look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

375ml waxed and capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a huge, 3 finger fine pink colored head with moderate to low retention. Beer is a clear, bright red. Patchy lacing sticks around. Very nice.

Nose is spice and cranberry dryness. Sweet and slightly tart with a nice, lively spritziness.

Opens tart cranberry and spice. Some soapiness and cane sugar in the middle with a dry woodiness. Peppery with a touch of cobwebs and more spice. Finishes a bit hot and tart. Same aftertaste with a big cranberry presence. Slightly awkward but not bad.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down aggressive and sparkling. Dry finish with a filmy, lingering aftertaste. Drinkable.

A unique beer for sure but the pepperiness and cranberry works for some reason. Very drinkable and lively. Worth trying.
