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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 2014 bottle: Weird ticklish carbonation that gets much better if you let it sit overnight in the fridge. Sour cranberry smell with an almost vinegar-like note to it. Taste is mostly the same. The vinegar note is present in the aftertaste along with a strange warmth. Original Thumbprint Release: Carbonation is much better (for a sour) and the taste is more focused on the sourness than the new 2014 release. Taste is an 8 and palate is a 4 on the original Thumbprint release whereas the newer one is a 6 on taste and a 2 on palate, so I?ll do an average of the two for this rating.
