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: Pours a pinkish yellow brew - definitely showing cranberry. Crisp white head is not overly full but decent. Head retention is minimal - a rim around the glass - and little lacing.

S: Wheat smell - light, lemon, and berry is present.

T: Nice mix of cranberry, lemon and wheat flavors. The beer is less present via the taste but really nice for a hot day. Slight sour flavor - almost lambic - probably from the cranberry.

M: Some cabonation and light on the tougue.

O: Great brew!
