750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bright clear red body with a nice white head. Thin collar. Smells remarkably bad. Butterscotch really doesn't blend well with the rest of the aroma. Light berry and acidity for as long as I can keep my nose in it. The butterscotch doesn't come through quite as horribly in the taste, but it's still there. Sour cranberry. Butterscotch. Light body. Well carbonated. Pretty darned gross.

Pours orange red in color, clear, with minimal head. Taste is cranberries, orange, and sour mix. Tart but not overly so. Another winner from Night Shift. I will do this one again.

Looks like cheap flavored vodka, but tastes great. Tart, clean, wonderful.

750ml caped bottle into Night Shift Reserve stemware. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a foamy 1 finger light pink colored head with no retention. Beer is a crystal clear bright red. Lacing is spotty with moderate stick and thin, filmy legs. Just above average.

Nose is cranberry, strawberry and an aggressive yeastiness that tickles the nose. Decent.

Opens tart cranberry pulp and seed. Puckeringly sour in the middle with a cinnamon and red fruit sweetness bridging the middle and end. Yeasty at the finish with some foam, cut wheat and a seedy saltiness in the aftertaste. Very unique.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Tart and super dry in the mouth. Dry going down with a bone-dry finish and a filmy, sticky aftertaste. The driest berliner I've ever had... no doubt due to the cranberries.

Cranberry beers in general aren't that common but this one really stands out in that it really showcases the tart and dryness of the fruit A really interesting and tasty beer.
