3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. A hazy red beer with a huge pink head. The aroma has notes of cranberries, dusty hops, lemons, brettanomyces, and wood. The flavor is very acidic with notes of cranberries, brettanomyces, wood, sour apples, and vinegar, leading to a very tart finish.

Thanks to Papsoe for this beer, 33cl bottle
This was a gusher that poured reddish pink with a huge head. The flavor was tart, dry with a nice tanginess from the cranberries. I enjoyed it

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby red colored pour. Huge off-pink head. A huge abundance of lacing left behind the egg white type foam that once rested atop the blood tinged liquid beneath. A big fruity, peppery aroma. Earthy. Very tart. Very. Dry and sour. A hint of very sour fruit underneath. Brett. Not bad, but this thing is so tart it is a crime. But I would definitely drink it again.

375ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011, Thursday)
Such a let-down after the spontangrape. To be honest, I don’t like the pink, but at least the big head looks good. Nice sour aroma, but nothing more. Aggressive carbonation. Very dry and drying palate. Acidic and over-carbonated. Totally didn’t work for me, these scores are quite charitable, the grape was so enormously better.
