Big beige coarseish lasting head. Hazy deep red body. Sharpish sugary cranberry aroma with yoghurty notes. Sweet-acidic wooden cranberry taste with bitter background. Full body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry-bitter sugary cranberry aftertaste with acidic wooden metallic tinge. Interesting, extremely unusual, and quite challenging. The cranberry really makes it stand out.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Pikkulintu shared with Saintmatty (thanks!)
Poured an completely opaque slightly reddish browj body. Gluey, slightly cranberrieish sweet nose, slightly grainy too. Grainy, sweet taste, some cranberry, creamy, lightly alcoholic and yeasty. Some acidity is always there and it’s not all that bad. Overall a well made beer that grows on you but one bottle at the time is enough.
