Big thanks to my 2012 Secret Santa Montrosse. Dude you seriously treated me to some killer beers!
A- The beers appearance is a pleasing golden coloration with a light cranberry splash. I am thinking a tequilla sunrise sort of effect. The head was white and shortly lived. No lacing is noted.
S- The aroma of the beer is a mixture of sweet and tart aromas. Think of Belgian Red with cranberries in place of cherries. Nice floral aromas chase about fresh cut oak aromas. All of these aromas are built on a nice biscuity aroma. Subtle acidic aromas waft about the beer.
T- This beer is all about the interplay of sweetness and tartness. Very pleasant cranberry sweetness and sour layered on a nice malty biscuity base beer. The beer never becomes overly acidic. Its sort of like a moderately sweetened balsamic vinegar.
M- The body is light and nicely carbonated. The beer never becomes overly acidic. This is just a nice interplay between sweet and sour.
O- This beer has a very nice interplay between sweet and sour. Only complaint is I only have one of these.
