Aroma of cranberries, yeast and a bit of malt. Slightly hazy golden amber color with a significant white head. Starts with sweet fruit, which passes to somewhat tart cranberry. Then some clove and banana arrives. The finish is mostly tart clove and banana. Interesting.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of Alraomon. Thanks! Pours a clear red color with a medium head, decent head retention and good lacing. Aroma is cranberry, cotton candy, cheese and oddly, smoke. Taste is primarily cranberry with that odd meaty smokiness again. Aroma and taste are a tad bit artificial. Weird stuff.
