Pours a transparent, rose-amber color with a handsome head of fine, khaki froth. Splotchy lacing clings handsomely to the glass as the beer recedes. The aroma smells strongly of green apple and cherry, with a hint of cinnamon. The flavor is pretty comparable to the nose, with the sourness taking center stage up front before a mild, honey-like sweetness comes through on the back end. The first sip really is delightfully puckering. I don't taste the cranberry so much per se; rather, it synergizes seamlessly with the other fruits. The cranberry actually seems to come through a bit more as the beer warms. A tingly, ascetic sourness asserts itself in the finish, kept vital by the perky carbonation. A distinct cinnamon flavor adds an extra element that keeps the melange from becoming too fruity. In spite of the bold flavor, the finish manages to remain mostly dry. This really is a fantastic sour ale that never becomes cloying in spite of its flavorful character. Another winning fruit beer from New Glarus.
