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 (3111) - 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 (3704) - 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 (1971) - 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.

I expected the cranberries to really make this beer tart, but they actually rounded it out very well. bytemesis (8584) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle thanks to Bob! Pours a bit murky magenta, some chunks and floaties, small fizzy off-white head that dissipates quickly with a bit of lacing. Aroma is funky, cantillon level funk, cheesy basement must, nice fruitiness, but I would be hard pressed to identify it as cranberry. Flavor is medium tart, medium plus funk, pleasant fruitiness, a healthy funk and a bit of mineral water. Fairly low carbonation. This is a first class fruited lambic style beer. Excellent job. ineedbeer (2174) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Poured from a 375 ml bottle.
Aroma is really nice with a moderately strong cranberry note with some lighter citrus and pineapple notes. A medium light herbal, earthy funk note. Light oak notes. A faint poopiness with some medium light acidity.
Pours a slightly hazy, purplish pink with a small, forced, thin, pinkish head that recedes and disappears quickly. No lacing or legs. The first pour was fine, but the second pour was super chunky and full of fruit pieces; this is amateurish.
Flavor is moderately acidic with a light sweetness. Medium high cranberry notes with some tannins. A light juiciness. Some light herbal, earthy funk notes. Some light citrus notes and pineapple notes. Light oak notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a really nice beer in terms of flavor and aroma, but the quality control was bad; it seems like they bottled the entire barrel, fruit and all. Good funk and oak. jtclockwork (16691) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2016

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy ruby with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong funk, oak, berry. Thin body, funky, oak, tart berry, light acidity, very good.
