2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, picked picked up at Wilburís in Fort Collins as a single. This isnít in the 12 mixed pack this year, so Iím not sure if they got six packs of it and split it up or what. Incredibly cloudy, pinkish brown appearance with a pinkish cream colored head. Somewhat spicy, maple, light caramel, tart mild cranberry, red fruity aroma. Slightly tart, cranberry, light apple, kind of dull toffee, caramel, maple flavor. I thought I remembered this being a lot more tart but maybe thatís just what I thought it should be. This tastes pretty dull.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a dark hazy brown with a reddish-pink hue. Large off-white slightly pink head. Aroma has cherries and cranberries with some yeast and skunk. Taste lacks carbonation. Lots of cranberry flavors, with some skunk. Slightly watery. Aftertaste is a very sweet, and a little syrupy. Not as many yeast flavors as the aroma suggested. Overall itís ok to sip on, but not a good lambic.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
24 Nov 2011, bottle. orange ping and hazy. lots of bubbles at the top, no head. kind of buttery wheat nose. not much cranberry. and more of a wheat beer than a lambic aroma. thin body and fizzy. pretty nasty. i like cranberry and i like lambics. this is neither. has a leafy taste all through with a sort of rotten cranberry finish. terrible!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Eeesh! Terrible, donít buy. Before I even begin, let me get to that. What an awful, cranberry explosion of artificial flavoring and nastiness in my mouth! So the aroma is similar to toothpaste and cranberry juice. I mean both as a negative. Terrible taste, super artificial and generic. The ever-so-slight maltiness to the taste saves it a few points, but I mean when weíre talking about a 2.5/10 beer or a 2.8/10, who can really say whatís worth it at that point? Do NOT buy this beer! 5.9% alcohol.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cranberry aroma and taste was modest but enjoyable. Yeast selection was on the sour/wild side, but certainly not a Lambic. Reddish brown and clear, with modest head.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy red body. White, fizzy head. Soapy, sweet aroma of berry sirup (although it looks ver watery) - unpleasant. Unbalanced flavour: moderately bitter, lightly sweet - very awkward. It has an unpleasant tweak in the bitterness. Added to that, the high carbonation makes it hardly drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very fruity beer that has a lot of the same characteristics of their blackberry and cherry beers

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a beautiful reddish-copper color with off-white head, some retention and lace. Aromas of malt, cranberries, nameless fruity yeast esters. Malt flavor was bready, toasty, caramel plus mild hops bitterness, plus the sourness of cranberries and wild yeast/bacteria. An interesting and excellent balance of tastes. Not exactly "wild" or "barnyard" enough to be a true lambic, but a delicious fruit beer, for sure.
