Flaska en trappa upp, pitchers örebro. Smågrumlig orange kulör. Syrlig doft med tranbär, ceder och jäst. Uppfriskande smak. Tydlig smak av tranbär, fat och äpplekart. Torr avslutning

chilled 375ml bottle. Pours a perfect cherry tinged orange and big foamy head, lasting power could be slightly longer tho. Aroma is a soft mix of cranberry, lambic, kriek. Flavour is tart gueuze with cranberry just below the surface, all well balanced. Very tart finish. Very good. Very, very good.

pours unclear dark golden, orange-red tint, with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. leathery bretts, cranberry blue cheese, fresh tart cranberries, piths, sour bread, minerals. moderate carbonation, light body; assertively tart citric-herbal finish. some rough fruity pith notes but a pretty nice funky cranberry lambic.

As I thought, cranberry tartness fits well with this woody vinegary funky brew. Good stuff. Still a bit expensive, though.

375 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a hazy amber color with a beige head of foam. Fizzy head. Dissipates quickly. The aroma has musty, earthy, dry cranberry like notes. Some oaky notes as well. Strongly acidic and dry. Medium body and high carbonation. Pretty enjoyable stuff.

375 ml bottle. BB 15/10/24. Thanks to Euphemos! Clear red golden color with a tiny whitish head. Red berries, tartness, dryness, cranberry juice and... Cantillon in the aroma. The flavor is sourness, tartness, red berries, redcurrant, mild malt and some acidic notes. Well done Mikkeller... or Proef... or both! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

not sure who shared this, but i am all for cranbears!! .. . ruby .. low foam .. musty, fruit, cranberry, and dirt jam .. mouth is mild and easy puckered .. going into my fat face .. nice, easy on the fruit, good. over priced a bit .. . . The White Power Ranger doesn’t sound like a character for a kids television show.

Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a rust-color with pink highlights with a small light pink head. Aromas of cheese, horse blanket, cranberry and some mineral. Taste is quite similar with some raspberry coming out as well. The funk, cheese and mineral notes are strong with this and it is quite sour, but hides the alcohol well. Wonderful dry cranberry juice like finish.

How: Bottle (375 ml). Split 2-ways.

>>> Superb well balanced and funky cranberry sour. One of the best from the spontan series and definitely the best cranberry beer I have had so far.

+ The beer is a beautiful bright orangey-red color but the head isn’t staying much
+ There’s nice bright funk, especially in the nose, cheesy and mineral
+ Acidity level is perfect, enough to carry the flavor properly and a give a good bite, but not overpowering
+ The cranberry flavor is there aplenty but without the weird astringent notes

Flavors: Cranberies, nice funk, cheesy notes, mineral, vegetal (mild)

Bottle shared with Tom. Clear pale reddish pour with copper hue, thin but tenacious veil of white foam. Aroma is quite fruity, lots of cranberry, lots of lemon juice, mild cheesy notes, mineral, nice funk, winey notes. Taste is bitter and tart, bright acidity, very lemony, sharp fruitiness, very bright fruit, quite tasty. Palate is med bodied, strong carbonation, very dry finish. Tasty stuff, maybe a tad acidic for ultimate enjoyability.
