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.

Twelve ounce bottle shared last night.

A: Pours a clear reddish orange with a 1/4-inch thick white head which settles to the rim and leaves spots of lace.

N: Sour, tannic, fruity - cherries.

T: Fruity, sweetly tart, cherry skin and juice, cranberry seems to have faded.

M: Light body and light carbonation. Finish is tart and fruity.

O: Not much cranberry left in this bottle, instead plenty of cherry replacement. Aged nicely, one of my earliest acquisitions. Thanks to whomever added this to our trade way back in the day.
