3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear red tinged golden with a nice off white head of foam with fine bubbles, that settles to a film and leaves great lacing. Aroma of cranberries, wood and some tartness. Taste has some sweetness mixed with some cider vinegar sourness. Flavors of cranberries, grape skins, wood and hint of vanilla. The sweetness fades and the sourness and wood linger into the aftertaste and finish. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium/full body and effervescent carbonation. Very well blended and balanced flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tastes like tart apple juice with a very tiny amount of funk. Has a good flavor, though like most New Glarus fruit beers, it tastes like juice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, thanks to northernbrews. Reddish-amber with a small head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma seems more like strawberry and raspberry than cranberry and it’s awesome. Some leather and vanilla mixed in the with fruit. Finally get the cranberry in the taste. So much sweet fruit juice but the light to moderate tartness balances great. Some dry leather and light funk. Love this. Almost as good as their big bottle fruit beers but a much cheaper price.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle in a teku. Pours ruby/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of cranberries, some sourness, light malts, hints of oak and funk, and some sweetness. Flavor the same with a nice berry note that blends well with the pretty sweet yet sour beer. Average texture with nice carbonation. A solid beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cranberry/ tart fruit, sweet and sour aroma. Bright light pink appearance with minimal head and lacing. Sweet upfront and finishes highly acidic/ tart that lingers. The overall taste is simple and straightforward. Higher carbonation results in an effervescent light mouthfeel. Overall one of my favorites from New Glarus simple and balanced showcasing how well cranberries work with a lanbic culture.
