On nitro tap at the brewery.
Pours with a hazy pink-orange body topped with an exceptionally durable white head that leaves loads of sticky lacing on the glass.
A mild and fruity nose.
Flavorful with plenty of fruity notes inckuding lemonade, but no clear evidence of cranberries. A near equal mix of tart and sweet. Refreshing.

I usually don't like fruit beers, but this is an exception. Light on the alcohol, so you can drink more.

Had on draft.
Pours with little carbonation and a light rose color.
There is berry sweetness with a hint of underlying tartness on the nose.
The beer is wet, thin, and refreshing
The cranberry taste is a natural sweetness which does not leave overbearing aftertaste.
This would be great to have on a hot day.

A fruity, light shandy that is nice in the summer if you like the cranberry/lemon notes
