12oz bottle, thanks Shawn and Dani for opening this one up today, 2/6/2014.

App- Light ruby-brown body, 1-finger white head that dissipates quickly. A bit of retention, a bit of lacing. Looks very well carbonated in the glass, like a champagne would.

Smell- Very much sour, like Wild Sour Ale was. A non-descript fruitiness comes out, perhaps from the cranberries. A lot of nice dry sugariness at the end. Not complex, but good.

Flavour- Similar to the nose, although the base malts come out more than in the nose. Acidity, sour is 3/10, sweet cranberries. Think Enigma but lighter bodied and crisper.

Mouthfeel- Thin bodied, which is just fine for this beer. Good carbonation, good aftertaste of aforementioned fruitiness. This beer is a bit too sweet for me to down a bottle on my own, even if I wanted to.

Overall- Interesting beer; nothing insanely special but it's a solid fruit beer by NG.
