Surprisingly tasty and a nice sour. Very lacey, on Orange peach body, a great picture.A little funky yeast. Orange citrus taste, the cranberry is there and its just observable. The pumpkin is in the secondary. A good pumpkin for people like me outpumpkined. December 2011 bottle. My only complaint is the cranberry should be natural cranberries and not added in j. Thanks FlandersNed.

Shared with JLindros. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a hazy light amber with a one finger white head that faded to leave a sudsy blanket and light lacing.

S - Typical New Belgium funk here and bright, VERY bright cranberry notes. Deep inhales reveal light pumpkin gourds. Nice oak barrel notes as well. Very, very pleasant.

T - Nice tart cranberry notes, very cranberry with some light light pumpkin finish. The oak is gently mingled in throughout. Very, very well balanced and uniquely interesting. very nice dry almost cranbic finish.

M - Mouthfeel is very, very nice with good carbonation for a beer of the style. Sharply carbonated with a nice acidic finish.

O - Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this unique and interesting beers. Glad I have another bottle of this to age and see just how sharp/tart the cranberry can become.
