Tap at Imazato. Strong red/ magenta, very pretty, nice light pink lacing. Bright cranberry and raspberry aroma, very jammy, lactic sour notes, very harmonious. Great puckery cranberry jam taste with sour berry skins, nice trail of funk, vibrant intense berries, plenty of acidity. A nice fizz complements the puckery feel, it coats the mouth, quite dry but the flavours last long after the sip. I can't stop going in for another sip, it's very good.

hazy pink purple color. Big tart, cranberry, oak and vinegar in the nose. Puckering sourness, tons of cranberry, tons of oak. Dry cranberry and oak finish. Awesome. KyotoLefty (10611) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2017

Tap at the Imazato Japan launch.
Awesome looking deep purple-red with a pink head. It smells of tart and yet thickly sweet cranberry sauce. The taste is an ascerbic cherries and almond with oak, it reminds me of a Kriek. Damn good.

Sample at Shelton fest 2017. Solid aroma with a light tartness. Cranberry skin texture. Funkiness and fruit melding together well.

Bottle at home. Pours a dark red color with little fuzzy pink head. Aroma is canned cranberry sauce, oak, vanilla, faint funk. Taste is super tart cranberry, raspberry jam, faint oak on the back end. Finishes dry, just like drinking a glass of cranberry juice cocktail from ocean spray. A bit acidic. Nice beer. Would go great with turkey dinner! rxeight (3225) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2017
375 ml bottle, thanks Bob! Transparent light reddish pink color. Aroma is cranberry and cherry, with some lemon and funk. Taste is mild to medium tartness and acidic sour. Juicy cranberry. Kiddie cocktail. Slight wine and oak. Very carbonated. Strong flavors but still very drinkable. koleminer20 (3845) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2017
Shared at the Cycle Weekday 2017 Soirée. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a nice clear bright ruby ish red color with no head or lace. It’s a little pale, but nice. The aroma is full of tart cranberry. There is a pretty heavy funk to it which is nice, the fruit falls a little short on the back end. The flavor is much of the same. The bum of funkiness comes through with a light cranberry. It’s not as fruit forward as I’d like to see, but it balances well. The mouth feel is a little light and syrupy with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly fruity and funky finish. It’s pretty interesting. ebone1988 (2080) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus for the Cycle Weekday Set 2017 Soirée. Aroma is cranberry, tart, sugary, oak, sour, skins, wonderful. Appearance is red, clear, light pink head, lots of bubbles. Taste is cranberry, tart, funk, sweet, oak, skins, very nice. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, cranberry sweet tart aftertaste. Overall, this is quite enjoyable. JeredWaller (2) - Maramec, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 13, 2017 does not count
I have not had many cranberry beers but this blew away my expectations. Not too sour but really delivers on the cranberry flavor, it immediately feels like you’re at Thanksgiving dinner when you take a sip. Good carb with a nice mouthfeel, light pink in color and tons of berry flavor. Overall really great, better than I thought a cranberry beer could be.
