look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an enlarged snifter. I don't see a bottling date.

Appearance: Pours a guava-esque pink with an orange hue, and leaves a small off-white head that slowly fades to a little layer atop the beer. The bottle gushed upon opening.

Smell: Big delicious floral juniper notes, cranberries, white wine, ginger, oak, strawberry, slight funk. Big influence from the gin barrels - wonderful floral gin notes take center stage in the aroma.

Taste: Big drinkable sour cranberry, floral juniper, ginger, other spices, oak, dry wine-like finish. A nice amount of sour, actually a bit more than I thought from the smell, but still quite mild and drinkable.

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a light, dry body. Slightly sour finish,

Overall: Lovely gin-barrel influence and sour cranberry notes take the lead in this one, and make it a tasty, drinkable, gin-like, slightly watered down cranberry juice. This shows off what interesting things gin barrels can do.
