My last ephemere for the moment, the cranberry taste is too faint, yet it is well balanced. obguthr (6824) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Lactic lemon and orange. Clear golden, thin head. Crabapple, lactic. Light body soft carbonation. tfontana (1184) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is yeast, champagne, orange peel. Appearance is hazy golden yellow-orange with transient finger width white fizzy head, nice sparkle at edges of the glass, no lacing. Taste is orange, cranberry, berry over yeasty base. Palate is light bodied with thin, foamy texture, lively carbonation and mixture of sweet and tart berry/yeasty finish. Overall, a light, refreshing beer with subtle fruitiness rather than being bludgeoned over the head with it. ganache (6087) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2016
750mL, corked and caged, BEST BEFORE 07-25-16. Sweet nose is huuuuge cranberry juice, sweetened but natural and delicious. Pours utterly clear golden with strong effervescence and a large, rocky cream head. Taste fruity-sweet up front (raspberry fading slightly into cranberry, but the raspberry tones are strong throughout) with a light bready note, drying significantly but never "approaching bone." Mild sour tang as is common with the great house yeast, light esters and phenols, fuller and more satisfying mouthfeel than the medium it really is, sweet orange peel marmalade and airy mineral-yeast combination fade slowly into tangerine and general berry. Not really picking up any coriander. Very faint wood character, a little grape must, some golden ale- or perhaps wit-on-lees, touch of green apple Jolly Rancher. Still natural, but moving toward candy; essentially not far enough along the path to wine cooler that I object.

Will definitely buy this again, digestible and even sessionable.
Appearance: very slightly hazy orange-tinted medium gold with two fingers of fluffy white head, short retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: slightly muted, apple and cranberry, candi sugar, light yeast. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, low bitter, moderate tart. (6/10) Palate: light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (3/5)
Not terrible, by any means, but just not very interesting. Sweet and, if not actually artificial, at least unimpressive fruit flavour. The cranberry character is present, but very mild, and I get the impression that it’s just not a flavour that expresses well in this context. (Unlike, for example, peach or raspberry.) Definitely nothing resembling a real fruit lambic. (12/20)

Bottle Poured hazy orange-pink w/ medium white fizzy head quickly diminishing to a ring. Moderate aromas of sweet berries and flowers. Initial flavor is a very light sweet then a moderate acidic finish. Taste of grapes, berries, cranberry, and sweet-tart. Light bodied, watery texture, and soft carbonation.
