Brown 750ml bottle purchased at The Lighthouse in Manchester, ME. Pours a mostly clear ever so slightly hazy pale amber liquid with about an inch of bubbly off white head that dissipated after a couple of minutes. The scents of honey and cranberries immediately hit the nose with an herbal background. The flavors of cranberries, with some citrus, vanilla, spicy clove and with a woody finish. On the first sip, bubbles hit the tongue. the liquid s very effervescent, it tingles my nose. Can't taste the alcohol in the beer, but leaves a slight herbal aftertaste in the finish. In my opinion, this beer is delicious! Although I am almost half n the bag as I write this ( I have only had half of the bottle so far). I can definitely say it was worth the 12.99 + tax and deposit! I can't wait to finish this lovely bottle!

Cheers!!!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a clear ale with slight reddish hue. Heavy lacing. Small head that fades quickly with a large amount of disproportionation in the bubbles. -3.75

Smell - The highlight of the beer. Aromatically very complex. Cranberry leads the attack in then fades back to open up the smell of lingonberry. Very powerful and fruit forward on the nose. - 4.75

Taste - Cranberry fruit forward attack with a strong acid presence on the tip of the tongue. Originally a 3.5 but the palate on this beer opens up a lot after a few sips. Honestly beautiful with nice acidity , herbs come forward as well. The birch comes forward on the finish melding with the cranberries bitter qualities for a mellow long finish that lingers with cranberry flavor. Very nice in further evaluations - 4.5

Mouthfeel - Nice bubbles that coat the palate but fade quickly. Coats palate lightly but also fades quickly. Nice and smooth. - 4.0

Overall - Excellent, let a small amount warm up in the glass so the bouquet opens up as well.

Pours a reddish orange color with a 1" head that slowly falls. The aroma is of cranberry and other fruits. Big fruity flavor as cranberries and other berries create a nice flavor. Mild bitterness overall. Alcohol is well hidden here. Slow sipping but refreshing overall.
