3.55/5 rDev +33%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my Chimay goblet.
Appearance: Pours a very cloudy orangish-brown, with a finger-and-a-half of off-white, slightly pink head. The head subsides moderately slowly. Good lacing.
Smell: Lots of wheat. Some tart sweetness in the background.
Taste: Sweet and tart cranberry right off the tongue, which fades quickly. The finish is tart, and lasts for quite some time. No evidence of the wheat that was in the aroma. The sweetness is a little strong.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, nice and creamy.
Drinkability: I didn't think it was as bad as it's been hyped to be. Definitely lots of cranberry flavor, which isn't personally my favorite flavor, but it wasn't a terrible beer. I probably wouldn't seek it out, but it would definitely satisfy a fruit-beer craving. Decent. One was enough, though.
Serving type: bottle
