Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2011
Near black beer with a small tan head. Aroma of cranberry, dried dark fruits and dark sugar. Dry and rather tart with the cranberry acidity, brett and wood adds complexity to the flavour with a hint of sugary sweetness in the background

thewolf (12079) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2011
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours murky dark brown with a lovely, staying, creamy, beige head that leaves wonderful laces on my glass. Aroma is oaky, there are some clear tannins and the cranberries are obvious. Mild caramel with some plums and light roasted malts. Low, but prickly carbonation, really lovely dry and creamy palate. Flavour is fairly sour with that wonderful extreme dryness from cranberries. Clear sharpness from the berries, mild sweet plums and raisins in the back. Oak dryness in the finish. There is a lot of cranberry character in here, but thankfully, Im a sucker for cranberries - hence the high rating.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2011
On tap. Pours an opaque dark brown with a rough yet lacing beige head. Strange aroma, some wooden barrels and a tart fruitiness. Medium body, oxidized woody accents, quite tart with a very distinct cranberry note. In the finish things gets pruney, very overripe indeed. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. I never was much of a cranberry fan. This just confirms why. 060511
