Served in a wide-mouth chalice just for fun, closest I had to the traditional Berliner Kindl Weisse glass.
Color is an electric kool-aid reddish pink, with a finger of foam that melts away quickly, fading into an island of patchy skim, and a crescent shape of bubbles clinging to the opposite side of the glass.
Tart cranberry and vague wheaty aroma, some cranberry juice.
Crisp and puckering sourness, seems a touch more intense than Blue Lady & Well Read, but in the same ballpark. Simple and clean, more tart cranberry up front, finishing dry with some fleeting aftertastes of cranberry and sourdough yeast. No off flavors to speak of. Would make a nice apertif or sunny day quencher. Made a milkshake by blending half cup of Cranpire, half cup of cranberry sauce, 3 tbsp cream cheese, and 1/2 tbsp of strawberry vanilla sugar, and it tasted like cranberry cheesecake.
