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

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.

abemorsten (3265) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2015
375 ml flaske i sjøhuset på Fjøløy. Klar sprudlende rød-gyllen kropp med et håndbreddes høyt skum somhenger på glassveggen og samler seg i en liten puck. Deilig og innbydende syrnet øl - og bærduft med tretoner. Det lukter tranebær. Ganske deilg i munnen også. Kraftig syrlig med tydelig bærpreg. Hint av eplesidereddik. Medium fylde. Jeg har hatt denne i kjelleren i flere år, og det har den ikke tatt skade av

tricksta_p (2087) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
Aroma of tart cranberries, oak, barnyard funk, vinegar, fruits. Flavour is nicely sour with a hint of sweetness. Lovely, delicious stuff. Another winner in the "Spontan" series.

mathieuc (2283) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours a clear reddish copper with a small white head that leaves really nice lacing. Nose is of pretty intense bandaid at first but after a while it mellows into cranberries and, light funk and oak. Taste is sour and lightly puckering with some nice fruity and acidic cranberries and oak again. Really refreshing. Never harsh and the lambic character is dialed-in just right. Lightly lemony. Body is light, carbonation moderate and this would pair well with some blasting sun. Overall a solid Spontan, if only all were like this one!

Nickls (2001) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pouts with no real head, hazy ruby punch pink color. Wood, leather, slight berry pit, and a touch sour aroma. Flavor is more woody, vinegar sour, light leather, slight grain and hay, missing the cranberry fruit, a touch earthy and a yogurt tangy finish. Light fairly still body.
