Some BA aromas, a bit of butter. Sweet and heavy. Palate, however, is thin and dry, even has some grape skin dryness. A bit pink, cloudy, brief head. Drinkable, I guess. Finish has a wormwoody bitterness.

Murky brown-pinky color, small steady off-white head. Earthy cranberry, red wine aroma. Medium-bodied. Cranberry tannines. Dry mouthfeel in the aftertaste, All elements are there nicely in the balance. Probably got some ABV boost from the barrel.
Slightly reddish orange beer with not much head. Aroma has cranberries, sour berries, some sweet fruit flavours. Taste has lots of red berries, cranberries, red cherries, sourness too. Medium body and medium carbonation. Nice cranberry ale.

Sample from bottle at SOPP 2016, Helsinki. Colour is reddish orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Dryness, berries, cranberries, some sweetness and some malts. Better than original version. mjs (7814) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2016
(Bottle at SOPP Helsinki 2016) The beer poured quite red and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had vanilla and tart berries. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, berries, tartness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was dry, woody, tart and bitter. A bit weird brew. Finishing the whole bottle would be a challenge. tiong (7823) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Bottle @ SOPP 2016. Pours reddish with a small head. Aroma of vinous berries, tartness, wood, oak and mild hints of cranberry juice. Taste is vinous, sourish, tart and earthy with some wood, oak and cranberry juice. Finish is tart and sourish with some green apples, vinous berries, lactic notes and earthiness. Not sure if the sourness is intentional or not, feels a bit off. Kavu (5319) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2016
