ACBF pour, assuming from a bottle

A-Pours a pink/red color. Head has pink undertones and it fizzles away very quickly. It's fairly murky and there is some detritus floating around.

S-Tart, natural cranberries. Mostly underripe cranberries but there was some ripened berry sweetness in there as well. Soggy oak.

T-Tart, sour cranberries. Fresh and natural. Also I get flavors of other types of red berries. Some sweet cranberry as well. Oak and dust.

M-Light bodied. Bubbly. Tannic and slightly puckering.

O-A tasty sour beer that delivers with the cranberry flavor. Straightforward but tasty. There should be more cranberry wild beers out there.

3.16/5  rDev -19.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Strawberry-blonde, extremely cloudy and completely opaque. The beer almost appears as if it has fruit puree blended in; it has a thick appearance. A 2-3 finger creamy white head when poured that dies out completely in a matter of seconds without a trace. Lots of tiny bubbles upon close inspection. Not a very appealing beer visually.

Smell: Slightly sweet berry scent combined with that typical "sour" beer scent. The sour scent was most prevalent. I found the smell too funky and not overly appealing to me. The smell did NOT entice me to drink the beer.

Taste: Starts off acidic then the taste progresses to become mildly sweet with the flavor of the cranberries coming through and finishes with a mild funky, sour taste. Different.

Mouthfeel: Starts of with a slight tingly sensation on the roof of your mouth from the acidic flavor and carbonation, sour on your tongue and the back of your throat with a slightly dry finish. Medium body that feels kind of thick and heavy.

Overall: An interesting beer; I appreciate the uniqueness. I really had high hopes for this beer as it is relatively local to me and I love my sours. However this beer was just okay for me. It was a little too funky for my personal taste. I have had much better and do not see me ever purchasing this again.

Picked up a bottle at Holiday Wine Cellar...

Was really looking forward to this due to reviews and was excited to finally crack this one.

Well, this thing is an oak bomb. There are some cranberry notes, but all you really taste is oak, oak, oak. I like it when a beer has a nice barrel presence, but that's the majority of what this is. Yes, I know the name is Cranberry Woods, but this should be called Wood Woods w/ Cranberry.
