Another solid beer from New Glarus. Their mastery of fruitiness and sourness reaches a rarely seen subtly in this one. Light pink and toeing the delicate balance between slightly sweet and slightly sour. Courtesy of Josh at my b-day party.

Poured an oranges color with aromas of dry cranberries, light malt and some tartness. Flavors match the aromas with tart cranberries and some light tartness. Love this beer could drink this all day.

Bottle from unknown via Chris H. Pours A pale pink, little bit of head. Aroma arch, doughy, some lacto, vinous, yeast character. Not entirely appealing, to be honest. Body is full and lush, with a lingering tartness and just the right amount of sweetness. I’m apparently not as head over heels about this as some, but a solid beer nonetheless.

Bottle (12 oz). From Rich, thanks! Hazy golden/orange with a small quickly disappearing white head and almost no lacing. Aroma is of cranberries, oak, vanilla, light sweetness and light spiciness. Taste is a nice mix of sweet and sour with cranberries, an important wood presence and light spiciness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Cranberries sourness finish. Quite tasty and easy drinking despite the moderate sourness. Interesting balance. Not the most complex brew.

355ml bottle as an extra from elytsdlo - thanks again dude! Epic extra! This pours rose with no head. Aroma is strong cranberries and damp hay bales. Cranberries are prevalent in the taste which follows into a sweetishly sour experience.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 12oz bottle as a bonus from chebyshev. Clear copper with a slight red hue, light white head at first but it completely disappears - lovely colour though. Cranberry, oak, tart, high carbonation, moderate body, huge cranberry tartness on the palate with some yeast, funk, hint of milkiness, and oak on the finish that create a lovely sensation on the palate. Mmmmmm.
