Big thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Gusher! Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts malty, light sourish, light salty, fruity hints. Could be more balanced. Light soapy-malty finish. Okay. WillemsUrenkel (1984) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2016
0,3 l bottle from my brother Torsten. Thanks a lot. Gushing! But can handle it. Cloudy orange in the glass, mighty off white head. Hopy on the nose with grain in the background. Taste has some fruity elements with fruity low sourness and present hop with decent bitterness. Pepper sharpness and maybe coriander. Without the sharpness and fruity elements no real aftertaste. Rough. adamnowek (3190) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2016
Hazy amber with a rose tinge. Aroma is a bit of freshly pressed cranberries. Taste brings out a bit more of the coriander. DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2015
Tasting at Amelander Bierbrouwerij. Reddish amber brown with a medium off-white head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Nice sweetness with good bitter tones. Malts, cranberries, herbs, yeast and spices. Quite a tasty brew. tandembrauer (1577) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle bought directly at the brewery. Cloudy, dark amber. Strong smell of yeast pluss some fruit. Belgian yeast taste, some bitterness and fruitiness.

Bottle, 300 ml. At home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%. Thanks to ShivanDragon!
Pours a slighty hazy, deep copper coloured beer, with lots of activity in it. Off-white head, tall, thick and soapy. Very good retention. Heavy lacing on the glass.
Lighty yeasty aroma, very hoppy. Candy sugar quite obvious. Fruity too but I really can’t tell if it’s cranberries.
The cranberries much more recognizable on the taste though. Yeast again, the candy sugar comes forward on the aftertaste, finishes with a peppery note from the coriander.
Medium thin body, very dry palate mostly because of the cranberries, good carbonation.
Overall a quite nice flavoured belgian ale but not something I would be looking forward to drink again. Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2013

Bottle @ WWT II. Pours hazy yellow/orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma has some malts, sweetness, oxidation, cranberries not very noticeable. Taste is pretty much the same. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2013
Bottle @ WWT II. Clear amber colored beer with a small white head. Aroma has some cranberries and yeasty. Flavor is quite sweet with a big yeasty character. Quite balanced, decent brew, but nut so interesting.
