jsporrer (1167) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2017
2014 Bottle. Pours a cloudy rusty orangish brown with a thin white head. Some sediment in the pour. Crisp, tart, sour fruity aroma. Nice tart taste that is lightly sour with a dry cranberry flavor and lots of oaky wood notes. Nice long tingle on the tongue and a good lasting aftertaste. Great with a Thanksgiving meal.

yngwie (17356) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle, 75cl corked. Courtesy of meilby. A hazy orange colored beer with a good carbonation and a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Flowery, lemony aroma with some vinegar. Some berries. There's a faint spiced touch too, both in the aroma and flavor. It's quite floral and berry-ish, with a bit too much vinegar in the flavor. Hints of strawberries, some powdered sugar and a flower touch. Sort of candy-ish, still on the tart side. Lasting finish. Very pleasant, sure a bottle that needs to be shared though. 171111

cards04 (2949) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 23, 2017
Such an interesting beer. Never had anything like it. Pours a milky thick, pinkish red. Aromas of cinnamon hearts, tart cranberries, vanilla. Beautiful mouthfeel. Silky, which is rare for a sour. Flavours of tart cranberries, cinnamon and vanilla. Tastes like a scented candle might smell. Completely delicious.

DenverLogan (1318) - North Bend, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2017
From a 750 bottle into an Anderson Brewing tulip glass. Pours gold-orange with slight raspberry colors, head and lace. Aroma of lightly tart grain and citrus water. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of lightly tart citrus-cranberry juice with some lactic sourness. Overall very flavorful, balanced, and easy to drink relative to other Cascade mouth puckering sour tart delights.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Mandag i annen. Pours hazy amber with cream coloured head. Aroma of horse stable, medicine, effervescent powder, spices, lemon. Taste sour, with some fruity sweetness and a little salt. Complex.

alexmate (335) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
OK, but I can't really warm to it. Taste is of Cranberry juice, some spice mainly cinnamon and much more subtle than you would expect, bit of orange zest as well. Aftertaste is sour, it had me puckering up like a little old granny giving a kiss to her god son. Tried at a tasting.
