Awesome - bottle shared by the Hoff! I have had this in the past, but never rated it. Big cranberry nose. Hazy red pour with a reddish tan head. Big cranberry flavor followed up by some nice sourness.

12 ounce bottle thanks to mashmaster. Pours a still copper with no head. Aroma has a lot of cranberry and sweet fruits. Tastes sweet and a little tart. Overall, another awesome fruit beer from New Glarus. This is a permanant want for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from puddintane. Pours hazy tan amber capped by an off white head. Nose of funk, cranberries and spice. Taste starts slightly puckering with hints of yeast and cranberries. Body is light, fizzy, and easy to consume in mass. My wife asked where this was from. She said she would be down for a trip. We shall see.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours an unclear dark orange with no head. Smell is sweet and tart berries (maybe cranberry only bc it was already suggested in the title), hint of vanilla, oak. Taste is tart cranberries, oak, sweet, caramel/vanilla undertones, funk. Straight up good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a red orange color with a slight head to it that disappears rather quickly. Scent is mild with cranberries being the most obvious as well as yeast. Almost has the same scent as a cranberry wine! The taste of berries explode as they hit your tongue. Very strong in cranberry with some wheat and yeasts in the mix. A surprising sweet taste and yet it is just right. Not too strong and not too weak. Texture is just slightly bubbly otherwise nicely flat that brings that unique aspect to the table. Definitely something interesting to try for eclectic beer lovers!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arôme intéressante de sirop fruité avec une touche d’acidité qui augure bien. En bouche, un sirop de canneberges très sucré mais comme l’arôme présageait, un fini acide. La sécheresse est à point mais les sucres restent trop longtemps à mon goût.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from rbsg #20 poured a small sized head of frothy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty and cranberry. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The sour flavor contained notes of cranberry and mild citrus.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle via the CheesedMan. Thanks Daniel! It pours a hazy, deep amber color with a fleeting, light tan head. The nose is a musty mix of tart cranberries and earth. The flavor has a little up front sweetness, but that’s quickly balanced by a nice tart cellar character. Lots of flavors going on with this one. Sweat, lemon, cranberry, mineral notes, and funk. Light to medium body with lively carbonation and a lingering finish. Great brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I think I got this from Janderson91 (I think). This was just as surprisingly good as the Enigma I had prior. Light, clear orange color, decent wispy head and some lacing up the sides of the wine glass (I’m a connoisseur after all). Smells like a great wild ale, woody sort of, funk, fruit, easily distinguished from a true lambic but still impressive. Taste was even better, funk, sour, barrel, wood, just really tasty. I need more of this for sure.
