12floz, 2016 edition, bought September 2016 for $3 as a single, poured into a tulip glass where it appears an orange-red color with a beige head. Lactic is in the house, I can smell it - berry fruit and dank. Everything just comes together well for this beer, better than my perceived first impression from a year ago. This can settle in well with New Glarus other fruit offerings, because it is done similarly. Yet not as sweet as the Red and Raspberry that I'e tried before. Tart and tangy, lemonade and dried cranberry are flavors that hit my palate with a good deal of effervescence. I like a good fruit beer that is sweet and lightly sour.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/15/2016. Pours slightly hazy reddish/pinkish/orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light pink head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tart/tangy cranberry, raspberry, cherry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, pepper, oak, wheat, cracker, light leathery funk/vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cranberries, fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/tangy cranberry, raspberry, cherry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, pepper, oak, wheat, cracker, light leathery funk/vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic tartness and light yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart/tangy cranberry, raspberry, cherry, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, pepper, wheat, cracker, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of cranberries, fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an amazing malt/tartness balance, and zero astringent/puckering flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/dry, acidic/creamy/grainy, and lightly tannic mouthfeel that is insane. Absolutely perfectly balanced. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an insane fruited sour ale! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of cranberries, fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modest acidity. Absolutely perfectly balanced flavors with incredible complexity. A highly amazing offering.
