4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line :
Three-dimensional fruitiness takes the taster from the crushed skin to the juicy pith and its citric lengths as light wilderness and effervescence contribute more complexity and refreshment.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam decorates the beautifully cranberry red.
-Fruit tannins are mildly present, adding to the complexity.
-Flavor intensity is not through the roof, which is appreciated.
-The fruit character is alluring from aroma to finish; great job.
-There is balance between the cranberries and the base Wild Ale.
-This is my favorite of the Mikkeller spontaneous fermentation series I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a deppish red with some slight hazing. Large very pale pink head that last well leaving some lacing. Nice tart aromas show plenty of the fruit. Some acidity, a little candii sugar sweetness and brett funkiness also in support. Slight chalkiness as the beer warms slightly. Flavours initiallyshow a little sweet from the fruit. This is quickly replaced by some intense sourness. Very dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Clear red like coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a huge but diminishing pinkish white head. Slightly fruity and peppery hinted aroma. Full light sprankling palate. Finish is sour fruity with a longer sour dry ending. No clear indication of cranberries but certainly a nice fruit lambic.
