops at all. OK to drink.
