Pours a nice cranberry, pinkish red color with no real head by the top the glass got to me. Smell is sweet and tart, some vinegar character, and red fruits reminiscent of pomegranate, but not abundantly obvious. Taste is quite tart and acidic, fairly sweet, with concentrated pomegranate flavor, and there is a definite fruity cereal like quality to it. Kind of froot loops-esque in the middle. Overall, good, but not like I've come to expect of the style, but plenty sour enough to give you some wicked heartburn.

22 oz. bottle tried 8 Aug 2007.

Small almost non existent head. Minimal carbonation. Clear dark ruby red color. Aroma is sweet and fruity sour, kind of cranberryish. Sweet and fruity tart, some pomegranite but much more reminiscent of cranberry. Somewhat like a jolly rancher but with a bit more complexity. Finish is quite tart. Medium light body. Light alcohol. Pomegranite becomes more noticeable as it warms.

Fairly tart but tasty.
