neongolden (464) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bottle during Zwanze Day/Funk Night @ barVolo, Sept 20, 2014) Pours murky medium brown with a huge pale tan head. Aroma of stewed dates, citrus zest, burnt brown sugar, funky overripe fruit, sweat in the background. Flavour a mix of tart red berry, crabapple, grapefruit juice, light acidic quality but brown sugar sweetness as well. There is some bittering hop character at the finish, sour apple too, lingering brown sugar, very balanced. Medium full oily mouthfeel with very very soft carb. I could not have told you there were cranberries per se in this, and didn’t know it at the time, but it drinks like an American-style wild ale with a good sweet malt and fruity core balanced by decent levels of hopping. Feels great in the mouth. Could see how it may not be everyone’s thing but definitely to my taste.
