Poured a caramel amber murky color with about three fingers of frothy white head. Sporadic foamy spots of lacing all the way down. Great retention all the way down.

Smelled cranberry, raspberry and dark cherry. That’s pretty much it.

Tasted much better, in fact it initially reminded me of a sour. Got sour cherries, cranberry, Sweet Tart and raspberry. Really enjoyed it.

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long sour finish.

I really enjoyed this beer. Reminded me of a lighter sour.

Pours a hazy orangish pink.... good white head with good lacing... I swear there is a pink hue in the head.

Allow this to warm up some to get the fruitiness... The cranberry is a little light IMO.. it shows as a tart cranberry essence on the finish... a good grainy Kolsch supplies the backbone... With warmth the fruit shows up better.

Very, very drinkable.
